When I first started this program I remember thinking, "Wow, I'm going to graduate this program when I'm 31!" That sounded so old back then... but alas, here I am and... I don't feel a day older. I think my nephews keep me young. I'm pretty sure they think I'm their age.
It's hard to explain. I don't "feel" older but I know that I definitely am.
What I do know, is that I'm thankful for my family and friends- especially those who've stuck by me and have understood the madness that is design school...I always say, "We're not saving lives.. why is this is darn time consuming and stressful?!" For anyone out there thinking of going to design school-- it ain't no joke. Make sure you know what you're getting into and that this is for sure what you want.
I'm not bashing decorators by any means. Some classmates of mine might need the help of a decorator in the future because they have a hard time specifying finishes and colours. It's wrong to look down on decorators the way a lot of architects look down on interior designers. Oh man... am I bashing architects now? Can't we all just get along?! =)
Here's an image I came across a long time. I don't know who actually owns this image but if you do, let me know so I can give them credit!
I thought this was pretty funny... and pretty accurate.
Anyways, thank you God for my life...Although I feel like I've wasted most of my 31 years I have hope that the next 31+ years will be a different story.
