it is absolutely ridiculous that i am five seconds away from being done with college at twenty six, but i guess i did drop out and not go for multiple semesters and just worked. whatever! come friday, it's bye bye columbia university. i am in the home stretch, writing a paper comparing titian's venus of urbino with manet's olympia. wrapped up a 15 pager regarding richard prince and warhol with foucault's idea on rupture and authorship. how fucking academic i am for about two weeks a year.
i'm not going to commencement, nor is my sister who graduates from hunter at the same time. it seems pointless when you know zero people in your graduating class. my family lacks all school spirit! yet are absolutely adament about education and finishing college. my mom is getting her phd and is a professor at uc berkeley and my little sister is moving to new zealand to study at peter jackson's studio for her study abroad. it was cute that for a year or two there my dad had all four of his girls in college at the same time.
but no more!
friday i celebrate. after my birthday party, i think james and i are going to take a road trip to the south.
don't feel bad, i just graduated from the art institute of chicago @ 26.
and oh how i miss writing paper and being intellectual. my last paper was on the whiteness of the females on ancient greek pottery as a visual representation of their position in greek society.
what are you going to donow that you graduated (not that you really have to worry since your blowing up everywhere with your art - i'm so jealous)
Maybe that road trip will help you find some answers about what you're going to do from now on. You could also apply for a study abroad program, you're obviously and adventurer and I think it would fit you. Check study index in Israel, you might find something interesting there.
