Student Takeaways
From a class discussion at Loyola University

"My main takeaway from this is that you can't be too hard on yourself. Productivity ≠ progress."


"A lot of my takeaways were wrapped up in the Creative Baggage Podcast Episode that I listened to before class as well. All of it was a really refreshing perspective on art, one that I really needed. Encouraging you to be kind to yourself and your art, having a balance between art and other interests, and acknowledging our insecurities and worries about our own careers without getting discouraged. I really appreciated that we were given space to share. I didn't because I often struggle to be vulnerable when it comes to my music struggles, but I was just happy to know the space to share was there."


"My main take away was to be kind and patient with yourself. Everyone is learning and trying their best. "
