Thursday the 9th

Posted on Friday, November 10th, 2006 under Life Sketches | 4 comments

Today was really a pretty exceptional day. The usual hanging out with friends and eating lunch togther, of course ... but I even worked in some sketching and inking, spray painting a new project and a little bass practice too.

Last night's LOST fall season finale was quite spectacular. Maybe not so much, in that we now have to wait four months for a new episode, but more because the story is teetering on a precarious enough point that I think I can make it through the dry spell. Just pass me another great DVD-based serial so I can wash away my anxiety. :). I am also really enjoying Heroes. Aside from tossing around any spoilers, I can say that I love where things are going. I had many doubts about the show, just into the second episode, but I am now definitely seated and ready for more.

So where are things headed for me? What are those lofty dreams I feel the need to start running toward? Hmm. Sitting back and thinking along those lines kinda hurts my back ... or my heart, really. Knowing that many times, I really wish I was in a different place, doing a different job, kinda gives me heartache a little. As much as I love FCC, I don't think it is really where I want to be right now. I don't even know that Illustrative is where I want to be. Sure I tend to be as wishi-washi as my laundry soap on a shiny disco floor, but I continually feel the need for more. I want more art in my life. More creating and do-ing. Less telephon'ing and typing.

Well, let's talk dreams then. If nothing else mattered; if reality wasn't standing with its foot out to trip me, what would I want to be doing right now? How about a full-time design studio, run by me and a couple of friends? We create our own stuff and screen-print our own shirts? That's not too shabby. I'm not sure how financially sound it is, but I know it would be "rock-my-socks" every day good. What about me working at Pixar or Disney? Pretty amazing, I think. Not only would I have to work hard to get there, but I would be challenged in my artistry daily ... something that is definitely missing right now. How about teaching at a great-sounding schools like Full-Sail or Ringley? I could see myself as a professor that spending his free time surfing on some sweet beaches, no doubt.

I'll leave you to ponder those ... and what the heck ... why not share your hopes and dreams? Lay it on me. What is it you would want to be doing right now if life took you there instead of here? Oh and here is a cute little guy for you to color. Later.

Argh! I have been putting this post off for a while now and THIS is only like the fouth version I have written. I keep trying to find the right words and emotions (or is that inflections?), but it keeps coming out wrong. Instead of sounding sincere, all I hear in my head is vapid ...

Got somethin' to say? This is the place ... just try to play nice.

not gonna lie, the color-me pic looks a bit like Ceaser Romaro. which is super neato.

if you're having the nagging feeling of not being "settled" or "happy" with your current place/position in life, change it. and do so before you start self-sabotaging. it's no fun once that has started to happen.

as for sharing of position would be where it not for silly ol' reality, i do believe i would have been a chem teacher by now. but since i'm not, i would love to write a book. somewhat in the manner of Tim Burton's book "The Melancholy Death Of Oyster Boy & Other Stories" which i suggest everyone read, but mine wouldn't be as dark. twisted, yes, but not so very dark. i'm better at silly. from there, to have a publishing company, though i know nothing of the business. i think it'd be something that could bring some character, jobs, and recognition (OTHER than just sports recognition) to this area.

i'm also kinda long winded, but with good intent.

You mean Ceasar Romaro, like as in the guy that played Joker? I'm cool with that.

Thanks for the words of encouragement/prompting and for taking the time to share your dream. I've never read the book, but for only $5 on Amazon, I probably will check it out. And a chemistry teacher or owning a publishing company -- that is excellent.

You long winded? I felt like that was a really long post for me! :)

Hating where you're at and dreaming for something bigger, grander, cooler has been the theme of my entire semester this year. I've come to the conclusion that it is not wrong, or unwise to change things in your life that you dislike. If that means a change of location, job, life, whatever so be it. People leave jobs and schools and it's ok. Life is too short and too good to be stuck in a situation unhappy that isn't really neccesary. I want to leave FCC with almost every fiber of my body. I want to be out, talking to non-Christians, Christians, dogs, etc. and telling them about who Jesus is and how they can experience how good He is. I want to be seeing the world, not the butthole of it. I want to be loving people and bettering myself to bring glory to my Saviour. BUT- my timing isn't now. I've prayed, begged, pleaded, and dealed and God continues to tell me to wait, and so I listen. If you have strong convictions, or a sense of peace about staying then I don't suggest fighting God's plan because He's kind of got the upper hand, but if you want to change for the sake of change, or the sake of passion then go for it prayerfully and He will give you the desires of your heart. I'd be terribly sad to see you go (if it's before I graduate, otherwise get the heck outta there asap) but I also understand the pain and strain of the back, and heart, when everything earns for something more. Good luck with finding the peace of being here or the plan for getting out. I'll be praying for you. This is so long.

Thanks for the comments and advice, Missy. It's funny how emotional you (as in me) can become knowing that others care about your future plans and are rooting for your success/happiness. Thanks for the prayers.
