i survived {what a ride}…

day one in a design studio & i feel like a kid on roller skates… exhausted, exhilarated & exhausted {ooh, did i say that already?}

my four-month internship started today & i’m sooooo ready for it! i feel like a new person!

firstly, can i say how stupendously lovely it is to be able to walk to work, even if it was drizzling all the way there & all the way back! no over-stuffed tube, no enforced armpit sniffing on the aforementioned tube & no running late because of a person on the track or a signal failure {no siree, won’t miss that}…

secondly, how utterly fabulous to walk into a design studio library wherein live thousands of swatches of paint, fabric, wood, tiles, stone, glass, etc., etc. & to be told you’re gonna get to know this place intimately {yeeeeeeeeeeeehah}… can i snog it already?!?

finally, what a relief to be taken under the wing of some particularly knowledgable, friendly & helpful peeps who are generous in their knowledge but i suspect will push me hard in return… what a fabulous combo!

so, let’s just say i’ll sleep well tonight, then i’m up & ready to do it all again tomorrow!

  1. hi annie… it’s been a long road to get to this point so i’m very excited… left the world of dtp which i have been doing for way too long & have taken a 4 month internship in a locally-based design studio helping out the ff&e department… thrown into the deep end on day one… i just want to soak everything up and learn as much as i can! ps… when are you doing abigail’s masterclass? i got a voucher to do one as my leaving gift from my previous job {spoilt or what!}… so maybe we could actually meet up… are any of the rest of your posse going too?

    • sorry for being thick but what’s dtp and ff&e?
       
      I’m going on Saturday May 26th. I’ve never been so excited about anything in my life, what a saddo! I think Tracey Chalk from Procrastination Mama is coming too, can’t remember if it’s the same day though. It would be great if you came along, if not meet for a drink anyway? Would love to hear more about where/why/how/everything! I’m in Tufnell Park, not sure where you live. Wow what an awesome leaving present!

      • dtp = desktop publishing & ff&e = furniture fittings & equipment (basically sourcing everything that’s not nailed down in the world of interiors… oh, and some things that are!) would love to catch up for a drink… will see if i can do the course that day & if not we can make other plans… i’m in fulham so the other side of london… very nice leaving present from very nice people! spoilt!

i'd love to hear your thoughts...
