πŸŽ… Christmas in Plymouth πŸŽ…

Hi everyone!

It is officially that time of the year! With a just few final deadlines left before Christmas, term is coming to an end. People are beginning to head home, the big day itself is getting closer and there is such a nice atmosphere at the moment! Despite the dissertation deadlines and coursework hand-ins, we have been making an effort to do as many festive things as possible for our last Christmas here in Plymouth! I thought I would share some of the things we’ve been up to.

β˜ƒοΈ Christmas On A Student Budget β˜ƒοΈ

Hi everyone!

For students, Christmas can become expensive. You want to get everyone a good present, but it can quickly add up when you start buying various bits and bobs! Giving people gifts is one of the best bits about Christmas, but I always think it’s the giving part that is more important than how much money you have spent. We decided as a house to do a Β£5 Secret Santa, which is a fun way to give everyone something nice to open but not have to feel the need to spend lots of money. For family and friends, I decided to make some little acrylic paint pour canvases as gifts. I’ve done this before, and every time I am surprised by how quick and easy it is to actually do! Put aside a few hours, and grab something to protect your carpet from the paint (it can get quite messy). You will also need:

πŸ“š What Is Third Year Like? πŸ“š

Hi everyone!

Being 7 weeks into my third year of BA (Hons) Fine Art and Art History, I can confirm it is fairly stressful already! The scary β€˜dissertation’ word has been mentioned, along with lots of reading to do for various modules and trying to make artwork in the studio too! I thought I’d run through what a week in third year so far looks like for anyone who is wondering – I did one of these last year and it has changed quite a bit! The way the joint honours programme works can be a little confusing, but you definitely get used to the swing of it in no time.

πŸ‚ Enjoying Autumn in Plymouth πŸ‚

Hi everyone!

Since writing my last blog in September, it is now somehow November already?! The weather is getting colder, it is getting dark earlier, Halloween has been and Christmas is just around the corner! Third year is proving to be fairly busy and stressful at the moment, but at the weekends we’ve been making time to get out the house and enjoy ourselves! I told myself that, with it being my last year here in Plymouth, I would make the most of the beautiful location and get out to do lots of new things and explore new places! So far so good, so I thought I’d go through some of the things I’ve been getting up to.

Hi everyone!

I can’t believe that September and starting university again has already come around. I hope everyone had a great summer! I’ve just started my third year at Plymouth, and a few weeks ago I moved into a shared house with 6 other girls. It can sometimes be a bit tricky to adjust to being back in Plymouth at first, especially when you wake up in a completely new house with different people! It was so nice having a week or two to just adjust and settle into the house, so I thought I’d go through a few things we got up to!
