"She knew this transition was not about becoming someone better, but about finally allowing herself to become who she'd always wanted to be."
Midterms week is upon us and being it is senior year spring semester, of course, there is some panic. Although there's a lot of going on in my and my loved ones' worlds, I feel a sense of calm looking at my blessings.
This morning I had a kick a$$ meeting with my thesis adviser, Brooke. We looked at some of the prints I have made for thesis, cutting and composing different possible layouts for display. We discussed different paper types, framing/matting/sizing options, and significance between some of the objects I'm pairing with each other. All of this is SO exciting (and nerve-wrecking) for the solid reason it makes the work I'm making even more real! I'm not going to lie, the last two week before this may have just been the worst two weeks of my college career. I was struggling with the uncertainty of what I was doing with my work along with balancing with everyday life and its unpredictable qualities it holds. This week I decided to have the mindset no matter what pops up I need to get my stuff together. Do what I got to do to get the shot, make the grade, finish strong. With this mindset, there something else that crazy week has given me. This idea to look at it, whatever it is, look at is as a possibility, not uncertainty.
