A Journey | university

Lately i've been distant from blogging and the internet in general, life has been so consumed with everything university, so i thought i'd share a few of my thoughts on the matter. Applying, preparing a portfolio, then the actual interviews which concluded on Wednesday 25th this month. I now feel as though a weight has left my shoulders after receiving all my offers and roughly knowing which i want to study at. But really thats not where the journey ends, is it? not even once you get there or even finish your studies it wont be over, you'll still be on the journey for many more years to come. There's no true ending to a journey through education as it will always stay with you in some way. If you'd have told me two years ago i'd be going to university this September i'd laugh, originally i never planned on going to university i didn't want to "go for the experience" why spend thousands of pounds for an experience? but not to study something you enjoy. However after looking into it more and thinking what i actually want to do in the future within the photography industry i realised maybe it's not the worst thing, going to university and going to open days really opens your eyes with how it can expand your knowledge in the subject and also help you discover your style. Never did i want to give into the pressures of HAVING to go, all around people say that you need to get a degree to then persue and get the job you want, that should hardly be true but the experiences that university can give you can be incredible! Don't listen to what others say but explore the possibilities of what you can do after college/sixth form then choose whats right for you, that's all that truly matters.

Thanks for popping by
