Learning like i was in 12th grade, but this time for the most important exam of my life: the Canadian Citizenship knowledge test. It’s happening tomorrow morning. And I am really really nervous. We have to know about history, culture, politics of Canada. Tons of dates and people to remember.
Obsessing about the new Of Monsters and Men album, Beneath the skin. It is so so good. I am planning on learning all the songs by heart. This song in particular strikes a personal chord:
Reading Dangerous Creatures and coming back to Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s gothic universe filled with modern Sirens and Incubuses and Casters. I forgot how much I loved their writing. (and yes I unapologetically read tons of YA books).
Planning my lesson for Radiant Faces 2, that has recently opened its registrations. I am surrounded by artists I deeply admired (the pressure is on).
Redefining why I love painting and why I have to keep doing it. No quitters in that home of mine.
Looking for my True North.
Remembering how good it is to spend time with a friend, laughing and sharing and eating sushi so good we both just can make some “hmmmm” with a nodding head because it is just so so delicious.
Typing this lying in bed. I am not sick, just my body is making me pay for the hour of fitness assessment I made him suffer on wednesday. I can barely move.
Loving the short driving lessons my husband is giving me in the morning, once a week. That we are learning to better communicate with each other. That he reinforces my confidence.
Expressing who we are through painting our walls. Giving personality to our home. Finally.
