Today did not aPEASe me
Hehehe, are you sick of my puns yet?
I finally got to talk to the guest critiques after a four hour wait. I was beginning to get a bit stuck in my design and needed to talk to someone with practicality and a realistic sense of design.
Someone got bored
And some other ones were relaxed
After that talk we had another guest come in to discuss her professional career. She finished with our program, worked in a couple of firms, and opened her own business with her husband in five years. Amazing.
One thing that really resonated from her was having the ability to take criticism and learning to improve from it.
I honestly have such a difficult time hearing criticism and learning to not take it personally. It has always been a struggle in life but of course it gets better with more encounters. I think I can truly consider myself grown up when I can finally learn to learn.
