University Decisions.

DSC_7051Choosing the right university can feel like a massive job and a lot of thought and┬áresearch goes into it – it’s such a huge decision.

I’m right in the middle of the process and I’m – like many other AS level students out there – feeling very overwhelmed. I’ve got all these ideas rushing through my head of all the dream jobs and careers I’d love to head in the nearby future but then you’ve got to step back and get back to reality. What is actually possible? What am I capable of? How much do I really want this?

The dream job for me would be to be a fashion journalist, critique, designer and magazine editor. However I’m sure as you read that you rolled your eyes and thought I’m completely contradicting myself and well… I am. I still don’t know what I want and time’s slipping through my fingers rapidly. I’d love to be part of the fashion industry but what specialist sector is what I’ll decide later. I think that’s the best way to start, what idustry to you want to go in? Then think: what makes you happy? What do you want out of your career?

I personally find that money is a huge motivator for me as I grew up struggling and I’m not prepared to live my whole life like it. There’s so much I want to do and have throughout my life and nothing comes free nor very cheap. I’m good at writing, photography, being creative and I’m opinionated so I think I’d fit nicely into the fashion industry but it’s mega competetive. Am I ready for that?

I’m very determined and when I set a target I’ll try my upmost best to get there but then I think… is that good enough? So as you can see, I’m forever doubting myself and so then it springs to mind that I just throw myself at a fashion related course and make diversions from there.

I’ve found a fashion journalism and marketing course but it’s at a university I don’t feel is very highly accredited. Another university is simply fashion journalism but writing about everything can lead me into all different sorts of sectors and gives me a chance to try new things and write about them which, to begin with, sounds like a great start to me.

For now though, I need to stop worrying about the future and concentrate on the present. I won’t get anywhere if I fall at the first hurdle.




IMG_0113So far, I’ve been trying to navigate myself around this website/blog for over two hours and I still have absolutely no idea what I’m doing. Really think there should be more tutorial videos? Even youtube is confusing me?

The whole reason why I have been meaning to create a bog is because in the not too distant future I really would like to be some sort of journalist – fashion preferably – and I thought the best way to start practising my writing was through some sort of ACTUAL writing and not just thinking about all the great things I could be doing! Nothing great ever comes from just sitting around and doing nothing, action is needed!

Not only do I want to be a fashion journalist, I’m really interested in photography and I currently study it at college. The two link fairly nicely, as does the fact that my greatest dream would be to travel every corner of the globe and experience all types of cultures and learn about the way they are, how they work etc. This explains my interest in sociology I guess..!

It’s obvious my writing techniques need to be more refined and I need to stop rambling on and on but… it all takes time!

Hope that I can work this pretty soon, think it’ll be fun!
