So, as I expected, I'm really loving Design Studio, the Fundamentals of Design class . . . while I am definitely learning so much interesting information and about what I've known all along, that interior design is so much about psychology and how our homes/rooms make us feel, I am more a hands-on person, not a lecture person (is anyone a lecture person?). As part of taking these classes, I felt the need to transform my former craft room into a design room. I haven't been crafting lately, so this was a perfect time for this transition. It's so cool and affirming when timing seems to line up perfectly like that. This is turning the page to start a new chapter for sure! We had to purchase quite a long list of supplies for the class and I also purchased a portable drafting board to work on since I can't hang out on campus using their drafting tables. I was like a kid in a candy store, walking through the art store ticking items off my list. I love the drafting board I picked out (and was thankful that I took time really thinking out what I wanted to purchase for this) as it is very sturdy and portable (which ended up being such a good thing last night for I had to completely redo my homework that took me 3 hours to complete after I realized I had added up my room measurements incorrectly and couldn't fit the required furniture into the room. By that time, it was 10 at night and I wanted to be upstairs with the company of the TV, so just moved my operations upstairs and completed the work without a problem. OY VEY!).
|Due to my life-long love of office supplies, having to purchase these tools of the design trade just about gave me hives!|
If any of you are considering heading back to school, whether it is to complete an unfinished degree, to start a new career or to further an existing career, I HIGHLY recommend it. It's hard work to be sure, but so very rewarding and life giving!
