Life imitates art far more than art imitates life.

Greetings from an English 21-year-old (recent) BA Architecture graduate/survivor. Currently working as an architectural assistant. I adore Morrissey, tea, classic films, reading, poetry, autumn, wine and Italy. I have too many improbable ambitions.

Audrey Hepburn at home with her pet deer, Ip, and her jealous Yorkshire Terrier, Mr. Famous, Beverly Hills, California, 1958.  Photographs by Bob Willoughby. Ip lived with Audrey weeks before filming Green Mansions, so that the two had time to bond.

Today I got to spend half the day at work doing hand-drawing. I love my job.

Finished my second day of work today. Things are already happening so fast - I’ve felt more useful (I like to think) and have been given more responsibility than I thought I would have at this point, and the people are really great, friendly and helpful. I have a feeling I will enjoy this year, though I can tell already that it’ll be a steep learning curve!

I’ve been offered a job as an architectural assistant!!!

After 2 and a half months of job hunting and interview-going, I’ve been offered a job for an interview I attended only yesterday. It’s only a small practice, but this means I’ll get to have some really great, varied, hands-on experience which will help me transform from creative-hand-drawing-bullshitter into real-life-architect!

…it still hasn’t quite sunk in!!
