Back to School

I’ve now successfully completed my first week of school.

It’s been more fun that I possibly thought it could be, but holy cow it’s ALOT of work. I spent nearly the whole weekend working on projects, and I saw Philip for about 6 hours total throughout the whole week (not including the weekend).

I can already tell it’s going to continue to stay busy, but honestly I’m okay with making some sacrifices because I forgot how much I missed being in a classroom, surrounded with people motivated the same way I am, and talented in the same ways I am.

It feels so good to be doing art.

Plus, over the weekend, on top of doing a lot of art, I got all my laundry and ironing done, I got lunches made by 9:30 pm last night, I got a little reading time in, and I even cleaned our bathroom.

I feel like I can really handle all of this. I’m feeling awesome.

    I’m glad you are enjoying school. Want to send some of that energy this way? lol

    What a great feeling – I’ve felt the same way about grad school. Yay for doing exactly what you want to be doing.

    Glad you’re liking it so much, Merrick! Sounds like you guys are both busy busy. I feel that way now (well, not during spring break, but you know what I mean), but I bet I’ll feel much more that way when we’re both working full-time jobs in Boston.

  4. Yay Merrick! I loved my art classes too… but seriously didn’t like all the work. People think art majors have it easy. But I would say it ranks up there as one of the most time-consuming majors!
