It Always Seems Impossible Until It's Done


I'm going to keep this quote in mind as I go through this next quarter (which starts today, ah!). 

Fall quarter was the busiest I have EVER been in my entire life. I've never had that busy of a schedule with that much work.

I began last quarter thinking that I would have a busy, but manageable schedule. Until I talked to a senior who heard my class schedule and said something along the lines of, "Wait...all of those classes at once? Oh gosh...whoa....uh oh...wait really? Yikes! :-/ Well good luck!"...

From that point on, I realized the quarter would be rough. And since I go home every weekend to volunteer at my church an hour away, that takes up a lot of valuable homework time. So I was concerned that I wouldn't do as well as I wanted to. But when I got my grades before break, I found out that I got the best grades I've gotten so far in college! I was beyond thrilled. So, with that behind me, I know this quarter is going to be FINE. My schedule (time-wise) is a lot more manageable. I will have a lot of responsibilities still, but if I got through last quarter, I'll get through this one for sure. I got this.

So HERE GOES! My design classes this quarter include: Lighting Design, Sustainability and Materials, and the 2nd of 3 AutoCad classes. I'll be sure to keep you updated about those design classes, as well as try to catch you up to speed with some of my past projects that I did before blogging! 

Alsooo, I just started the student mentor program at my school, and was able to interview a professional interior designer in Seattle yesterday! I learned a lot from her and am so thankful that I had that opportunity. I'll try to tell you guys a little about that soon! Oh and also...I might have recently dyed my hair back to my natural brown color? Yep.

That had to be my most scattered blog post yet. I realize that.
 Forgive me.

Have a GREAT Wednesday everyone!

It's great that you made it through last quarter. It sounds like this quarter should be fun.

Sustainability and Materials sounds like an awesome course! I love green building, reclaimed spaces, etc. But the AutoCad courses also sound interesting to me (as a complete layman and total outsider).

Have a great time!

Good luck with your classes this term! I remember my sustainability class fondly and my lighting class not so fondly. I was never great with calculating foot candles!
