It’s getting to that time of year where if you’re around my age people will be heading back to Uni or just starting. As much as I would have loved to have gone to uni I just knew it wouldn’t have been right for me. I looked around a few and already felt my anxiety kick in.. I would have dropped out!!
During my main education years I was never academic, don’t get me wrong I tried, I tried so hard but I could never get the top grades that I was aiming for and was pushed for.. it was even a question as to whether I would have gone to sixth form college, I did. I began looking at the right A-Levels for me, I’m a very creative girl so I was looking at the arts then came across “National Diploma in Art and Design” that was the course right for me… at least j thought it was! Through college again I tried my hardest but it never seemed to pay off cause the aspect of art I was eager to show off I wasn’t allowed to, I would be at college 9-4:10 most days balancing my work life, social life and college life at one pace. I cannot even begin to tell you how many meetings I had where I sat there shaking due to the pressure I put on myself to do well. It was only due to my group of friends that I diddnt drop out of college.
Second year of college, everyone was beginning to apply for university’s and I visited a few such as Bournemouth, I knew I wanted to study makeup and this is very limited at university’s these days. By the time I was looking I was already working within the Estee Lauder Brand upon a makeup counter, providing me with extra knowledge. All the university’s I looked at were mainly focussing on special effects, that wasn’t what I was wanting to do. It knocked me back abit, what was I going to do?? I looked up makeup courses and came across “The London school of makeup” this school teaches makeup to all levels of students and I knew it was right for me. I applied for the “Fast track makeup Artist course” where I shall be receiving my International makeup certificate. I have only just begun the course and by November will be qualified… how exciting. I finally feel contempt within myself and more confident with my life and how it’s panning out. I always thought to be successful you have to go to uni… that’s not the case!
Yes I have seen all my friends post videos of freshers week and them partying, of course it looks fun but it’s not going to be like that forever, I can go up and see my friends and go out with them so it’s the best of both worlds isn’t it. My friends and my boyfriend aren’t going to be able to get rid of me that easy!!
Anyway today Monday 18th September is the day I start my course and I will do weekend updates for you guys to show you my progress, so stay tuned!!
