As I enter the last two weeks of college, I am both excited and scared. I’m excited to (finally!) be done cramming for exams, classes, and assignments. I’m curious to see how my education will come into play as I begin a career as a scientist. Quite frankly, I can’t wait to see how my life will play out. However, around all of this excitement comes a lot of fear.
What if I don’t like what I’m doing? What if I’m not successful?
In fact, the thoughts that seem to currently be surrounding my capstone project seem to mimic my feelings about the next steps in my life.
There are parts of my project that I adore, but there are also the parts that I still find myself doubting.
I’m choosing to get excited about my incorporation of media, my color scheme, and my layout. While these greatly contribute to a project’s success, it is truly the content/project at hand. Similarly, I’m looking forward to finding an apartment, making new friends, and living an “adult” life. I’m focused on the superfluous things. How can I dive deeper?
How can I feel confident and complete with my writing? How can I address and confront the issues that lay in the portion of my project that actually possesses content? How do I know when I’m ready to turn it in and be proud of what I achieved? How do you know that a project is done?
