Confidence and School

Communications Design has made me critical of every poster, advertisement, etc. that I've seen in the past few weeks. There's at least one poster I see everyday that makes me think to myself, "I can definitely do better than that." The thing is I've been being educated or brainwashed, whatever you want to call it, in the in's-and-out's of communication designs for about three months.

Three months and I'm a cocky know-it-all.

Then when it comes to class, I'm not confident at all about my own work. I think to myself, "Oh man...I wish I did this differently" or "Wow, her poster is a million times better than mine." Why can't I maintain that confidence in doing my own schoolwork?

Three days into a week-long break and I'm already thinking about schoolwork.

But then again, that may just be a byproduct of being up when everyone in my household is sleeping and I'm up-to-date in the shows I watch. Perhaps I should get some sleep, something I wish I could get during school days. But part of me wants to enjoy all this down time. I'm actually not as busy as I'm making myself sound right now. Since I procrastinate, I usually have a light work load Sundays-Wednesday afternoons. It's not until Wednesday nights-Friday mornings that I'm actually torturing myself with the sheer amount of work that needs to be done. But I've been handling it better these past two weeks. I can definitely feel like I have more room to breathe.

Feels good.
