“Of shoes and ships and sealing wax….”

“… of cabbages and kings
and why the sea is boiling hot
and whether pigs have wings…”

Name THAT poem, kids.

The past months have been interesting, to say the least. I’ve had my fifth experience as a bridesmaid, participated in a dance recital for the first time since I was 16, opened a private art show at a local restaurant and finally decided to attend art school. First things first…

Bridesmaid, Part  V

It was a glorious day, tinted pink and green and all over sparkles. The groomsmen were handsome, the bride beautiful and my dress a marvel of engineering. I worked my rear off in full bridesmaid mode the entire time. My self-appointed jobs included feeding the bride and groom snacks during pictures, making witty banter with anyone who looked the least bit unoccupied, helping the bride go to the bathroom (a wedding-day classic that I had never experienced before) and many more. Favorite memories include waltzing with Trevor, demanding that the groomsmen entertain me because I was tired of witty banter, getting my hair done and watching as two wonderful people promised to love and honor each other for the rest of their lives. Least favorite memory was watching the bride and groom drive away, knowing that a beautiful day was over.

I really hate the wedding reality of making new friends that you never see again. I would have liked very much to spend more time with some of those amazing people!

I’m going to skip the ballet recital and the art show… I don’t feel like writing about either.

As for art school… It has become very clear that this is the only option that stirs my heart. I’ve had enough of being a marginal artist. I want to pursue my heart’s desire of working on film and writing books, both of which line up directly with a degree in Illustration. I’m meeting with my art mentor tomorrow to talk about art school and whether or not it’s worth it. I’ll let you know how that conversation goes.

There you go, kids. A brief update. Hopefully I’ll be able to come up with something more in depth next time.

Also, you should read Wil Wheaton’s blog.
