today i went kayaking for the first time in my life with philup, arlene, brian, mikey, and juliette. it was amaaaziiiing. a must for everybody. it’s so much fun… and strangely tiring. i only say strangely because i wasn’t tired while i was out there rowing, but i was tired when i got out of the kayak. i think it was the sun? *shrug.
anyway, afterwards, we went to yardhouse for some beers, dinner, and to watch the laker game. and it was then that i found out that kobe wanted to “one up” jordan. my ass. go back to 8.
..especially when they’re just growing up and they sound like they have speech impediments.
So my three-year-old nephew is IN LOVE with Thomas the train and all of his train friends, and apparently there is this particular one called Percy. He hasn’t really developed his speech skills too well, and it’s unfortunate whenever he loses his toy because he runs around the house screaming, “WHERE’S MY PUSSY!”
As of yesterday Saturday, May 9th, 2009, at 11:45am, I am an Otis alumni. I got the tassle and everything… except for the diploma. I’m so glad that I’m done with it and never have to go back again! Unfortunately the show is still up and we’re tearing it down tomorrow and Tuesday.
Now it’s time to get back in shape! I’m going to start jogging in the mornings and see if I’ll have enough money to join a gym. Haha.. work is off for the summer for a few months, so I won’t have a source of income unless commisisons come and galleries want to show my work. Wish me luck for the future.
On a lighter note, one of my friends from school Olga wants to buy three of my bottles and a color study for one of the big drawings! It’s not much, but it’s a start. I was so proud to put a red dot sticker (these are the stickers that are put in the binders to indicate if a work has sold) in my binder’s pricelist. Haha. <3
Yay the opening reception went super well, although super stressful and tiring running around and trying to attend to everybody. Thanks SO MUCH to everybody who was able to make it, and to all the well wishers who weren’t able to make it. Really, without you guys, I wouldn’t be doing this. …because I probably draw you.
Today is the VIP opening reception of the show — which means all the rich folks who want to buy stuff are going to take a look at all of the artwork. Hopefully they’re interested in some of the things I’ve been working on.. and/or my mentor pimps me out to work for them. Eeeeexcitements! Otis is also giving us dinner, but it’s most likely it’s going to be italian food slop. Haha. *sigh…
Tomorrow is the opening reception for the rest of the world at large. It’s free; check it out
