No, not the National Basketball Association, or even the National Boxing Association for that matter as I haven’t the slightest interest in either of those sports. Rather an acronym I created for what I’m calling ‘Not Blogging in April’ which is fairly self explanatory. The reason for this is simply that I haven’t enough time to be writing a blog alongside my ongoing revision for my upcoming GCSE’s as all my free time has been booked by the numerous jobs I am taking on as the day that I am flung out of the nest comes ever closer. It’s time I started building a portfolio with the appropriate work experience so that I may give myself the best possible opportunity. It’s time I set my priorities straight and this blog isn’t one of them. Nevertheless, tumblr has always provided me with an endless source of inspiration and more and thus one can still expect to see plenty of reblogs on anything and everything that I find interesting, just be aware that there will be a lack of original content in the coming months. That having been said one can look forward to Photo Fridays returning momentarily as I finally have some pictures worth sharing as a result of some of hopefully more work experience. I appreciate your understanding.
My parents have always supported me in whatever I do, but now, as I embark on the most important stage in my life I feel as if I can no longer count on them for their support. I want to be a director. Nothing more, nothing less. I want to study film in university and that’s what I want to do with my life. The trouble is that this isn’t exactly what my parents had in mind. I consider myself to be a Jack of all trades but a master of nothing. I’m good at school, but I’m not great. I’m more creative than academic and hence I excel in the arts. So as one would expect it is this path that I want to follow. But when I told my parents today that I didn’t want to sit an A level maths paper on top of my GCSE’s they were slightly taken aback as that is the last thing they would expect from me and rightly so. I’ve always wanted to push myself to my maximum potential and so if an offer ever arose you could bet your bottom dollar that I would take it. This time though, I’m not so sure as I feel that I may have finally reached my limits. You can do anything if you put your mind to it, but it helps if your mind isn’t elsewhere and to be honest I don’t give a hoot about maths. I do it because I have to, not because I want to. I want to make films.
