Design Star play along | episode three...

The episode three challenge on Design Star was to design a patio space using musical instruments as the inspiration. It took me a while to figure out what to write about this one, because the only thing I knew is that this without a doubt would have been the week I was sent home if I was really on the show.

There were certainly parts of the men's space that were not my favorite...

But frankly, if I had been on the show, I would have had a panic attack at the very mention of the challenge. And probably would have had a small seizure every time someone said "harmonious."

See, I love listening to music. But I have absolutely no musical talent. Yes, I know, they didn't have to play instruments, just use them as inspiration. But really, it's that bad.

When I was in college, I took an online music class that was, according to everyone I knew, "the easiest class ever." The second assignment was to listen to a musical piece and pick out the instruments playing and describe how they made me feel. I had to drop the class.

Seriously, I could hardly pick out any instruments and everything just made me feel nervous and panicked because I am just not good at that kind of thing. I knew then that my GPA [and mental health] were both going to suffer if I stayed in the class.

Anyways, when I heard this challenge on Design Star, my very first thought was how much of an idiot I would have looked like if I was on the show and couldn't even name the instruments. Ahhhh! I can't even pretend to play along and come up with things I would have done differently, since I know I really just would have freaked out. So, until the next episode, feel free to look back at my ideas for episodes one and two.
