 In Thesis - Proposal

Boy, what a great lecture. I can’t believe how much she’s accomplished at her age. I liked this idea of play with her work. It reminds me a lot of what my mom used to say; if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.

My favorite pieces of advice from her:

  • Must have the confidence to fail
  • Persistence is key (good ideas take time to manifest)
  • Have a sense of humor
  • Always have motivation

While these definitely seem obvious, they are forgotten at times. I feel like I overanalyze success and it really just boils down to these ideas.

I also like the idea of being personal with work. A lot of the work I do is always to please to the brief/client. I never think about adding a piece of myself to it.

My favorite quote: Get off the computer and make shit.
