Back to School...

Today I started my Summer A class at FIU- Figure Drawing II. I left class very excited and glad I am back. I am almost done with my degree, which is Art Education. Unfortunately, graduation will only happen if I pass my GK math test. I hate that test. I passed everything else last year and I am on my third try- maybe my fourth if I don't pass it again. This is really hard for me to share because to a point it's a bit embarrassing, but to another extent I am just being honest and showing you a bit of my skin.
My prayer is that I would stay excited as I continue to learn to draw the HUMAN FIGURE. My teacher is great. She's a little bit all over the place but she is super nice and she remembers me. She remembers me dropping this class two semesters ago due to scheduling, she remembers me from 2 years or more ago when I took her for drawing 1 and 2. That just speaks a lot to me and it was really encouraging. She was bumbed that I told her I had switched to education, because she said she had a lot of stuff she wanted to show me and she wanted to work with me.
Instead of thinking to myself that I have wasted all these years and feel sorry for myself, I am praying that I can make the most of it and remember that graduation day will come and that learning never ends.
