...Is a pretty daunting prospect right now. I have just taken on a new job at my existing work as a Community Champion. So it's basically fundraising and creating a lot of positive hoo-har about the store in the local area. It's an Ok job but not enough hours and I really want to step away from retail completely now I've finished uni. Which is easier said than done really.
On a positive note I have sold a necklace via the degree show! Its going to the Vice Chancellor of the uni for his personal collection apparently. I'm just really gutted I undersold myself with the price. I could have charged so much more! But considering I wasn't expecting to sell anything it's good going. It's covered my costs anyway so nothing lost.
Now the job search continues. I really want to do some Youth work, guiding them with options etc once they finished school. Something I never really had. Hence why I'm graduating age 25!
Starting the Metapod business workshop on Thursday which is a free business course to help people set up on their own, and network. I'll admit I am not the best networker in the world, so I guess good practise!
Anyway. there's a quick update. (I'm trying to blog more, honest!)

Well, that's it! Uni is officially over. Here is the 3D Design section of this years degree show.
As you can see there was a mix of medium on display from furniture to Jewellery, I think we all pulled it off pretty well. Now I'm not going to lie our course has been handed the shit end of the stick this year with a lack of support and guidance towards the end, so I think the final turn out was pretty good.
We were all left slightly disgruntled by the lack of promotion and marketing done by the University, as usual like any establishment of that kind they invested more in making themselves look good than praising and promoting the students work on display. As demonstrated by the 'Industry and Business Evening' in which the 'business and industry' faces were lavished with refreshments for over an hour in a separate part of the campus leaving the students with work on display wondering what the hell was going on... I think we saw 4 people all evening as the curators of the event failed to mention our course existed.
Saying that though a lot of positive comments have been made from people who did see the show. And that is awesome! I just had my expectations set a bit too high in regards to what happened at degree shows I suppose.
