Bonjour blog readers! I’ll be your Precollege Programs blogger for the Summer 2012 semester! I apologize in advance for this novel that you’re about to read, but I assure you that the rest of my posts won’t be nearly as long as this one. With that said, let’s begin! For those who don’t know me, (which is most of you), my name is Brandon and I live in Long Island, New York. For those of you who do know me, my name is still Brandon and I still reside in Long Island, New York.
I’m an incoming Junior in high school with interests in fashion, photography and art. I guess you can say I’m very cliché, artsy kid from New York, but I’ll tell you that I’m quite unique so I dare you to find a cliché, artsy kid from New York like me. This summer I’ll be taking courses at FIT for the first time, and I’m more excited than a 13 year old girl at a One Direction concert!! Words cannot describe how big my expectations are for this summer! I’ll be like Charlie walking into Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, full of excitement and pure desire. The courses I’ll be taking are “HFA 143: Architectural Rendering” and “HAC 063: Careers in Advertising and Marketing Communications.”
Lately, there has been much pressure put on my shoulders about my future, specifically to do with my major in college and the career I choose to follow. As a sixteen year old, it’s way too early for me to choose. So I have decided to take full advantage of the courses at FIT. I’ve always been very interested in pursuing Architecture, due to my savvy in mathematics and huge passion for drawing/sketching, and advertising and marketing has always interested me. By the end of the courses, I hope to know what path I’ll choose to follow. However, if I’m not sure by then, I’ll definitely be taking FIT courses throughout the school semesters.
Here’s some of my sketches:
This year I took a specific fondness in sketching ballerinas, as well as some fashion looks. I am extremely excited about this opportunity to blog, because I’ve always wanted to voice my opinions and thoughts. I’m running out of room in this huge head of mine, so I’m deciding to share my thoughts with all of you! I expect this blog to be a lovechild between Tumblr, LookBook and your typical but not typical fashion blog. I’ll be reflecting my days at FIT, posting my outfit choices when going out with my friends or just going through another day at FIT, and sharing with you my thoughts and opinions on pop culture, current events and summer trends! SO bare with my kiddies and buckle up, because this is going to be a very bumpy ride (in the best ways possible).
p.s. I’m sure most of you are wondering what I look like, so here I am:
Kidding of course.. Here is the real me when the lights and cameras are put away, and my hair/makeup stylist is on break:
