graduating, is it worth it? and the grades i got.


I graduated from university last week, so I wanted speak about how im feeling about the whole degree thing here.
I spoke about how I was feeling a few posts back so if you read that this wont be news to you but I honestly don’t agree with education at a university level no more. I do wish I didn’t go and just spent time figuring out life and what I want to do without it, maybe then id be there quicker. If it wasn’t for the people I met there I honestly would of left early on in the course.


When I first applied to university this was back in 2012, I had no idea what I wanted to do, I didn’t want to go to university but I explored the idea because we had to, it was compulsory to apply and go through ucas, though I didn’t understand anything what was happening! I remember someone writing my personal statement for me, it was rather bad and I don’t think I ended up getting in anywhere but I don’t remember caring!
Then I decided to work for two years, I also think my first job taught me a lot about life and it was a horrible experience, though I definitely think it was the kind of jobs I had, retail and hospitality are just no for me but Im going to speak about my experience in retail in my next post!

Somewhere between the lines I found a drive, something I never had throughout college and school, and it was an interest for something other than figure skating and it was fashion. So I decided I wanted to work in fashion, and that was all I wanted to do so I thought I need a degree in something fashion related to go with my blog. I actually applied for styling and photography fashion courses and ended up starting university doing fashion photography at Falmouth University. About a quarter of a way through the first semester I hated it, it wasn’t for me, I was so into fashion and everything fashion related I couldn’t do it as the course was more photography based, like what I did in college and I didn’t want to do that again. Luckier enough I got to change courses, it felt like a dream because I never ever pictured doing fashion design and making garments. I had never even made anything before. Anyway three years past and I can say that I can make a garment out of nothing and I know how to sew, BUT was all that stress worth it? If you’ve studied design im sure you know what exactly I mean, the stress is unreal. I guess every course is but now im like I could of stayed doing something I knew and not had that crazy stress. But I did want to do that course for a reason and it because I wanted something new and challenging and I definitely, 100% got that. In my whole life I’ve never done well at education, I do not have the attention span for it I think, also don’t have a good memory, so I failed English twice until I got a B. Therefore with my degree I was never expecting a good grade, I pretty much only passed things throughout the years, only did well on maybe two or three essays but yeah so I ended up graduating with a 3rd which is just a pass. I wasn’t happy with it at first, now I don’t care because I landed a sick job without even speaking about my degree.


Definitely think a piece of paper isn’t worth your time, if you’re thinking about it, especially in the arts. There are so many other things you can do to show you’re better than a degree so I’d just go out and do them first then see if you definitely need it because you cant do everything you want when you’re tied down to education.

i have to cover up just because i have a larger chest...


I've been thinking about this rather a lot lately, don’t know if its because a few bloggers I know have the ‘blogger body’ which seems to be – slim or curvy with a minimal bust if you know what I mean yeah. Not every blogger but most top ones, hola if you agree!
Anyway, when you have this perfect body you pretty much can wear anything, especially if you have a smaller chest. 
Basically anything you can't wear a bra with is not made for girls with bigger chests, every time I don’t wear a bra people stare in stock horror and it's just stupid, why is it I have to wear a bra and smaller chested girls don’t? 
Yet there are soooo many pieces of clothing that you just cannot wear a bra with. 
Maybe im just against boobs but boob jobs make no sense to me at all (of course do what you want) but it's difficult, they’re honestly just difficult to live with and I don’t even have the biggest boobs. 
Also, big boobs sag? WHY WOULD YOU WANT THAT. Nope will never understand it, oh well!

 


So the point I was getting at was that I wanna be able to wear anything and not get badly stared at, and that means not wearing a bra I hate bras so bloody much.
I've always felt like I have to cover up cause they’re too big for tops but why?
I still would love them to be a tad bit smaller but for now, im not going to be wearing a bra just because they’re too big for a top or a dress you cannot wear a bra with. #sorrynotsorry. I do what I want anyway, I just wanted to see who else feels this way! So let me know if you do.

Disclaimer: not trying to shame on any girls with smaller boobs or big boobs. You've gotta flaunt your body and thats all this was about.
