PLAN, PLAN, PLAN, ACTION!



I find comfort and serenity in planning. I plan my day the night before, I compose lists to check off throughout the day, week and month. I formulate ideas of how things should go, and devise the plan B for when things don't go to plan. This goes for every aspect of my life, from house chores & grocery shops to academical & social plans, and without it everything feels disorderly and chaotic. 

Truthfully, at times it can feel like I am setting myself up for failure as life never seems to go to plan, but for the most part it works to keep myself motivated, maintain momentum and stay focused on goals.

In just a few weeks I will be starting a new chapter of my life, alike all recent graduates, and I have genuinely no fixed plan. It’s the first time in my life where I have no idea what direction I am supposed to go, or how to go about making new plans; and that scares me.
I obviously have the big ambitions within my life; such as get a wee doggo, grow my hair long and stop dying the crap out of it, and get around to weeding the garden, but I have so many fears about starting a career.


VENT has seen me through the pits of depression, to working in a burrito bar, to starting a career in fashion, teaching and the ups downs of completing a fine art degree. Last year I set goals to blog monthly, and push myself creatively to build a portfolio that I am very proud to look back on. I can’t wait to set university to the side, and begin to use all my new artistic skills to build and drive new projects. As pretty as simple fashion styling blogposts may be, I have definitely so much more to offer when I am not scraping the barrel dry. I do plan to get started on a few collaborations as soon as I recuperate from the late nights and excessive stress, and sharing everything here as I try to find my place.
