Many people have mixed feelings about college and how they’ll adjust themselves to this environment. Many are scared, many are confident, many, like me, don’t have expectations of the school, but of themselves.
I am part of a community of 8 first year Fashion Design students here in Florence, and I can say that everyone is very unique in how they view fashion and art. I saw some of us struggling in certain classes while others where excelling. Everyone had their weak and strong points in each class. Personally, I like to classify myself as a perfectionist, so when I “fail” at something it can really ruin my mood. However, after some discussion with family and friends, I realized that I shouldn’t be upset that I didn’t do as well as I thought I would. It’s just the beginning of my fashion school career and I can’t bring myself down. No one should be bringing themselves down. We all came here to learn; we’re the new blank canvases of the fashion world.
Anyway, I just wanted to write something comforting for my first post. Tomorrow some of us will be visiting Siena, so I will upload some photos of the trip.
