This picture is my ultimate favorite of Nick and I’m glad I have it because I haven’t seen this handsome face since Sunday.

We are going to the fair tomorrow night, which should prove to be more fun than I think it will be.

It’s been a long week and I’ve looked forward to seeing him every day. It doesn’t matter if we go to some crappy fair, I’ll just be glad to go with him (and eat fair food).

When I broke your heart I thought I had broken my own. I felt like my whole world would come crashing down around me.

It nearly did.

A few days later I got up and made coffee and I felt alright until I remembered. I cried. I sobbed. It racked my body to the point that I couldn’t breathe. I lamented the loss over every kiss, every touch, every utterance of love. In the end, what I lamented most about, was lost time.

That was very selfish of me, but Im a selfish person, and its the truth. I lost a lot of time, but now I can see I learned a lot as well.

That day as I collapsed in on myself in pain and agony and anger, I looked myself in the mirror, gasping for air. I looked at my sorry self; that girl I was when I was your’s, the girl I didn’t like, and I said to her;

"Enough. Wash your face and breathe. Today is the first day of the rest of your life."

And so I did, and so it was.

I never looked back.

Well, a month into school and I’m already losing my shit.

I’ve gotta finish my commissions. After I do that I WILL NEVER TAKE ANOTHER COMMISSION EVER!

I’ve also decided to focus on ceramics. I’m going to put painting away for now because it doesn’t do anything for me at this moment. The little stupid pumpkins are the only enjoyment I get from the medium.

This is also a bad time to have a boyfriend, but Lord knows I would be psychotic if I didn’t have our little dates to look forward to all week.

I thought maybe I could handle full time school and work (tho I’ve lost some extra over-time hours that really made a difference). Next semester I think I’ll take out a small loan to help cover extra school expenses I always forget to factor in. As it is now I’ll just have to suck it up til then.

I hate doing that though….my ultimate goal was to get my bachelors degree debt free! However, this is my last year, and in the scheme of things a small loan for the first time I’ve enrolled in college won’t be so bad to pay back. I suppose it could be worse.

Also, I’ve got a headache today. I need a beer. That’s what I need.


*looks at you seductively* *lowers glasses* i can’t see a thing


*sees a dog*

me: holy shit

Little pumpkin you’re gunna make me some money. This composition sold the best. Now I need to make more of these.

Out of all the stupid shit I get asked to paint for people (snowmen, their cats, sunset) I enjoy painting pumpkins the most.

No one asks me to do them, but I started to paint pumpkins last fall and sold all my paintings and nearly every print. I need money again so it’s time to crank out these little orange dudes!

Yay fall!

My little lidded jar! Too cute!

Hiya Arian! I'm actually looking for colleges and I was just wondering how the ceramic program is and if u enjoy it there :)

Hey Dave! Well, at West Texas A&M the art department in itself is rather small. There isn’t a ceramics degree. Well, you could technically get a bachelors in Studio Art with a Minor in Ceramics. That would be it. Ceramics is offered in four levels so you could only take it 4 times. It’s stupid. The art programs here are Graphic Design, Studio Art, Glass Blowing and Art History. That’s pretty much it. If you want to get a degree in ceramics, don’t come here. I wish I had the money to go anywhere else, but my job is here and my sister is too. So I make the best of it.

When looking for a college look at their catalog of programs. Find a school that has a specific ceramics degree program and has professors that specialize in ceramics. You can look up your professor’s bios on the school’s website as well. All of that is public knowledge. Make sure the school’s ceramics program meets your need and the professors have a good list of qualifications. You’re still going to have to take basics courses your first two years. Math and science and English and all that boring stuff. You get to the real meat of your focus your Junior and Senior year. I suggest going to a community college to take care of your basics. It’s cheaper that way. Then transfer to a four year university for your last half. I also suggest going to a university rather than a trade school. A bachelors degree is more valuable, especially of you want to go on and teach.

Also!! Check out University of North Texas. That was the school I wanted so badly to go to!

It’s nice to see the covers laid out! It’s not how I normally see them, which is ripped and drenched with tears.
