This is the last night in my studio, I’m not painting or cutting paper but instead cleaning where I slept and ate, worked, wept, kissed, read, spent time with friends, my birthday.. where I leave little parts of who I was.
I keep finding little fragments of time.
Last night I stepped out of my last class and immediately called my father. We both wept at what I have just accomplished. I remember people telling me “people like you don’t go to college” and my mother allowing me to stay home from school one day so we could go to organizations asking for help.
In 4 days I walk and receive my degree.
This is why I should or shouldn’t learn new trades, because the obsessive compulsive within me kicks in and I end up crocheting a 14.5 ft x 6.5 in scarf.
IOWA HERE I COME!
This will be the first song I play once I settle in Iowa.

A catalog of the print show in Egypt came in the mail not too long ago.
Hello old self, have fun in your new home.
Last night I had my BFA reception and.. to be honest, it still hasn’t hit me that the moment I have been working towards for the last 4 years finally came.
It might be because the last 4 months have been nothing short of amazing, terrifying, and unsure but one day this summer I will find time to look back, reflect and let it all sink in. It is still too early to say I can breathe.
Regardless, it was great to personally thank some of the professors who have been pivotal towards my progress and go gallery hopping one last with friends.
The Dream is Now

“lejos del cielo,
cerca del cielo allí nadie te va poder parar
libre de todo pensamiento,
libre de… dolor y llanto
y búscame cuando sepas a donde
vas a llegar. “
I will miss this place. Thank you Memphis for taking care of me yet another year. And for serenading me on at the stroke of midnight, we had a great four years.
