I’ve taken a leave of absence from studies, taking the term off. I’m discovering new passions and fostering a renewed attitude toward artistic and professional practice. I’ll be back to school in the Summer 2010, but for now, I need to do this.
The last two years have been great! It’s about time I take a minute to think about all that has transpired in this new life that I’ve made for myself. I’m finding it hard to sleep still and spending a lot of time at home reading and researching online. I need to get out more, even if it was just to read. I’m wondering now if the Metro goes downtown so that I can read at the library. But then again, the library at school doesn’t seem like a bad idea either. I think I might find myself in there an awful lot this term.
I’m thinking about portfolio pieces already. Trying to refine what I see and begin to craft the final ideas and final pieces. So, I’m working! And I’m happy. These last two years of school have not been easy, but I can say that it has all been worth it so far.
I’m really looking forward to running on Tuesday and the continued training for the half-marathon. Feel pretty good about it. I’m already pushing 9 miles no sweat if you can believe it!
Of course, missing friends, family, and taking the time to sort out feelings. But with anything they’re all people to count on who will support and critique my decisions to really get to the bottom of things. I can only love them for that!
