Those are by Blake Loosli. (I added in the lovechild business -- it's true!) Charlotte introduced me to him. Love his work! I'm trying to find more artists I like. I don't know enough to name drop at all, which seems to be popular at MCAD.
Today I started looking into Private Music Schools. I know -- it's scary; it's not MCAD. It's not that I don't like MCAD, it's just I don't know if I like music more. I miss it on a daily basis. I feel like I want to try it on for size and see if it's where I truly belong.
Thus I emailed my high school band director and one of the other teachers I had who specialized in trombone. I want to study classical AND jazz. I can't imagine choosing between the two. If I REALLY had to, I suppose I'd pick jazz, simply because I adore the bass trombone and it's crazy fun parts in jazz music.
I feel like it's one of those things I'm always going to wonder about. Like I'll always wish I tried. If anything, I can come back to MCAD. No big deal. I'll be a semester or a year behind my peers, but that doesn't really matter. But at least then I'll KNOW.
I think to myself, "Self, you do art now, but you can't live without music. If you did music now, you could probably live without art." Now I feel like that's saying a lot. All my art projects seem to involve music somehow. I drew twelve tambourines for my Drawing Final. I made a trumpet out of foam for 3D. I did multiple sound pieces for Media and 2D.
I'm so indecisive right now.
I sat in my pjs the entire day, in this chair, on the computer. I did write my autobiography finally. And spackled and glue my trumpet more. I was more profitable than yesterday, in a sense. I love that I can be in my pjs all day and it doesn't matter.
In the words of my grandma,
