Well here we are folks, the last entry of the year! This year has gone fairly quick, it feels like it was 30 degrees out three weeks ago, and now it’s in the 80s, (which makes it a bit more difficult to inside all day when it’s so nice out) but it is time for the final push of the semester.
For some of us here at SIU next week begins final presentation week for all the Undergrads with us grad giving our final presentations the following week. After that is a decently long break that will be greatly needed. Relax, going on vacation for a week, and hopefully getting some work done before the final semester of grad school starts in June. The end is within reach!
I really don’t know what else to write, so if I can leave one piece of advice, through all my coherent and sometimes incoherent ramblings over the last year, for everyone mainly those who are just starting, it would be to stay with it. Through all the late nights and all nighters, the weekends spent sitting in studio, for me to be this close to being done, it really is worth it. To finally be able to go finish up IDP hours and start taking the licensing exams, all the things I’ve been through the last 5-6 years is starting to come together and be worth something. I wish everyone good luck, It’s been sort of fun writing these throughout the year… I’m out.
