Finally we're counting down to the last week of vacation! While being able to relax for a month is enjoyable, I'm itching to get back to school, unpack my room, see my friends, and start new classes! This past week I enjoyed spending time in the middle of nowhere visiting my boyfriend in Northwestern Massachusetts. I did not bring my computer nor did I have signal (thanks T-Mobile haha). It was a refreshing unplugging from the world for a little bit. I got to meet the family and hang out with his adorable poodle Archie whom became my snuggle buddy. He's just so fluffy I WANNA DIE! (yes Despicable Me reference.)
My other favorite was Sol LeWitt: A Wall Drawing Retrospective. This is located in one of the permanent galleries and is MASSIVE. Three floors of his early, middle, and late productions. A combination of 65 artists and art students reduplicated his works down to a T. It fascinated me. Below is a picture of the process in which the wall drawings were created. LeWitt gave explicit directions for all of his works so that they could be reduplicated. Some of these are now my background because there's just something about their magnitude and how they possess both simplistic and complex qualities. This exhibit runs through 2033 so you should definitely make the trip!
I am now in the process of applying for study abroad for fall semester! It's exciting and nervewracking. Luckily I've got the sweet tunage to calm me: Of Monsters and Men. I recommend checking out their album My Head is an Animal, their song Little Talks is one of my faves. Anywho, the program I'm applying to is Advanced Studies in England located in Bath. I'm going to take a few courses as well as hopefully get an internship! Fingers crossed.
2012 looks to be a year filled with new experiences and new adventures just waiting to start. Hope you make the best of your time doing the things that make you happy!
Sending all my love,
