I bought my first set of pots and pans this week – it feels like there’s little more grown-up than buying your own cookware to start off a new school year. To be fair I’m only going to be living in an on campus apartment, but it’s miles difference from having to live in a dorm. (Having lived in a dorm since I was a junior in high school, I can’t say that I’m looking to extend the experience.) For once I feel like I have my school supplies under control and aside from a few more kitchen items I need (plus an eventual trip for groceries closer to the date), there’s not much left I have to do other than actually pack everything so that they can be lugged back to uni.
Anyways, I just finished re-reading An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin. I’d read it first during spring break during the breaks I took from editing my portfolio, but I found myself able to really sink my teeth into the book this time around, with nothing to distract me. If you haven’t read it and you have an interest in art history, as I do, then you should definitely check it out. Bonus: there are twenty-two colour reproductions of some of the art work mentioned in the book that only adds to the appeal.
