With special guest, Mickey Mouse! (I have gotten far too attached to my Mickey plush in three months.)
So I've noticed my updates are progressively getting less frequent. I think, with as often as I complain of boredom, this needs to change immediately.
As of January 2nd, this poor college student is living and working an internship in New York City with the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers. For those of you who haven't heard, Bennington College, my college, requires its students to do this once a year after New Years.
New York City is an amazing experience so far. Having so much at my fingertips, sucking at my wallet, is an experience I haven't had in some time. I've decided I will probably end up living in or outside a major city after college as a result of the two weeks I've been here so far. Five years in rural Tennessee cannot even compare with this happiness.
As far as school goes, I'm off of Academic Concern! Yaaaaay! I received two B+'s, an A-, and an A+ in my classes from last term and have never been so happy with my academic standing. After last spring's D in Shakespeare, my B+ in Herman Melville gives me the confidence to keep striving as a potential Literature major.
Now for the stuff that actually pertains to this website! Reading RJ's masterpiece, the Wheel of Time series, has been fueling inspiration to write since... well, a while ago. Since I have no assigned homework until the 21st of February, I've been starting to write my story again, from the beginning. This time, I think I will keep with it, as I'm tired of it collecting dust. As for art, I've been drawing every so often lately and I'm proud to say that I am finally settling into a technique and style that is working well for me. The new stuff won't be up until I return to school unfortunately, so those of you sitting on the edge of your seats in wait, get a life.
