July = Something

A new tattoo shared by me and my best buds (photo from Jake)

Cherish the important people in your life because they are not too easy to come across. 

Always surround yourself with people who bring out the best in you.

Keep the negativity out and stay passionate about what you believe in.

My first year of university has certainly been one massive eye opener and real life changer. I've gained so much confidence; if you compared seventeen year old me against present me you would not think it was the same person. I've learned that even if I've grown up it doesn't mean everyone else has, nor does it mean that they are on the same page as me. People have really different views on things and sometimes it's scary. I know what it feels like to be really alone but thankfully I know what it feels like to be full of love too. I am so independent and free, I can visit art galleries and shops and museums whenever I want because they're right on my doorstep. 

For the future: Try and get involved in as many exhibitions and competitions as possible because you will be thankful for it later on. DON'T FRET. Never stop creating. Smile a lot. Watch more films, take lots of pictures and look at toooooo much art. Experiment more with screen printing and don't worry about money- the weekend job isn't that much fun but it pays!

I feel so lucky with how my first year has gone. My flatmates are lovely and my course is perfect for me and when I come home I still have my best buds waiting for me. (I'm very happy.) This month brings a really cool exhibition I can't wait to be a part of and a festival I also can't wait to experience among many other little things going on in my life.

I'm so excited I could burst- have a lovely July every one!

  3. Yay! Happy posts like this are so fun to read. It's amazing to grow and be able to see that change happen. Love that tattoo by the way!

  4. Lovely tattoo!
    And yes to pushing yourself with exhibitions and networking and the bits that seem so damned difficult at times, because ti does all pay off and that's the brilliant part.
    You can't look at too much art, I think it's impossible ;)
