I had to turn in 8 total assignments in the past 4 days, three of which were 'shooting' assignments where I go out and take pictures for critique, and the other 5 assignments were discussion questions where I had to answer questions, and cite the references appropriately. This involves research, and above all else, time. The 'shooting' assignments take diligence, patience, and much like the discussion questions, time.
I am feeling a little overwhelmed at the moment, but, I seem to always feel the way at the beginning of a new class. It always takes me a little while to get acclamated with a new class and the professor's standards. This time, I think I am more on edge because I have two classes to get ready for and get used to, not to mention get used to two different professor's way of grading, analyzing; basically everything!
I just have to keep reminding myself that it takes time...
I also have to remind myself that just because I get a 95% or a 90% on an assignment, or a 'B' in the course, that does not make me a failure...
Above all else, I have to remind myself I am going back to school for a reason, and I'm extremely lucky to have found something I love to do.
It's easy to forget these things sometimes.
Happy Tuesday, and thanks for reading! :-)
