Busyness. Sometimes I feel like my life is going by me in a blur and I don't have time to think, let alone process what is going on around me. Is it really the middle of August already? I thought I better do an update of said life before it all becomes old news.
I have enrolled in school again. Forever the perpetual student I will be attending classes for a Graphic Design degree. I was never really interested in it in college, not to mention our program got overhauled half way through. I regret not pursuing it, thinking that I wouldn't use it. I see now it would be a great way to be creative in a work enviroment, which is exactly what I am pursuing for my next career change. Don't get my wrong, I love my job now, it allows me to physically help people with out having to deal with the unpleasant things of blood and guts, that nurses have to, but I know this job has a shelf life and I can already feel it taking a toll on my body. No twenty seven year old should creak and crack like I do already.
It's mostly being creative that I want. I feel this need to make things and try things because I have not had a space/time to do my art. Silkscreening is messy and needs a lot of space, and I have a manual camera and it's becoming harder and harder to find places that still develop film.
I am both excited and nervous to be going back to school in a more traditional sense again. It seems like both just yesterday and forever ago that I graduated college. I know that if I wait any longer though, I won't go. I am becoming very complacent in my job and circumstances.
We recently (well as recent as a month and a half ago) moved to Grandview. It's not far from where we used to live (German Village), so we are just as close if not closer to downtown, Short North, and work. We are closer to most of our friends and tons of shops and restaurants. I love it here. Grandview is an urban suburb. We are still in the city and still close to everything, but we are no longer near a ghetto and don't have to worry as much about our cars getting broken into (it happend four times in German Village), not to mention there is a Jeni's Ice cream a short ten minute walk from our house. I always thought that I would be sad leaving German Village since that is the only area I have lived in since moving to Columbus four years ago, but I have have fallen head over heels in love with our new area of town.
Believe it or not, we got a dog. Her name is Bulleit (Named after the bourbon) and she is a Boston Terrier/French Bulldog mix. I never thought I would ever get a dog, mostly because they are work and a lot of responsibility, but here we are and I wouldn't give her up for the world
