I'm currently sitting in front of my laptop with wet hair and no make-up on, going through the documentation of one documentary project I have a meeting about in Zagreb tomorrow. I found out about it yesterday afternoon while reading a new Zoella book and bitching about this crazy heatwave.
Yes, Academy is done. Finished. Once and for all.
It happened last week but it already feels like years ago.
Maybe it's because I've already been in this position after getting my BA degree or maybe it's just due to the fact that life happens and doesn't allow you to properly adjust to this new situation of not being a student anymore (cheers to that!).
In a way, I feel a bit weird about not having to return to Academy in October because that has been a well-known routine for so many years but I'm most definitely not sad about it because I'm so ready and looking forward to making new routines and focusing on this crazy little big thing called real life.
And even though freelance life is insanse, intense and kinda scary because it guarantees no safety, I'm so happy that it's my current reality.
It's no secret that this is the lifestyle I always wanted, ever since I was a little girl who fell in love with that on the road life of a filmmaker because I was surrounded with it. It was so addictive, different, creative, free and fun and pretty much from day one I knew there is nothing else in the world I wanted more.
I don't think I've ever been this calm in my entire life. And happy. And confident.
This actually has nothing to do with the fact that student life is now behind me, it's about all the experiences I've gone through on this journey (the good and the bad) that have shaped me in the person who I am today.
Please don't get me wrong, I am definitely not the most fearless person in the world but I'm working on it. I don't have everything figured out. Actually I have nothing figured out but I know what I want and in my world, that's all that matters. So many things scare me but I'm not letting them get to me. But also, let's not forget that a healthy dose of fear is a good thing, it means you're still a human being with emotions.
Cheers to the crazy beautiful unknown and I'm so glad I have all of you guys with me along for this adventure!
