This morning was different.
I woke, not by my alarm or the knocking on my door from a housemate reminding me that it was a ‘school day’ – instead I lay there in utter comfort as a ray of light shone on my face. It was 9:30am and I wasn’t late or even early for anything…
I suppose it shouldn’t come as such a surprise (me being a student and all) but in a strange role reversal it is exactly because I’ve been working so hard at school that I am not used to having time off.
The last taught module of my Masters degree ended yesterday. It was a magazine module where we had to – you guessed it – make a magazine. About a month ago everyone had to come up with a magazine business plan and pitch. It was to be presented to a panel with the winning bid given a month to be produced. The winning bid: mine.
I took up the role of editor and after assembling my team around me, we got about working on it. I will not spill the beans of what the ins-and-outs of the magazine is – due to it being my copyright – after a month’s hard work of leading, designing and editing the magazine: butter has finally been sent off to the printers..
Isn’t it just swell? I must confess however, that I owe the totally awesome front cover to the brilliant artist Julia Schonlau who was kind enough to let me use her design.
Imma get my drink on at the wrap party tonight…
