Donna takes on a fashion internship

Hello! I’ll say that again because it feels so good to be back in the blogging world! Hello! To all my followers, I genuinely apologise for being away so long from blogging. I had a lot going on. My 5 week uni break, which I was looking forward to and had all these amazing plans for, was turned into a 1.5 week break. Have you ever had to sit a supplementary exam? It sux! They postponed my exam by 3 weeks! Thank God it’s over now. In the end I faced my fears of sitting an exam I previously failed. When you do your best, the end result always pays off. I also joined a local taekwondo club to brush up on my basic technique, improve my fitness and meet some new awesome people! The taekwondo club that I normally go to at uni takes forever to get to since I live so far away. However, I miss the friends I made there a lot! 

I’ve left the most juiciest news for last – today was my first day as a fashion intern. Hold your horses, I didn’t completely drop out of my combined Science/Nursing degree, I decided now since I’m a part time student this Sem, I might as well use my free time productively. My first day was a bit of a roller coaster. I think it’s always hard treading on unfamiliar territory. I met this lovely girl fresh out of high school named, E, who was also interning. It was her 6th week there. She was sweet, we bonded over a lot of things – part-time jobs, fashion, what we want in life. Typically girl stuff.

 

When I think about it, I did quite a bit today – I steamed, prepared clothes and accessories, hung stuff, organised the show room so that look books matched the little sections for each particular designer. All in all, it wasn’t too bad of a day. But I did do a lot of thinking on the 1 hour train ride home. I remember thinking to myself, is this really for me? I kept repeating it too! My gut tells me I need a bit more time. I need to get used to the ins and outs of that fashion agency, the people there, my role as an intern, and just learn as much as I can. I need to get used to the feeling, and soon enough I won’t be considered ‘new’ anymore. I’ve also reset my expectations. I no longer have any. That way you don’t ask for too much, and get more than you bargained for in return. If I could take away one lesson that I learnt today, it’s that to be successful, you have to be prepared to start at the bottom. And that’s exactly what I’m doing, therefore I believe I’m on the right path.

About Donna

If I was to describe myself in a nutshell, I am a 23-year-old, who just graduated! I am someone who is full of spirit, likes to dress cute, has big dreams, and is somewhat adventurous, with quirks that make people smile. Some people have a clear direction of what path they want to follow in life. I on the other hand, have decided to simply follow what make me happy. If you've been doing a little soul searching lately or you're still trying to define the meaning of life, well I can tell you this, if you can't figure out your purpose on this planet, find what it is that you're passionate about. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose. Open your heart. Listen with an open mind. And for God's sake, live a little! I hope you stay a while and read about my 20-something rants, antics and adventures in Sydney, and perhaps pick up a thing or two.
