Hello blogging world!
I have recently been reading blogs by some really interesting people, and thought that it would be a good way of recording my thoughts and also of keeping a record of my progress throughout the course that I have just begun. I plan to post pictures of my work and hopefully get some comments with opinions etc.
But first, a bit of an insight into who I am and where I am in life right now…
I am a student on a BTEC National Diploma Graphic Design course, with high hopes of finishing and going to study Graphic Design at the best University I can get into!
I am 19 (I have the worst birthday EVER – 26th December, Boxing day), and most of my friends (and boyfriend) are already at Uni, but I am still at home doing this course. I finished my A-levels in English Language, History and Product Design last July and decided not to go to University because I didn’t get into where I wanted to go and didn’t want to go somewhere else just for the sake of it.
I really LOVE graphic design, and I quite like French (mainly because I liked it as a subject at school, but also because I think it is beautiful in sound and in writing!) so that is the reasoning behind the blog’s name! I also quite like the following: Photography, Music, Typography, Fashion, and Damask patterns.
I hate when I’m asked what hobbies I have because in all honesty, I don’t have any. I know, I know… I sound a really boring person now but it is true! I don’t belong to any clubs, and other than work part time as a waitress, I spend pretty much all of my time on my college work. I like listening to music, going out to clubs and drinking, dancing, socialising with my friends/new people etc, shopping, surfing the internet – particularly facebook and ebay, eating and sleeping. But I am quite ready to try new things… so who knows?
I did have a blog before but didn’t keep up the habit of writing in it, but hopefully this time it will be different!
O.k. So enough chat… time to get to work! I’ll get posting… and to start with I will upload the work I have been doing since the start of my course, September 2008.
