It’s week 8 and I really need to start breaking the research topic for my dissertation into something more manageable, because it’s currently looking like a PhD-worthy thesis.
So, I’m in my final year of university now and here’s what I’m working on (academically) until June 2019…
- A dissertation
- A “major media project”
- A collaborative interactive-video project based on the “transience of memory”
I totally intend to use my blog to scribble my ideas down and keep a record of my progress.
Yeah. I should have started this sooner, but there’s no time better than the present so… here we go.
Just to catch you up:
I was interested in exploring the topic of fintech, but seeing as I spent 14.5 months full time at Starling Bank (where I’m still working part-time) for my placement year and it looks as though I’ll be heading back there full-time from next summer – I decided to use this academic year to explore something else. I’m aware that’s a missed opportunity.
I’ve always had an ongoing, internal debate with myself about LGBT+ topics and so I decided to settle on this as my area of study this year. Being a gay man is kind of a big deal to me, so I’m looking to cover LGBT+ topics in my dissertation and my major media project.
It’s now week 7. More ramblings incoming very shortly…
Solidity is lost, change is inevitable, and for me this seems to be one of the only constants. It’s exhausting, but wonderful at the same time. As a Millennial – a generation of renters, techies and low-budget travel-goers – I know I’m not alone in this scenario.
Amongst the chaos, I’ve managed to squeeze a much-needed week off. Life has been a rush for as long as I can remember, so it has felt a little strange applying the breaks, but it has been refreshing to just walk, eat, drink and gather my thoughts.
Ever since suggesting and then voting for a referendum on membership of the EU, politicians on all sides have caused a great amount of uncertainty in Britain and across the world. This is proven, no doubt, by the incredible results in June 2016’s Referendum and June 2017’s General Election, and it affects each and every one of us. This uncertainty has revealed deep divisions and problems in our society. So, what do we do now?
When choosing who to vote for in the UK’s 2017 general election, you may be thinking things like “I support [candidate/party], but they won’t win here“, and then you may begin to ask yourself questions like,”How do I make my vote count?”, “What do I care about most and which of the largest parties in my area supports those things?“, or, “How do I stop [party leader] from entering Number 10?“. If you are thinking these things, you’re a victim of our not-so-great democratic process.
SimplyLet is a lettings agency in Guildford that many students use to get a place to live whilst studying in or around the town. I’ve personally been renting a house from them with 3 other friends and I’m shocked at the service we’ve received. Here’s why…
I was a big fan of the affordable, feature-rich Nexus lineup, so when Google scrapped it and launched their own Pixel brand of phones I wasn’t particularly happy, but with Pixel 2 on the horizon, I think I’m ready to embrace it.
