If I didn’t pay enough attention, I can be very easily anxious. I have to settle down and ask myself what is my real problem at this moment. And often, if not always, that problem doesn’t have any reason to make me actually anxious.

Thank you Seven years in Tibet (and Brad Pitt).
So when Marc ask who isn’t stressed by this year, I raise my hand, but when I see no one was raising their hands, I lowered it. It’s just a matter of perspective. Of course, there will be some time where pressure will be too high and I will be stressed out and push my self, but most of the time I try not to be anxious because life goes on. I’m not saying you don’t have to take stuff seriously but, you have to do what’s important for you, and often you don’t have the same priorities than everyone.
So you can ask yourself where you really belong? I don’t have the answer yet because I always have that impression I don’t have same goals than peoples.
It’s not being nihilistic, because, things at SCA are interesting and everyone is agreed for that. This school succeed to bring many different people together, on the same ship for a year (well, actually a semester for me, because I’m a « soup de poub student ») and that’s her first victory.
So how do you do to work in team when everyone has his own characters, how do you manage so many different perspectives, how do you create a synergy, how do you teach their brains to « think outside of the box » when you make look people in the same direction: agencies and « ad life ».
I’m curious to see how things will evolve. For now, trying to make you a place in here can be hard when all of us want to show their best parts, how creative we are.
But a great thing that I already learned is: make it simple!
Also, I thought I had a great English. But not at all, I have that impression everyone is speaking so fast. I’m actually not fluent at all and its a pity because I want to understand why everyone is laughing at a joke, but I don’t get it. It’s even harder for me to write SCABs. IFrenchch I can make a really great essay, with good and elegant sentences, and metaphor. In english its just a big mess of my thought about different subject. But hey ! no pressure, try my best and it will be ok. But what’s the right position between « ok no pressure and it will be fine » and « push yourself, make it better, reach the perfection »
