About a year ago I was interviewed by Latinos Behind the Lens about my academic decisions.
At that point I was in the mindset that I’d never go to graduate school, I couldn’t afford it, and could live without it. I’d just stick to a 9-5 and get to my own projects on my downtime. Then I got real with myself. I was in a complete creative photog’s block, becoming stagnant. I had all these ideas, but wasn’t sure how to implement them, and was becoming a bit too comfortable with mi vida cotidiana.
Then in the fall someone suggested grad school once again. And I figured, what do I have to lose. After scrambling to put together an application and desperately writing a statement of purpose two days before the due date, I applied. And on my wedding day, I received the news that I got in.
So in two days, the game will change. On August 25th, I will start orientation for my two year graduate studies in Advance Photographic Education at the International Center of Photography! *insert happy dance*
