When I got home from my first class today, Brandon asked what this semester is going to be like. I responded "more doing, less hesitation." This semester will be my hardest yet. Not because I'm taking 18 credits. Not because my classes are all seemingly "advanced". But because I'm going to work harder than ever before. Because I want to be somewhere I'm not. I want to be someone as an artist. And getting there is going to take a lot of work. The weirdest part about today: I wasn't mad to be back in school after only 2 weeks of summer. I was happy and grateful. I'm paying for this. I want this. If I didn't want this I could stop at any time. My degree is not my motivation. My development as a human being is what matters most to me, and school is helping shape me.
