A Bleu Day

I called in sick to work yesterday because I was feeling bleu. I went to the art museum and then went for a skate along the waterfront. If my legs were like machines, I would have pushed myself towards infinity and never came back.

you paint with words and you're a creative writer? ...and you're good at math... how cool!

I am indeed an artist - though I paint with words......*marvels at the guru-like simplicity*. I guess I do know, or at least I'm narrowing it down too. It's weird, I'm more left-brained than right brained, and I soak up math like a sponge... and yet I find myself increasingly drawn to the creative.

sound like you know. i feel that i'm on the verge of resolution.<br />

i've heard about deviantart. i've got a couple of aquaintances on that site. it's quite lovely-- lots of great art. <br />

are you an artist, SilverandIce?

haha, I'm in a similar place - not quite sure where I want to go either, and the main job that I have now is sucking my soul dry.<br />

I'm not sure what kind of art you're interested in, but I know that http://www.deviantart.com/ is a good site for artists that are just getting started.

isn't that the truth, SilverandIce... the confusing part is narrowing it down... i know that it will be art-related...

The first step in moving forward is figuring out where you want to go.

I'm thinking about my job and how it doesn't fit... conflicted because I should be grateful to even have one... miserable because I don't like the culture of negativity that pervades my workplace... the back-stabbing, the lack of direct communication... feeling unappreciated...unsure where I fit in. It's just that, I don't fit in.<br />

I don't want to dwell on that. I want to think about what I can do to make it better... how I can move forward. What can I do to go towards something that I love? Those are the thoughts that will keep me sane.
