Literature
Ordinary
Most people fall in love with the extra-ordinary.
Dear me,
You are not most people; never for a moment try to believe you are. You stand out from the crowd, with your quiet ways and subtle humor, and, in the beginning, that's horrifying. But soon enough, you will learn to lift your eyes and set your jaw; you will learn the word no when it comes to fools; you will live emblazoned over the world like a fiery rainbow.
You will learn many, many things in the coming years.
You will learn to smile with all the vibrancy you have tucked away inside of you, and you will learn to be that other kind of beautiful. The kind that dreamers and thinkers are. You will grow your hair out - yes, down to your waist like you always dreamed - and it will tickle your elbows when you laugh. You will define your own fashion sense - not what's popular, but something entirely unknown and entirely you. And it will be more than ordinary.
You will learn to laugh and cry and love and talk. You w

Activity


    Like most people on my watchers list, I rarely upload artwork onto DA anymore.  However, I still use DA, especially when it comes to searching for inspiration for projects and lessons for my students, so for that reason I figured I'd update this dusty blog and tell those of you who still follow me (all three of you!) what I've been up to.   Most notably, I got a new job last week!  After four long post-grad years of working  part-time art teaching jobs, I finally was hired as a full-time art teacher at an elementary school right in the next town over from me. Public school teaching jobs are notoriously difficult to get in this area, with art and music teaching jobs being the most elusive due to the cuts those departments regularly encounter.  I'm gonna miss my students from last year like crazy, but I also know I'm off to bigger and better things.

     As far as nerdiness / fandom updates go (because you can't write a DA journal without mentioning those!), I've been trying to use my free time during the school year keeping up with everything...and failing.  Though I was able to play through Pokemon X back when it came out, and I'm currently utilizing my summer to beat some old SNES games I somehow missed.  And of course I've been sewing.  After spending the last few months helping my afterschool Art Club students make patterns for plushies, I finally have some time to myself to make my own.  I missed it!

    That's it for now!

Read your last entry; "awesome" can't do it justice. I think we're all in good places and good graces at the moment.

All the best.

I just finished reading your last entry. I've known for years that you've never been big into Anime and I hope that changes.

Your man's got excellent taste. Have you seen the original "Speed Racer" yet? I, personally, ain't impressed with CGI (Candy-coated, glorified illusions) but that old-school Speed Racer, especially the theme song... that takes me back.

With regards to "Japanamation," most of it's pornographic and very violent which is why if you decide to delve deeper (which is by my assumption that you might), the real good stuff happened before 1998 concluding with the very gorgeous "Cowboy Bebop."

That's all, glad to see you doing great!

Well, to be fair, there is one anime that I'm quite fond of - old school Pokemon.
But that's no secret ;)
Oh, and I used to watch DBZ.
