So I’m about to graduate from art college. I hope that ‘little me’ would be proud that I took that very first essay entitled ‘What I Want to be When I Grow Up' (my answer: option 1. an Artist or 2. a Mermaid) seriously enough to to carry out her dream thus far.
It’s been tougher than I thought, and it’s only going to get scarier as my responsibilities and expectations continue to grow, but for now the patient, persistant and sometimes even relentless dedication to my labour of love feels like an achievement.
(And plus, I’ll always have ‘Mermaid’ to fall back on, right?!) x
