Update: Life in Manchester

It has been almost two months since I moved here, so many things going on including the life balance between blogging and studying. My "Life in Manchester" is all about "time management" I assume. 

I had felt a bit insecure before I moved here because I hadn't had any ideas of what was going to happen, would I be able to make it, what should I do to reach more brands and etc. However, the more I obsessed about those thoughts, the more I was going to have a heart attack or stress to death lol Therefore, the only thing I tried to convince my self was "You will only know when you are already there

I give all my effort in The Equinox Fashion, my blogging sphere known as my other half. And it all pays off because now I have received emails and contacts from brands, also done a couple of photo shoots so far. It is not merely about working with brands, I also be able to meet lots of people both in this industry and my MA course. I feel really blessed to have these wonderful people surrounded because at least they make me smile and support me of no matter what I do. Have you met anyone who discourages you so far? No kidding, there are tons lol But who give a f****? I don't since I don't really want to waste my time thinking about what others thinking about me. It's useless just to think about those who don't even know who I am. 

It is quite hard to balance my life right now since I have to blog, as well as, study at the same time. I hadn't expected master degree would be such hardcore, but I guess I have to get a grip and continue working on it. It is totally different from Bachelor degree (trust me)! Anyway, this is what I have chosen, so I am the one who responsible for it! 

However, I am so in love with my life right now. I don't know why but I feel like this is the right decision to be here.
