March has been a weirdly busy month, I say weirdly because it hasn’t actually been that busy. I’ve just been ill for most of it so I’ve had lots of work to catch up. It’s also been a pretty weird month for weather too. Only in Scotland could you go from snow storms to blazing sunshine within a few days.
The month started off with a little trip to GOMA. I’m not actually a fan of modern art but this museum is free to get into so it’s always worth a visit. The particular exhibition we went to seemed to be about rubbish being turned into art (rubbish isn’t art imo), but they had covered the windows in paint which looked pretty cool.
March was also the month where I hit 500 posts on my blog. My 500th post was actually my March: Plan With Me. I had been planning on doing a big post round up but haven’t had time so I’ve decided to shelve it for now. My blog will also be turning 5 at the end of this year so expect something big then instead.
I finally wrote a post about how I edit my Instagram photos. But in a weird turn of events I haven’t actually uploaded anything to Instagram since. I got into a habit of putting things on Twitter instead. I should really go back to using Instagram though cause I like it.
I went to see Beauty and the Beast a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. I’m going to do a post about it at some point but it will be similar in style to the I Didn’t Like Cinderella post. Everyone seemed to really like that style of liveblogging a movie which is good because I enjoyed writing it.
I spent about a month creating the logo for the Anti Fascist Babe Club run by Liv over at Petticoats and Patriarchy and I finally got to write a post all about it. I really enjoyed working on that project and it you’re interested in finding out more about the AFBC you should definitely sign up to the newsletter.
In my March PWM I mentioned that I was transitioning from a bullet journal style planning system to the more classic Filofax style. Well I ended up buying a Dokibook from Love Doki and it’s gorgeous. I could do a blog post on how I’ve got it all set up but it won’t be anywhere near as interesting as my bullet journal posts. It’s really just lists and lists and more lists. #artstudentlife
I’ve also been working on a few fun projects just now for class. One involved redesigning the cover of To Kill A Mockingbird which is much much harder than it sounds. The other was all about editorial design which is seriously the most fun. Like I think I’m going to try making a zine at some point this year because I enjoyed it so much.
And the most exciting thing to happen in March was my sister getting engaged. Which also means I may be turning into Bridget Jones.
