So I have to present 2 major project problems tomorrow, on which I’ll be working for an year, and I have to give 2 very structured presentations tomorrow regarding which I am in a total mess because I don’t have the user statistics or surveys to justify the need. I got my foot corn removed th past Saturday and due to the stitches I am having too much trouble in even walking. Of course I should have done all this long before. I wasn’t even able to enjoy my best friend’s wedding!
I am back
so what all have I been up to all this time:
tasted some success finally. cleared CEED(Common Entrance Exam for Design). got a call from all the institutes where I applied so far. after getting rejected by IIT-Bombay for both Mobility and Vehicle design(due to studio test), and Animation & Film design(due to the interview), the next stop was IISc(Indian Institute of design) Bangalore, which is also known as Tata institute. the studio test got screwed here because of the engineering questions regarding which I had no idea. I had presumed all along that only design based problem solving and aptitude questions would be asked. then again, the interview went well enough and after the magnitude of the instutute’s reputation sunk in, I wasn’t expecting anything from them, because if a lesser reputed than this IIT-B had rejected me, then there was no question of me beig taken by IISc for Product Design and engineering masters degree. again, I was wrong. on the evening of 28th April, they had mailed the successful students the offer letters. I was in a volvo bus back to Delhi from Ahmedabad, after having royally screwed my chances of getting selected at the reputed National Institute of Design’s Animation and Film Design Diploma program, in the interview again :P then again, IISc was a secret desire for all the extra things I thought I’d learn there. came home, vomited out my experiences to my dad, and then checked the mail. couldn’t believe my eyes initially. read it thrice and only then started informing my near and dear ones. :)
and since then, I haven’t sketched anything. that sucks. it’s hard to kill time. I’ll try to murder it here because I leave for Bangalore only on 25th July.
I know no one’s reading this, but I feel like thanking all the awesome designers, known and unknown, friends and starngers around the world, whose creations have awed me, and inspired me to become one. I hope I perform well there and get a good job say in Tata motors or something :P ha!
I’ll keep posting random shit here. ;)
