There’s something really magical about being surrounded by fellow artists. That energy that everyone feeds off of and gives to, that sense of community and belonging. That’s what I missed the absolute most when I graduated college – suddenly, my community was gone. I didn’t know how much I respected it and flourished in it till I didn’t have it anymore. It shouldn’t have come as a shock; I knew I was graduating. But what I didn’t realize is how bittersweet graduating was; beyond having a degree, it meant leaving a community (or getting abruptly thrown out in a cap and gown, whichever).
Keeping that in mind, I posed this question on Twitter: What’s one success you’ve had this year? Here’s a few awesome responses:
Candy from @CandiedFabrics: 3 magazine articles! Those led to TV apperances and more articles in the pipeline!
Aren’t those awesome? So, your turn: what’s one success you’ve had this year?
