It's time for a less serious post I think. A more me centered post. I'm an official employee at my workplace now. No more am I a temp. I'm not a bum anymore! Yay! That makes me happy. Not that I ever really was a bum. I figure that as long as you're at least looking for a job you are not a bum.
I dreamt last night that I was sculpting back at the 'Dale with my old sculpting teacher. He's an internationally renowned sculptor and an excellent teacher to have. I'm sad that I do not live close enough to take more classes from him, or be an apprentice sculptor. I really need to get back to doing that. I feel kind of listless and sad most of the time. I think part of the reason for that is having to wait to take sculpting again. I always got rid of a lot of stress in the sculpting studio. I could be in there for hours and hours just working slowly and I would forget the time and whatever was making me mad and everything. It got me away from reading, papers, studying and extra things I had to do and made me forget that those things were piling up. I just need to be able to do that.
Writing is nice but it doesn't help in the same way as sculpting. Writing is not as absorbing. And I just type. I like the feel of clay in my hands and, despite it's sulfurous qualities, I even like the smell of it.
I thought that I could go back and start sculpting during the second summer session. But I don't think I'll be a state resident until July and the session starts in June. That's probably a no-go. Maybe I can start with the fall semester. It seems so long to wait!
