This spring semester is wrapping up quickly! Since I last had an update, classes have ended, I've taken four finals, have been working tons of hours, and am wrapping up loose ends before going on a start of summer vacation with my family. With my work hours has comes a lot of TV watching- I've finished Eureka and am now on season 3 of Skin Wars. I'm also trying to muster up the energy to continue studying for the last couple exams I have this week. Last weekend my mom was in town for an art fair, and I'll share more of that in a future post. Below are some shots from the Third Ward. My roommate, Ryan, and I went to check out a couple free art shows two weekends back. One of the reasons I love Milwaukee is that there are always free events taking place!
I stopped at the Public Market to get some cumin from the spice vendor. It's the best deal I've found around so far and it's fun to check out all the other unique blends.
I bought a coffee mug at the Islands of Brilliance art gallery. It's now my go-to mug and I've shunted the others aside for now. I take turns with my coffee mugs and will use the same one for months, then switch and only use another. Anyone else do this?
In the past month, I've been lucky enough to have gone to Belair Cantina twice! They restyled their menu and have a new inspirational quote: "Inhale tacos...exhale negativity." I think it's a perfect motto for finals week!
I went to a conservation gathering to hear a guest speaker talk about how to passively make our homes more energy efficient. I learned a lot and have the main principles down below in case anyone else wants to know.
Ryan and I also went for a bike ride to the lake! He's always riding his bike, but this was my first trip of the season! We took commemorative photos...one of which I was ready for and the other not so much...haha! I'm going to need to get more comfortable riding my bike in the city because my university bus pass will be unusable during the summer months because I won't be taking classes. This will make grocery shopping even more interesting! Also, check out that gorgeous water in the long shot below! (Wishing I could insert a heart emoji here).
That's a brief update on the college front. This is sure to be an interesting summer. I've talked to both of my jobs and it looks like my work schedule will be decided as we go. Additionally, I'm going to pick up a new fitness routine and make a list of summer books to read since for once I'll have a lot of time for leisure reading! I am also playing with the idea of doing some anatomy illustrations to combine studying and art. And before that, I've got family vacation, so I have a lot to look forward to!
Hi my name is Emilee and these are my adventures as a young adult living in Milwaukee. Here I will share my experiences as I navigate through college. Thanks for stopping by!
