When I graduated high school last year, I had no idea what I was going to do. Unlike most people, I hadn’t applied to even one college because I got horrible grades in high school so I assumed I had to go to a community college.
To make this into a short story, I was accepted to the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) where I have now paid over $25,000 for my first year and I hate it. This is not a post about how much I dislike FIDM, but to make sure you don’t make the same mistake I did.
I went into something way too soon and now sit here with $25,000 basically down the drain. Just because you love fashion, music, or anything else does not mean you need to go to a specialty school to be successful and now I realize that.
I have decided that I want to do public relations in fashion, which does NOT mean I need to go to FIDM, FIT, or Parsons to do that. You can be successful in anything you want to do as long as you are willing to work for it.
Some of you lovelies who are graduating or have already may know this, but before you make your next life changing decision, make sure you really think about it.
Are you planning on college, or are you in college? Are you at peace with your plans?
