roman memory sketch goes to college

September 17, 2013 1 Comment

 Omg! I'm so excited to see this picture on the Washington & Lee website of a girl hanging her Roman Memory print in her dorm room... A friend of mine just happened to stumble upon it while browsing the site. How wonderful is that?! My sketch gets to go back to my alma mater. What a glorious endorsement from the world of bright young freshman. I remember how important it was that I select just the right things for the coveted space on my dorm walls when I arrived at w&l, so knowing that Roman Memory made the cut for this girl's room is quite a feather in her cap

I know, I know I know. How cute is she?! This was a recent commission for Megan, a Georgetown student.

Doesn't it just make you want to crack open a new package of flash cards? Back in my day, we walked barefoot, up hill to school, both ways. We also hand-wrote our notes and made our art history flashcards by printing out images and glueing them on little paper cards. This has probably been replaced by some sort of iPad flashcard app. Don't even tell me about it. The memory is too beautiful, I don't want to taint it with modern advancements. Let me tell you, I LOVED flashcards. Loved them.

I've been pining away for the excitement and energy of a fall on campus a lot lately. My summer intern is preparing to head down to Sewanee in a few weeks to start the most magical journey of her young life - freshman year. Not only am I depressed she's leaving me, but I'm green with envy every time we discuss what her new bedding will look like (obviously monogrammed, aqua scalloped edges) and whether she or her roommate will bring the mini fridge. I've literally begged her to take me with her! Youth really is wasted on the young. (Can you say things like this at 27?)

Sigh... at least I'll get a little bit of college in at my five year W&L reunion this fall!
