Vulnerability is a bitch.

I have to start writing my thesis this weekend.

This shouldn’t be as daunting as it feels because I know what I am going to write about, but it is…

I tend to talk circles around what I’m really trying to say; this is a defense mechanism.

In the past I have wanted to put more of myself into my work only to edit myself back out again when I realize that I’ve been successful. Vulnerability is a bitch. More recently I’ve become more comfortable with the fact that who I am is inseparable from the work I create. It’s a journey I’m humble enough to admit is still in progress.

Writing my thesis is simply another exercise in overcoming my fear of being vulnerable.

I’m hoping that this blog will help me open up a bit and provide an outlet to work out my ideas about my work and my process in a more organic way.
