Since I have started my journey at NCAD I have continuously failed. I failed my first year of college, and that failure has stayed with me until recently. Six weeks from my final submission, for my final year, I felt like I was going to fail again. I felt lost in my work. I was unsure how to move forward. I kept thinking I'm stuck in a dead end. It was only after accepting that I was failing that this stopped. I had to understand what failing actually meant. Not as an end but instead a continuation of the process. It allows for a new approach to be taken. Failing is something that won’t last forever. It’s something that I can look forward to.
