I was a poor poor art student when I decided to start a blog documenting the process of my paintings, photography, drawings and journaling. Now a recent art grad, not much has changed other than the label and maybe a change of scenery.

did you know

my ongoing fascination with people still continues on.
i always find it interesting that you never know someone
truly until they actually tell you their story. you can make
all the stereotypical judgements and assumptions you want,
but someone's words make everything concrete.

the other day during class i had an opportunity to learn of what
some people wanted to do after school. and i found it eye opening
that i had a lot in common with individuals.
some thought about teaching or some didn't want to at all.
most wanted to travel, or just figure out why they are
who they are. i got the feeling each one of us wants make a difference,
and i always thought i was the only one. i saw that maybe they too are struggling
with what lies ahead, and wondering what place there will be for them
out in real world.

while i want to be a unique individual,
it's comforting to know i'm not the only one puzzled when someone asks
"so what do you want to do after school?" we're supposed to know the answers now
but maybe that just takes all the fun out of it.
perhaps there is hope for us.

  1. Kiley,
    Thanks for this post. I concur with you as to the desire to be "unique," and at the same time I enjoy real connections with other people--something you're bound to experience in a class full of other art students.
