The adventure begins….

I’m officially a student - I started university today for my fine art degree. I never thought I’d get here. School was a write off for me…my emotionally unstable teen years meant I spent most of school being expelled or skipping class. I had no confidence in my abilities and no motivation to achieve.

Art has always been my passion, the one thing I could do, that I enjoyed doing and could excel at. The thought of having a career in art is a dream come true, but I still never imagined that I would get to university.

I feel so proud, still in disbelief that I actually got in…me…at university. No matter what happens I’m still proud of myself that I got this far, and for the first time in my life I think my parents would be proud

you should be very proud, college can be so fun and you worked hard to get there😺
[@933084,poisonouscupcake] thank you so much, that’s what I’m thinking…I got here now I just want to enjoy everything it has to offer

[@1203119,SophieSmiles] everyone learns differently but trust me when i say that once you figure out what’s best for you and your style you’ll always be able to get through the toughest of challenges🤗🤗💓
[@933084,poisonouscupcake] I’ll remember that 🥰

Just reading this lets me know your parents had more than one opportunity to be proud of you. I'm proud of you, too.

Go get 'em, tiger!
[@663519,Mamapolo2016] that means so much to me, thank you 🥰

I think you will crush it too. I went back to college when I was 30 because I underachieved in high school and was kinda lost in my early 20s. I really did well because I wanted to learn at that point.
[@339269,JimboSaturn] I hope so…just hope I’ve got the brains to do it too
JimboSaturn · 51-55, M
[@1203119,SophieSmiles] I'm sure you do. Just concentrate on school, get your shit done, don't procrastinate and you will do OK.
Congratulations and best of luck. Hope uni is a wonderful experience.

I am suture your parents would be proud of you 🤗
[@406205,InOtterWords] thank you so much, I really hope they are 🥰

mrlopez · 26-30, M
[@1203119,SophieSmiles] no problem! as a high school fuck up to another, high school years don't define you.
GovanDUNNY · 36-40, M
Your parents would always have been proud of you, and what a credit to them you are.

Oh fine arts 😎 that's super cool! I like how you call it University unlike those weird Americans who are always calling it school 🤭
You made it this far! I'm really happy for you buddy! 🤗
[@10788,PiecingMeBackTogether] lol Americans confuse me with their different words. Thank you, I’m super excited about it 😊
[@1203119,SophieSmiles] Yup they destroyed English 😁
Good luck 😍
GovanDUNNY · 36-40, M

Mugin16 · 41-45, M
Well done! Enjoy your degree.
[@393432,Mugin16] Australia, France and Italy I think
Mugin16 · 41-45, M
[@1203119,SophieSmiles] For Fine Arts, France and Italy sound like the better choices. Maybe you can study French or Italian besides your degree?
[@393432,Mugin16] haha no way…I have zero skills when it comes to learning a language…think I’ll just stick with the art

I looked up Geordie and found this. Interestingly, the Geordie speaking in the video announces her name is Sophie!

[@663519,Mamapolo2016] haha it’s not me but it is a common name here
