I can’t believe this is my sixth and final roundup post this year! There hasn’t been a huge amount going on but here are a few bits I’ve been up to before the year comes to an end…
Sending Off My Application To Uni
Over half term, I finally finished my personal statement which meant I could submit my UCAS application to uni! A few weekends ago however, I went along to another open day at the uni I’m applying to, to meet the new tutor running the course and to ask a few questions. He threw a bit of a curve ball and unfortunately said it’s unlikely the photography course is going to run with it being new this year. I knew this could be a possibility but with the uni advertising the course online, through emails and being an option on the UCAS form, it was not the best news which I would be none the wiser about if we hadn’t gone! It was only that I’d made a mistake on my application form that it didn’t actually get sent off thank the lord haha. They said the only other option is doing photography as part of Fine Art but after going to the talk, I know that’s not the route I want to go down.
It’s meant I’ve been forced to look at other options and through doing so I came across their BA Hons Fashion Communication & Promotion course which sounds like a good other option and is still largely photography based. It will also be focused on fashion which is what I will hopefully go onto do so I’m feeling a bit better about the situation. Maybe it’s a blessing in disguise! The uni have got my application now so I’m just going to cross my fingers!
A New Instagram Account
A little while ago I decided to make an Instagram account to display a bit of my photography. I’ve only put a few posts up as of yet and I’m not sure how often I’ll be posting on there but I’m so excited! I wanted to make sure a username was available as lots regarding my name were already taken too but I managed to get @ameliaarosephotography. I’m also loving having a place to follow other photographers and get inspired! If this is something your interested in, any support would mean so much!
Creating More Fashion Content
I’ve been posting a bit more fashion related content over on my Instagram which I’m really enjoying and of me which may be a good or bad thing haha! It’s a bit tricky taking the photos by yourself but I’m trying to make use of my tripod and mirrors! I’d love to know your thoughts on it and hopefully your enjoying seeing a bit more of my style – all be it comfy and casual!
Countdown To Christmas
It’s the best but definitely the busiest time of year! I’m feeling quite organised this year for Christmas as I managed to get most things around Black Friday but there just doesn’t seem to be enough time! I’ve got more mocks in January so I’m revising for those at the moment as well as my theory test but I’m looking forward to the Christmas break! I’m hoping to get over this virus soon too and be back to my normal self!
I hope you are well and are having a lovely December!
