Am I good at this at all??

Thursday, April 17, 2008

Lately I've been dealing with confidence issues. Did I pick the right major? Why did I even pick Interior Design? Why didn't I choose Graphic Design? After all, I'm fascinated with advertising.... Oh yeah, because I didn't want to end up sitting in front of a computer all day.
But that's what I've been doing lately for Interior Design. Hours and hours. And hours sitting at my computer working on AutoCAD.
I guess most students go through this soul searching after the first Interior Design studio class. That's when most students drop out or change majors. Maybe I just reached this point a little late. It's more than a little too late. I'm stuck in this major, and I'm not ever sure I'm good at Interior Design!
Yesterday before our Lobby presentation, another girl showed me one of her elevations. She said she went "a little overboard." OMG! A little overboard! She spent over an hour just drawing a piece of art work (that was about 1/2" x 1/2") on one of her walls. I didn't draw ANY art work on my elevation walls and here she spent an hour just drawing one teeny, tiny piece! And I thought I was a perfectionist.
Situations like that are why I question myself. Especially today. We recently had a student competition, and today all the projects were shown, and the winners were announced. I received Honorable Mention for my Wind and Water Spa in the Commercial Category. I entered a project in each category, and I admit, I thought I would place higher. I'm not trying to be a poor loser, but it made me realize how talented this group is and how untalented I feel. I would never spend an hour drawing a detailed piece of art work on a tiny elevation or spend 18 hours on one rendering when I have three others to do as well. Maybe I'm not enough of a perfectionist to be an Interior Design major.
