Today was honestly just... strange. I had my midterm assessment (finally), and it was nothing to write home about. Basically, it was fine, minus the "one-trick pony" comment--which was irrelevant. They told me they would like me to try more than one approach to my projects, which is funny because professors back home told me I need to be more focused. How about I just... make stuff, and it'll be all cool, mmk?
On the whole I'm bummin' a bit. I'm quite disappointed in ECA as an art college--tutors, curriculum, critique, resources. A bit of a shamble really. I'm not progressing as a designer at all here. Stagnant pond water.
The people, however, are smashing.
It's a bit frustrating sometimes though--being the exchange student. It's a constant line of wanting to feel at home and not wanting to get too attached. I'm impatient with relationships, and I'm always pushing. I get really frustrated when I want things I can't have. You can't win over everyone, and you certainly can't force people to want to get to know you. Some people get where I'm coming from, but for others, perhaps I'm a bit too forward for their liking?
Glasgow tomorrow. Should be good.
