I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about my exhibition in June yet! It was such a big part of my life and I spent soooo many months organising it.
The exhibition was such a success, and our private view was really popular. We had nibbles and drinks, and cake! We had a photo booth with props and we had some really great work to showcase. It was a great event and I have to say the best part of it was overhearing someone saying that my work was flawless!
People looking at my work!
As you could probably tell I am so proud of my own work and the others in my group. Looking back on this has only lifted my spirits and made me think, ‘I did that and I did a great job.’ Many thanks to Bex, Lou and Jenni the other producers for the exhibition.
It’s been a looooooooooooooong year for me and I feel like it is neverending. I feel like I have grown so much this year as a photographer and a person, it has brought me close to friends I never thought I would make, and completely torn apart from others.
I have barely slept since my last hand in because I have been sorting out bills and other grown up stuff which is boring and frustrating. Luckily I won’t have to worry about that next year because I am (dare I say it) commuting. This may come as a shock to some of you as I live a couple of house away by car from uni and I have to use the Dartford crossing, however it was not an easy decision to make.
One day I woke up and realised I was never going to find a house for third year, with a lot falling through and people not being able to comprimise over small things such as how many bathrooms there was. As I found out, someone who is going to be selfish and petty is never worth you time and you shouldn’t rise to it. Finding a house for uni isn’t as easy as it seems, but contrary to what I have said it can be achievable. It’s a shame in a way because I love living by the beach and I have made a couple of really solid friends who I will miss, but they are on my course so I will see them every time I visit. I have also made plans to stay a night at one of my friends to avoid getting up REALLY early for lectures which is always a bonus!
One thing I have learned from Uni is to never give in to the people that want to break you apart the most, never give in to lies, workload, bad grades or what other people say to you. And if you do give in, suck it up and go to KFC. (no I am not product placing KFC).
Here’s to hoping the next year will be full of stronger people, stronger friendships, sunny days, laughter, and more takeaways.
I mentioned a while back about my book that I have made, and when it arrived I had to prepare it for my hand in. But now I can show you it in it’s full glory, and you can buy it from here! http://www.blurb.co.uk/b/4201946-the-ultimate-summer-festival-look-book
