Day 314 was a Wednesday. The Wednesday that Julia's orals week show opened. I have been sharing a studio with this girl for the past 8 months. It has been, hands down, one of the best parts of my year. 

The thing about Jules is, her mind is always moving 1,000,000 miles an hour. One day, she is convinced she has decided everything. And the next day she has a new idea. She constantly arranges the things on her wall. She makes beautiful delicate fragile things and throws them around and lets them break. She is a beautiful delicate thing but when her exterior shell cracks and falls to pieces around her, you can see that underneath everything there is a solid steel core. 


I mean, not to get too deep or anything. 

She likes things just so. And every dessert ever tasted is the best thing in the world. (As long as it is, the best thing in the world.) She likes glass on glass and she challenges the details and she helps me find no-nonsense solutions and I help her find no-nonsense solutions. 

This whole year, I have had my chair facing her wall and she's had her chair facing mine. Not sure what that's done to our work, respectively. 

I was so proud to see her show. Her work is strong and makes everyone around feel things in their stomachs, which is what all good work should do, I think. I could just sit her and analyze every piece and maybe I will, one day, but for now have this: Jules, happy:
