I can’t actually contain how excited I am about starting this evening course in October. I want to gain as many skills and such that I can before leaving uni, I’m going into my second year but still unsure of what awaits me after graduation. Is it food or photography I want to continue? Do I want to work with magazines in the Photography area, reviews of shows and artists like my theory tutor does or carry on as an artist?
It wasn’t so much the ‘creative’ side of this course I was so interested in. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to go into writing fiction, I have no idea what sort of genre I would pick, there are so many amazing areas of novel writing! However I really wanted to gain more English writing skills, develop my vocabulary, my descriptions, developments and evaluations.
Knowing I will continue English in some way builds a sort of happiness and excitement within me. I took English Literature and Language for A Level but ended up with a C due to lower marks on my course work. I wasn’t far off of a B which was quite annoying but I’m one of those people who, if I put the work in, I’ll get the marks.
There are people out there who can do near to no work and still end up with a high mark in their work. I’m one of those people who, if I put the work in, I’ll get a high grade or mark and if I don’t put the work in, I’ll receive a lower mark. How it really should be! If I had put more work into my English A Level I would have done better, I focused more on my arts studying, I got an A in Photography and an A* in Art.
I want to work so hard in this course, as well as having a fresh, clean slate coming back to my degree with a better attitude towards projects I’m not as excited as and favouring other ones. Again, a good example of my work effort was my last few projects. I didn’t put enough effort into one project and earned a mark of52 or something like that but I put a greater amount of effort into my essay and received a mark of 82, a first.
I am so excited for this and it’s over 2 months away.
