Food for Thought

I'm thinking about starting a series all about 'deep and meaningful' things called 'Food for Thought'; so I thought I'd start with my current life motto, which is... You'll never know unless you try! I know it's an old favourite  (it's similar to the Coldplay lyric from "Fix You" : But if you never try you'll never knowbut it's been so relevant at the moment, I just thought I'd tell you all about it!

Recently there has been a lot of discussion around school about our futures, anyone would expect that from year 12; however what's more, so many opportunities have arisen that could aide me in the future, and I'm proud to say I've tried to seize most of them!

For example, the admissions tutor from Oxford university came to our school to speak about university and during his talk he mentioned his sister, who is now stylist for the band MUSE (I know!!) but had many struggles getting into the fashion industry. As I'm interested in going into fashion post-Uni I made the decision to be slightly cheeky and to ask for his Email so he could put me in contact with her... And guess What? He was so lovely, he didn't even bat an eyelid! Although I'm still waiting for a reply, I'm so glad I've even tried and know that I would have regretted not asking him!

So many other things have been like this recently (I applied for the World Scout Jamboree staff team too) and I can't believe how much difference it has made; it's crazy how much better I am at accepting 'rejection'

My overall message for you this weekend is don't be afraid of asking, or trying, the worst they could do is say no (another thing that several people have told me in the past few months!), which is definitely much better than regretting something.

Have a lovely weekend, let me know what you think about this kind of post!
