So this week has just been full of frustration for me. We had been doing research, research and… wait am I forgetting somethi- oh yeah, research. Ugh I’m good at research but when I feel like I have a grasp on what it is I want to know then I KNOW it’s time to stop. But we trudged along. But finally last Friday we pulled ourselves together and actually started getting some designs together, we have wire frame options now and it’s great! Some are really modern but safe. Others are more out of the ordinary but risky. I’m not sure where its all going but I’m kind of okay with either. But then again I am the copywriter so I need to focus on the words. I don’t think it will be much of a challenge for me though… not to sound cocky or anything. That seriously isn’t what I meant.

We had two great lecturers. Both were great and talked about some pretty good stuff, conversion points and businessy stuff. We also had a TDS (team development session) and we got a lot out of it. First, we were all feeling a bit stage 1 but after going through a few exercises we started opening up a lot more and we understood each others perspective a lot faster, cutting through the bull within maybe 30 mins. Going from stage 1 to 3 in an hour and a half. Its mostly because Hyper teaches us how important it is from the beginning to develop our team skills. I’m a lot more confident with team development now then I have ever been.

Now on to getting some work done. Hopefully this is a calm week. A few of us are hosting a open house for future students looking into the school. And I basically have just tomorrow but that’s okay, I think. I talked through a Q&A last time and I wasn’t prepared to talk AT ALL. But besides that not much planned for this week, but the week after…that’s another story. Le Boyfriend and I are moving into our new place the 1st of April. The 2nd I’m going to Copenhagen with the group to have our final meeting with the client. The 3rd we are presenting to the class. The 4th I was going to go to the super sweetKaospilot x Hyper Island project mash-up, all expense paid to Aarhus and fun over the weekend. But as it turns out, I have to have surgery to get two teeth extracted. Fun times…
