55 AND STILL DREAMING
Many learned in childhood that singing is something for other people. So, City Lit college has classes full of middle-aged men and women who try to learn singing, drawing, film making, ballet and writing. They love the college and are excited about the courses. When in childhood the road into art has been blocked through many reasons such as parents or no money. So, there you find them in their masses still dreaming and planning into their future, to become perfect in drawing, or becoming great singers.
It isn’t cheap to join the college, but worth it. The teachers are amazing and one really learns there a lot. Other people think of going back to university and prepare themselves through many years, using such colleges. It is worth it as this is something life has to offer and is fun if you prepare long enough for it so that you are not hit from behind with uni-stress. If you like to study any art module, City Lit and the likes will help but you need 3 years at least to perfect your craft. Or home study colleges to do A-level English with Literature to be able to write proper essays.
Instead of thinking of how to earn money with your study, planning for a profession. You can now plan to go wild, do study what your heart aces for. Following your dream is following your blueprint which society has tried to stomp out. It is not anymore the 80’s or earlier, but we are all older. Sadly so we are not in our 20’s, but the young who has the chance these days to study what they want, must have then the guts to find a way to earn a living with it, which can for some become quite tricky and some end up in depression. So learning is always on the table for everyone. I know a girl who is 25 now and has done an art course in university, just to find that at the end she is unemployed and don’t know how to make money with it, how to create a interesting life for herself with the skills.
