Heading to India in T-6 hours and the excitement is growing. My fellow traveler, Jess, is a basket of nerves and I am attempting to not feed it. I am confident that our travels will go smoothly and that our experiences at the Kumbh will be extraordinary. Cannot wait to be in the energy! Om Jai Jai Sai Maa!
Seriously considering taking next semester off… must decide by Nov. 1st.
Had my wisdom teeth extracted. Enjoying the pain meds and much needed rest.
How could it already be week six?
Where did the past month go?
And Midterms? WHAT.
Spent the ENTIRE weekend in the weaving studio, weaving and weaving and weaving…BUT, I finished the 4 yards and had a positive critique.
Really struggling with my Ego and the affects I allow it to have on my physical body.
On a happy note, I have unofficially been approved to be an Individualized Major… and I am also considering the option of taking a leave of absence or doing several semesters abroad. My advisor/head of the Individualized program even ventured to tell me that she would support my decision to leave the school if I found travel to be more conducive to my artistic practice.
Meeting with her again on Monday to discuss this whole thing more in depth.
Back to school and mountains of work…
The week in Maine/Montreal was rather different, but not entirely unpleasant. Things have a way of working out eventually.
Working on many things and learning to not think too far into the future.
Practicing being in the present
weaving, Weaving, WEAVING (it is due on next Tuesday)
Becoming aware that the past really needs to stay in the past
Major adjustments are in store
Realized that life is not complete until one gets a text from a friend (at 10:30pm on a thursday, during midterms) stating that she is “Shamelessly naked in bed, on tumblr while listening to a Harry Potter audiobook. THIS IS THE LIFE”
(Yes, it is wonderfully weird, I KNOW)
Ready to begin working toward the clarity of my mind, body & soul and to no longer focus on aspects of life that are not mine to control (future relationships, other people’s life decisions, etc.)
Beginning this post early in the week.
(Finished warping my loom!)
School is far from the most important thing this week.
Monday was a lovely day!
Had my first taste of (this years) Bay Area fog… Still surprises me how socked in it gets.
Feeling very blessed for all the things have have begun to fall into place. Even the little things like finding new friends, really shows how much is changing.
Embracing the shift!
(Procrastinating on packing…despite my utter excitement)
Traveling to Maine (beginning on Tuesday night) and then on to Montreal (on Thursday)
Ready to spend time with the most incredible people I know
Share the energy
and be Shakti-fied!
Bliss Bliss Bliss
Well this week has flown by…
Chopped off most of my hair… more than I had originally intended.
Began sleying the reed for my first weaving (four weavings) of the semester.
Finished tessellation pattern for Tess to Toiles class… next come the transparency print and screen burn.
Finished all assignments on time.
Dealt with painful wisdom teeth; finally broke down and got antibiotics/pain killers to make the next couple weeks less excruciating.
Cannot believe I leave for Maine/Montreal in 3 days… rather surreal how the whole situation has some to fruition.
The weekend will be spent writing my artist statement (draft), getting ahead in class work and threading the heddles on my loom!
