Me so bad.
Ok, so it's been almost a year since I have written a blog. I have no good excuse, except that "I've been busy." But that statement is everyone's easy-way-out sort of excuse. Whatever.
I'm in California at the moment. I've been here since December 24. I fly back to Boston tonight. I hate flying, but it'll be great to get back to my little cozy cave-of-an-apartment. I recorded an album with Brad Dutz while I was here (and also performed with him), sold four things on Etsy, made an assortment of crazy creations, and read. A lot. I read three Murakami books (WILD SHEEP CHASE, DANCE DANCE DANCE, SOUTH OF THE BORDER WEST OF THE SUN) and two Banana Yoshimoto books (ASLEEP, GOODBYE TSUGUMI). I also read half of TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE but stopped because it was sort of pissing me off. I took care of my dying nana for 1.5 years and reading this soap-boxy-crap about a student's relationship with an old professor just seemed kind of lame. Whatever.
Seeing family was very good, actually. My dad is on anti-depressants now so he's about 50 times nicer and less angry than he used to be. I'm not sure how brain drugs really work...is this the "real" him? Who knows, but I like him this way. It's easier on my family as well.
At the end of the month I begin my last semester at Longy. Scary stuffs. I have to give a solo recital and I will also be applying for a big-girl job in Providence, RI. Application stuff is quite scary. Letters of recommendation, fancy resume, my letter of interest, CD....it's like exposing my soul to the universe. I have to begin this stuff while I'm on the plane.
Alrighty, well I will try and keep this blog updated more regularly.
Oh yes, in crafty news, I must tell you about the items that I sold. My robot string quartet (my favorite piece by far), felt grape pin (which I made so long ago), Sylvester the Sperm-Like Snake (a crochet scarf/amigurumi/thing), and my polymer clay "Sea Lion in his Happy Place." Very nice. I also made a purchase of the cutest hummingbird ever from http://VermontFairies.etsy.com It's so cute it makes me want to cry.
