I mentioned in my last post about potentially moving. I found out in the beginning of June I got into grad school in Toronto! It was a confusing situation because I called them a while ago not thinking I got in and then come to find out I did! So, the past two weeks have been spent making pro/con list after list figuring out if I should move to Canada or not.
Packing up and moving seems pretty daunting right now. I finally found a really great group of friends here, my job is relatively easy, and I live by myself, which are all really good things. And really hard things to leave behind right now. I spent hours discussing it with friends, alumni of the program, etc.
This decision was especially difficult because this program sounds absolutely amazing. It would potentially help jumpstart a career into the art world. But do I have enough time to move to Canada? Do I want to leave just yet? Am I ready to commit myself to this career?
So, I decided I will not be heading to graduate school right now. I was talking to a good friend of mine on Friday and they suggested I just use the next year to have fun. So, I'm going to do just that. I'm going to explore some other interests. I'm going to continue blogging and making videos (they're coming... I promise!). I am also going to take a sign language class at the end of the month! I am really excited about that. I'm slowly coming to terms with the fact that maybe my job doesn't have to do with art. I can still pursue it in my free time.
Onto the outfit...
This is another dress that was so kindly gifted to me by the people at Tobi. Y'all know I love a good shift dress and this one is pretty great! It is a little big on me so I might end up getting it taken in but I still really liked it. The actual dress is mesh and it comes with a slip on the inside, which you can wear with other things. So win-win! I paired it with one of my favorite thrifted denim jackets (even though it was too hot that morning to wear it!) and my trusty white slip-ons. I really need to find a new pair....
