It’s been a week since my first year of grad school has ended, and I’m still trying to make sense of what just happened. It’s definitely been a roller coaster ride, and probably the hardest I’ve worked in my entire life. (This is saying something, because there was a time not so long ago when I had 2 degrees to simultaneously fulfill + a job.) But what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger! Or at least craftier with your time management.
Perhaps one way of making sense of all the people I’ve met, texts I’ve perused, lectures I’ve absorbed, things I’ve made & helped make, and ideas I’ve tinkered with is to line them up by themes. So let’s see… what are some of the most memorable themes of my first year at SVA IxD?
