I thought it would be interesting for people to see what University of Dundee students do in their day to day lives, so here’s day in my life.
I woke up at 7:50am got ready and left the house. I grabbed a tea and a steak bake on my way to DJCAD because, frankly, I needed a pick-me-up and, I confess, I was too lazy to make oatmeal and we’d run out cereal. When I arrived at DJCAD around 9am I sat at a desk and opened a text book and finished the week’s reading for the lecture later, highlighting the things I thought were most important, and the things I didn’t quite understand.
I’ve been doing life painting for the first two weeks, so I finished my reading and my tea, set up my work station and waited for the model to arrive at 9:30am.
Philosophy lecture at 11am, I brought the book I was reading with me so I could follow exactly what was going on and take accurate notes. The lecture ended at 12pm and I met up with a friend for coffee at lunch.
After grabbing a frappucino from the union my friend and I went to the DJCAD library. I thought it would be a good idea to check mydundee at this point as I hadn’t in the morning. After doing a bit of artist research for inspiration I returned to the studio.
Back at the studio I continued working on the painting and waited for the model to arrive.
At 4pm me and a friend went to an art and philosophy forum where we discussed a book with people from various disciplines and years.
Afterwards we also decided to check out the philosophy film club where they were screening The Killing.
So that was a day in my life, what’s your day like, and what do you get up to at uni?
