    It's the Final Countdown *enter Europe*

    Sorry to be so silent! Life has been a roller coaster going 500mph.

    Here I am in the last 10 days of my semester at Taubman College. I can't believe how time has flown, with two years down and one to go. There have been countless experiences, learned moments, new friends made, and brain fried.

    With the end of the semester comes pondering on where I will end up for the summer, what firm will I be working for, what grades will I get, can I take another year?? But all in good hearts, I feel as though I have grown and matured as both a designer and a person. I have acquired new skills and assets I couldn't image I would have a year ago.

    I have come to love and be amazed by new professors I had never met and loath those I had known to the point I would never recommend taking them again This is the most trying year I have ever had, between two masters, 5 classes a semester, constant travel, and family health concerns, but in all I am almost there. Home base is coming up, and the ball is out of the park (almost)! 

    I've learned whole new theories, questioned my own realities, reflected on what I thought was unwavering truths, and designing a project that could be shown in public at an Ivy University. I can barely keep up with whats happening (or changing) next!

    When this is all done, its time for a good drink, a great meal, and with my closest friends. 

    May you all be happy, healthy, and well rested!
