Not to take away from Elizabeth's "Wednesday Thoughts" or Brian's "Sesame Street Tuesdays" but I thought I'd share some thoughts with you, and they're not necessarily connected. Since my blog URL is actually "Robottuesdays," that seemed a fitting name for this blog post and possible some future ones. Without further ado...
I'm sitting in the Public Library downtown Grand Rapids as I write this and I still can't believe I'm here! I moved here on Saturday, and it still feels really weird. It's a beautiful city (for the most part), and I can basically bike everywhere I need to go (except church). Let's go, environment!!
I've spent the last few days unpacking and trying to get my apartment to look less like a storage facility and more like an actually lived-in apartment. It's exhausting!! I'm thinking about leaving the rest of the boxes and calling it art. Either that or just donating the rest of the my stuff to make life easier (and less cluttered).
Yesterday was my first day of classes at Kendall, and let me tell you, there's nothing like a grad program at an art school to make you feel like a terrible artist. Ha! (I have to laugh because I've been torn down so much in the last few days...) I have to do a lot of self-affirmations to keep myself going. "Katherine, you're a great artist. You can do it! Your style is just different from theirs..." Thankfully there are some other new students in the same boat as me, so we're banding together. We may start a club.
I don't have internet in my apartment yet...I have never felt so cut off from the world!! Thank heavens for the library.
Ok, it's time to see if I can get a library card. I've just got to wait until "Sabrina" is over. Thank heavens for YouTube, too. ;)
P.S. I think I'm going to keep this background for a bit longer. I can't help but like it a little! Plus, with no internet at my place, I don't look at it that often...
