Hello again. With school going full swing, blogging has been, unfortunately, pushed to the back burner for a little bit. I have had so much on my plate, like trying to finish up college, and make money while trying to secure a future career of some sort; all this to say that I have been very stressed and have had to cut out some of the things that I love to do (like blogging). Lately, however, I’ve come to the realization that life shouldn’t be all stress all the time; there has to be a balance to it. In an effort to bring more fun back into my life, I’ve decided that I need to get back into blogging. Once I made this decision, I realized how many pictures I still have from my trips over the summer, so I will be diving right back in! I hope to be posting about once a week again, so stay tuned!
A couple of months ago, I took a big trip down to Virginia Beach (more on that here if you missed it), and I got to see some pretty amazing things. It’s amazing how much history and culture you can find when you look for it. Though I wasn’t feeling great during the trip, I still had plenty of time to explore.
There are two great museums that were within driving distance from where I was staying. I knew I wanted to visit both of them, but matching my free time to the hours that they were open proved to be quite the puzzle! The first museum that I wound up at was the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). While I was there, they were partnering with Hi-Fructose magazine in a very interesting exhibit.
Though, perhaps, not for everyone, I really enjoy art that lends itself toward ‘strange’. I loved this exhibit because every piece made you think. Nothing in the exhibit was made ‘just because’; everything was created for a specific purpose, or message. I wish that I could share the whole exhibit; unfortunately, I’m not allowed to share anything on my blog from the actual exhibit. I encourage you to check out Hi-Fructose magazine if you are interested!
The other art museum that I went to, The Chrysler Museum, was equally interesting. Though, like I said, I typically find myself in the modern and contemporary sections of museums, they had some classical pieces that were gorgeous. While I was there, the Herb Ritts exhibit was also there (which I had seen once before, at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Ohio). Both museums are extremely high quality and I really wish that I could post more photos! The other things that I want to share (and will be sharing soon) from Virginia Beach will have many more pictures to go along with them.
Coming up, I will be sharing more of my outdoor adventures, as well as a series on the shows that I saw down on the board walk.
Thanks for reading!
Until next time,
