Here Goes...

So, after a tiring, but fruitful journey, I am here, where I am supposed to be: grad school. Virginia Commonwealth University. Craft/Material Studies. Fiber. A decision was made many months ago, but it just now feels like the ball is rolling. I have a new home, new studio, new peers, new life. I have so many ideas for my time here that they would already fill an entire book... maybe they soon will. This blog is for the ideas that are too special to stash away in my book. 

Odd marks is a befitting name for my first blog. I love the word "odd." Like my name, it has twin letters beside one another. Plus, I am a touch odd. "marks" are drawings, but I also like to think of them as words, too.  Since this blog will include commentary, "marks" is short for remarks. Slapped together, these two words should function well to title my personal meanderings on the web and in life.
