But then I started thinking about it. I asked myself if I could handle the workload and started taking an assessment of all of the requirements. I have a complete list of all the projects for each class that will be required. I have a complete list of all the homework. I have a complete list of the required reading. I have also been informed to expect an extra 10 hours of work outside the classroom for each class....OK so that is 40 hours of extra work. Add in the class time and that is another 14 hours. All together that is 54 hours minimum a week.
OMG.....54 hours. Eeek!! CRAP!! Ok....deep breath.
Excuse me for a minute while I get into my lotus pose and meditate.
Haha....and no I was not an Interior Designer. I was an Escrow Officer that managed a Title company branch in a very high end luxury real estate market. I did not have a badge or a gun......although in retrospect that certainly could have come in handy in a few situations.
Ok...so what does this have to do with design....and design school????
Well I realized that my previous career was the perfect foundation for not only school but for everything that will be needed in order to complete my schooling and become a credentialed Interior Designer. My career taught me many things. It taught me to think in the Abstract.... to manage my time...... to be exact and to be efficient. It taught me to communicate effectively. Well having said all this it sounds like I am perfectly prepared .....right?
I mean I can think in the Abstract so what is the problem?
Ok.........well then why can't I see that the above sculpture represents: SERENITY
Or that this sculpture embraces the concept of CORPORATE GREED
And of course isn't it obvious that this sculpture represents ORDER.
All of these photos are from my little excursion last week to Colorado. My husband Jeff and I were able to squeeze a quick little visit to the Denver Art Museum.
OK...OK..OK.... So to be fair I just came up with concepts about what these sculptures may represent. I mean no disrespect to the artist and I am sure that it is obvious to the artist and others what these sculptures represent.....BUT IT ISN'T ME........
I HAVE NO CLUE.
Hmmmmm..............It should prove to be a very interesting semester. Stay tuned.
