I am a fine art student currently on my 2nd year. I am currently creating an installation piece focused on my concept: the everyday, the ordinary and the mundane. I want to make this a world wide piece! To make this happen I need a photograph of your hot beverage to attempt to demonstrate that a persons sense of the “Everyday” is different.
Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o fri;
Ei gwrol ryfelwyr, gwladgarwyr tra mâd,
Tros ryddid gollasant eu gwaed.
Chorus: Gwlad, Gwlad, pleidiol wyf i’m gwlad,Tra môr yn fur i’r bur hoff bau,
O bydded i’r heniaith barhau.
Hen Gymru fynyddig, paradwys y bardd;
Pob dyffryn, pob clogwyn, i’m golwg sydd hardd
Trwy deimlad gwladgarol, mor swynol yw si
Ei nentydd, afonydd, i fi.
Os treisiodd y gelyn fy ngwlad dan ei droed,Mae hen iaith y Cymry mor fyw ag erioed,
Ni luddiwyd yr awen gan erchyll law brad,
Na thelyn berseiniol fy ngwlad.
English Translation – Land of My Fathers
This land of my fathers is dear to me
Land of poets and singers, and people of stature
Her brave warriors, fine patriots
Shed their blood for freedom
Land! Land! I am true to my land!
As long as the sea serves as a wall for this pure, dear land
May the language endure for ever.
Old land of the mountains, paradise of the poets,
Every valley, every cliff a beauty guards;
Through love of my country, enchanting voices will be
Her streams and rivers to me.
Though the enemy have trampled my country underfoot,
The old language of the Welsh knows no retreat,
The spirit is not hindered by the treacherous hand
Nor silenced the sweet harp of my land.
It was St David’s day yesterday (1st March) which as every Welsh person knows is national Welsh day, hence the national anthem.

1. I will take advantage of feedback from others, but above all I will trust my own judgement.
2. I will set aside time each day to make art or think about art. The amount of time is not important.
3. I will set concrete goals for myself, and then take the steps to reach them, even though it will be difficult and scary.
