It's the beginning of a new semester and I am quite excited. Watching the snow fall, I am caught between hoping for the day off and anticipating an exciting montage of classes and work. This semester, I have three on-campus jobs and two design jobs in addition to the usual freelance work. I am taking a typography course, an art history course (Enlightenment to Modernism), advanced Spanish, intermediate piano, and philosophy. Unfortunately, I have been so busy with school and work that I have neglected personal painting. My modeling career is steadily pushing forward. I now work at a print and design studio, gradually saving money for a planned trip abroad in 2017. Hopefully after I graduate I will go on a Grand Tour of my own, to study art, culture, and language.
