This quote literally describes my life, I have never been a half hearted kind of gal. If I am doing something I’m all in (unless its sports then I’m all out). Even when I was younger my drawings where elaborate and full of representation and to be truthful usually involved a lot of glitter.
I have continued this trait into my work today each piece is filled with as much passion as the last but there is a lot less glitter.
I literally have no idea what I want to do with my life.
Controversial I know, but seriously I went to secondary school convinced I wanted to be an actress and then I did my A-levels and realised I would rather stick a folk in my eye than stand on stage again.
I learnt a lot about myself while doing my A-levels, I found I loved photography and media, my friends from school weren’t really my friends at all (that one stung a little) and that I had spent a lot of my life not truly being me, fitting in with the crowd and sometimes being a total bitch. So I finished my A-levels knowing a whole lot more about myself and a whole less than I thought I knew about life.
Which brings us to now, one year on from my A-levels. I currently work in a school behind a desk, I know its so creative, but the truth is after A-levels I couldn’t bring myself to go to university. Living away from home sounded dreadful, student flats gave me nightmares and I still have no idea what I want to do with my life. But then I realised (while in the bath of all places) that living a safe life isn’t really living. I get up, I work, I go home, I sleep.
So I welcome you to my future.
The future where this quote really does describe me.
