thank goodness for holidays.

designing is hard. it pushes your mind way outside what it's used to and it will chew into your sleeping hours. it's emotionally draining, too, when you wonder if your idea is even good enough to make the cut. but i made it to the end of the semester. architecture is challenging, and many people don't make it.
i want to be one of the ones that does. 

but thank goodness for holidays! and for mothers who will feed you as you're drawing and bring you cups of tea and heatpacks at 1 in the morning when your throat is sore and neck is frozen stiff. 
i'm so excited to get my camera out again and to capture the joys of this break.
it's great to be back in the land of the living :)

nearly there.

This morning I presented a graphic design pitch worth 80% of my subject grade...and it felt awesome! Because now I've completed one subject, and have 3 to go, then it's end of semester. I've actually written a list of things I wish to do in the holidays. Most things have been added at 1 or 2 o'clock in the mornings to keep me sane as I'm up to my ears in work... Good news is that its all beginning to wrap up, and things are looking peachy.
