Slowly but surely and most definitely certainly.
A wee update for you, but mostly for me, to keep track of my ups, downs, and most definitely my slow but sure progress. Event design has taken a back seat as I focus on getting my feet back firmly on the ground.
The most exciting news is that I have been accepted into Auckland University of Technology and will be packing my suitcases, bags and trunk next year and re-locating to the big city of Auckland where I will be doing a Bachelor of Arts in Event Management. My Father and I visited this crazy busy city a few weeks ago. I thought I had better introduce myself to Auckland and make sure she was certain she wanted me there. Because of this acceptance and my almost certain re-location for March next year I have been working frantically to save, as Auckland accommodation is not the cheapest.
So apart from doing a few decorations and invitation design for some friends and family, I have spent the majority of my free time exploring the greater Wellington region, pine forests, parks and bush tracks with some willing friends. Oh! One thing I can report back is I found a wonderful graphic designer to create me a logo and header image for my website. Give it a couple of weeks and it should all be up and running.
I have such big dreams and aspirations when it comes to event design and sometimes it’s so incredibly frustrating when things do not seem to be moving forward but I cannot stress the importance of taking time to just be, and making time for all the little things you always want to do but never get around to doing. It’s so good for you sometimes to just be. The below video is a beautiful and constant reminder of this.
