As we approach the ides of March, I realize now that all this hard work - re-establishing myself in Vancouver in the midst of a trans-continental move (from Sweden to Canada), moving my life to an apartment in the middle of Vancouver while starting grad project research, combating a herniated disc that left me on the floor of my new apartment for three weeks, fighting to catch up with midterms and end-of-semester presentations in order to stay in the game, and putting one foot in front of the other on this road to recovery and degree completion - will all culminate in a magnificent and exciting graduation exhibition show in May.
I'm so glad that I decided to forego the masters degree program in Sweden to complete my Bachelor of Design at Emily Carr, because without all the awesome challenges of these past eight months I would not be nearly as well prepared and ready to take on the next part of my design practice.
The studio at Emily Carr allows me to be surrounded by some of the most creative, driven, supportive, and talented designers and artists I have ever met, from all around the world. We are truly a diverse community of highly professional and motivated visionaries, both students and instructors alike.
Steady onward, dudes and dames. We've got a kickass show to celebrate with in May, and I can't wait to see what everyone has got to bring at the end of the semester.
