🔮 Reflection of my Week
Hey y'all! It’s been a little while 😅 but I’m back with some juicy insights. I’ve been taking a bit of a break now and then to disconnect from social media, have a little staycation and really plan in some time for myself.
I’ll be moving to university next week so there is a lot of preparation going on at the moment which involves designing templates, ticking off things on my shopping list and getting my head around the modules for the year ahead.
I honestly love being in this in-between reset mode where there is no strict routine and every day feels like a holiday (I can’t even keep track of what day it is). But looking back at the past year, I’ve learnt so much working in practice that I’m absolutely eager to get stuck into designing something.
In fact, I wrote a little post about finishing up my time as a Part 1 Architectural Assistant over on LinkedIn - connect with me!
✍🏻 This Week's Blog Post
Your Future Self: Core Habits
I really enjoyed writing this week’s blog post as it feels like unravelling a new side to :scale. I would like to lean more into personal development and productivity specifically for architecture students and to be honest, it all starts with habits.
This blog post has a number of links, media and content I think you’ll enjoy to learn more about how to plan ahead for your Future Self 🔮
🤗 Something I Created This Week
This week I took the leap and did something I would never have expected. I created a free AutoCAD template which has a super minimal titleblock, made for students to use in their design work.
Creating templates is all part of staying 1 step ahead in order to succeed in architecture school and not do panicky work at the last minute.

💡 Designing Digital Events
I’m very excited (and nervous) to be sharing with you a project that has been in the works for most of this year and I’m so honoured to be partnering with Archity and sponsored by The Office Group who are giving me the opportunity to speak at my first ever physical event!
More details below 😊
😄 Get involved!
Next week I want to write about a topic that you suggest. It can be a burning question you’ve had, something you’re struggling with or some advice you need.
I really want to get some community interaction going so don’t feel shy to hit reply and let me know.
Have an awesome weekend.
Sana 😊
