The past month has been extremely busy.
First, my 21st birthday happened! I had a great time with my friends, and it could not have been a better birthday.
Second, midterms happened, and so I was crushed with work for a good few weeks preparing for and getting through the actual critiques. The way the work flow seems to go is there is a steady amount of work and projects, then when midterms and finals come around, I have about three times as much work, and it’s all due in the span of 6 days usually. So getting behind on little things (such as this blog) are very easy to do.
Third, I have so many projects! I’m currently working on a book! It’s an archive of repurposed spaces in Chicago, I’ll talk about it more when it’s completed! (Mid Dec). I’m also going to be in a few shows, one being on December 13th! It’s a group of my peers that I get along with very well, friends and friends of friends, from all different departments. My friend Jose just moved into a new apartment which has a lot of gallery space, so we’re going to utilize the best we can, having shows every month. I’m also going to be in a show next spring through my Sophomore Seminar Class- not sure what’s going to be in it yet I just know it’s happening!
Fourth, I haven’t really said anything about this yet (that I recall), but I’m dating someone! His name is Matthew, and we’ve been seeing each other for a few months now. He’s pretty great, I must say. He does not go to SAIC, which is such a breath of fresh air.
I think that’s it! (All of my excuses I think:) )
Hope all is well!
Midterms are quickly approaching! Can’t believe we’re already a week into October. I have a few projects due fairly soon along with some papers. I’ll be updating more tomorrow I believe - after my first Etching Critique! My weekends haven’t been as event-packed as a few weeks ago, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t been fun! Classes are going really well and the weather is getting to be the temperature that I love. Bring on fall!
