Last night we went out to a bar to dance and dan and I left at some point to get burritos and our friends were still there so I just brought the burrito with me back into the bar and everyone was jealous it was the best then I did a tequila shot and chased it with burrito.
a list of good things bc things are pretty good
-new apartment is amazing. its crazy how much a space can change your outlook on a day. i wake up and everything feels easy. sometimes dan and i just stand really far away from each other in a room for the novelty of it. the last couple saturdays i’ve woken up early and curled up on the couch with coffee while watching tv and its just been perfect
-school is busy and great. i like my classes, mostly research heavy, so thats a change of pace but mostly i just feel much more confident and comfortable and in my environment, and thus more productive. its a nice change
-this week was especially busy because i am working on curating a show for Harvard/MIT( exciting! and i might have work in it too!) and i also submitted another group show for a Students Curate Students show at the MFA (such a cool opportunity too, fingers so tightly crossed)
-have my thesis committee all set, which was a big stressor. still don’t realllly know what my thesis will be but I am confident something that i feel proud of will come out of it
-i got a raise at my job (!!!) and they retroactively applied the raise to the past 7 months so !!!! that’s really exciting
-currently working 3 jobs actually, all three are rewarding in different ways and keeping me on my toes but I’m making it work
-had a really nice housewarming party with lots of nice friends and its just nice to have a space to invite people to. I think we’ve already had more people over to our new place in three weeks than we had over at our old apartment in one year. seriously
- going on a field trip to the ICA tomorrow and to another art gallery at Phillips Academy to see some shows which will be fun with my fav teacher that I TA for ( my idol/role model/mentor) and our small class of like 6 people
- i had to write a sassy email to the class i TA for bc no one did their hw for this class >:o
-(this isn’t a good thing) but my skin is really shitty rn and its really stressing me out. I am breaking out and the overall texture is suddenly bumpy and oily :(( i’ve been trying to majorly overhaul my skincare routine but so far my face is not responding and i’m self conscious/worried about it bleh
-school is a 12 minute bike ride from my new apartment and it is perfect. the closest burrito place is one block. my closest friend is three blocks. my favorite book store is three blocks. etc etc its just great (ending on a posi note)
okay thats all
Despite the perceived randomness of the theft to other students, Blue said that he stole the tusk for two specific reasons: one being political and the other artistic.
“My political statement was not a specific thing…It was more of a statement of discontent from a student, and also, showing how helpless I feel in the administration and how voiceless I feel,” Blue explained. “I feel like students are dissatisfied with the administration and students don’t really have a voice to speak about it effectively.”
Artistically, Blue perceived the theft as artistic creativity. He noted, “When I took the tusk in the first place my plan was to sort of create a new kind of media by manipulating a Vassar administrator to create art for me. So here I’m talking about Don Marsala and his email. So it actually really worked out well in that respect.” He continued, “Obviously I never planned on going to jail. The way I see it, when Don wrote those emails he made art for me and thus became my art medium.”
