How I’m Feeling

For those of you who aren’t in my universe (ok so most of you); this is a stressful week for me. My university is hosting a charrette, or

an intense period of design or planning activity

Basically what is happening is in about one hour every graphic design/art major at my university will come together in one room, the department head will probably talk, someone else important will probably talk and then they will tell us a topic, it could be anything, it could be California, it could be self portraits, as of right now we (the students) don’t know! It’s exciting but nerve racking at the same time, they expect A LOT from us, they ARE giving us two days off from school for this…

I did this as a first year, not knowing what to expect, how competitive is it really? What do they expect from us? Well now I know. I am excited to have a little bit of experience under my belt before starting this all up again, but what if they have higher expectations of me then what I produce?!?! Well, all I know is I’m going to do my best and see where that gets me 😀
