My first Entry, : )

I joined Chichester Collage September 2016, for most of my adult life I have daydreamed about missed opportunities and deliberated about returning to study,  a career in Animation always seemed to win hands down. I left my career behind when I started a plugging away at my drawing putting my heart and soul into it. I enrolled on the Animation Diploma course at Chichester College.  Going to back to study was such a long standing goal buried deep in my subconscious that embarking on this new path in life happened almost instinctively and without thought. Before I knew it, I was completing my application form and coming to terms with the possibility getting my portfolio ready. I felt that my love for drawing was back after going to some evening classes and ready to take the next steps.

I felt both excited and daunted by the prospect of being a student and at first relished the idea of being at collage. Never fear though, as help is always at hand and I plucked up the courage to talk to my tutor - lesson number one was to always ask for help when you need it.  After a teary conversation and thoughts about giving up even before I had properly started. Talking through my anxieties with someone with my tutor had been there and done it was all I needed and I realised that maybe my idea of college wasn’t quite the reality. Being a student is different for everyone, whether you are in your thirties and changing careers or just starting out as an eighteen-year-old.

I felt uneasy about being a mature student. I thought I didn’t fit in and stood out with a beacon on my head flashing ‘old person’, but the reality is that your age and background really don’t matter and everyone experiences the same anxieties, nerves and daunting feelings about their new environment. As it happens, the younger students enjoy my company and I theirs. We have a good laugh and, whilst they provide me with much-needed entertainment, our friendships our based on mutual respect and understanding, because fundamentally, we are all in the same boat regardless of our backgrounds. Making friends with both young and mature students has been at the heart of my success this year, because sharing and talking through experiences has boosted my confidence in what started out as quite an alien environment.  Being extremely organised and disciplined and having an amazing mum who has encouraged me. Around every corner is a new experience or hurdle to overcome, but with the right tools and remembering lesson number one, they are not only surmountable, but really enjoyable too.  After those initial couple of weeks, I have never looked back approaches, I  feel excited about jumping, head first, into student life again, but believe me, I wasn’t feeling quite so confident this time last year.
