Positive Mental Attitude. Although it's a phrase that probably derived from those horrible self help books it is something that I try and keep in mind when things get on top of me. At the moment I'm hunting for internships and jobs. It's been a mixed bag really, some designers I have spoken to have been really helpful and kind whilst other have been just out right rude. I get that people are busy but as I always say, it's nice to be nice. Anyway I'm staying positive and hoping that something that fits me perfectly will come along soon!
Currently feel like this:
Self belief is awesome. I refuse to let dickheads ruin my day & so should everyone.
Anyway back to the job hunt! Bye!

Back from New York after having the best 7 days ever! Fallen head over heals with the huge cultural melting pot that is crammed with the friendliest people. In between doing the classic tourist stuff (which I highly recommend, it's cheesy but amazing!!) I managed to pop in and see a couple of design studios too, the highlight of which had to be the Saatchi & Saatchi offices. Everyone was so friendly and there was such a positive atmosphere in the studio, felt like a home rather than an office.
Oh and apparently in New York, Dolphins are raping everyone? These stickers were everywhere!
I miss it so much but I've come back to Carlisle totally revived and ready to finish out the last part of my degree, starting with exhibition prep and ending in New Blood and (fingers crossed) some form of employment. I've just got my new website up (www.sarahgill.co.uk) so if anyone spots any teething problems that I haven't I'd super appreciate it if you'd let me know. Anyway, din dins are over now, back to work.

Environmental sustainability in design is something that's close to my heart (thanks to researching it for 8 months during my dissertation) and I'm finally getting round to finishing off my ipad app to promote and help designers in this area. There's a total lack of education on this topic (especially in BA design degrees!) and I'm really hoping that when I go down to New Blood I'll be able to talk to some design companies that can help educate me more in ways to make sustainability at the forefront of my design work!
I'm finally looking forward to graduating, although it scares the hell out of me it's starting to scare me in a good way now. Finally getting some confidence which is good because if you don't believe in yourself no one else will! Also the countdown to New York is getting nearer and nearer which I'm extremely excited about!
Anyway, back to work!
