Bananas!

April 16, 2009

No blogging since February? That’s simply unacceptable!
I’m sure I’ve done many things worth remembering, but alas–my memory has been calibrated to ‘goldfish’ and I’ve gone and forgotten things.

Anyway…
Last weekend was Adam’s 24th Birthday so we had a nice gathering of people to the apartment to celebrate. Much eating, talking, and laughing took place as always. The highlight of the night was most definitely the escalation of the seemingly innocent (and newly acquired Bananagrams) into an all out orgy filled word fest. Perversions abounded as we used every word in the book (and some not in the book) and every letter in the Banana to form a master crossword of nastiness. It was absolutely hysterical.

Easter Sunday was much less so, but nevertheless a nice day. It was the first holiday spent with Adam’s family over my own. I can’t say how fond I am of the prospect of sharing holidays between families from here on in, but I guess it goes with the territory. I love his family but it goes with out saying that there’s just no comparison to the comfort you feel when you’re with your own…

More than ever lately I’ve been filled with the desire to paint but haven’t had the attention span to actually make anything of it. My mind bounces from one thing to another, wasting time and accomplishing nothing. I almost wish I could go back to school just so I can learn to focus again…

I want to be an artist all the time. Working full time on things that are not creative is leaving me with a massive void of fulfillment, pride, and purpose.

Oh, to be an illustrator with enough projects to pay the bills and enough dedication to keep growing and improving…

I just want to be good.
