I’m a tireless seeker of knowledge and I crave access to opinions and thought processes different to mine so that I can be ridiculously well informed. I may also choose to ignore all of those and just go with my gut 🙂
I think life is brilliant, beautiful and completely absurd all in one. That’s why I’m taking to blogging… to sum up the brilliant, beautiful and absurd as it applies to me and hopefully so that it brings a smile to others… or at least makes them think for a second.
I should never (ever!) be allowed to become bored.
I come up with occasionally brilliant pearls of wisdom – and these usually work in stellar ways for others but not when applied to me… an acknowledged and accepted fact of life. I actually think it’s kind of amusing.
I’m also (apparently by pure coincidence) an Interior Designer (12 years) and a Student of Architecture (halfway through Third Year). I started my life over at 30. It’s the best decision I’ve ever made. Well, sort of. I’m not going to lie and say this is easy. At times it’s the most heart-wrenching, horrible experience. I’m awake for the majority of the semester. I live on coffee and sugar and heavily caffeinated drinks. But I’m still passionate.
Something else I’ve started this year is tutoring in interior design and drawing. I absolutely live for it…. It’s the most inspiring, rewarding thing I’ve ever done 🙂
I’ve finally gotten around to uploading the majority of my Architecture projects from my first couple of years of (mature age) student life… check them out under the ‘Architecture Stuff’ link, next to the ‘About’ link…
My passion and creativity drives everything that I do. Without them, I can safely say I would be seriously adrift. I’d also probably be a lot more sane but sane is not as exciting or everything it’s cracked up to be 😉
It stands to reason that my life philosophy will heavily ingratiate its way into my design philosophy. I’m still trying to work out exactly what that life philosophy is and that’s the fun part.
Not many people get a second chance to live life the way they want to, so I’m diving in head first but this time, I’m keeping both eyes open.
Please don’t be afraid to comment – I really enjoy reading what other people have to say! Or if you want to email, it’s firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂
