Let's add a little fun to the ARE process already!
A wise Yogi once said, "A relaxed mind is a creative mind." Ok, so I read the quote attached to one of my Yogi Tea bags...anyway the point is, it is about time the whole ARE process and prep materials are brought up to relevance for a whole new generation of designers. These podcasts have a refreshing "lightness" and humor to them which is a great break from the grind of studying for the exams. It is great just to kickback and listen to others talk about their experiences with the process. I appreciate that there is a good balance of structure, coupled with a looseness that makes the Podcasts fun to listen to. I think David, Eric, and Aubrey are on to something here and I applaud their efforts and all the hard work that must go in to the coordination of all of this. Looking forward to future podcasts.
So far so good
Interesting, humorous. Keeping me upbeat during this time as I'm preparing to take the exam which is really half the battle. Thanks!
Filling the void
I need as much help as I can get and do not have access to classes. I enjoy podcasts and will keep listening. Keep the podcasts coming.
