WC 10th June
Experience Sush and Narrator Sush are two very different beasts.
I have been reading Homo Deus on and off for the last few weeks, chipping away at it with a chapter here and there.
I am nearing the end and have just read through an outstanding chapter about how you as a person have two types of self. The experience self lives though things at the time and the narrative self reflect and produces a curated memory of the event.
This has made me realise that writing these week notes as I tend to at the end of a week means that largely I will have softened the edges and re written what actually happened before I even try to consciously put words down on a page!
So, from next week I am going to try and update the week note each day as I go along, largely like a diary in the hope it will give me a slightly more authentic view on what I have been doing.
How was this week?
Generally pretty good! I have been doing some fun logo/branding design for Art Rooms Kings Heath which I really hope gets chosen as it would be awesome to see something I have done on an actual High Street. Fitting this work in around billable jobs has been a challenge but ultimately it will be worth it.
Finished the week working at Sixth Story which is the first time I have had a standard working Friday in quite a while. It was fine though and the chance to have an after work beer with Joel (Designer at 6S) at The Wolf was worth it in itself.
