Listening to Myself

On Tuesday, I did more InDesign work for the digital inclusivity project I talked about in my last blog. I'm doing a booklet for them which will include all of the digital opportunities in Manchester that are aimed at disabled people. It's been a successful project so far. I've enjoyed learning more about booklet layouts (although I’m still struggling with sizing and the placement of everything to make the whole page read well). Ezra has been his helpful self as always. Something nice I've learnt is that the more Ezra helps me with my first page, the less I need him on the next page; I'm gaining great knowledge and confidence in my work thanks to this mentoring.

Here's an example of one of the page I worked on:

This week has been a bit hard for me, I've had really bad anxiety but can't pinpoint the exact cause at the moment. I know it's bad as I've injured my fingers due to biting them to the point of bleeding. Because of this I haven't been able to draw. It's a bad cycle because I draw to ease my anxiety and now that's the reason why I can't draw at the moment. It's made me so much worse. It's not all bad though as I've been open about this to my boyfriend and he's been really supportive with helping ease my anxiety and stopping my nail biting. I've also purchased fidget items to keep my hands occupied when I'm not doing anything so I don't bite my nails.

Today was really nice and different, I got to meet Kat in person from my KC project to do a photoshoot for their website, I spent most of my day with them which was a lot of fun! I sadly didn't get a chance to work on my website like I hoped to but I have the weekend to work on that.

Overall this week has been nice, apart from the finger injury I've taken time to heal and grow as I try to do every day, I've not been shy to ask for help when I need it and I will continue to be like that! Getting help from my peers and community enables me to keep going. I'm grateful to be at a point in my life where I'm comfortable to ask for what I need and I have a safe community to do so.
