The CS!

The CS Goes to the MAM!

That's what we WILL be doing on Saturday! And for some residents who have never experienced the Milwaukee Art Museum, this will be a true delight. Together we'll discuss art and culture, lifestyle and politics, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Almost everyone on the floor will get to go and enjoy the art and beautiful museum!

Check back in soon for photos of trip!

On another note...

It's November. That means it's getting cold. That also means classes are well, well, beyond the easy, intro, get-to-know-one-another stages and might actually be causing STRESS.

For artists and other creative people (like the people of NG1-- The CS), November might mean you're in a creative slump. Don't let the weather or stressful classes bog you down! Go and enjoy the final days of fall while you still can! Today the high is 61 degrees! Beautiful. Take time and do things that keep you sane. Continue to do the things that spark creativity.

Now is a critical time in the semester as finals or final projects are looming on the not-so-distant horizon. Prepare. But stay sane. Many of the creative people around you are struggling in the very same way, so don't feel alone either. Just breathe, be organized, and do what you naturally do best: allow creativity to flow forth!

Here's a lovely interactive video piece by artist Chris Milk that inspires me to be creative on the most cold, uncreative of days... "The Wilderness Downtown..."

If you like Arcade Fire, than this video is surely for you.

Thanks for reading! And good luck exploring the infinite abyss (of your creativity).
