"We are all, everyone in this room, so fortunate."
Its always been a dream of mine and I’ve said it over and over again by now. its the same old story, so lets not dwell on that. I wanted to be a residential designer and I just finished my job shadow at a high end residential design firm. I shouldn’t feel this way, and yet I do. I don’t see myself in their shoes. not because I don’t love design, by far. but because I don’t want to think about door handles and making sure this one arm chair is too traditional or not. I want more. right now, working on my final project - I gotta say this is what I want. what I’ve always wanted. a clean slate, no holds bar project that pushes the boundaries of what we think is normal and what is creative. I am working on an entire condo development project. 45 thousand square feet of pure expression. this project has my stamp on every detail and anyone else would panic but I’ve embraced the enormity of my design strengths and fully pushed and continue to develop them to build a cohesive building. im impressing myself. its in moments like these that I can look back and say that ive changed through out this experience. its by far the most rewarding education I could have ever imagined for myself.
