    A week before induction at Camberwell I panicked because I knew I was only an average, lazy artist - that come graduation when I was on my own I wouldn't be successful or have my own gallery exhibitions. So I came home, studied a year of travel and tourism (just to get my functional skills 2 Maths) at a local college for a year and got onto a tourism management course at a local uni starting this September.

    Except at the last minute I've changed to BA architecture. The thought of studying tourism fills me with a nameless dread, so I applied to architecture which I never thought about before but now I'm really excited because it incorporates design, technology and history which I've always had an interest in.

    Basically if your disciplined and dedicated and can take knock backs then go for it, it's your life not your dad's. But if your scraping by with little confidence and changing your mind think about mixing design with something else.


    *Also it doesn't take hard work to get into Slade, just a talent. A guy from my extended diploma course is at Slade now and he only showed up twice a week with the worst attendance. It was all about his portfolio for them...
