During my college years, I spent many a night (and morning) toiling away at projects in my various classroom studios. At the time I dreaded it – the lack of sleep, the feeling like I couldn’t possibly have enough time to make something worthy of presenting, the endlessness of it all. Little did I know that not too many years later, it would be a lifestyle I miss.
Perhaps I only miss it in theory; I think hindsight isn’t 20/20 for me because I see my college years through rose-colored glasses, remembering those long nights as nights of bonding, community, commitment, purpose – things I am yearning for now. I miss having a space to truly create and being a person so dedicated to creating, that space felt more like home than my own home. I’m working on getting this feeling back, but until it happens I’ll continue to covet these enviable studio spaces on Pinterest.
