My Third Year Audio Project


Hi everyone. For todays blog post, I want to share with you my third year audio project. I actually did this project for the Wellbeing Centre at the University of Lincoln. I created these three pieces of audio to help raise awareness for anxiety, OCD and autism. You can check out my post here, where I talk about having anxiety and OCD. I decided that for my last audio project, I wanted to work alone and to create something that is personal to me and to create something that I want to create.

As I am an Audio Production student, I have a huge love for sound and I love being to create radio documentaries, dramas and podcasts. I also really love recording and editing. Anxiety and OCD is something I really struggle to talk about. I wanted to create something where I can share my own personal experiences, but do it through a way that allows me to do it creatively. I felt that in the anxiety and OCD audio pieces I was able to do this. For the piece on autism, I used audio that I recorded along with with two other media students, to create a short piece of audio to help raise awareness for autism, using Callum's interview and also two poems that I also recorded of Callum performing them.

Under each of the audio pieces below, I have included a brief description of each one along with the music info used.



'I Have Anxiety' shares my personal experiences of having anxiety. I struggle to talk about having anxiety and OCD, which is why I have created this audio piece along with 'I Have OCD.' I don't want to feel scared because at the end of the day, even though I don't want it to be and I wish it wasn't, OCD and anxiety is part of me. And so I want to continue to help raise awareness for mental health. Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean that it is not actually there.

Printiki Photo Printing Service | Review


Hi everyone! It's been a little while since I've done a blog post, but I'm back today with a brand new one. I hope you are having a lovely week so far. 

One thing that I really miss is taking photos and then going to get the film developed and having the photos in physical form. Now I just take photos on either my phone or my camera and upload them straight to my laptop, or I forget about them and like with photos on my old phone, I never see them again. I used to love buying a new photo album and sorting through my photos and putting the best ones into an album. In todays post, I am really excited to share with you, Printiki's photo printing service.

What I've Been Up to | Sunday Thoughts


Hi everyone! I hope you are having a lovely weekend. I can't believe how warm it is outside today, it's so nice out. My mum and I went for a ride out today, we took some lunch with us and then sat next to the river while we ate. I love going out and exploring. Sometimes the most beautiful places are right next to you. On the way to where we went, we drove along the river and passed fields of horses, cows and sheep. It was so relaxing and even better with the warm weather. I'm so excited to share with you another Sunday Thoughts post. For todays Sunday Thoughts, I thought that I would share with you what I have been up to lately. 

My boyfriend Chris had the week off work so it was really nice to spend some time together. On Friday we decided to go out to the zoo. We went to Twycross zoo. It's been so long since I've been to that zoo. I loved going when I was little. I had a great time looking at all of the animals, especially the Gorillas! One of my other favourite bits was feeding the birds. You go into this building where there are beautiful birds flying about and you can buy a little pot of nectar to give them. As soon as I walked through the door they come flying down to get the nectar. At one point I had one on my shoulder and two on my arm.
