These past few weeks have been a whole lot more stressful than I initially thought it would be. Four deadlines in one week was THE cherry on top. And how I got through them, I have no idea.
Again, blood sweat and tears. Literally.
Sweat- From rushing around from place to place just to print and bind.
Tears- Well, that’s kinda self explanatory isn’t it?
But now? NOW I’M FREEEE!!!! (Although I do have one exam, but I still have 2 weeks for that. And 2 weeks is plenty of time to revise, I hope).
It feels so damn good to be myself again. To do things that I enjoy, and catch up with those I’m closest to. These next couple of days, I will take out to catch up with life, and then back to hard work.
Revision. Revision. Revision.
I can’t wait for summer! It feels so weird how second year of university has already finished. The time is going by so fast, so so fast…..
When I’m next back in Leeds, two thirds of my friends wouldn’t even be here anymore. Most people would have already graduated. It’s so sad to see people going their own separate directions. People are bound to grow apart and move on with their lives. I hope most of us would put in the effort to stay in touch, but a lot of the time, it doesn’t seem to happen. Sad reality of life. I guess it’s all part of growing up. Must make the most of the here and NOW.
Ahh well, time to relax (for now) then get back to the habit of revision before I end up failing this exam.
Sorry for another rant, just a quick update on life. Will try to blog more if I can!
Many opportunities currently being thrown at me. It feels as if my life is ever-changing with new experiences.
So far, I’ve turned down 5+ interviews, merely because I have secured a much valued internship at French Connection for the next academic year (September 2012).
So why am I re-considering my plans now?
I’ve just been offered another interview for Manchester (my hometown) in two weeks time for a company called Society. If it goes well, perhaps I’ll stay for longer than the summer term, and even carry it on through the year (providing I get the placement that is).
Pros and cons.
Both company’s are able to provide me with a strong and stable foundation to be experienced in the world of fashion. I’ll pick up skills that are heavily required for my future career.
However, if I was to move to London, expenses are going to be ridiculously expensive. And I’ll have to work outside of placement hours (if I can), unless I depend on my parents for extra income (which shouldn’t even be an option). I rather pay and live off my own money and make my parents proud.
But, if I stay in Manchester… I guess I won’t really have the whole experience. I’d have less freedom in comparison to moving out. Maybe this will give me the time to reflect on my life and what it is I want to achieve in future. I’d definitely be able to save a lot from living at home, but is it worth it if I can earn it all back in the long run?
Thinking long term, I need to figure out which company(ies) will be the most beneficial to me and help me most. Perhaps I’ll take more than one offer and divide my time into appropriate portions.
Now is the time I start to think more about me, and what I want.
Live my life the best I can rather than focusing on things that shouldn’t even matter, and will not matter in time to come.

I miss drawing like this. So bored of just “technical flat drawings”!
Not sure if I’ve already re-blogged this? But, this is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l!

So, this whole Kony2012 issue is really getting out there isn’t it?
Yesterday, I was so swayed towards helping and stopping Kony. I even signed the e-petition. But now? Now I’ve taken a look at the bigger picture. The donations we make goes towards funding violence and the media. Film-makers and the government get paid. What about the children who are suffering? They get a small percentage. Should that be the case? No.
DO YOUR RESEARCH, GUYS!
