I wish I were in a better mood to write this. School started and everyone is officially gone! I'm not sure why I have an exclamation point since it's been literally awful to have everyone away and to start new with no friends. Making friends is so much harder than I remembered/expected, and because I'm not living in the dorms, I haven't been forced to make friends/meet people that way. However, because I've been so alone, I finished my journal! A great thing about being in art school is that I can freely journal/draw during class and no one cares!! In high school I was always afraid to pull out my journal during class for fear of seeming annoying or too self assured, but the other day in a lecture for critical studies (the worst class I've ever taken), I wanted to journal, but didn't want to seem like I wanted everyone to look, so I looked around the classroom to see if anyone would notice, and EVERYONE was drawing. I felt so at home then, that was really lovely and one of the few good experiences I've had in college so far! Yay! Maybe it will get better, but for now, here are some photos of my outfits for the first few days of school and my journal pages.
(here's the photo from that journal entry because it's so so cute and I miss this boy so so much)
One good thing about everyone being away: my closet got a lot bigger with things I'm borrowing!! This is my friend Claire's dress on top of her skirt
(right is the journal entry I did during Critical Studies)
I hope you're all doing well with your start of the school year :)
