PechaKucha

“PechaKucha presentation is a format that uses 20 slides or images that are displayed for 20 seconds each. The slides will move automatically as the presenter is speaking. This format ensures that the speaker is concise, keeps the presentation moving, and gets through all of their content.”

20 slides. 20 seconds of commentary per slide. That’s it.

But that wasn’t it!

I have presented my works before to fellow artists in art camps and to schools and colleges where I’m occasionally called for workshops. A slide presentation that introduces your practice and interests to your course teachers and students.

But this! This was definitely different.

This made me nervous.

This was my first assignment for Uni!

Two days of looking at and hearing about everyone’s works wasn’t a test but a way to familiarise us to each other. Suddenly there was so much to discuss in the next tutorial. Learning from each other.



That was my big day. And after every big day comes big night ;) The pub night with classmates!

Nearly three weeks of being in Bournemouth, I hadn’t been out in the evening even once. I have mentioned before how I love my own company and going out in the evenings is just a chore for me. But this was my chance of breaking the “age” ice and being friendly with my course mates. So the WhatsApp group chat had a pub plan for the night.. and I said a yes!

God knows how many times I made excuses not to go out that evening. “Too cold” “too old” “too loud”, “too late”…but I pushed myself and after a long list of Dos and Don’t’s, tips on the pubbing protocols etc from the niece and daughter, I went!!

I was nervous and bloody conscious partying with 23 year olds but to my relief and delight, I had one of the best night ever!

It was rather amusing at first to be partying late with students as old as Vedant and Devina, but I must say these Gen Z definitely know how to have fun and not judge. Chillers them. I was actually invited to go out for the weekend again with them! Yayy (didn’t be a mom).

With this “acceptance” by the Gen Z i can now empathise with the weekend blasting music at the Campus Halls and can finally abort all those thoughts of playing loud SRK songs on a Sunday morning to avenge my sleepless nights! (As for now)

All is good in the dorm for now.. until the weekend!
