Diary Entry - Poly week two

Hey lovelies, and so second week of poly had finally came into an end.. And of which, I do came to realised that things around here in the design school are a lot more different than I'd expect it to be. In the sense that things are way more lively and flexi. There's no like you'll be tested on Chapter xx next Tuesday and the default thing to do to ace it is to mug the night before or so. No, it's not like this at all. It's a lot more of I'm given an assignment and it's up to my own creativity along side with some guidelines to come up with either an idea that will get me an A or an idea that will fail me.

And given that it's only the second week of poly, shouldn't my workload be just as light as the other freshies in School of Business etc.? Well, apparently not! D: Of course, the assignments given to us are nothing in comparison with what's awaiting for us in the near future but honestly, it's a little too much for me to handle. Having almost zero knowledge about art, I've struggled during lessons & assignments that required drawing/sketching or creativity. Of course, I'm not making my lack of knowledge in art which leads to a lack of creativity as an excuse as to why I am struggling during these lessons and assignments. I do agree to a great extent that creativity can be found/discovered within/by anyone despite not having knowledge about art. But in a way, having not being in touch with art has put me in a slight disadvantage 'cause I do take a little longer to come up with ideas or improvise from inspirations. Nonetheless, of course, I will do something about it and hopefully, I'll be adaptive to the way things work in a design school.

So to speak, I've learnt a few things:

1. Don't even think about procrastinating! DON'T! Regretfully speaking from experience, although it's just the second week of poly, procrastination leads to piles of assignments awaiting you! So, JUST DON'T PROCRASTINATE!
2. PLAN YOUR TIMING WELL! If you plan to have dinner at 6pm and plan to end it at 7pm, then MAKE SURE YOU END IT AT 7PM! Or not, you'll just completely have NO TIME to finish up your assignments that are due next day.
3. Which brings me to, DON'T DO LAST MIN WORK! Especially if it has got to do with drawing/sketching~ And as for myself, I really can't chiong(rush) drawings or sketches within a night!! D:
4. Don't know anything, ASK! Just ask only. It's better to clear your doubts then to be left blur & clueless about what is going on!

These four points are definitely something that I have to take note of, period. And in short,

1. No procrastinating 2. Plan my day and actually stick to it 3. No last min work 4. Ask when in doubt

But on a brighter note, did I mention that the food in my poly is cheap? Haahahhah. Oh welly, here comes the picturessss~ ;)

Andddd that does it for my second week in poly! More to come, I guess. :) Oh right! I might not be able to update my third week of poly promptly next Sun cause I'll be attending a camp! But of course, I'd try to update the next day! Heheh. Till then, love ya all and take care!!
