Leaving F.I.T. this Saturday was really sad. Each of us stood in front of our class and presented the project we spent weeks creating. When everyone was finished, we had a short lesson on Marie Antoinette which I really loved. But it had to be the last 15 minutes of class that was my favorite time in the program. We all talked about what we liked about the class and the different things that our professor can do with her next class. I have to say Professor Maureen Crilly is one of the best teachers I have ever had! She was so helpful and you can’t help but to love her personality. She is so passionate about her work and has an amazing career. She also has this way with words where she can make anything she says sound so interesting and fun. I think she’s a person that everyone in my class can look up to because of her success.
Gathering around to take pictures with the girls was bitter sweet. Having class with them was so much fun, we didn’t get to talk much but when we did it was always interesting and we always laughed. I hope you all had a great experience and I’ll miss spending my Saturdays with you!
Unfortunately, this was my first and last Precollege class. I want the Spring to be all about senior year, having fun and enjoying my last few months of high school. Now that I’m finished with the course and college applications, it’s time to have a little fun before college. I was accepted into Berkeley and Bridgeport for interior design… but I’m still working on my FIT and Pratt portfolios so I have no clue what college I am going to yet. Going into this program, I was unsure if I wanted to pursue interior design but after taking the class and getting a little experience, I was sure. I can’t explain why I love picking fabrics, furniture and paints so much, it’s just my thing.
I’ll miss the horrible drive into the city, seeing crazy people in Starbucks, writing my blog fashionably late :X and staying up all night wrapping fabrics… It was awesome :)
I wish everyone the best of luck. Remember, do what you love and success will follow.
