    You know that feeling you get when you’re just ready to call the whole thing off and start over? I get that feeling all the time. In the dichotomy of fight or flight responses, I would say my preferable option is neither. I like to just ignore things and hope they go away. But recently, I chose a very different path. Let me back up a bit: Although I have a pretty creative job, I’ve never been entirely happy with its trajectory.  I never imagined myself in a corporate career, yet here I sit, at my corporate desk, typing my corporate emails. No, this just couldn’t be. So one day, I just decided it wouldn’t be and I applied for grad school. And I got in.

    At the beginning of June, I’m leaving my job and going back to school to get my MFA. I have absolutely no idea what my life will look like in three months and that’s thrilling, terrifying and awesome. There is such immense freedom and happiness to be found at the other die of “what if”.

    All this change seems like a good time to hit the reset button on this old blog as well. Writing a blog is such an odd thing because it feels like sharing, but it’s often just navel-gazing. It’s shouting out into the void without knowing if you will hear a response or just your own echo. At some point you have to decide whether it’s worth it or not, regardless of who’s paying attention. Says the girl in her mid (ok fine, late) ‘30s going back to school to make conceptual art.  Here’s to a 2015 full of surprises.

      Yay…fabulous…I wish you all the best…I did the same at 55, resigned from a high profile job and I am now in my third year of my Batchelor of Arts degree in Fine Art at University in the UK… The best, the most terrifying, glorious thing I have ever done. You are going to love it…
