While talking to my babe-dar, PHYL, i started thinking about Post-secondary and what the fuck i'm gonna do after highschool so that i'm not struggling and hustling my way through life. So i was looking into schools in Toronto and Van, and came across Lasalle College in Vancouver. I read up on it and the program that i want to take (Fashion Merchandising) looks really good and it's only less than a year to finish it! So i thought i'd take note of this school, although i still am looking for others (Ryerson is still in my mind). Which is what i need to be doing because the next 2 years will go by so quickly. I also need to look into what scholarships i can apply for in grade 12, i'm going to apply for as many as i possibly can! So I just need to focus for the next couple of years and i'll be good. I am very interested in being a Buyer or Visual Merchandiser mostly, but all of these jobs are appealing to me so we'll see!
