It has been a tough semester. Learning how to accomplish proper research, and doing my first Literature review made me question my decision to go back to Graduate School. But, knowing that I have accomplished what I thought was once impossible makes me appreciate not giving up. As a designer we will always be put into positions where we have to go beyond our comfort zone. If we aren’t getting frustrated, then we aren’t reaching far enough. As I write this, I still have to re-do my thesis for my argumentative paper. I think that I won’t be able to come up with something and blow it so close to the end. But then I realize I have done it before and I will do it again. It is this feeling I want to leave everyone with. Knowing that things are going to be difficult is only part of Grad school, the rest is knowing how you will handle yourself when presented with a challenge. It is how you react that will determine whether you will become a master or just another designer.
