Can I just say this school thing is harder than I thought? It's odd that learning about skills to be creative can completely stifle your ability to create. The pressure of a deadline, looking at the (far superior) skills of others, professors who have very different tastes and aesthetics from your own, the lack of time to dream or think or wind down. I have to keep reminding myself to be true to myself, but to keep an open mind. I wonder if I have bitten off more than I can chew. And speaking of that, I think I'm gaining weight from hours and hours sitting on my hiney in front of the computer, so I need to work in some exercise time. And quit eating at odd hours and grabbing junk. *sigh*
This week I was thisclose to deciding to quit blogging. There, I said it. But I have decided to try to get through the dry spell. We'll see how that goes. How do you know when it is time to let go of something that has been such a great part of your life? Maybe when the big ball of guilt over not giving it the time it deserves, or that you want to give it, gets too heavy to carry.
Happier news? I got an A in my Advertising class.
