Survival.


The past five weeks have been a serious test in endurance, and it all culminated last weekend. I got offered an amazing opportunity a few months ago to take a curatorial internship at Tate Modern, which of course i was shocked and amazed by and had to take. But this meant working six days a week, and i think a little bit of me is still recovering. I haven't quite been motivated lately to do anything but sleep, which is all i did last saturday, on my tiny tiny couch as seen above.

 It's been the kind of month that you put sweaters on the wrong way around, and trip over your computer cord, and try to grab really hot pots off the stove without thinking about it. I think March in London might be one of the harder months, the whole winter is hard here because the days last about 4 hours total (ok, not really), and it's rainy, and it is grey grey grey all the time, and March specifically is the month where it really feels like it might never end. But the thing about getting through the hard months, and the months you work harder than you feel like you've ever worked before, is that you do survive, and then you know you can do it next time. Onward into April!
