So I don't know about all of you guys but it has taken me 7 years from the day that I graduated high school to figure out what I want to do with my life.
I have contemplated everything from Marine Biology to Egyptology, from Animal Health Technician to Photography to Graphic Designer. Every career I have ever considered I have been interested in, and I THOUGHT I would enjoy, but they never grasped me when I researched them further. I would look in to schools that I could go to, what jobs I could get afterwards, etc, and after a few weeks I would just drop it.
Not with this.
I have never felt this way with anything in my life in terms of a job or career or going back to school! I feel like this program and career is calling to me and it brings out an absolute PASSION in me that I have honestly never felt before! It makes me so very excited to just get started and get on with my life.
This would be Makeup Design for Film and Television.
Now for those of you who don't know what that it, it includes: special effects make-up, high fashion, beauty, corrective, and all sorts of make-up. What I'm most interested in is the special effects make-up, so basically you making someone in to a completely made up character.
My goal is to eventually be working on movies and television shows.
I have always been interested in special effects make up my whole life but it wasn't until recently that I found out that you could actually go to school for it! For some reason I had the idea that you had to be self-taught.
In the past 6 months or so I have become a HUUUUUGE Doctor Who fan, and the special effects make up on that show is absolutely amazing. It sparked in me an interest again to actually look in to this as a realistic career choice for me. And I found it!
So this is the school and the program that I am going to be applying to. The top make-up program in the world.
Watch the videos, they are fantastic!
Any ways, just thought I'd share my excitment with all of you!
