We have a baby with THREE teeth coming in at the same time this week...and it sucks. I sometimes think that I'm doing a disservice to some of you by not owning up to how hard this whole baby/grad school/new city thing truly is. That's not to say that it's impossible or that I would do it any differently, but damn...this is hard! When I was pregnant I thought, "grad school won't be too crazy because I would've gone back to work full-time anyways." Working full time versus the incredible personal investment that comes with graduate work is quite different than what I expected. I do consider myself lucky to be in this position, but today is one of those days where I'm so exhausted that I seriously question the decisions I've made with regard to graduate school. I always do this...I write these really confessional posts and then I delete most of what I've written. I'm doing things a bit differently this week because this week has been challenging and I don't have it in me to pretend otherwise. This week's Collected post features a beautiful pottery collection to zone out on. It belongs to Mieke Tacken and I first noticed Mieke's collection through Peggy's flickr favorites. I've posted Mieke's globes before and have admired her photos for some time. I hope that her photos bring you much inspiration and I promise that I'll be back tomorrow...minus all of my bitching.
