My mum has been known to refer to me as a perpetual student because I’m always taking a course of one kind or another. This year, I’ve been a student at my local Recovery College, where I’ve learned an incredible amount about mental health, recovery, wellness, resilience, hope, agency and opportunity. I’ve learned a lot about myself there too. I plan to continue being a student at the college throughout 2018 and have already enrolled in a bunch of Spring courses.
I’ve also learned a tonne of new things about arts, crafts, creativity, planning and mental health from watching YouTube, so I’ll definitely keep watching those videos too. In the summer I went on a couple of mindfulness and meditation retreats as well as a watercolour workshop. I’ll be keeping my eyes open for similar events next year.
One thing I’m really looking forward to in January is the Life Drawing course I’ve signed up for. I really want to master drawing the human figure, so this will be a great place to start!
