  • I don't do well when someone is on me and when I have to update a lot, also bad with deadlines
  • Best when I have a work to present, physical mainly, a write-up, photographs, a portfolio, website, something of that nature to be judged.
  • I hate to be judged unless I feel completely prepared and then I welcome it.
  • I have a hard time finishing projects, and sometimes getting started up on them after initial stages of excitement.
  • To deal with the above bullet point, I suggest to myself the following:
    • Clear head- put on music, straighten desk for 2 minutes, write errant ideas down for later.
    • Set a timer to make a plan- goal broken up into small tasks

I believe in acknowledging and fostering those self-evident truths from the tender age of a child.

I will do my best not to harm other living creatures, to protect and advocate for those that don't have a voice or strength.

I vow to keep learning and nurture my curiosity and thirst for knowledge.

I will always explore and delight in my imagination, and will try to foster it in others.

I shall try to be as selfless as possible.

I must remember that my life here isn't just for me or my family unit, but can create change and embolden a goodness in the world.

I shall do no harm.

I shall respect others and myself.

I shall be brave and cautious.

I shall keep my body as my temple.
