No art this post just felt like telling you my week. On Sunday my shower broke and the family had to take baths for our visit to the in-laws for Mother's Day. On Monday I fixed the shower and did the dance of happiness. Tuesday I went into work an hour earlier and by two o"clock I was suffering from heat exhaustion, I was sent home to go to lunch and to get shorts, while on my way back I totaled my car in an accident with a mid-size semi. The guy was clearly going to turn right as I was going to turn left but as I went into the  intersection He choose to go straight as totaled my car. I should of just said I had the arrow as well, because the ass-hole was on his phone the whole time only stopping to see if I called the cops. Well I have been lucky because his truck drove right over my hood. He kept saying he was only going straight if that was the case I should be dead because he would have been going way too fast to stop in time. Three days before I was to start school  in Schaumburg for web design and this happens.

      I thought I would have to not start school even before I started but today the financial aid and admissions  dept. worked there magic to get it that I still get to take my online class for this summer semester and then in July take two classes and start making payments for the amount of money I would owe after the fasta loans paid the rest.. So I have from now to July to sell my car with the auctions help and hope that i can get help in finding a small compact car for a very small price. Maybe this is a good time to ask for a raise, well we shall see.
 Till next time.

Crayon drawings

Spent today drawing with my son with crayons and these are some of the drawings I did. I forgot how much fun drawing with crayons could be.


Goals Update 2.0

           Well it is now May and a lot of time has pasted from my last post. I have been neglectful of this site because I would look at it and see I haven't done anything  and it would make me NOT to want to do anything. Well this has to stop and it shall.

          Back in January I wrote about a list of goals. I had six, three short term goals and three long term goals.
It has taken me till now to almost complete just one of my short term goals of getting my office space in my house as a space just for me to have as a art studio. (Just last Thursday I finally finished building my new computer table and got it in the office. After I had it built I found out my hallway was too small. I had to take the desk apart and rebuilt it inside my office.) Well I have the computer desk in place and as the time of this writing I still have to put together my new art table that my father gave me. I must not let another four months go by before that gets done. I know I can't because of one of my long term goals. I wanted to go to Rock Valley College for graphic design and web design. This is now happening but at the Art Institute of Schaumburg. I'll be going for a year to get a diploma for a program that combines both a graphic design coarse and web design. I start May 16th, I am both excited and terrified for I am doing this for myself and for my family. Myself in that I NEED to learn a trade that will give me a outlet for my creative streak the makes me unhappy most days and for my family to give them a better life from a career that will better provide for them.

                Some of the other goals were to go and take classes in animation from an online school called and to take Stephen Silvers character design class from . I have always had a very hard time staying the coarse and seeing something through from start to finish. It has a lot to do with my ADD and now depression. Since I was three I had ADHD or Attention Deficit  Hyperactive Disorder. By the time I reached high school the hyperactivity left but the ADD stayed and Depression came in.

            So that's that, some days are better then others but I am working through it. I now know the for me writing down a clear road map of my goals is very important to keep me on track but to give my self  only one of the goals to work on. and then go back to the next after the first goal is completed. Computer desk built one goal completed.
Animation desk is next on the list. I have started goal one and in two weeks I'll be starting goal tree from my short term goals list. Looking back at my last goal update I seem so positive and focused I want that back and I believe by just moving forward I will get there. I'll post again about how things are going next week after my first week of classes to tell you how things are going.
