Hello peeps. I’m going to be a bit quieter on social media over the next few months. I’m in the last semester of the Masters in Product Design for the Circular Economy and I’m going to have to focus on that until end of December. Fear not, I will still be publishing blog post and updating the blog.
This week’s been one of ups and downs for me. The new Covid-19 restrictions in Dublin are starting to bite. I was just beginning to get over the impact of the full lockdown in March when we cafes closed again, and now no guests in your home. Honestly I’m finding it a huge struggle. Working from home means my interactions with people are limited at the best of time. When I do meet people it’s normally in a cafe or in my house. Yes there’s Zoom and Skype but really they only achieve so much. I’m finding it particularly difficult now that I’m in the design phase of my Masters. Normally when I’m at this stage I make a point of going out and about, absorbing sights and sounds and gathering inspiration. I’ve tried to pivot towards other stimuli over the past two weeks, but they’ve been poor substitutes. Ah well, could be worse.
Moan over, now onto some sunny sustainable stories ……
