So, if my favorite band can overcome their issues, then the world will be alright, right?
As I face another round of job hunting, I have found myself suddenly re-inspired to create art. At least, I am creating "doodles." Drawing at all has gotten the creative juices flowing, though. I've been keeping a visual journal (something that's been practically impossible in the past - I guess I never really knew how to start it). It's very relaxing to know that whatever is in this journal, bound forever, doesn't have to be a cohesive whole. It will be whole when it's full. It's an account of the present. I always wanted a visual journal to have predetermined planned out pages. I started sketching in it when I found myself without a book to read. Now, I have to choose between reading and sketching. I keep the sketchbook with me at all times, and the students know me as that 'sub who draws.' lol. This title is getting me noticed, however, and that is not a bad thing in a district with a job opening in the fall.
My career issues stem from all the interviews I bombed last year. I think I tried to be something I wasn't. I thought that I had to be what everyone thought I should be. In doing so, I had myself so nervous about not being me that I had a hard time being someone else. yeah............. So, maybe, I'll be posting some sketchbook pages in the near future. I have been enjoying watching others produce fabulous art here at DA. I've been favoriting A LOT of new work!
