So, I'm moving to Denver July 1st with M.
(I'll be starting a PhD program in the fall, Literature & Creative Writing. I'm both excited & terrified.)
I have never lived away from the east coast. I'm both excited & terrified.
My basic emotions are (besides excitement and terror): I'm sad to leave my friends & sad to leave my career in academic publishing, but ultimately I think it's healthy to try something new & I think I would regret not pushing myself to read & write & think more than I am right now. I'm optimistic.
Our new apartment will have a yard. And I foresee a pound puppy/mutt in our future as well as spending more time on our bikes.
If you live in or near New York, please hang out with me before I leave! I'm going to this thing tomorrow:
The third yardmeter editions event will feature poets Brenda Iijima & Daniel Lin, multimedia artist Craig Foltz & jeweler/sculptor Kristin D'Agostino.
Yardmeter Editions is an events series that brings together artists, writers, playwrights & other creative types in an informal setting in the Gowanaus neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY.
