It has been a quick two weeks with the start of spring and a break at home. The weather as been really nice and everyone has been out and about enjoying the sun. There have also been some optimistic dressers in flip-flops and shorts. Although today was a little colder and rainy this morning on the way back to New Paltz, the sun is slowly starting to come out. It was perfect for a walk into town for lunch at Yanni restaurant café.
The week before spring break:
I had a lot more free time than I was use to since my metal classes had been cancelled. I was able to enjoy some time in the studio and work at my own pace throughout the day. I worked on a casting project of a tea strainer, and jewelry that I want to sell at the upcoming sale at the Watermarket in town. The highlight of the week was the field trip I took with my Contemporary Ideas class.
We went to Mike & Doug Starn Studio in Beacon. It is a photography studio of two brothers who work together on projects. We didn’t meet the brothers though; we met their studio assistants who showed us the work, the process, and their installations. Their recent work is “Big Bambú” which is a climbable sculpture of
This past week I spent at home on Long Island. It was great to see my family and spend time with them especially since it was my mom’s birthday! My mom, aunt, and I went to lunch at a cute café in Bayshore called Milk and Sugar to celebrate. I unfortunately only saw two of my friends since most of my friends have different breaks. I did watch the season finally of Pretty Little Liars with my friend, Crystal, and ate frozen yogurt at Red Mango with my friend, Olivia. Most of the week I spent cleaning my room. I decided during winter break that I wanted to repaint and redecorate my room, which has not changed at all since second grade. I first needed to completely clean my room and by the end of the week I accomplished the whole room and got rid of a lot of stuff that I didn’t need.
I am looking forward to the end of the semester especially with the warmer weather and the cute spring outfits I cant wait to wear!
