It’s raining out, so I put on a baseball cap to hide my unruly blonde hair while running errands. There is a girl in front of me as I leave my building. She pauses before exiting and spreads her arms wide, singing out “Open sesame!” to the automatic doors. There are people all around the lobby. No one even glances up at her. I, on the other hand, get odd sideways looks at my attire, red baseball cap, jeans, Wellingtons, and my brother’s old sailing jacket. Wait, I’m the oddball? Am I in a parallel universe? Nope. I must be back at MICA!
New semester. New professors. New bedspread. New camera lens. No longer the wary freshman freaking out about paintbrushes and drawing paper size, but a weathered sophomore ready to get down and dirty with the good stuff. And by the good stuff I mean the REALLY good stuff like Typography and Digital Photography and Graphic Design. Here’s to a new start and a new adventure! Cheers!
