I’m not dead, really!

August 26, 2011 § 1 Comment

August 3?!?! I’m kind of disappointed in myself right now, I think that’s the longest I’ve abandoned this little project! It’s been a bit hard for me to get much done in the way of crafting things this summer which is also honestly really disappointing. I’ve been in a bit of a mood in general because I have all these ideas of things, but no time to see them through! Last summer I had all the joys of being unemployed & having parents who didn’t mind my living in their house & eating their foods for the low low cost of $0! This summer I am kind of freaking out about being really close to being done with school forever, I have a job, I just finished an internship, and it looks like I’m starting my next one a bit sooner than I thought! Another huge difference is that last summer I had just wrapped up a bunch of art classes that really had my brain in that kind of mode. I really miss working in a studio a lot & getting to chat “art” type stuff with other people.

I absolutely love the work I’ve done during my internship & even though that plus my actual job really took up a lot of the past ten weeks of my life, I feel great about it! I certainly feel more confident in pursuing the career I’ve chosen. It did kind of leave me in a state where upon returning home, all I really wanted to do was this:

But hey, it was still really rewarding! I am really nervous & excited about being almost done with school. Assuming I don’t blow the portfolio thing, I’ll be done next June. Forever! It’s kind of scary since I’ve been in school nonstop since kindergarten through grad school. How do I not be a student? How do I accept a normal calendar year instead of an academic calendar? I have no clue! It’s also incredibly exciting! I am finding myself again in the position where I have no idea what I’ll be doing or where I’ll be a year from now. The end of my education means a whole bunch of possibilities are open!

Anyway, I’m trying not to beat myself up over being slow at finishing up my projects. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to post as frequently here as I did in the past, but there will be some stuff coming soon!
