So, I officially finished college last week and I’ve got my English Lit exam to do and some Art Portfolio stuff to tie up. So it’s not too bad. I ‘ll be finished in………let’s see……24 days time!
The best news EVER is that I got my Conditional offers of a place on Foundation from Manchester College of Art and Kingston College of Art. I didn’t get accepted on the Foundation at St Martin’s (where Lee is) but I don’t really mind cos a) Kingston is still in London, b) Kingston has got a really good module for prop and set design which is what I want to do and c) IT’S LONDONIUM!!!
Yeh so the whole process was a TAD stressfilled. I didn’t write about it at the time because I thought I would go fucking nuts. It was back in February when I had to make up a digital portfolio to send off to all three colleges. I could have gone for an actual interview at all of them (and drag my bulging A1 portfolio around the Big Smoke like a dick) but to be honest I was so bogged down with college work that going all the way to London would have killed me. TWICE. So Dad arranged for me to send my stuff on CD, which worked out ok, I think. Except for the dudes at Central St Martins haha! They said I didn’t demonstrate a wide enough scope of expertise. Well, fuck me, CSM, but it’s a friggin FOUNDATION COURSE I’m applying for, TO GET THE SCOPE of expertise, to be able to then choose what I study for Degree. Pfffffllooooooooky! Lee told me that they are VERY picky and rip everyone at interview. He did his foundation at Manchester and he said he didn’t think he’d got in on Degree at St Marts cos the interview was rocked up. But he did. Cos he’s fucking ace. He’ll be in his 3rd and final year when I go in September! But then he’s got to do another year for his Art Therapy qual, so he’ll still be around. Oh my God, it’s gonna be so coooooooooooooooool.
Yeh, so for Kingston I only need to pass my Art A Level, which I really don’t think will be a problem. My 10 hour study went really well and I just have to work on my art history resources, my observational work and my research notes for it. I might tell you guys what I did for it one day, but right now……..zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz so bored with it!
Right, now for the shitter.
Lee isn’t back from London yet.
Quelle fucking Suprise!
His final assessments went well but he’s got to do 100 hours of real Counselling if he’s to qualify as a Counsellor and then go on to the Art Therapy bit. It all seems well complicated to me! But anyhoo he has to complete two of the time allocations agreed between him and the Clients before he can break for Summer and come back here. That’s also after he’s visited his ass-clown Dad in Leeds. Could be weeks yet. Joel has already been here visiting Lisa. I’m not sure what’s going down with those two cos they didn’t seem happy when they came round at the weekend. Hmmm.
But at least, come September, I will be GOING TO LONDON WITH LEE! I really hope that I can stay with him in his house, but the problem is the guys (Annabitch, Chloe, Joel and Simon) are still planning to live there, so there won’t be a spare room. Yes, I know, dear readers, I could stay in Lee’s room, BUT my parents want to go down and take a look at the house. So, if there is no spare room? Fucked. The only solution at this point is for them to clear out the box room, which is the size of a box, literally a fucking shoe box, and get a second hand bed from somewhere and make it in to the smallest room in the history of small rooms, and make out that I will take that. I can’t see M&D believing that, not when I’m currently used to this…….this whole stretch of the top of the house as my room. Oh shit. I really don’t want to live in some student house with filthy, noisy, grebby idiots I don’t even know! I know I hate Annabitch but it’s a small price to pay to get to be with Lee every fucking day. Plus, she’ll have to back the hell off from him once I move in!
More later. I’ve got to go and start cooking something. I am STARVING.
