Being able to have an open forum to talk to my (now past) instructors was one of the most humbling and enlightening experiences I have ever been a part of. These are professionals in every sense of the word and they have been around to help at any moment for the current crop of graduating web design and development students.
When our program director took the time to share some insightful juxtaposition to us, it became apparent that this could not be a more fitting end to our time at Full Sail. I can not imagine that in many other settings you are allowed meaningful time to voice your disconcertions to people that not only matter, but can assert change based in agreement (or otherwise) with your feedback.
As it is undoubtably very easy to heel to the ability to fill your heart with passion at a stage such as graduating college, nothing I feel right now will be taken at just face value. It will all be constantly analyzed and found for patterns. After all, this is what digs at the core of us.
Most things can be broken down to fundamentals and fortunately this is what we have been cultivated to become. Young professionals with a strong basis of understanding programming and design, conjoined with confidence to never head on our current pace of learning.
Small failures that are used to pivot with ease aid you in many aspects, but forward movement is a daily battle that I for one, intend on winning.
