I can’t believe the year is over and that tomorrow I will be graduating with my Master’s in Public Relations. This year has been a whirlwind of events, emotions and experiences. Looking back, I am grateful for all of the experiences I have been privy to have had and for the people I have met during my time at Newhouse.
As I’ve mentioned before, the experience was life-changing.
While graduations are always bitter sweet and there are sure to be some tears, it’s always refreshing to move on to a new stage in life. While nerve-wracking, it is exciting. Especially when you have specific plans or ideas pertaining to what you will be doing next.
As I spend this time reflecting and feeling nostalgic, I would also like to share a colored pencil and ink drawing that I completed a couple of weeks ago.
We all know by now that I love Frozen both for the imagery and its adult themes. I’ve also already mentioned that I especially (along with everyone else in the world) enjoy the “Let it Go” scene as the artwork is incredible and the message behind the song is universal.
Although this began as a pen and ink drawing, I soon realized that color would make the image more vibrant and add more depth . While it may not be what one might consider a “great work of art,” I had a lot of fun drawing it. And after this rough year of school, I was in serious need of some fun drawing.
While I still have a few degree requirements left, I know that the next few weeks will be my letting go period of graduate school. While I will miss my friends and the school that has become my second home, I am looking forward to ditching my hourandtenminute commute, spending more time with Andy and the dogs, and finally beginning my career.
