“Better Days”

“You can never be overdressed or overeducated.” ― Oscar Wilde.

This how I think and aim to live my life everyday, with a touch of Wilde’s sense of humour. Though I have had another setback. I found out today that I was not successful for a 2014/2015 place on the Royal College of Art’s Innovation Design Engineering (IDE) joint MA+MSc programme, which I applied for and recently had an interview for last month. See the confirmation email of this below:

Well, this is very tough for me: Life is kicking me in the balls yet again. Most of all, I am truly so sorry to disappoint you, but words cannot express enough how much I appreciate your ongoing support and kindness. 


Since graduating in 2012, I just can’t catch a break and no one seems capable (or willing) to give me a chance. All I want is to work/collaborate in the Creative industries, but it is not happening and I don’t feel like I’m getting any support from within the industry – particularly within the Advertising industry. I’m tired. I’m frustrated. I’m angry.

I feel like I’m going mad trying not to be typecast and showing people that I am not an idiot dickhead in a wheelchair who is only able to do charity advertising! There’s a lot more to me than anyone realises. That’s why I decided to apply to the awesome RCA’s IDE programme because I feel like it is what I was made to do, but not necessarily through the traditional entry route; and I think it is a better fit for me. It’s the second time I have applied to a programme at the RCA (though last year was a different programme in another different RCA school) and wasn’t accepted. However, at least I was invited for an interview for the IDE programme this year. Hopefully, when I reapply to the Innovation Design Engineering (IDE) programme next year, third time’s the charm to get in.

Anyway, yes this is shite and I don’t know where life will take me, but I am just going to work even harder from now on and keep smiling. I am going to continue to push my boundaries to carve out opportunities to live life to my fullest potential. As Oscar Wilde best said, “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”

I also am going to persist and proceed with working on my many interesting projects this year, which I aim to further develop and learn as a person. So watch this space for greatness! ONWARDS and UPWARDS.

To end, I leave you with some lyrics from the inspirational new song “Better Days” that is on the forthcoming new album of the lovely and talented Andreya Triana:
"… When the going gets tough, I just hold my head up; I know there’s better days to come, better days to come… When it feels too much, I just throw my hands up; I know there’s better days to come, better days to come…"

Take care and speak soon. #Cheers! #STRONGERTOGETHER :) #MuscleWarriors #MuscleHelpFoundation #ONWARDSandUPWARDS #London #2014 #friend #friends #creative #creativity #MuscularDystrophy

@musclewarrior @ryantym: This evening my #good #mate Mr. @MichaelMc_Grath (founder & #Chief #MuscleWarrior of the Muscle Help Foundation) came to visit. #ThankYou Michael for stopping by, despite a long and tiring day —it was #awesome to see you and I really enjoyed our chat! We MUST do it again soon. He and the MHF are the #great people who provided me with the #amazing #GamesInspired #MuscleDreams #experience during the #London2012 #Paralympics (and I’m wearing my #MuscleWarriors t-shirt today that I was given for that event), which I’ll never forget and for their kindness I will be forever grateful.

I also would like to finally publicly state that I absolutely #love the #branding of the #MuscleHelpFoundation that was created by the #talented Ryan Tym, and Ryan, as someone with a creative background myself, I just want to say you did a #fantastic job! I hope we can meet up sometime in the near future, so I can say hello and tell you this in person?

Anyway, thanks again Michael, it’s much #appreciated. I very much look forward to working with you to make this our best year yet as well. Take care and speak soon. #Cheers! #STRONGERTOGETHER :) #ONWARDSandUPWARDS #London #2014 #friend #friends #creative #creativity #MuscularDystrophy

@GameOfThrones @thronecast @skyatlantic: And so the #story continues in #TheRealm. Just watched #GoTSeason4 #premier #live and now watching #Thronecast. #Love it so far. Looking forward to having something #awesome to watch on #TV again! :) #GameOfThrones #GameofThrones #GoT #Season4 #London #2014 #StillAwake

@RBandH @TargetMD: Went back to the #RoyalBrompton #Hospital’s #CentreforSleep earlier today to get my #new #ventilator and #mask sorted so it’s more comfortable, as well as being able to wear it all night. As you can see, my #nose (that looks like I have had a big #kickoff) is now starting to heal as you can see on the bottom right. #Thanks again to the #legendary #genius that is #Professor #AnitaSimonds and her #entire #amazing team who are always #incredibly #kind, #supportive, and #thorough!!! Also, I have been asked by the Professor to #consult and #advise on a new unit of the hospital that will be #designed specifically for #patients with #neuromuscular #conditions like myself. #Excited…

#Good #News too : Checked my #pulse #oximetry and I was told that the O2 saturation is between 99 and 100% which is #awesome! My health with all this #support from the hospital #team and being provided with a #New #ventilator and #mask, will only get #better; and hopefully, this will increase my #health, #life and overall #wellbeing. #ONWARDSandUPWARDS. :) #London #healthy #partyon #funtimes #2014 #MuscularDystrophy #HealthIsWealth #CHEERS (at Royal Brompton Hospital)

Saturday night — me and the #lovely ladies in my family (Mum and my two sisters) at #cinema after watching Captain America: The Winter Soldier. #London #events #2014 #family #film #Marvel #funtimes (at Vue Cinema)

So I had the best weekend in a long time! On Friday, I did a massive spending spree treating myself: bought lots new clothes from #Topman and an enormous duffle bag from #TheNorthFace for my trip to #Berlin in July. Also, I got a huge box of #Macaroons from L’Orchidēe for #Mama to have on #MothersDay. Saturday and Sunday was a big Mother’s Day extravaganza — On Saturday night I took the lovely ladies in my family (Mum and my two sisters) to the cinema to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier; and then on Sunday we just took it easy together and in the evening my older sister got an amazing, #tasty #feast with #dessert from the #legendary #restaurant @abbotsmitre in #Chilbolton. What a brilliant weekend with my family but I just wish my dad was in the country to share this with us! Miss you dad (and I hope to you soon). X Stay tuned for a lot of #photos from this weekend. #London #events #2014 #family #food #funtimes
