You know what?.....

I think I AM going to graduate school after all.

Yesterday Jon and I took my mom to NYC and we went to the Met to look at some modern art. I took my modern art class in summer 2005 and I was sure that I'd forgotten everything, but a lot of it came back to me! I was worried my memory would suck, but I surprised myself. And I had a blast analyzing the art... it made me really miss undergrad school, where I got to learn about it every day. Museum-going is so much more fun when you've already learned about a particular artist, piece, or period... it's like you have a backstage pass into the artist's mindset or the historical period.

I don't know WHEN I'm going back to school... but I've made up my mind that I WILL go back. I really miss school... I know I'm a huge art history nerd, but I loved it. :) I have no idea what period I'd do though... I really enjoy art in situ (where it was originally located) and cool architecture so I'm leaning towards the British Isles circa the Middle Ages or the Renaissance. But we shall see!

A new soapie (made a few days ago, but I forgot to post it):



It smells like mango and cream... very yummy! Tonight I think we're going to make some salt bars... it's been a while so I hope it goes well!

My resolution is to update this blog as often as possible, so check back soon! :)

Do go to grad school! I am so glad I did. I'm in a competitive field (journalism) and it kept me ahead of the pack when I was job hunting.

It took me three years to decide, but I'm heading back to grad school in the fall, and I'm really happy with the decision so far.
Enjoy the search!
