The Start Of Something New - July Instagram Diary & Monthly Roundup

Ah the start of something new.

It's such a fantastic feeling.  A mixture of nerves and excitement and thinking whether you've done the right thing or not!  New adventure, same old me.  I'm keen!!



Life
July has been both a quiet month but also a big one for me.  I am now a student of design and next year hopefully I'll be a graphic design students and I am loving how everything is going.  I've just finished my second week back and I am LOVING it!  I'm studying at Tafe and it's so different to university.  It has been fun to adapt to a different learning style and situation but I'm still going to be using everything I learnt from university and taking that through to Tafe so I keep on track of everything.

I've met a heap of new people and we've all got our spots and computers in the classroom that we all like to use which is  bit funny.  I've chosen a computer that is second from the end and I like that because I'm not on the end and only have one person to bounce ideas off.  I sit between two guys and the ideas just bounce around and it's so productive!  But we also then just shut off and get on with everything so it's great!  My spot faces a wall but I also am facing a wall but just to the left there are huge windows so it's nice to be able to see the outside which I didn't get to have with my desk at uni!

But long story short I am loving studying design and for once in a very long time, I feel content with how my life is going.  So I'm happy!

Music has been interesting.  And I use the word in interesting in a not so happy way.  We were meant to be competing in an A-Grade section at these music championships but we're not anymore because not enough people were fronting up to rehearsals.  While I completely get that people have lives outside of music, everyone made a commitment to music and when people just don't take it seriously that annoys me.  It's like a group assignment on a huuuuuge scale and we clearly got the people who didn't want to do anything.

So that was annoying.  But also a relief.  Because if we had gone ahead and competed it would have actually been a train crash on stage and no one wants that.  So it's kind of a good thing but also an annoying thing.  Especially when you have people who spent hours and hours and hours learning how to play the test piece and it's all kind of for nothing?  Sure I know how the play it but the end goal was to play it in a competition setting and now we're not doing it.  Many sad faces.

BUT WE HAVE TO INCLUDE A POSITIVE ABOUT MUSIC!  I am now a percussion player in a little band who is playing in an ungraded section!  The kids in this group have only been playing for a few years and gosh they are so adorable.  They toot their little hearts out and it doesn't matter that they're out of tune, they are just enjoying it so much!  I get to play the timpani (living out a life goal here!), the bells, tambourine, scraping a cymbal with a coin and also the highly technical triangle.  I have a triangle solo and also a timpani solo and damn I am keen!

Instagram
It was in June's Instagram Diary & Monthly Roundup that I mentioned when you hit milestones and then it goes straight back down and you've no longer hit that milestone.  Well.  Ya girl hit 500 followers on Instagram and it just went up from there!  I'm not about numbers because I genuinely don't think I have the brain and mindset to do all of that social media numbers business but woooo !

Also because I will do a little shameless self promo in my blog...  If you're not following me already on Instagram you totally should!  And let me know as well! ;)  < @emmadaisy___ >

Ah my precious little blog!  I've done an alright job of keeping to my schedule, slipped up a couple of times but still I'm pretty chuffed.  Now that I'm studying again, I'm going to have to really really knuckle down with scheduling or reduce my weekly blog posts from two to three.  I don't know what I'll do at the moment but you'll be able to see what's happening on my blog so see how everything is going!



I hope you lovely folk all had a lovely July and am ready for August.  I'm trying to not get sick so wish me luck!  Damn horrible flues!!

Until next time, keep smiling :)  Em xx 

PS!  Come and say hello!!! :) x

  1. Wow, how cool that you're going back to school! I'm excited for you. Shame about the music stuff though - it's so not cool when other people don't pull their weight! x www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x

    1. It has been so much fun! Even though I missed out on a week because I've had the rotten flu!! I'm still annoyed about music but what can I do about it now? Atleast now I'll be able to enjoy the other performers without having a heap of worry on my shoulders!! Em xx
