Interview date: March 13th.
Days left: 45.
This is probably the most nerve wrecking, sleep depriving, just exhausting time of my life ahead of me, until that day.
I have never...yes, NEVER...been to ANY interview in my entire life, and trying to sell "me and my art" is probably the worst part of this.
I'm ABSOLUTELY terrified, and just sh**ting bricks.
BUT! (phew, there's a but...)
For some strange reason I must have had some kind of a vision or whatever, because I just wrote down my exact plan of what my portfolio is going to look like and contain. The best part? IT FLOWS!!!
Imagine this. You're at an interview to an art college, and among all the other questions, the panel asks you to talk them through your portfolio.
"So I started with some poses cos your website said to do that, then i drew some flowers cos I saw that's still life on Google, and then I painted some bananas cos that's just all yellow so it was easy and your website said you wanted to see color, and then in my personal section I just have some doodles I drew when I was 10 cos I didn't really have time to draw anything new cos I was exhausted after all the painting and messing with crayons".
If this was even a potential event that could happen in my life, I'd set myself on fire... (you know, when you burn from embarrassment? Cut out the middle man? You get the point). Anyway, this will absolutely NOT happen in my case, not at this interview, and
I have thought my whole portfolio through from page one til last, and I know exactly what's going to be in it, how I'm going to organize it, what content and media it'll contain, and all that other extremely important details. I have everything figured out down to the last shred of lead in my pencils and I am feeling quite....ready I think is a good word to use here.
If anyone would like to wire over some interview/public speaking skills, that would me much appreciated ❤Belle
