I miss going to school

This semester I chose to take a break from taking my Bachelor’s of Adult Education prompted by a new job and an unknown workload. Sitting here today on this fine Sunday morning I muse that I miss going to school every Saturday. Crazy eh? I most definitely miss my tiny cohort of 6. I also found out that the Professor that is running the current course is in my top two favourites so far. I seems, some days like a double whammy that I am not able to attend. Yesterday one of my classmates even told me that this course is the easiest one thus far. AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Don’t tell me that! Oh well…we have to own our choices.

Today I thought I would share with you a journal entry that I made in honour of the last professor I had. She was wonderful and supportive and I thought she was journal entry worthy. She did some amateur acting on the side so I called her our leading lady. This shows you that you can literally make a journal entry for any reason. She reignited my love for learning and discussion and teaching. Thank you Starr!

For this entry I used acrylic paints and stencils to colour the background and then used magazine pictures and words to convey my main thoughts. The writing with my sharpie came after I completed the whole picture. On the last day of class I presented her with a colour photocopy of the page and she was very moved that she had inspired me to make art. Later Starr let me know that I had inspired her to get back to her art as well. Happy!
