Summer 2016 Update

*this was meant to go up a couple of days ago, but limited wifi meant otherwise* 


For once this life update is a pretty positive one, especially as I have good things to say(what feels like finally!)

However I am aware it's taken me ages to write this post, and honestly, it's 50% knowing what to write/not knowing where to start and 50% enjoying the break and not wanting to write.

In July I finally finished my secondary education/ sixth form courses. I cannot even begin to tell you how happy I am that I don't attend school anymore. I grated sixth form approximately 1 month into my first year, but knew I needed a levels/equivalents for if/when I go to theatre school.

After numerous issues within the courses AGAIN (I really wouldn't recommend my school to anyone after how I and many others were treated in the past two years, it was disgusting.) Thankfully on results day everything came out as expected and I got the grades I wanted/needed this year. Alongside the grades I received in previous years (past readers know of the drama!) I am as happy as I can be. It's not what I was promised/worked for, nor is it a bad reflection following a number of personal situations in this time.

On a positive, this time last year I took my Grade 8 musical theatres singing examination, which I missed the pass mark by 2 marks. I retook it this year, feeling far more confident about  my pieces and my voice, I had never felt so ready for an exam. It feels really nice to say that I achieved 82/100, which meant I passed my exam with a high merit grade, and when I received my results I sat and had a little cry, not only had I passed my grade 8, an achievement I had wanted to accomplish for years, but for the first time in years, it felt like everything was going to plan/my way for once.

During the first week of August I attend a Musical Theatre audition technique course at GSA (Guildford School of Acting), and I can wholeheartedly say it was one of the best weeks of my life. Thrown into student living with approximately 200 people on different courses who all want the same career instantly reminded everyone of how competitive the industry is. After an intense week of singing, panels, dancing and acting, I came home questioning whether I still wanted 

In the middle of September I start a 1 year foundation is equivalent to degree level at my local college. I'm equally as nervous as I am excited. During my week at Guildford I became very excited about dance again, as even though I do struggle with it, I equally enjoy it. (Although I desperately need to get fit as a matter of urgency.)

I have always been a firm believer in everything happens for a reason, and to conclude this little life update, it finally seems as if 'life' might be going my way...

(probably jinxed that last bit, but what is my life without drama)
