Maturing as a designer
We have been occupying public spaces through the semester, having a great outcome in some locations and not so good in other, working around the city and RMIT was much easier than working in a suburb. For me this semester learning about design and how to become a better designer is important but understanding about life, property meanings, overseas society and behavior is just as important. I have been involving in all the activities that I can, living an Australian life, traveling and enjoying. Design development with low mistakes and achieving some goals, I have been working with
some interruptions or mistakes, mostly failing with timing. It has been a brand new experience for me studying in a different country with a different language and learning system.
