I haven't written anything remotely personal or non-art related, and I'm sure I'll end up mentioning art somewhere in here, but for now I'm all set to ramble about life in general. In the UK Summer is upon us, with it the Olympics have arrived although it looks like our Summer is already over (rain and thunder setting in today). The Olympics is exciting and the opening ceremony was absolutely beautiful despite my mis-givings (along with most of the countries) that it would be terrible. It wasn't. I'm proud that my country has had a turn to show off what we're about - and we did it well, I think!
I have spent the weekend with ~TouchedD
- I mention him here and there, and he does a lot of my design work having made my website
and designing the headers for my various deviantART articles. But above all that, he means everything to me and we've been friends for some years now. I introduced him to deviantART a while back and so our friendship has continued across many realms of the internet. Suffice to say, our friendship has only grown stronger and materialised into something even more special as time has gone on, culminating in this weekend and being able to spend some time together. Thus I now share with you the apocalpytic place we were in this afternoon!
Beautiful isn't it?
It's not even August yet, but I'm preparing for September and the craziness that comes with signing up for two years of university at once. I'll be juggling assignment deadlines and exam dates until June next year as of September and October which will be an interesting test of whether or not I can maintain my grades! It's exciting though, another year closer to finishing my degree.
The rest of the Summer brings for me a few more photography jobs, lots of university reading and the odd summer read on the Kindle interspersed with exploring the local countryside and ensuring that Buddy is equipped for the sunshine...
