I don’t know if going out is all my scene anymore. For some reason I just end up getting extremely sad.
It’s been awhile since I’ve really truly posted anything aside from pictures of art and cute kittens. Sorry for abandoning you internet.
I have just moved into my dorm room and yesterday was my first day of my junior year of college. I have a really good feeling about this year and I am only hoping for the best. I really hope to grow as an artist and young woman and to make fantastic grades. I don’t know if I’m going to go ahead and try to go through recruitment this year. I’d really love to but I am scared to go in as a junior. I also am hoping to make some new friends and strengthen the friendships that I do have. Of course, I also am feeling really good about my relationship with David and I hope that we can grow as a couple this upcoming year (I can’t believe that we are going onto a year).
I’m taking Ceramics: Wheel Forming, my junior painting seminar, Racquetball, and Governmental & Non-Profit Accounting. My parents are pretty upset that I am not taking another ‘academic’ class but I don’t think they understand how difficult and time consuming my art classes are going to be. To make them happy though I should sign up for another class this semester..
I’m learning that being an art major is just as hard as being a biology or math major, but in a different way. Being creatively challenged and being deliberately forced to step outside of your comfort zone is quite possibly one of the hardest things I have ever done. As I type this I am still uneasy about my seminar class yesterday. I don’t have much confidence as a painter sometimes. I’m slow and I don’t work as quickly as other students. I take awhile to develop ideas and often my mind is all over the place. I have faith in my professor when she says that we are all going to be translating our own ideas into contemporary art, but as of right now the idea seems unfathomable to me. I don’t even know what I could possibly paint. I am excited though to get back into the studio, start building canvases and paint them!
I’m going to try to post on tumblr more this semester and hopefully include some pictures of my art. Stay tuned.
