Yay, I finally graduated on Monday after studying for two years in Photography and Digital Imaging. Part of me is soooo sad it's all over and part of me still wishes I was learning. However, it's nice to be at home and not up till all hours of the morning putting my workbook together.
I'll never forget my first day of college .......... I was absolutely terrified and after having been handed what seemed like a million briefs I came home, sat at the kitchen table and cried and cried and cried. I said to Graeme (my husband) "I can't do this, I don't understand the briefs blah blah blah". After him having no luck what so ever in calming me down I called Tim (my neighbour) who is a Uni lecturer. Well to this day I can't thank Tim enough for coming up and explaining what seemed like a complicated brief was actually quite a simple brief.
So here I am after two years and probably a couple of years before that (studying or mucking about with a camera on my own) later and now almost finished in setting up my business, the only thing left to complete is my studio conversion which is in the middle of happening and I can't wait!
I made some great friends, one in particular but I know that I will NEVER regret going back to study. I also can't thank my family and friends enough for all the help over the two years and I'm sorry for being unsociable and ignoring you all ;-)
Anyway this post is just to show off my graduation picture and to show you all how proud I am of myself hee hee and to say it's never too late to go back to school.
