Tracy Helgeson tagged me on my other blog like....10 days ago, but I'm happy to repost it here as well. Ok, here we go:
5 Things you don't know about me:
2. I’m crafty! This is probably true of mosts artists, but I am really good at…just making stuff. I sew handbags, make jewelery, decorations, pillows, table cloths, and soon I will try my hand at doll-making. I made the above bag years ago. I still think it's adorable.
3. There are 2 things I've always wanted to do: I always wanted to learn to play the guitar. (I’m actually adding that to my to-do list for 2008. ) and I've always wanted to write and publish short stories. I've always been a writer, but I've never published anything. I just finished reading Blake Nelson's Paranoid Park (can't wait to see what Gus van Sant has done with it!) so now I'm toying around with the idea of writing Young Adult or YA fiction. Being a grown-up is over-rated anyway.
4. I can’t draw. I mean I do it, but not well. In fact I’m pretty horrible at it. So much so that I thought I’d maybe try to do the NYSS drawing marathon to loosen up and learn how to do it again. I’ll add that to my 2009 to-do list.
5. And last but not least: I really hated graduate school. A lot of it just had to do with being at a weird place in my life, but in general I found all but a few classes quite miserable and all but a few of my classmates quite intolerable. If it weren’t for a handful of good professors like Juan Sanchez and a few friendly buddies like Jeff Sonhouse and Tricia McLaughlin, I think I would have just packed my bags But alas I did finish.And here I am.
