FIDM selected me (among others) to post my portfolio online. procrastination is continually instilled.
I finally finished. I graduated from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.
Leaving FIDM for the last time as a student was pretty sad. I spent a little over two years of my life attending this school. It’s really hard to forget all the sleepless nights, procrastinated assignments, nervous breakdowns, and horrible presentations. On the other hand, it’s also difficult to forget the lifelong friends and mentors, newfound confidence and determination, valuable skills, and so many other things I gained from attending this school. As it’s an advanced program and accelerated college, I can definitely say I matured at an earlier age. I came in a quiet, really shy girl and have grown up, no longer afraid of public speaking, letting my opinions be heard, or taking on a leadership role.
As stressful as FIDM was, I would never trade it for anything. This program was a very unique experience. It was project based instead of consisting of fully book work and exams. I feel a lot more prepared for the real world than design students from other schools and have an advantage over them with the resources I’ve acquired. Professionalism has come a long way and is probably one of the things I am most grateful for.
It’s a big change graduating from FIDM and I’m nervous for the future. I know what I love to do and I’m sure that will be enough to become successful and remain happy.
Can’t wait to walk in June! (:
Dream college since the sixth grade. I got accepted!
FIDM finals are over, which means I get to spend the rest of my days working in the sewing studios. I can’t say I cared too much for the “newbie” classes, but oh my god, I am productive in these rooms like no other.
My house needs to have open windows like that. I don’t care how easy it would be to snipe me, or how ugly it could be. Maybe I’m part plant. I just need that sunlight.
P.S. Those are Christmas goodies that I hope could be more than just Christmas…
FINALLY finished with my Color and Design Theory hw!
The theme was “A Secret Place.”
“Think of places you go to collect yourself, to gather strength, to create, to think, to dream. What are the characteristics of this place? Would it be indoors or outdoors? Open or enclosed? Intimate or vast?”
I chose to do my favorite places from the Kingdom Hearts series: Dark City (The World That Never Was), Hollow Bastion/Radiant Garden, Traverse Town, Twilight Town, Land of Departure, and Destiny Islands.
I’m so proud of myself for following the rules: NO X-ACTO knife, NO drawing then cutting (or drawing at all), use just the paper provided (a stack of 20 colors and tracing paper), ONLY freehand scissor-cutting or tearing, and use rubber cement.
“One sky, one destiny.” <3
