So, I’ve finally finished my Art Foundation Course! Not only has this past year been one of the most stressful years yet, it also changed a lot of things.
Let’s take it back to the start, ever since I was about 8 I’ve loved everything to do with fashion. I was obsessed with dressing up, swapping all the clothes on my Bratz dolls and making my halloween costumes. My dad was always very artistic and always taught me new ways to draw, I think that’s why I loved it so much!
By the age of 13 I had my whole life planned out, what GCSE options I was going to take, what college I was going to, what A level courses I wanted to do, I’d even chose a university! Moving to London to study Fashion Design with Marketing in Central St. Martins was my dream!
I finished my GCSE’s, got into the college I wanted to go to and near the end of me completing my A Levels, it was time to apply for university, but now the idea of actually leaving everything behind and going to fend for myself in London scared the shit out of me. I didn’t want to leave home just yet, but I definitely wanted to go to university. So I applied for the art foundation course in the college I was already studying at. It is one of the worst decisions I ever made.
At first, the Art Foundation course sounded perfect. I didn’t want to go to uni just yet but I didn’t want to have a gap year either. So getting an extra qualification in something I loved seemed perfect, but I was wrong. This year changed everything for me, I now hate the thought of doing fashion design in university – i’ve lost interest altogether. I think the thing that put me off the most was the teachers, oh they were horrible. I just didn’t want to go anymore, I didn’t want to be anywhere near them. But I couldn’t waste the year so I just got on with it and got all my work done, got my exhibition up and proved a lot of people wrong. I’m currently waiting for my results (July 13th) and hopefully I pass, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
And so that brings me to where I am now, I’ve finished college and have absolutely no idea what I want to do next. I’d love to be able to do blogging full time as I absolutely love it, but wouldn’t we all?! I’m also going to teach myself Spanish and focusing on improving my digital drawings as I also love doing those! (The one above is of the beautiful Katie).
But, since I have no idea what I want to do next I’m going to focus on working and saving money so that I can travel and hopefully somewhere along the way I’ll figure out what my dream job is!
