Sep '04 - Nov '06
i've just come out of my final presentation, very heavy.
everybody was nice, the criticism was great, by my work just did not cut it. i set myself a huge task, a task to be accomplished with skills that i did not have yet, and the learning curve was too steep.
my prototype failed to engage with its contest, and there were ideas that i could have easily developed which just did not come up. all of this was mixed with the lack of specific drawings illustrating the final product.
time was wasted learning new skills, trying to figure out stuff or just, you know, wasting time.
result: i just did not complete the task as i should have. i do not feel like i have let myself down actually, but rather happy (in a strange way) that i have a task ahead of me.
the idea is there, and so is the potential. now is just a matter of learning the skills which are still missing (technical, analitical, architectural) and completing the task.
i will try to do as much as possible in the 9 days left, but this is a job which will take most of the summer.
university is about learning right?
still, being shred to pieces kinda hurts!
