Hello, world. First of all let me introduce myself.
I am Katerina Hristova, born in one beautiful Bulgarian city called Varna which is located on the coast of the Black Sea.

However, I was blessed and lucky enough to be given the opportunity to continue my education in Cardiff, which already feels like home, even though I arrived 3 weeks ago.
(photos taken in Cardiff with my phone .. simply because posts with no images are boooring)
So here I am, one excited, enthusiastic and proud undergraduate student of Cardiff School of Art and Design, sitting on a chair in one of Victoria Hall`s rooms, struggling with the white sheet of paper. 🙂
This whole reflective blog project is one of my duties as Graphic Communication student, which aims to track my academic progress.
…and to be honest, initially, I could not like the idea less. It`s uncomfortable. It`s uneasy.
1. I`ve never been confident enough to share most of my personal projects & creations with people ( except my closest friends ) ( which is my biggest weakness )
2. One can easily conclude that my english is far from perfect as I have never lived in England. And my English teacher is no longer here to fix my mistakes. (So I want to apologise in advance. Forgive me for my grammar and spelling mistakes and please let me know if you find any)
3. I don`t like writing. At all.
But listen closely. I`ll tell you a secret.
One little hidden courageous Katerina in me has always wanted to make a blog. So I’m quite thankful it`s compolusary. Such a perfect excuse.
The comfort zone has never contributed to somebody’s growth, so I am happy to step out of it (in many ways). So what I expect to achieve thanks to this blog prevails over all the mentioned cons .
1. Hopefully, I will give up doubting myself ( or at least will take a step to achieve it )
2. I will face my true identity
3. I will improve my written and accordingly my spoken english
4. I will sort and arrange many of the floating thoughts in my confused head
5. All of my friends will be up to date wih my latest course-related work and projects at university
6. Not only my tutors, but also I will be able to track my own progress, and I think this will be even more interesting a year (or two) from now.
I think it’s worth it.
My future self will definitely thank me for that.
