i love being in my thirties because i am really beginning to figure myself out. i am getting more and more comfortable in my own skin and i don't live to impress anyone. you hear oprah say stuff like that a lot. how getting older is exciting because you become more of yourself (it would be even more exciting if i had her make-up team, but i really do see her point). i have finally put the pieces together and have learned what i love to do. the biggest problem has been figuring out how these things can coexist. in fact, it is documented here: http://homedaisy.blogspot.com/2006/06/sometimes.html.
well, tomorrow, i begin a new job. i will be teaching two design classes to middle and high school girls. i am so excited to be doing what i LOVE to do. this new venture is a gift and so is the friend who made it all possible. thank you!
i believe this is just a stepping stone to something bigger in our futures.
i will work only four hours a week, two days a week. i am excited to have yet another reason/excuse to shop at michaels, go antiquing, re-do a room or a piece of furniture, scrapbook a new technique, tour a home, play in my studio, or visit a blog for inspiration. all for the sake of research. i am also thrilled to have the title "design teacher." i think it gives me permission to dress a bit more eccentric. like those ballcaps and crocs i sport too often paired with my camo pants. i can just hear the principal under her breath, "well, that's the design teacher."
oh boy, i am so ready for this :) :)
