Welp, yesterday was a sad disappointing day for a lot of reasons, but one of them was FIDM. I got a bill for tuition in the mail for fall semester, which led me to email my adviser saying that there was no way that we were going to start paying tuition w/o having jobs secured in California. So, she officially unrolled me from FIDM for Fall 2009. I have up to one year to reinstate until I have to re-apply to the design program. We knew that this was probably going to be the case earlier this summer and decided to book a trip to San Fran in October to get a better feel of the FIDM SF campus and city, but nonetheless, it just really sucks to see an email from your adviser saying, "Keep in touch." Don't know if school will ever happen for me at this point. The reality of Ryan finding a job that pays enough for me to work only part-time at the most and paying tuition of $27,000 a year is pretty out there.
So, my action plan now is taking sewing lessons with a local lady from Joy Studio and applying to marketing, communications, and public relations jobs fashion and beauty companies across the United States. So, if you see or hear of anything, let me know.
