getting ready

I am getting ready to start my MFA.
I will be in the city for twelve days
Without my family
I have never been away for more than one.
And that was with my husband.
Surely I can do this
Maybe I'll enjoy it.


  1. Wishing you all the best with the MFA. Yes, you can do this and enjoy the creative time.

  2. Oh wow - wishing you best and of course you can do it! You'll enjoy the process for what it is :) cheers!

  3. Best wishes! You can totally handle this.

    I spent a month alone taking courses in D.C. last summer, and as desperately as I missed my husband, it was liberating!

    Have fun!

  4. Work until you drop- you will not get homesick that way...Good luck. thinking about you!

  5. Enjoy! At least, you'll have your other little family, in that box (wish i had this box!)

  6. you can do it! i imagine it will feel strange, different, exciting, and even a bit disorienting as this entirely new world opens for you - a new phase, a new life. and the best thing about it is that your family will be at home cheering you on. (and so will we!) good luck!

  7. Good luck and enjoy!

    ... I'm sure you will enjoy it ...and afterwards you will enjoy being with your family even more!
