Friday Feelz – Take 2

Why "Take 2"? Because honestly the first version was, I don’t know, not where I wanted to be really. Maybe the adjustment at the chiropractor also adjusted my attitude. Who knows. So, let me, instead of editing the old one – just take another stab at it. As I mentioned yesterday, I’m trying to not…

Not Dead Yet!

Maybe it is the absurdity of the week as we recover from the news of our boss being fired, but today, as I was realizing that either A) we had no system changes this week or B) people were hoping I would abandon the process, Monty Python popped into my head. Specifically, this one: I…

PerplexedI received a message from someone on Fetlife the other day. This person is someone I don’t know (and female), so I expected the content to be about art. It was about art – but specifically an upcoming artist showing at the gallery. The message left me scratching my head. This person was calling me…

Motivational Monday?

Yeah, the question mark is deliberate. Mainly because this is going to be something different. For two reasons, one it has been on my mind – and the other is because work has been hell today which is why this is late. So here goes…. Last week I was around many people in the local…

Last night, the words relieved, happy, excited, and appreciative come to mind. I was excited to see all of the people at the show. The artist did an amazing job promoting it as the place filled up with her family and friends. I was relieved at that too. The last show was a dud with…

No Kaboom!

One of the very first shows I curated at the club allowed for one of my nightmares to play out as we were getting ready to hang the show. The art had been delivered a few days earlier, so it was in our secure storage area at the club – a location in the basement….

Bullshit and Someone’s Belief I Cared

Ironically, this is the comic I was sending to my dad while talking to my mom as I sat on my front porch enjoying the nice evening.  Yeah, that was a bad sentence.  It was ironic because while doing all of this, a man walked by the house, stopped, came back, then aggressively told me…

Productive – After I totally dropped the ball on something earlier this week, I decided I need to start using my subscription to Meistertask to manage my work better. I am my boss’s go-to manager in terms of getting shit done. Between that and the fact my team, despite their tenure at this company and…

At What Point Is It Insubordination?

During the long weekend of work a couple weeks ago, there were just a few things here and there happening that seemed to point to this: ​ I seem to pick up on subtle things sometimes that until it comes together that I’m not 100% sure of what is going on. During that weekend, communication…

Uncertain Isn’t that an odd emotion? Uncertain. I’m uncertain of how I’m feeling right now. Earlier this week, the foster kid unexpectedly announced they were leaving. (Forgive the "they" pronoun as well as the awkward wording as I’m trying to keep some degree of anonymity for the kid.) The foster kid decided a month ago…
