I have a critique tonight in my digital photography class.
I thought I had seen the last of critiques when I graduated....nope!
I really hate critiques. Really. I mean, it would be one thing if they were actually useful, but most of the time it's a bunch of people staring at your work saying things like, "I really like how you used red in your picture."
Or I love it when people say, "Oh! It looks like a toaster I had when I was growing up." Or I think it looks more like the Easter Bunny wearing a Santa suit." Yeah. I just want to get this over with....
I don't want to sound like some sort of art snob or something. I mean, it's not like I ever say anything remotely intelligent or helpful. I just find the whole process really painful.
On another note. I think Michael wants to move to New York. He said I was going to love it, and want to move there too. I've always wanted to live in New York, but I don't know. I guess we'll have to wait and see. I still love Portland. It will always be my home.
Speaking of New York...I leave in like 2 weeks! Eeeee!! I am really nervous. Really. I am afraid of getting lost mostly. I have the worst sense of direction, and can't read a map to save my life.
Butch will be there...but I know he has to work, so it's up to me to get around most of the time. I will probably just stay mostly in Williamsburg, and venture out with Butch. I am excited though. Very excited.
