Four weeks to go and every class has a major project due:
- 4,000 character essay in Japanese on the history of japanese youth culture and fashion
- video sketch of a new product in Interaction Design
- brochure for a client project in Document Design
- that thing I’m working on for my Master’s studio that I’ll post about when it’s finished
I basically don’t have free time. Twice in the past couple of weeks I’ve gone out with friends and had fun, but the next morning I find myself thinking, “I probably could have used that time more wisely”. On the other hand, I need the occasional break so I can catch my breath and think about something other than sketching, storyboarding, and writing code.
Other students are looking forward to winter break so they can go home and spend time with their families and travel, I’m thinking about mine in terms of simply catching up on day-to-day life, seeing my friends, updating my portfolio, making some art, and generally doing things of my own choosing.
