When it finally clicks

The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. – Steve Jobs

So as of September this year I will have officially finished my education, leaving me with a BA in Graphic Design and (hopefully) a MA in Fine Art. With the iminent end of my degree looming I’ve been panicking as to what to do with my degrees and what career I wanted. After a lot of worrying, tears, stress and fear I came across the quote above and it really resonated with me. I started listing things that I love to do:

  • Writing
  • Reading
  • Photography
  • Painting and sketching

For writing I am lucky that I have this blog, it gives me the perfect opportunity to let the literary muses flow; my other creative outlets are overtaken with uni work at the moment and I find myself not wanting to paint or sketch at home very often. But one thing I do find  myself doing quite often is photography. I love it. I’ve always believed in the importance of documenting everyday, memories are so important and photos are a perfect way to capture a moment.

AND THEN IT CLICKED

If I adore taking pictures, why had I not ever considered it as a career? With a few months left of university and time not being on my side, it’s time to start writing up a plan of action and that’s what I tend to do from here on out. As well as focusing my degree and speciality more so that I can be the best photographer that I can be.

My life in Books tag

So I am a self confessed Bibliophile, I get great pleasure from collecting and reading many books and have read upto 12 books in one day just because. So when I came across this tag I knew it was fate, so here is ‘My life in books‘ tag.

Pick a book set in your city or country

I wouldn’t be a true Brit or HP fan if I didn’t pick Harry Potter for this 😛

 

Pick a book that represents a destination you’d love to travel to one day

Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children Trilogy – there is so many locations visited and discussed in the books that I would love to visit them all (especially the Loops).

 

Pick a book in your favourite colour

My favourite colour is green and although I’m not a fan of the UK release cover of this book it’s still green.

Which book/book series do you have the fondest memories of?

This one is super simple and it’s Harry Potter, the whole series greatly affected me growing up and has made me the crazy coffee drinking, cat cuddling, Harry Potter obsessed Kitty I am today.

 

Which book did you have the most difficulty reading?

Don’t get me wrong I love this book now. But the first time I attempted to read this book in my teens I struggled, mainly because of the language Nadsat which is a Russian influenced English that the teens speak in the book. It made the book even more interesting and I love reading it now but back then damn.

 

Which book in your TBR pile will give you the biggest accomplishment when you finish it?

I’m currently collecting the whole Anne Rice The Vampire Chronicles, so once I have them all and have finished reading them that will give me great pleasure and a sense of accomplishment; especially since two of the set I’ve managed to get are first editions.

So my question for you is ‘What book did you read in your childhood that shaped your adult life?’
