I made this page last week in a particular fit of suckiness. I had a lot of plans for August. Plans to finish the new course for Classes Kara Made (yeah, the same one I’ve been sitting on all summer), books to read, projects to start, the usual. There were some behind-the-scenes stressors that really distracted and left me feeling out of control and sad. I’ve been feeling discouraged and inadequate. I just wish creativity were easier. Life were a little easier. Which are all normal feelings and not unique to the ebb and flow of the creative life (or life in general), but frustrating nonetheless.
School starts tomorrow which is I am actually really, really excited about. I am now a part-time student, so I am taking only 3 classes (a design studio course, web design, and design history). In addition to my two part time jobs at school, being on student council, and freelance, I know I’ll be kept plenty busy, but I am still a little bummed I’m not taking more classes. I really love art school and am going to be sad when it’s all done.
I don’t know. That’s where I’m at. I think a new schedule and new environment will help get me back into my groove.
