I'm in an accredited DA school, only 1 month in but I'm starting to feel discouraged. Sometimes I feel like I'm not catching on as quickly as the other girls, and my confidence is really taking a nose-dive. Maybe I'm just still intimidated (plus I think sometimes I tend to over-think things), but I feel like I ask stupid questions and look totally clueless (deer in headlights), and already making silly mistakes while everyone else seems to jump right in and know what they're doing. I feel like our main instructor is beginning to think I'm the underdog... and I hate that feeling. The classes are just very fast-paced and I'm trying to come up with a better way of getting ahead of the game versus falling behind everyone else. I'm doing well when it comes to written work and exams, its just the hands-on stuff that is getting to me. There are just so many little details to keep up with. I don't plan on quitting or giving up at all, I just wonder if anyone out there might have some tips for me on how to survive this year of DA school?
