Whoopee! Big plans afoot!!!

Yay! I've just been offered a part-time place on the art foundation course at London Met!!!! The BIG PLANS as mentioned in my first post earlier this month. I'm so HAPPY!!!! Yes - I'm taking a HUGE career change from Biochemistry but I'm just so HAPPY!!!!!!!

I went for the interview last Wednesday, having spent the week before frantically putting my portfolio together. When I got there, there were LOADS of people - lots of mature students infact. When I went in they seemed to be genuinely interested in my work and liked it (and ME I hope!). Anyways, I'd applied for the full-time course but considering how last minute this was (the course starts next week!), they admitted that they didn't have many places on the full-time course, and had more on the part-time one (it's still one-year long, we just do a few less projects and have to do more "homework"). So I said I didn't really mind which one it was as long as I could get on. Infact being on the part-time course would mean that I'd have more chance of getting some decent part-time work to fund it all. Then I've spent the last few days waiting for a response from them ... EEEEP!

I spent all of Friday walking round Bricklane visiting lots of London Design Festival exhibitions, and then spent yesterday drawing at Somerset House and both of these really convinced me that I was making the right decision. I don't quite have a full idea of what path I want to go down (have some inclinations towards illustration and communication design), but am hoping the year's foundation will help me figure that out ...

Anyways, EEEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPP!!!! I'm so HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
