So it’s April. And that means a few things. First, my last semester as an undergraduate is almost over. Second, I have to start packing my stuff to bring back home (ugh). And third, I am having serious creativity regrets about my capstone project.
I mean, my capstone project is cool, don’t get me wrong. I’ve recently hit a productive patch where I’m working on it at every free opportunity I get because I’m so excited about how far I’ve come from the beginning of the semester. But, also, it could have been like a short video, or a podcast, or a video documentary where I would get to use those more classic creative skills of sound and editing and camera angles and stuff! I guess I’m just wishing I had pushed my medium just a little bit harder and had picked a different, more interactive media than a written article.
And that’s fair, right? I mean, the grass is always greener on the other side. While I’m asking my friends to read over my work for spelling errors, others are worried about editing sound bites and getting the *perfect* contrast on their vlog. I really should count my blessings. But as I hear and get glimpses of other peoples’ projects, I can’t help but wonder if I could have done something just a little cooler!
And yes, I know each project is cool and unique in its own way, and I’ve put in a ton of work and that makes my project uniquely cool to me. But the things that everyone else is doing are just awesome and so creative!
So, as this comes to a close, I’ll just summarize by saying that I’m so impressed with everyone’s work and creativity. And I can’t believe just how different everyone’s projects are turning out to be!
