Well, truth be told, I'm not sure at all what the future holds for me. That's part of being human, right? These past few days I've been making decisions for myself, what's best for me. Basically organizing my life based on my own calculations. Can I handle this? Do I work, or play? That sort of thing. Small decisions, big decisions. Whatever, that's another story.
But anyway, today at college, there was this whole Australian Education Fair thing going on. You know, the usual. Representatives from universities from all over Australia come over and try to sell themselves to students over here.
Anyway, me and my spirit sibling, Nana, happen to notice that there was a university that had a Bachelor of Fine Arts thing going on. And so we discovered Queensland University of Technology (QUT). The guy at the QUT desk was so friendly and helpful (thank you, Ben Bawden) and instantly made me and Nana feel like the place was somewhere we could achieve something. He was honest about it all too, telling us the bad along with the good, but nothing we figured we couldn't handle.
|Brisbane skyline in the evening. Gah, this place is beautiful.|
So I've had people tell me that Brisbane is dull. But I firmly believe that one only gets bored if one is unable to make something fun. And I feel that Queensland has a lot to offer. I mean, it's coastal. Coastal places are usually great. And the weather seems mild and the place appears to be just so beautiful. And it has tall buildings! I love tall buildings! (Note: Whatever you may want to believe, I am not Peter Parker/Spider-Man. I like tall buildings for other reasons.)
|Gold Coast, Australia. I love it already.|
And it's apparently only an hour's drive away from Gold Coast. Can you imagine what we can do during breaks? Do you see those waves? I frickin' love waves.
Oh wait, back to the topic. I got really interested in their Acting, Drama and Technical Production courses and stuff. Then there's the double major possibilities. By then I knew that QUT made it to my list of places I'm absolutely going to apply to. It was also by then that I figured out that Ben Bawden was probably very good at his job.
Ah well, we'll see who wants me. Keep me in your prayers, loves.
