I realize it has been over two years since the last time I wrote an update for this journal. You know, life just keeps on rolling. I graduated upper secondary school (kinda like our version of you americans' high school), and could finally stop feeling like I was being choked by our media/marketing/psychological manipulating bullshit subjects, I don't even know. Ok, they're not really bullshit. But I did feel like I wasn't doing the right thing there.
Till the end of May next year, I'll be attending a one year program at a school in Oslo, where I have the subjects Art (general visual arts, I guess), Urban Sketching/Architecture in Oslo and Writing Workshop. It's exciting to live in a real city, which on top of that is on the other side of the country. I'm really enjoying it so far, and I feel a greater freedom in the subjects I take here.
When I moved to the school, I decided to leave my best and most awesome, super powerhorse of a computer at home. This means I will not be doing a lot of digital art when I'm here. Making this decision was nerve wracking, because I am so comfortable with digital painting. That is also why I went through with it. I want to challenge myself with new mediums and approaches this year, as I felt I was getting a little stuck in the digital world of artsss. So yeah.
Also, I have been writing a lot of amateurish, casual poetry the last couple of years, and now really want some feedback on them. So I was wondering if I should post some of them here? Or maybe make a separate, anonymous account for that kind of sentimental, personally revealing thing.
We'll see, I guess.
