The Learning Curve

'I find myself back here again but this time everything feels different.'

My three years at university have come to an end, which in hindsight is the greatest thing and was rather overdue. The experience was a true character building and learning experience twenty-four-seven and completely worth it. Although, a few tens of thousands of pounds (that I would have liked to have seen) and three years of stress and sleep disorder is a strange way to instil some confidence into an originally 100% insecure mind.

The person I was arriving on my first day is a million miles away from the guy who just handed in his last assignment a week ago. (Admittedly on an extension, although all that really means is you don't have more time overall, just more pressure and nagging voices against you). But what's strange now is that I even feel different from that 'guy' last week. I just hope my physical aging isn't as fast as my mind!

Although, ending university has enhanced that great and immense pressure to do and achieve something fast in order to be a success. But I’m just going to relax the heart rate a bit, get some scripts under my belt, build on my learning and contacts, and work my own way through in my own time.

I've learnt a lot over the last three years about scriptwriting, the industry, myself and people in general, however the biggest thing learnt, is the fact I have sooooooooooooo much to learn!
