How to tell if your work sucks or not (well if you have to ask then something’s not right)
Step 1: Ask someone, whom you respect and whose’s opinion matters, what they think of your work.
If their first reaction isn’t “Ohmigosh that is so amazing!!! I love it”…then you know it needs some work.
However, there is a right and a wrong to that policy of mine.
Ask someone who is brutally honest and doesn’t give a shit what you feel. They are golden.
Asking a peer will result in one of two responses: Fix this, fix that, and ohh but I like that! Or they will stare at it and question why they couldn’t whip something like that up in the first place. Then reply meekly, it’s ok.
I am finding it’s sometimes hard to make friends with people in your same major, because in the grand scheme of things, they are my competition. While I thrive off of that, pushing myself to be better than everyone else, it doesn’t really garner a whole lot of trust.
Don’t get me wrong, I have some of the greatest friends I could hope for, but are there mind games and jealous stares from both parties…you better believe it.
