« I am Leaving the Blog | Main | Rejected »

Nat Ashman has left the building....

Nat Ashman has left the building....

Ok, last entry of life. I've made this promise to my dear dear dear Natti boom batti, who left the building last week. And while she might think it's all about her, I've managed to start her goodbye entry by talking about me. Joke's on you, Nat. Alora...

in true natti style. i lost the questions and ran out of that bunker of a building, so being all about me....i made up the questions. sorry matt but i think it went something like this.

What was your life like pre fabrica?
I was teaching kids to be better at art, can u believe it? I am an arts teacher. I was also dreaming about not watching others being creative and doing this myself, somewhere abroad, preferably hot. I guess i got what i wanted.

What was life like during Fabrica?
It is full of more highs than lows. I have met wonderful, crazy, somewhat insane and the most determined and talented people so far in my life. I have hated, loved, shouted, laughed, cried on street corners, given up and got on with it...generally all in a day. well i guess what i adopted was a bit of that Italian drama.

The ups?
I will condense, Reed Young. Finding my design partner in crime, Pia. Gaining patience, you will not believe it but its true. Miranda Orfei, you all need to see a poddle on a pony. Silly dancing.

The downs?
It's a small town in more than one way.

What advice would u have wanted before coming here?
I don't think it matters you always change your mind and things that you thought you would never do, you just do! I mean i am lucky i knew a lot of people before I got here and i am bad at acting on other people's advice anyway but i like this one: Think less do more.

What is the most important thing you learned here?
Not to order cappuccino after breakfast time. Thanks Cosimo

What is the plan now?
To finish on a bang with this exhibition in my hometown - London, check it out! To enjoy good music, see old friends, sleep a bit and catch up with myself before i seek new horizons with my beautiful boy.

Any parting words? Any thanks to give?
Enjoy it, a year goes really really quickly. Try not to spend your time thinking about what you should do or want to be doing. If you don't get on with the system it means that it just doesn't work for you, so leave
or have some fun outside, venice is just minutes away. It's a good place to meet great people, make most of the climate if you are like me from a grey and cold city, get a bike and ride around town, ask fernando to tell u a joke, have a coffee with scott, do some dancing with michael, get diego to tell u something you never knew, look at patty - that smile will always make you smile, take amelie to the beach she is brilliant
fun, listen to 80's tunes with madu and take advice from the prins, he's always right. I thank you all, especially the ones that have just left us.

The mass exodus of women begins with Natalie: the lover, the fighter and a very true friend indeed. We're already missing your moves and cackle Nat. I love you and hate to see you go.

good luck nat!!! begin the new start with a bang! sorry i wasn't much help with the invites.... but im sure you'll do really great! i remember the first day you came by and slept on the couch, all anxious to take that step into the surreal world of everything and nothing.

I miss you loads and i hope we'll see each other soon, somewhere somehow.

thanks for all the chats and invaluable advice on boys and what not. I have learnt well and good! ;)

and please give a good grope to my lovely flatmate, pia.

My darling Ebony i really can't believe you've gone, i feel a bit lost without you here. We have had so so many laughs (quite often at each others expenses) all our little freak outs, social slip ups etc. They will stay with me forever. I just thank god you arrived here and saved me in so many ways! Capisco? Hahah

Working with you has been amazing, our portfolio is HOT we will rock London baby. You are a truely unique, beautiful and hillarious girl and I hope we continue with 'Studio Babe' on home turf!

I look forward to having you back as my friend too, not just my work partner. I love you Ebbs.

Nattichat! So it's finally on to bigger and better things. I would say that I'll miss you but I'm already gone too. But, I want you to know that you made my time at Fabrica tolerable, in a place like Fabrica that says a lot. You are a character beyond words, and that’s why I put this off for so long. It's difficult to do any justice in writing. But I'll give it my best: Many of my best moments from Fabrica we're spent with you. On my balcony, on a dark street-corner smokin dope, in that booty bar in Milan, blah blah blah. The list in my head goes on and on. Anyway I hope that you are one of the few friendships that lasts until the end. Mostly because I like your parents so much, but you're cool too. Now go out and get a big fancy job so that when I come to London you're doing as well as i expect you will be.
Love, Reed
P.S. "yeah chocolate"
