The last few months have been pretty exceptional for me and I have had to make some difficult but necessary decisions. It’s taken time to iron out the impact of all these things and to work out what is important and what needs my attention. Inevitably, lots of people have given me their advice and shared experiences with me and it’s been really useful to bring much needed perspective. But at last everything has come together and things have been resolved, so now it’s time to move on.
So today, Saturday 21st May, is ‘day one’ – I’m setting out (and hopefully keeping to) some goals to finish writing up my PhD and completion of the practical components. I’m going to write more and work on a range of projects around education, photography/video, digital media and anything else that makes sense to me now. Social media wise, I’m also going to continue posting on Instagram (which has pre-occupied me recently) and to keep trying to work out if there’s any real point in SnapChat! I’m also going to keep posting on this website although Twitter doesn’t feel like it has as much purpose as it used to have – which in itself seems an interesting shift.
Immediately, I’ve got some conferences to attend and speak at and some exhibitions I want to go and see, so already things are looking busy. I intend to develop some more web-based projects, like Periphery.
