So this year, I am a Junior in High School. I don’t know why, but I just realized how fast senior year and then graduation is approaching. For the past few months, I have been looking at some Universities, mainly ones that have fashion programs. My top pick is FIDM – Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. For approximately, a month and a half now, I have been speaking with a lady named, Peggy Quayle, who is the Director of Admissions. She has been helping learn and prepare possible scholarship opportunities and early advantages I could have. Which for me is super exciting. If I keep my grades and GPA up, I could be excepted into the Junior Advantage program, which is where you basically get to experience the FIDM student life before college begins. I am also looking at being president or vice president of the Fashion Club at my school. One because I love it and two because I could get some amazing scholarships. I have also been working very hard on my grades because honestly, at the beginning, my grades weren’t that great. I would have very bad anxiety attacks at school and due to that, I would miss school quite a bit. Now, I am doing better and getting everything on track. In fact, on my recent report card, I had only one C and the rest were A’s & B’s.
To be honest, God is just moving everything into place. I know God has a plan and I trust in Him to execute it. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me.
I still can’t believe that this 2016/2017 school year has come to a close. I feel like it went by fast but also slow at the same time (if that makes any sense). Today June 8, 2017 was our last day of school! I am going to be a Junior next year and I am going to be 17 in October. Man, where has the time gone…… I can’t wait to see what the future holds as my last two years of high school approach.
This week (Monday-Thursday), we had exams. I have been working my butt of to get here today. I am so proud of what I have accomplished.
Now it’s time to enjoy summer!
It seems as if this school year has come to an end very quickly. This year I struggled a bit in the beginning, but I have almost made it through. I have overcome and accomplished so much this year, it is amazing. I am so proud of myself for making it this far! It has been a pretty good year…. I thank all my teachers for working with me. I thank them for coming to school everyday and teaching me new things. I thank them for their patience. I can’t wait to see what next year holds for me. We have less than a month less including exams! I can’t believe it almost over! I am in disbelief that I will be a Junior in high school next school year. I will also be 17 in October. Where has the time gone? It is crazy how time flies….
Although, I am very excited to be going to camp when school ends … I didn’t go last year due having my shoulder replaced. I took that time to heal and rest. This year I am back in action and ready to go to camp.
Lately, I have been really good. I went a week without a fentanyl patch without having any shakes, or nausea/vomiting. I am also learning the limits of my arm. I noticed that if I put pressure on my arm or lean on it for a certain period of time, it starts to hurt. I am becoming used to dealing with my arm and finding its limits. I have been working on knowing my limits and figuring what positions work best for me.
One thing, I am really excited about is the photos I have been taking in photography class. One even got put into an art gallery at school last week. I am so proud of all of them because I worked so hard to photograph and edit them. Here are some examples of some pictures I took and setup:
I am so happy with the photos I have taken. I have at least a hundred more photos I have taken and edited. I love photography class! Even though school ends soon, I would like to buy my own camera and computer so I can photograph and edit more. I am definitely going to stick with photography. An if I am going to be a Fashion Designer, I can take photos of my creations and designs.
Yay!! I made it into the Junior League Competition my high school fashion class is doing. I worked so hard on my entered project. It was a struggle but I made it! Now onto the Fairtale themed portion/runway portion. I am so proud of myself! I worked to hard and it paided off.
Now I am going to go on to the next round which is Fairytale themed. We have to create an outfit that correlates with our fairytale we were given. We get to walk that outfit down the runway and get it judged and see who the final winners are. A lot of the judges really believe in me and one even told me that he thinks that I am going to win. I am beginning to work on my Aladdin themed project. I love Aladdin and you already know I am making an outfit inspired by Jasmine. It is going to be a bit more high fashion though. I can’t to see the final project and walk down the runway in it.
