I want to make this blog after everything really went well to my decision. Many were asking for an update so here it is! I divided it into 2 parts.
I'm officially an art student!
EDIT: I SHORTENED MY JOURNAL
*Part 1 : eizu.deviantart.com/journal/32… *
I am now enrolled at the Far Eastern University (FEU) major in Painting. As far as I know, along the University Belt, FEU is the only one that offers Fine Arts. My mom wanted me to try the Philippine Womens University but its too disappointing to know that its too far from where I live.
Decision Making Difficulties!
Well, I really didnt want to continue accountancy atm.
I hoped to get into the College of Fine Arts and Designs (UST), I was confident because I have skills. But slots were really limited considering that they only have ONE section per year level, and they have incoming freshmen.
Conservatory of Music major in voice and minor in piano was my second choice (5yr course). Audition was stressful! Shifters exam took for 4 hours (harder than USTED entrance exam!). And I got the slot. UST is one of the 2 best music schools in the Philippines.. [link]
I sent my application to transfer to FEU as well. I got an excellent FEU entrance exam in 2007 which they acknowledged but I still took the aptitude test (Four pages which compose of drawing & essay) for fine arts.
I researched more on music for the whole week before June 14 and classes will start June 15. And I learned that I have to take care of myself 5 times more than the usual. Coz the quality of my voice will depend on how healthy I am. There are so many restrictions. Do you know that taking dairy milk before singing affects the voice? LOL! Thats just one of the pre-cautions.
I heard that many students werent able to graduate from music because they usually grab the opportunity to perform abroad, in cruise, etc. There were lots of job opportunities posted in the music building. Music degree is so expensive (said to be the 2nd highest tuition fee in UST) but tuition fee isnt a problem. Im just not really sure if I can stand a night life as a performer, Im more confident that I can do better in fine arts.

After this test there will be an interview regarding your art and answers from the paper given. Also, you can also bring your portfolio with you because it will add impression to the professor who will interview you. I did bring mine, and it all went well.
Hope this helps! Papasa ka nyan. From what course ka?
Bust sculpture, life drawing ung gagawin nyo, walang reference picture. Live talaga. Di ko alam kung sino, wala kasi akong caption na nakita.
Yung portfolio ko naka clear folder and nakaayos. Nakalagay na din ung information ko dun.
