I love things that happen at the last minute....I hate them but I love them. Well my internship at Northwestern was SUPPOSED to end the 1st of this month, then, on the 28th of August, I get called to the preservation director's office. My heart starts beating fast, and I don't want to jump to conclusions, but in shocking twist, things worked out. They offered to extend my position until December. I said yes. YES!! haha. I may have been a bit loud considering the library atmosphere. I was very excited.
I should mention, that I really really REALLY am thankful for Northwestern. They want me to go to grad school almost as much as I do. The conservators are so supportive and friendly, the atmosphere is similarly so. They're truly a great set up and I cannot believe how lucky I am to have this opportunity.
Now that means I will be taking three studio art classes, interning and volunteering, not to mention I have yet to take the GREs and will be slowly putting together my actual program applications. Oh life. So intense.
Anyways, I am extremely excited, and now looking forward to my visit to the Winterthur programs portfolio day NEXT WEEK, but I am tired, trying to finish things, and catch up, even though the semester has only started. AAHH life, it never stops.
