I went back to Purchase today to sort out some ever-present financial issues and install a sculpture, that chapter of my life is officially closed. No more college . See normally, I'd be all frenzied to do what college kids tend to do when the new school year starts; celebrate with lots and lots of cheap beer; Whilst hungover I would vacantly attend my classes and as the hangover finally subsides I would squeeze in some generous video game playing just before it was time to start drinking again. Ah Purchase college. All the parties that are exactly the same, all the kids whose futures are in Williamsburg, all the strung out dancers and identity crisis-ing actors. I waved goodbye to all that today, and I realized: I got a lot of fuckin time on my hands now. Books! I can actually read again! And make some big sculptures without feeling like I'm neglecting certain social and alcohol related obligations! ... I mean shit, I don't even want to drink anymore.... Ya know, I'm really lookin forward to this coming fall. (winter still sucks)
I just remember how fantastic sleeping is!
*blog entry about the many interesting/excellent/crazy teachers whom i've had in my extensive school-life, coming soon.
