…When you finally check off the last task on your ‘to do’ list. You finally have time to relax… for about an hour or so; then it’s time to do it all over again.
My schedule is hectic and it does get to be overwhelming at times, but I always remind myself that it’s my choice. I made it that way. I do things most teenagers don’t because I want to be a successful worker in the industry of fashion and, why not get a head start on it?
High School always comes first before college, as much as I wish it didn’t. SAT’s are exactly a week away. This test will determine what college I get into. Nerve wrecking right?! For about the past month, I have tried to get at least thirty minutes to one hour of studying in per-day. But now that the test is only one week away, my studying will amp up to several more hours.
I prioritize myself and keep two agendas in my purse wherever I go (except when I go out at night- which is rare.). I would recommend this to anyone with a busy schedule because it really helps you keep up with your work.
After SAT prep, school work is second on my list of prioritizing. Between homework, projects, and essays, it has to be done!
When I’m finished with high school work, I move on to college work! My FIT class doesn’t require take home assignments but we do need to bring in items to incorporate into the projects. If the professor hands out notes, I re-read them and go over what is expected for the next class. I don’t consider this to be ‘dreaded work’ more as learning fun.
And when that’s done, I work on ‘MiRi Co.’ MiRi Co is a small project a friend and I produced. It forming, creating and shooting fashion photography. The models we use are volunteers from our school. We help the models build up a portfolio as well as ourselves. I style the shoot, come up with the concepts, buy and borrow the needed attire, and basically direct when shooting. My friend, Maggie, is the photographer, but also helps me whenever I need it. I love working on these shoots because it’s my favorite hobby.
When I finally reach some free time, I usually read or go out with friends. Over my spring break I had quite a lot of time on my hands. I read two novels, made several trips to the city, shot 1 photo shoot (they take up a lot of time) and even went out. But now that reality has returned, it’s time to get back on task. But hey, I’m not complaining :)
