“…I’d be a supermodel.”
There’s a good stress and a bad stress and I think this past year I have learned to deal with both. By good I mean the stress that inevitably comes with the industry, but that consequently makes you a better person and makes you learn to deal with many things at the same time ( Multitasking ). And then the bad stress that comes as a result of making silly mistakes (e.g. not double checking the address of the casting and then ending up on a completely different side of london, and then having to rush to the actual location with just 10 minutes left), but hey it’s all part of life and the learning experience.
Having to deal with a full time challenging course (Architecture) as well as modelling, networking and blogging is pretty intense. I mean it is very doable, but when you want to do each one to the best that you can it is quite challenging as you somehow have to put in as much time into each as you would if that was the only thing you were doing. I’ve realised it’s all down to the mind. The way people set limits for themselves and how anything is achievable. I have always believed anything is possible – insert cheesy quote here – no seriously though, as long as its approachable, as long as there is that minute gap for you to let your foot into the door, it is very possible. And my religious belief is the main source of my confidence. I can see that every day that I encounter all this good stress I become a more organised and more efficient. And I feel like the best way to deal with things is to become used to that, and to realise that all this stress, hardwork, constantly thinking of what there is to do next, is all part of a focus. A focus towards the bigger image.
So yeah, I can be an architect/model/blogger/dancer/mountainclimber/guitarplayer/bodycontortionist..
I think I went a bit overboard there. And so what if you blow up? Life goes on. You just focus on what you love the most and shed off the rest until you are at a point that you are still getting a bit of rest in-between. And for me, it’s never too much. When you don’t have a lot of time you focus the little time you have with people that really matter to you, and that’s been the best part of it. You only have one life to live, and I’m certainly not going to cry in a corner and look back and think about all the things that I could have done.
Oh yes, and a lack of sleep of course. That’s a big part of it.
I wish I had a wrecking ball.
