With all of these feelings of self love comes my desire to really spend my time doing the things that are enjoyable to me. So much of my late teens to early twenties was doing the things that as a group my peers would want to do. And that's totally normal. I think by me choosing DePaul + moving to Chicago I really set the wheels in motion to help me break away from that. Of course it didn't happen overnight, but here I am now.
This is probably the lamest thing I'll ever say, but I love my hobbies. I'm rarely ever bored + I really try to fill my life up with interesting things that I love. Music is obviously a big one, but I've also always really loved art + I want to try to embrace that a little bit more.
Ghostly posted a link yesterday for the Sonnenzimmer exhibit at the Public Works gallery which to my surprise is right in my neighborhood, Bucktown, near the Damen blue line stop. The exhibit, from artists Nick Butcher + Nadine Nakanishi, looks pretty intriguing + opens this Friday + runs through June 7th. They have gallery hours too throughout the week, so I'm definitely going to have to peak my head in one of these weekends. Plus, if Ghostly tells you you should do something you probably should...
"Gazing upon their work, one is awash with feelings at once familiar + foreign, as though having wandered into a memory where all speech is in an unknown tongue."
