Very well then, I haven't posted since before Maine, and there is much to be touched upon.
First off, Maine. Acadia...What an absolutely beautiful place. I hiked nearly everyday I was there, got a nice little tan, enjoyed the genuine sent of fresh air, and set my anxieties at ease with the sound of true quiet. I revived my childhood love of rock collecting along the way. My sister was infinitely amused with my goofiness and we created many a new inside joke phrase. I took a ton of photos, but due to the fact that I am still visiting my parents, I don't have the chord on me to upload. I'll post some later on for inspirational purposes.
So far I spent one night in New Brunswick house. I am excited to get back.
On the drive back from Maine, I had a strange rush of doubt and felt unnerved when I thought on the next two years. Going back to school is a good choice on many practical levels, but for some reason, I still have the overwhelming feeling of intimidation in being my age and going back to grad school. I'm sure it will pass once I get started. I feel really smart and extremely dumb at the same time.
I think once I get settled in New Jersey again, I will feel more confident and my choices will start making sense again. I also might start making some substantial art work again. The root of this probably is that I haven't actually been making.

So, the move out of Philadelphia is pretty much done. I will post pictures of the new house as soon as I take them. I spent my last night in Philly itunes visualizing with Astrid and Justin to Ladies and Gentlemang... Now on to adapt to New Brunswick.
I've been planning some projects for the summer, and setting up a studio in the basement of my parents house next to my father's model making studio. My father will be making monster movie models while I draft patterns and weave. Nice combination.
I have been having terrible nightmares. Lots of imagery of dismembered people and disturbing abandoned rooms with no doors. Hopefully they go away soon. I would like to get some real sleep.
Lastly, I am a part of a show opening at Nexus Gallery in the Crane Arts building this Thursday (June 10th 6-9pm). Make it out if you can. If not, it will be up for a month.
