so! i've been at art college for about a month and so far i am loving it! it was really strange at first because i didn't know anyone and i didn't think i'd be up to the standard creatively or whatever, but everyone has been so nice and making friends was really easy and i think once we all settled in and figured our way around the building it's just started to be amazing. they've been having us doing loads of weird things (i mean, drawing the floor? really?) and lots of it is kind of boring and tedious (90 minute lecture on the history of art education a while ago, yaaawn) but i'm actually really proud of all the work that's come out of these bizarre tasks.
it's very full on though, i should say that. i do 9am-4pm every weekday and then when i get home i mostly do coursework until i go to bed. i haven't had time for doing stuff like reading, watching tv, etc. up until a few weeks ago i was also doing 16-hour weekends at m&s, but my contract ended on that so at least now i get weekends to catch up on work and do things that i enjoy haha! (like applying for christmas jobs, wooo! not.)
my stage 1 assessment appointment was at 11.20 today and i passed! woooooo! as of monday i will officially be a textiles, fashion, and design for performance student!
i think that's all i need to say to catch you guys up. there's also a trip to london in november which i'm really excited for, ahhh! art school is so exciting haha! it's kind of crazy but i genuinely just love it. if you're debating whether or not to do a foundation diploma just do it! it's a lot of work but so far it's turning out to be one of the most fun years of my life! x
