ever since leti's bf michael applied for a fulbright scholarship i've had it on the brain. first i had considered applying to morocco, but my dad would have none of it. plus, not only do you need to know french (which i do), but you have to know arabic (which i don't). i then got it in my head to only apply to countries where language isn't an issue. the uk is insanely hard to get (like 1/100 are accepted) and i want to visit melboune, so i thought of australia. but i don't think i have an angle since my art doesn't incorporate anything that is specific to that country. i don't really even know any australian artists that still live there aside from rinzen. i should start reading yen magazine.

really, i just want to paint dollhouses and do stained glass that incorporates my love of textiles. which leads me to scandinavia. i could apply to the home of marimekko, but instead i think i'll apply to sweden. there's a 23 percent acceptance rate (far higher than most places) and they don't require you know swedish; although they encourage it. plus, i know some kids there.

i'm also going to apply for skowhegan for this summer (the deadline is fast approaching) and a marine headlands residency. i'm scared to do anything outside of a major city, since i can't drive, but maybe it won't be an issue. all of these applications want slides and the procedures seem daunting, but i need fire under my ass and come may i won't know what to do with my life.... so might as well paint some place far away for free.

Yeah! Scandinavia! My husband went to Norway for his Fulbright, and he made videos there.

i applied to skowhegan! so they could have the joy of turning me away. i hope we both get in although i know i wont. fulbrights are so tantalizing. i have a friend who got two, one in high school, one after college. fucking gifted shit man.
