Monday- had a ton of difficulty hanging the show, had to take an image out. Dealt with it with a smile and moved happily on.
Tuesday- shot for media lab for a solid hour, turns out the sound didn’t work. Figured we could ask Margaret why and then use the open lab she said we’d have to re-shoot. Moved happily on.
Wednesday- apparently it’s a good choice to not tell your 130 class that you once again have other plans and won’t be there, come and hand out a thousand papers which you can’t talk about, and resort again to the lab techs for teaching your class. A little discouraged and already know the final will be a huge cluster. Dealt with it. Found out a very well loved girl I knew and some good friends were close with passed away.
Thursday- dealt with family issues. Nervous for crit which was prefaced with the notion that we were being too nice and ended up leaving in tears. Put a smile back on. Good friends and amazing boyfriend kept the smile on.
Am I being tested like forreal? And I’m still sitting here happy. Exhausted and almost defeated but I will not let anything knock me down. Just let me off easy, I’m clearly passing!
Like okay I know I broke down and whatever, but seriously I underestimated how genuinely sweet everyone (well…almost) is.
Thank you for getting me surprise starbucks, thank you for sitting with me while i was a gross hyperventilating mess, thank you for coming to give me a hug, thank you for coming out way after and seeing if I was okay, thank you for texting me, et cetera et cetera.
Like actually I am so glad I’m going to be stuck with the majority of you guys for the next two years, no matter how much I may bitch in the future.
Maybe it’s not a huge deal, but seriously thank you =)
Sorry for being such a girl but it needed to be said.
