Looking Forward

It still doesn't feel like summer vacation. And I also still am in the job hunt race. I haven't heard back from Hands To Art like I was really hoping I would - so today I think I'm off to Starbucks because I know they are always taking applications. Hopefully I'll find something here soon so that when Prince Charming leaves me for the summer camp he's working at, I won't be too bored while he's gone.

We have seen a lot of each other since I've been home from school.

And I love it.

And I love him. A lot.

Anyway, moving right along, looking forward. Yes. Forward. The Future. *ahem* I am excited for it. Next semester I should hopefully be taking classes that I may actually like and want to exceed in for once. Namely my art classes. I'm a little nervous for those because I haven't taken an art class in a while. But I keep up with my sketchbook and since I've started dating Prince-y, I draw a lot more than I used to.

Mom says she thinks I'll be fine. It'll all come back to me. I think she's right, but there's really only one way to find out, you know?

Except that I just want to be done with school. I really do. I want to be done with papers and essays and tests. I want to be done with big projects and finals and homework. But I still have three years ahead of me. At least.

But at least when I graduate I'll have the qualifications to do something that I've pretty much wanted to do my entire life. Teach. Even when I was a nutrition major, I still knew that a dietician ultimately teaches people about their bodies, food, and eating correctly. So my drive to instruct has really never left.

I just never thought I'd teach art.

Anywho, I do think that I can complete this degree. It's a huge switch from nutrition to be an art education major, but I'm looking forward to it. I'm also looking forward to having Prince there next year. And possibly when I'm a senior, The Keeper could be there also. Which reminds me...

The Keeper, The Mechanic, DP, Mom and I were all having a conversation about their bloggy nicknames because they don't really fit with my whole 'castle princess courtyard' deal that I have going on with everyone else's names.

So here's what we're thinking:
The Keeper will become Robin Hood because that totally fits his personality.
The Mechanic will become the Court Jester because he's really hilarious and knows when to crack the perfect joke. He'll be CJ for short.
And we didn't know if we should change DP's name. She's not nuts about it, but we all think it's perfect for her. Well, my dad doesn't like it either because he thinks it shows favoritism for one daughter over the other which doesn't exsist in our household.
Oh, and I guess this makes my parents King and Queen. However, I think I'll still refer to them as Mom and Dad. :)

Oh yeah, and quick sidenote - this is my 150th post. Go me. :)


  1. I love the nicknames of everyone.

  2. Want to swing by and give you hugs and let you know you have another pressie on my, you are so spoiled! hehe

  3. I have a Mona Brooks book that you can borrow if you'd like to take a look at it. It is beneath your level, but it is a solid foundation of art instruction. It may get you in the frame of "Hey, I can totally teach this stuff!" :) There's a chapter on Reaching Special Education and At Risk Students as well. Might help reinforce your thinking?
