Portfolio: Not mySelf: Not mySelf; 5 Sep 19

Today is my last first day of school as a student.  It’s a surreal feeling, knowing that in 15wks I will graduate with my MFA and be on my own in this crazy, chaotic art world.  I remember my first day at the school 9yrs ago as I started my AA degree.  I thought I wanted to be a fashion photographer but realized within a couple semesters that 1) nope.  And 2) I wanted to teach.  So despite everything, and with a TON of support from my husband and kids, here I am… Starting my last semester of my terminal degree in Fine Art Photography, assistant teaching at a college, and praying harder than ever that once I get that final degree I will be able to find work.  I am one that needs control and predictability when it comes to the big things and not knowing what is going to happen after this is killing me…  But for now, all I need to worry about is introducing myself to two new classes.  And maybe make some jewelry because I have an awesome elective!
