Things you would do differently if you could start SCA again?
By MOSH – The Intake of 2014/15
Sorted my life out. The course takes up the majority of your time and you don’t want to have
things hanging over your head when you start. Get it all sorted, right down to tidying your
room so from day one your attention can be on the work.
Perfect my time management
Be a shit ton better at all the Adobe stuff!!
Learnt the art of meditation.
I would have a bigger picture and a different attitude.
I would have made lunch at home more often and brought it in with me. The amount of
money I have spent on lunch out in Brixton is obscene.
I would be more aggressive with pursuing the people I want to work with.
Gone out more
Put myself forward as head boy so I got keys to the school.
I wish I Concentrated on finding a partner earlier.
Scamped, scamped and scamped some more.
I would have kept reading books, use more time on making my brain think more simple.
Hibernated from the moment I got a place. Woke up on day one.
Move closer to the school.
Discover the Kaff earlier.
Actually follow the plethora of creative techniques.
Have more confidence in myself.
Made some friends.
I wouldn’t have sign up to a very expensive gym membership for a 5 months bundle – never
went and wasted money.
I definitely would have listen to all the previous ‘Advice for the new intake’ from BARK scabs
and actually put them into practice; Networking, working hard and starting early. Being way
more productive with my time. I would also make sure to live closer to brixton so I could get
drunk more often.
It annoy’s me that I leave most things to the last minute, I can’t really work unless I’m under a
lot of pressure, it’s the only way I can make myself focus and I often work till around 4 or 5 in
the morning without stopping. It’s the worst habit and I wish I could learn to time manage
and not stress myself out for the sake of it and do work in good time. I’m working on it
Leave the studio more often.
Maybe had a bit more confidence in myself… Nothing could have prepared me for what came
with SCA but I wouldn’t change a thing. A lot of hard lessons are learned, a lot of talent is
nurtured and it’s one of the best environments you could’ve end up in.
Bring my lunch!
Leant how to salsa dance.
I would have learnt how to use illustrator and photoshop earlier.
I would have learnt to dance for town hall.
Spend less time worrying and more time doing.
I wish I’d started wearing underwear sooner.
Je ne regrette rein,
C’est payé, balayé, oublié
Je me fous du passé
Avec mes souvenirs
J’ai allumé le feu
Learnt a bit of photoshop/illustrator before I came.
I would have slept more.
I wish I had sent more thank you cards.
Start everyday by a drawing, ends everyday with a better one.
To collect more dots.
Maybe I would’ve picked a safer personal brand. One more people can get behind. Probably
crafted a catchphrase for it too, something supportive like: “great work.”
Worked harder at referring to the notes. It’s annoying having to learn things several times.
