Yesterday I started on my new journey and I couldn’t be happier.
Yesterday was the first day of college studying subjects that I was truly going to enjoy (and trust me I did!).
The first problem I faced was what to wear. In the end I opted for something quite casual. I wore black jeans and this green blouse that has a zip for detail down the front. I also wore my vans as they were comfy and there is no dress code so I can wear what I like. I kept my makeup simple by just sticking with winged eyeliner and a nude lip (nothing to bold for my first day)
Anyone looking into going to college, here is one bit of useful information:
IT IS NOTHING LIKE SCHOOL.
It is unbelievable how different college is to school. At school I felt that they treated you like a child and I know we are technically still children (as most people in education are under 18) however they do baby you quite a fair bit at school. At college it is a totally different story. You call your lecturers (not teachers!) by their first name and everything is your responsibility. It’s hard to explain how it is, but its so much better than school.
I met all of my lecturers yesterday and they all seem so nice and I am so excited to be studying film studies, media studies, ICT and photography.
In other words I wish I had gone to college sooner!
