"It's always interesting to see big people doing a pose like a ballet dancer. Like, you know, graceful..."

O_O

Point 1: I have been modeling for more than six years. I am well aware that art students of all ages will occasionally speak before they think and say some fairly insensitive things that they will not apologize for unless you gently point it out to them.

Point 2: This observation was made by the ART INSTRUCTOR.

Oh it get's better...Collapse )

"Please tell me why..."

Filling this meme: Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

My life today...

- First job: Off today

- Second job: worked a 9-hour shift that reminded my feet, legs and knees that army boots, while excellent for walking, occasionally hiking and biking a variety of distances are *not good* for standing around in and waiting for people to give you their coffee orders (also, they destroy the floors).

At the close of my third week, I'm finally being trained on the drinks bar so I can be of more use on shifts. Had to refuse another tip today, which was really nice -- because the customer turned around and told me I was *fabulous* ("if I can't give you a money tip, I have to at least give you a verbal one.") Awww.

- Freelance jobs: None today, four-hour sculpting class on Friday which I'm planning to be early for, considering I was late last week thanks to a train mix-up. I start another sculpting class on Sunday.

- Writing job: 300 more words and counting. My werewolf and vampire have an odd pack of friends and neighbors (and are being watched by a slightly sinister government). I still have no idea how my werewolf was cursed in the first place -- I'm hoping that comes about in my next few brainstorming sessions.

- General health: Don't know on this one. My sleep patterns are definitely off. My body basically crashed last night, plunging me into 11 hours of sound sleep without so much as a cup of tea or a Tylenol PM to help it along. When I woke up, I was groggy so I made myself a mocha along with breakfast. By one o' clock, I was feeling lightheaded and later I had a headache. May have been caffeine withdrawal more than hunger -- since both continued after I ate lunch (with which I drank a bottle of water). My sinuses are irritated and I felt feverish earlier. I made myself a cup of tea once I got home (with honey, ginger, cinnamon and cayenne pepper to soothe/clear the sinus problem). The beeping thermometer tells me I am *not*, in fact, feverish which is good news.

- Tangles with the Tax Man: Not truly a tangle. Had to look up and record my income from the VA so I can include it along with my W2 and records of my freelance work. Hopefully this won't take an eon and a half to process.

- Tangles with the Post Office: Long story short- I'm never trusting USPS with my parcels again. They failed to deliver a t-shirt order from Think Geek last Friday and failed to redeliver it *again* after I made two requests two days in a row. Last night I phoned in a complaint and the caseworker on the line said it would be automatically redelivered today. Guess what wasn't in my mailbox, next to the bank of mailboxes or on my front step when I got home? Somebody needs to die.

I JUST WANTED MY T-SHIRT for fuck's sake...

- Tangles with Exes: Not really a tangle either. More of a "where do we go from here?" moment.

So yeah. Life is quite busy. I think I need a vacation from it.

"Thinks I like today" post

- The TARDIS valentine Bobbie sent me with the Second Doctor inside

- Tinned beef ravioli from the grocery store

- Series I downloads of QI

- Finding new and creative ways of economizing space in the apartment (Ex: I just bought a printer -- when it gets here, it's going under my loft ladder)

- my new vacuum cleaner (not high-powered but it's picking up the dirt fine so far)

- downloads of Jonathan Creek

- the staff at B&N

- the fact that a few of my art students are also regulars at the cafe and HAVE YET to notice the girl handing them their coffee also works for their school

- pomegranate green tea with lemon and honey

- Matt and Vanessa's tendency to refer to the honey bears at the condiment bar as "honey badgers."

- my traumatized werewolf character and her geeky pack.

Restless tonight...

Should be sleeping. Am not, for some of the following reasons:"

- I got the job at Barnes and Noble, which is wonderful. I like the cafe staff there and the booksellers. Several of us were hired at the same time and have temporary status until April -- not to say we'll all be fired once April rolls around, but we'll see what happens.

- I had two art classes this week in addition to 20 hours at the cafe. In the middle of the week, my friend Lindsay asked if I could come and help with another mass mailer in her office. I said yes, probably shouldn't have. Listening to recommendations on how to network and find a "real" job plus Lindsay's repeated notes that I should "find a job" so that I can room with her... Yeah, could have done without that. All kindly meant but slightly patronizing and made me feel like someone who has not yet proved that she can live in this world without a handler.

- In addition to the art academy hours, I also have 8 weeks with a Friday sculpting class at Palette & Chisel Fine Art Academy and 10 weeks on the schedule with their Sunday sculpting class.

So after all of that this week I'm exhausted... but not sleeping. How does that work?

I'll have to put a "Thinks I Love" post up soon, just to counteract some of the meh I've been posting lately.
