People who think they can do no wrong and are justified in all their reasoning and actions are complete fools. How is it though, that I know so many? To think so highly of yourself, you are already setting yourself up for failure. Humility goes a long way. It’s called listening.

My classes this semester:

Studio painting (counts as two courses) (12 hours a week in class)

Studio: drawing for painting (6 hours a week in class)

Art after Modernism

Seminar: Cultural Crossing from China to Japan

Hot glass casting (6 hours a week in class)

Basically means I will seriously have no life this semester.

I just finished reading Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami.

My mind still doesn’t fully understand the connections in the plot or if there are even connections between events but I feel as though I understand the intention of the author.

It’s just a feeling I can’t find a word for. You’ll just have to read it yourself.

If I ever have a kid I will name him/her Ame (Ah-may) for “the forest is alive.”

How grateful I am for everything in this moment has overwhelmed my being to the point of release into the weightless, free of all that holds weight and flies free beyond this physical realm. It’s unbelievable, the space I’m treading, which knows no lines, no forms, no senses.

I am just existing and everything is so beautiful.
