Updates on Year 3

From the beginning, this Entangled Curiosity WordPress blog has served as a place where I documented the learning process of whatever unit I was doing. Some of the blog posts were actually being assessed as parts of the assignments. I can’t really say I haven’t enjoyed the little satisfaction of looking at the archive, of what I have managed to put together in the past 2 years. It is a mess because I haven’t treated it with much care. But at least now that my course is going to an end, and if I am ever asked what I’ve learnt at university, I will know exactly where’s the place to go.

Anyways, Year 3.

In case you haven’t noticed, besides the joy of writing 10.000-word dissertation on a topic of choice (still can’t decide whether it’s a yay or a nay), we also have two other units: Major Project & Professional Practice. The reasons for their existence are:

Major Project: to put your theoretical and contextual studies into practice.

Professional Practice: to prepare you for the workforce by putting professionally both of your theoretical & contextual studies, and practices into a proper portfolio/CV that is to be sent to employers the moment you’re finished at university, or even before that.

(& Thesis: to write about whatever topic you’re obsessed with, but essentially to look at them from your course’s disciplines -e.g: How do you look at the impact of social media on teenagers from a Design Management & Cultures student’s perspectives?).

None of these units requires a blog post,  but I guess since I’m still here and still keeping track of their process in one way or another, it’d be nice to share a few screenshots of what I’ve been up to recently academic-wise.

Major Project:

Currently working on the final proposal.

Me writing this is actually me procrastinating from getting this done:

 

Thesis:

 

Mayhem! Madness! I see chaos, I see messes.

But things are falling into place and I am now super excited to get this all written down and so I can actually go out there and explore everything on foot.

Professional Practice:

I don’t really have anything to show. Most of what I’ve done has something to do with Emotional Intelligence, Strength Finder test results or reflective writing, so I guess they exceed the level of personal information allowed here on this blog. But if you are curious and want to discuss EI and Strength Finder, or how they get involved, don’t hesitate to message me or leave a comment.

Ah, also:

Sam  Since I only have classes on two days per week now, I decided to fill my time with a Screen Printing Induction, which has two separate sessions. I’ve finished part A last week and about to have the second one next Thursday, so excited! I hope I will be ready to get some Christmas cards printed out before the break!

We also had an introduction to Web Design, which, in my opinion (not exclusively), should have been considered to be in Year 1. I had lots of fun nevertheless. Look at what I’ve managed to do:

I know. IT IS MOVING!
