leap of faith
when it came down to it... it was all up to me. i could back away now or i can take that leap. despite my family's disapproval, i made the decision on my own. i chose fidm.
as college students, we don't always know what we want. but that's the beauty of being in school, especially a school like fidm. it's the discovery of deep passion i didn't know i had that keeps me going. some days we know exactly what we want, some days we wonder what we're fighting for.
the adventures at fidm at times has brought me the greatest joy and other times, the greatest frustration, but i learn something new each day... about myself, where i want to go... and who i eventually want to be.
it isn't always easy. actually, life at fidm can be very hard. but it's all up to YOU. only you know what's best for YOU. how will you get through it? are you willing to take risks? are you willing to work hard? are you ready for this?
take that leap of faith.
even if you fall, and i'm not saying you won't. you will--probably a few times. but you'll have to pick yourself right back up.

You can see each setback as a fatal blow to the achievement of your dream. Or you can learn from all the ups and the downs and make the achievement of your dream all the more valuable as a result of each challenge.
You can pounce upon each bit of bad news and extrapolate it to portend the end of the world. Or you can celebrate the fact that bad news is news only because it is so relatively rare.
You can decide that everyone is out to get you and withdraw from life in fear. Or you can jump right into the tangled, confused, exciting and delightful mixture that every moment brings, and find real treasure in it all.
You can sit and wait and complain and convince yourself that things will never get better. Or you can enthusiastically jump forward and make life the best it can be.
Whatever the situation, whoever is involved, you always have a choice. Choose each time to express the authentic beauty of your being, and live in a world where life is so very good.

SPRING QUARTER 2009 begins!
Hello hello... my fellow bloggers... or stalkers.
Tomorrow marks the first day of spring quarter 2009 and I'll be the first to admit that I am actually looking forward to it. Maybe it's the coffee bean talking, or the fact that I can't stand my roommate, or my random acts of boredom from spring break, but whatever it is I am SO ready to go back to school.
Bright and early, my first class is at 8:30 AM, but I have no idea which classroom it's in (CHECK YOUR PORTAL).
Time to call it a night. Stay tuned everyone, theFIDMlife will be packed with all sorts of fun this quarter!

Life at FIDM
I hate to break it to you, but FIDM is not what it is on ‘The Hills’. There’s more to FIDM life than boys and night clubs and underage drinking. Life as a fashion design student is stressful and challenging—to say the least. All classes meet only once a week, but dare miss one and you’re screwed. The amount of material we get each week is intense.
Personally, I have created some great friendships along the way. Though we just met, these people I know will always back me. We stay up all night even if we don’t have to do homework. Okay I lied, I always fall asleep before everyone—but besides the fact, I love hanging out with those who share the same passions I have.
