Make Doubtful and Have Work

Rejoice! I have emerged intact from my first semester of grad school. I’m currently into the thick of my second semester, and despite the now-standard  feelings of self-doubt and self-consciousness, I’ve begun making work that seems to be shifting in  a steady direction. Some underlying ‘grad-school’ themes that I’ve detected thus far: having the endurance to make work  while tolerating  feelings of uncertainty (“is this good enough, am I good enough” etc,  etc); riding out the swells of mini-disappointments and triumphs; relishing in the moments of genuine satisfaction of making something good before it is exposed  to the world!
