I spent my residency in a very structured, patterned way roughly akin (the more I thought about it) to how I'd ideally spend every day.
Just before 10am I'd arrive at Mud House where I would work on my computer for a few hours. I looked for and listened to music, played chess and watched clips of someone playing chess – generally wandered around the internet and planned my day. Then I would go to some studio visits (I did around 14), go to a gallery or museum, or work in my studio. The days mostly ended with me at Whiskey Ring reading. I got a ton of reading done, which was great, and I enjoyed the local beer which even better. A few nights I went out to events – shows at Foam, music in the basements of Blank Space and the Livery. I spent a lot of time with my fellow resident Ola, with whom which I when to Cahokia Mounds.
