Half of my experience
I’m almost halfway through my school experience, and the work is getting very intense… We have a lot to think about and a lot of ideas to develop. I think I understand English a little better but the briefs are still difficult for the French. I discover new things every day through work and I learn a lot. I had to complete my portfolio and I am proud of many of my projects. But I still have so much to learn and see …
I’m super happy with the briefs we have, I find them really interesting. It is true that I find it difficult to work in a team, especially when I don’t understand everything.
I started looking for work after December and sending in my applications, I really hope I can find a job that suits me.
On a personal level, I always find it hard to be away from the people I love. My adaptation to this life is still difficult. But I’m happy because my family and my boyfriend are coming to London this month. It will really be a relief and fill me with happiness. I can’t wait to see them and have a reason to come home at night.
They also have to bring me some French food in their suitcases. I really miss French food, because I can’t really adapt to English food. I dream of fresh meat every day. My roommates only cook things that look really bad and I have a hard time smelling the smells and seeing their foods! So I am losing a lot of weight! I get sick a lot, to be honest here. I think a lot of it is because of my stress, my anxiety, and my bad morale! But things are getting better and better … I try to clear my mind, focus on work and get moving.
I also do a lot of sport and that is good for the mind. It frees my mind.
Finally, I have been evolving and growing a lot since September, either personally or professionally and I hope to continue like this. I would really like to be more comfortable with the English but it’s really not easy. I work on this every day. And I would also like to point out that London is an incredible city, which I love to visit, photograph and film. This city is magical and I can’t wait to see it during Christmas time.
