The world isn't going to end if you have class from 1:30 to 5:30 on Friday's. Believe me, you aren't binge drinking and making poor decisions until well after 10pm. Get. A. Grip. Life sucks when you become an adult and have responsibilities. Just be happy your "work day" ends at 5:30. Never mind the fact that you don't have class on Monday....AT ALL. When I was your age I had two studio classes back to back on Mondays from 8:30 in the morning until 9:30 at night. I also had class every Friday AND I was commuting 45minutes one way on a train.
Guess what I call that time now. Vacation. I'll be paying for that vacation many years from now and dang it...it was worth every penny. So put a sock in it lazy bones and go make a camera out of a coffee can while I sit at a desk and extract data.

Recently, some young folks in my office were talking about how much they wanted to have a baby. By young I mean under 25. All I could think of was this:
Again, its not that I don't love and adore and enjoy my boy but WOW It's hard taking care of a baby. My advice to those reading this without children and under the age of 30....wait. Wait until you are at least 30. Enjoy your youth and freedom. Do what you want whenever you want to do it. Then hunker down and start your family while your back can still manage to pick up a 25 pound toddler. At 30, you can do that. Plus you'll be WAY more mature.

I brought it in to replace a larger piece on my office wall. Anyway, he said: "This painting is lovely. Is it new? You should paint more." To which I replied, "No, its older and I would LOVE to paint more if I didn't have to work all day and then go home and take care of a toddler." Oh if only I had the time and money, my friend. My ass would have work in the Whitney Biennial by now.

At least its educational. Why am I defending myself?
Yup, still feeling guilty. Being a mom sure is challenging. What's the super story answer?

Aren't they cute?!!! Aaaagaaagggggggaaaaaggggghaaahhhhgghh. - That's my typed drooling impression of Homer Simpson. Besides these cute little mounds of sugary goodness we had a bear mobile made out of recycled magazines, paper lanterns with paper flowers on twigs, cute little cake pops (below) in a tea pot,bright colored fabrics on the tables, an Asian-style canister with fortunes from everyone and a large helping of baby presents. I'm certain we rocked her world hardcore.
