Far from telling me I was terrible and was going to get kicked out (as my dumb brain had convinced me was the only possible scenario), my supervisor said I had actually done plenty and that I was more than ready for the review, and that the majority of the stuff I wanted to have done but hadn't done was stuff I can't do until the programmer finishes coding the system (which could be months off). So, while I am still stressed and gloomy in general, I'm at least not feeling as awful as I was. Also, I got a cute cuddly Pikachu, and adding more Pokemon crap to my collection always lifts my mood.

The only thing that will take a lot of time is the storyboards and character illustrations. The storyboard designs have all been done and the outlines printed, so all that is left to do is paint them (not a difficult task, but it will be time consuming). I also need to redo my character sketches as the paper I used originally was cheap garbage, and as soon as I tried to paint them, the paper turned to mush. Then, once the coding is done for the system (which almost certainly won't happen before the review), I just have to upload all my image files and text into the modules. I also got new oil pastels, and new art supplies are always fun.
|Rex likes my new oil pastels, too.|
So, my main tasks for the immediate future:
-Write design science section of methodology chapter
Should all be doable, I think (I'm still going to stress, though).
