I think the hardest thing about being an engineering major is the lack of art in my life. Its one of the few things that I miss about high school. By my senior year I was in the ceramics room for two to three periods every day. I took AP art and submitted a 3d art portfolio my senior year. Something about ceramics, both hand building and the pottery wheel, is the most soothing thing in the world to me. I would come into the studio, plug into my headphones for the period, and zone out. There hasn’t been anything else in my life that has made me feel quite like that.
For my birthday, my roommate got me a gift certificate to a pottery studio and I can’t wait to use it and bring a little art back into my life.
