Hello Everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend:] Today I finally returned to class after a two week break (spring break, I guess) and it was good to be back. The second week of my break I dedicated it to rest and working on my magazine project which was due today. My day went pretty fast but I had butterflies up until after I gave my presentation in my magazine class which was our last class for the semester.
If you remember from a previous blog I mentioned that I was developing a magazine and the name I proposed was Lipstick. Well for our final project in the class we had to mock up a cover and a double page spread(DPS) in a format that we would want our magazine to be and a flat plan of the content we would want in the issue. It was interesting to see and listen to the ideas of the other students but while listening to them I must admit I was very nervous for some reason to give my presentation. I was not doubting my idea or what I had to present I just have been this way lately when having to give presentation in my classes here. My magazine -as I said before- is called Lipstick and it would be targeting women ages 18-25- around university age- and I pictured it being a biannual magazine, spring/summer and autumn/winter. With the continuously growing blog phenomenon it would be somewhat blog inspired in that the content in the magazine would be written by bloggers to give a different but relative perspective on fashion, beauty and pop culture. I could go on but that is the just of what I had proposed and below are images of my mock up. After my presentation today- once again- a huge weight was lifted of m shoulders because it is one less class to worry about for the semester. My weeks may feel wither longer or go by faster now that I have only one five classes out of the seven that I originally had. The classes here finish so much sooner than back in the states and it is a bitter sweet feeling but I am enjoying my time here very much. I have already been seven weeks in the UK and now just seven more to go until I go back to the states.
This week I have four more classes to go and on Friday I am going to try to get some tickets to see The Children's Hour with one of my friend from school. Hopefully I make it early enough to get the 15 pound deal and for good seat too! I will definitely be letting you know how that goes. Until next time!
