Happy New Year!

I've resolved to do more cultural things in 2008. I'm going to start with the Art Institute in Chicago, which is currently exhibiting Girls on the Verge: Adolescence, a collection of photography portraying girls in those awkward years.--"Adolescent girls find themselves on the cusp between girl and woman, child and adult. It is a time of physical and emotional changes, of yearning for freedom while secretly cherishing constraints, of finding the pleasures as well as the terrors of one’s own appeal to the world."--
Reading the description of this exhibit got me thinking...The early-mid 20's are a lot like adolescence aren't they?

Resolution #2: Make it through my 2nd adolescence with more grace and less drama than my 1st.

Haha Kara, I have the exact same photos that I will never look at again. I've seen the exhibit now and it was just as nauseating!
