This Saturday was my sister's wedding---after an unbelievable lead up (accidental overdose, broken limbs, these are seperate guests! also everyone is OKAY! the overdose was a mistake of blood pressure pills with sleep ones...) it went wonderfully. But on top of that, and I bit more exciting for me, was that I was offered to interview at all three programs to which I applied (NYU, Winterthur and Buffalo)! I am nervous, and will be carefully putting together my portfolio and presentation in the next few weeks.
I am not expecting to be accepted, lots of people don't the first time, and with the increasing popularity of conservation both in popular culture and in the arts community, more and more people are recognizing it as a career choice...so that means more competition. Ultimately, as my mom always tells me, I entered with low expectations but high aspirations. My goal is always to be accepted, but my realistic goal in this, my first time applying, was to be offered interviews. I achieved my realistic goal. Now it's time to shoot for the stars, but with a parachute attached.
And off I go.
