Cheers to new beginnings!
The beginning of a year can be very hard. Especially when starting a new job, study or moving to a new city or even country. It means making new friends, finding a new way of working or even getting to know the neighbourhood and finding your new favourite bar. For us, the publications committee, it was a new beginning too. New people to work with, a busy master schedule and publication deadlines to meet didn’t make things easy. But here we are; Sarah, Frank, Carlota, Noah and me (Valerie). We are going to provide you this year with juicy blog posts, blooming podcasts, a lively yearbook and last but not least shining social media output!
This year we took a different approach to the publications committee and decided we wanted to have a theme as a thread throughout our year. It is something that has never been done before, which makes it an experiment for us. An experiment that hopefully engages you to the publications committee a bit more.
For this year’s theme we chose colours. Why colors, you might ask? Colours can be linked to different emotions, objects, companies and even personalities. For every quarter in the academic year of the TU Delft we chose a colour. We picked 4 colours that we thought were most resilient and we could link a lot of subjects to. The four colors we picked are yellow, red, green and blue. Three primary colors and one secondary color. It is almost like the four seasons. Yellow for the summer and sun, red for the fall leaves, green for spring and blue for snow and winter. What the exact order of the colors will be is still a secret, but you will find out along the way.
This year the articles are not going to be what they used to be. I am going in a different direction this year. No stuffy 2000 word long essays, but short and opinionated blog posts. As different or opposing opinions ignite interesting conversations and we need conversations to question previous assumptions to evolve. I think creating an opinion is one of the most important things to learn in life, so here is an interesting, paradoxical statement I would like to introduce to you: Yellow isn’t a happy colour. Do some research and let me know what your opinion is.
Cheers to new opinions!
