i need to work on not letting things get to me.
i’ve been having an intense couple of days at uni. i think most of my problems come from having always been that kid at school who ‘does art’. i think in a way you just take it for granted that you can do something that a lot of other people can’t, and then the crushing moment comes when you step into a class of super talented people, all of whom were also ‘that’ kid at school and who are all various shades of Better Than You.
it mostly becomes an issue with 3D animation. i knew i’d have a problem with it, this should not be coming as a great surprise to me, but just knowing that i really am as bad at it as i thought and that almost everybody else in the course is a 3D rather than 2D animator is a pretty horrible feeling.
i think i need to stop comparing myself to others, and also to keep my chin up and focused on my goals. i didn’t go into this course to become a 3D animator, and one person cannot be totally magnificent at every thing they touch.
luckily today despite my being a small gloomy raincloud, jocelyn and i spent the afternoon exploring dymocks and finding all of my childhood artistic inspirations in my favourite children’s books, and then getting our drawing assignment out of the way in starbucks for a few hours. maybe i’ll make dymocks my new tiffany’s and go there when i’m in a mood.
i hope your day verged on splendid.
