I suppose that's what happens when you sleep all day :) But I needed to sleep so badly, and it was wonderful. Class wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. I felt bad that I was falling behind in my work, but I gotta stop feeling that way. Two weeks out of the studio, and stepping right back into it felt so wonderful, I couldn't believe I had been away for as long as I have! The moment I stepped in there was a fellow student's miniature salt kiln, and we engaged in conversation over it. I love talking geek over ceramics. *wants to build own raku kiln*
If there is anything I NEED to do for myself in the upcoming days, it's devoting some time to personal art making. I haven't touched a single ball of clay to make anything for myself since August. AUGUST! That was almost 2 months ago! I think I want to start a new creative challenge called "clay doodles." Take a 1lb ball of clay, and make SOMETHING, ANYTHING! Like doodling in a sketchbook, it's an exercise to keep myself involved with the material and explore new ideas with out being too serious. I'll start a goal of doing this once a week, doesn't sound bad, does it?
I'm sure I could alternate some of my "avoiding homework time" for "clay-doodle time." As long as I'm avoiding homework, might as well make it useful to me, right?
