As an interior design majors we are forced to take a lot of art classes.

 All of the following a projects I completed last semester.
In my new art class, we are working on a self reflective piece.
I mentioned to my teacher that I write this blog and he gave me the idea to run with a visual blog.
I've been playing around with it a lot. 
It's a hard piece.
It forces me to dig really deeply into my blog and myself
to figure out my purpose here.
I guess in reality it's just an expression of my life and my memories,
and that's what this piece is going to reflect as well.
But there is something about my classmates reading these posts that intimidates me.
I don't mind when complete strangers read my daily thoughts, but when the people
in my art class have the opportunity to, it sort of terrifies me.
It's a weird thought that I can express myself so vulnerably to the internet but not 
to people who I see on a daily basis.
I guess that's kind of the beauty of the internet.
Anyways, I'm looking forward to sharing the finished product and seeing how it progresses.
I hope you've had a fabulous Thursday.

Empire State of Mind

I'm back from the big city and back to real life.
And I'm a little bittersweet about it. 
First of all, it feels like I never left.
While I was there, I felt like the week was going slowly.
It was nice considering that we were doing so much.
We saw all the big stuff, the empire state building, lincoln center, radio city hall,
columbus circle, central park, the works you know.
It was overall a fabulous week.
We did so much shopping and sight seeing.
By the end of the week, I was confident enough to navigate myself and 
walk a few blocks alone to get a pastry from a little french bakery.
I felt like a true New Yorker.
But I'm going to be real with you.
This Texas girl can not handle the big city.
I was overwhelmed by how big it was.
It was a great place to visit, but it is not a place I ever see myself living.
It's a place filled with people all crammed together.
And that's just not my style.
I can't wait to go back and get another taste of the big apple, but for now,
I've got my fix and I'm happy with where I'm at.

Here's the thing. 
I am so incredibly blessed.
My family is amazing.
They support me in all my endeavors.
They help me reach all of my dreams no matter what they are.
And because of my amazing family, I have a really cool opportunity this week.
I am going to New York City.
And it would not have been possible without the support of my grandparents or my mom.
I am going for a class.
It's a design trip.
So we get to see showrooms
 and meet with some of the most well known designers in the city.
We are going to all the best museums.
We are having a mixer in Holly Hunts showroom, 
where the furniture costs more than my tuition.
I am beyond excited to be able to take advantage of this trip class while I am in college.
Texas Tech has given me so many opportunities that I couldn't have ever dreamed of.
I absolutely love my life here and
 I am so thrilled that I am able to soak up every moment that comes my way.
I definitely haven't been living the life of a normal college kid these past few weeks
and getting to go to NYC for spring break is just another great thing in my life.

I want to say thank you to my family for always loving me and 
supporting all my undertakings no matter how crazy you may think I am for 
being involved in so many different things.
Thank you for giving me the life that I have.
I wouldn't be where I'm at today with you.
Thank you for paying for me to go this week.
I can't wait to get back and tell y'all about this little bloggers trip to 
the big city.
