During this week’s discussion, it became apparent to me that many students in our group share a common struggle when it comes to creativity: the fear of appropriating others’ work. It was nice to discuss this and learn about each person’s unique way of handling this fear. As we shared our experiences, I came to understand that realizing the extent to which existing ideas are influenced by previous work can bring a sense of peace when dealing with this issue.
Despite a recent bike accident, I was able to complete this week’s assignments, albeit with a delay. While it was not the ideal situation, I am grateful to have been able to accomplish this task and hope to fully recover soon so that I can return to work with more energy.
In reflecting on this experience, I am reminded of the importance of perseverance and adaptability. Even when faced with unexpected challenges or setbacks, it is possible to find ways to move forward and complete our tasks. This is a valuable lesson that I will carry with me as I continue my studies and pursue my goals.
