dailies 5/23-5/29.

oops, the dailies are a tiny bit late this week! not having my life scheduled within an inch of itself has led me to take a few too many liberties, apparently. back on track next week, for sure! here they are:
sunday, may 23rd: "trying my hand at growth again."
 monday, may 24th: "all the things she couldn't say."
tuesday, may 25th: "the most adorable dinner party ."
wednesday, may 26th: "standing still, eclipsed."
thursday, may 27th: "making poor use of my newly free time."
friday, may 28th: "helping me feel like i could call this city home."
saturday, may 29th: "do you really mean the things you say?"

as an important aside: i have purchased a basil plant and kept it totally alive for the past nine days! if you've ever met me, or heard the unfortunate fates of any of the other green things i've owned (accidental cooking and inside-out rotting, hooray!), this is quite an accomplishment.

also, i have discovered a new way to display my dailies that does not involve frames or mats (two things i very much don't like). stay tuned for their big debut! sometime soon. have a great abbreviated week (thanks memorial day!).

dailies 5/16-5/22.

salutations! or at least, hi friends! now that i have finally procured my master's degree, i imagine i have to use fancy talk all the time. or something. i'm just excited to be able to finally wrap up the all sorts of loose ends that i have accrued throughout the course of student teaching. whew! what an incredible, wonderful journey this has been. but enough of that, let's get to the dailies!
sunday, may 16th: "audible anxiety."
monday, may 17th: "wow, thank you, so much."
tuesday, may 18th: "how encouraging that our conversation did not hinge on art ed."
wednesday, may 19th: "i woke up with a children's book in the front of my brain."
thursday, may 20th: "getting back to productive."
friday, may 21st: "issuing countless thank yous."
saturday, may 22nd: "i wish i could title work like she can: accomplishing what my dailies attempt."

here's to a renewed sense of focus, with a shiny, new, and slightly more flexible schedule (for now). have a great week!

dailies 5/9-5/15.

full disclosure: this week, the dailies WERE NOT COMPLETED ON A DAILY BASIS. after a long, long LONG final week of student teaching, and a thirteen-hour marathon showcase installation, i am DONE and graduate tomorrow! i can't quite believe it (slash) i'm so excited!
if you are in baltimore, check out the amazing commencement show and see my students' work on the 2nd floor of the fox building at mica.

sunday, may 9th: "OH GOD i purchased everything i ate today."
monday, may 10th: "josh ritter added my favorite song to his set MAYBE BECAUSE HE KNEW IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY"
tuesday, may 11th: "i was on the brink of losing control all day."
wednesday, may 12th: "ignoring how much work i had to do and taking the time to celebrate her was so, so worth it."
 thursday, may 13th: "knowing is always better than not knowing."
 friday, may 14th: "creating and instant and unnecessary void."
 saturday, may 15th: "my here family finally getting to meet my everywhere family."

also, my josh ritter obsession has only gotten worse since i saw him live on monday. if you haven't yet, check out his new album, "so runs the world away," streaming live over at npr. 
hooray! see you next week.
