I recently got accepted into the Master’s of Studio Art and Theory program at Drury University in Springfield, Missouri. I’m packing my bags both literally and spiritually as I prepare for a new stage in my life.
More than anything, I’m excited because for the first time in my life I get to create art because that is what I am actually supposed to be doing, rather than what I do when I should be doing something else (like studying). I’m also excited to be closer to a good friend who goes to school nearby and see how our friendship grows.
As soon as I move to Missouri, I plan to (in order of urgency and importance)
1) Find a long term place to live
2) Get connected with a church nearby
3) Find a men’s Bible study (hopefully with older men)
4) Find a mentor
5) Be a mentor
6) Get a dog (any suggestions for medium size dogs?)
7) Take piano lessons again
9) Read a ton!
