I don't like my picture being taken. Or stopping reality to pose for one. Hence all the selfies. Big pet peeve. People doing that at concerts and the like. I'm romantic about ephemeral experiences that way. Despite my collector's instinct to gather and document. Maybe I'd like to live as an outside voyeur, watching but not leaving a trace of my self(ie). Just wanting to be present. Or maybe I'm just self conscious (most likely).
I'm an art school dropout, but I didn't stop making things... Or I did. For a long while. Trying again. Unlearning again. I paint, illustrate, used to take photos (still do occasionally, but not really in an art project way), and am trying my hand at sculpture and print making. I am also interested in woodworking, furniture and instrument (luthery) making. I do my painting at home and I have a small corner at my work (I'm a manufacturer at a small sign company) for my wood shop. I am an obsessive music collector and can usually find an appreciation for any music (or anything that makes a sound really, it just makes me happy).
Sometimes I think about going back to school, but my interests are too varied and I have no clue what to pick, I'm always learning new skills and hobbies.
I like the weird stuff.
Interesting Facts about Me!
My grandma was a correctional officer/guard and I went to an inmate operated daycare.
I dream about having a pet rabbit... Or Pygmy Goat.
I'm a neglectful house plant care taker, and in the past have made my own hydroponic systems to make things easier. They lasted longer till I neglected to refill the water. Kitchen herbs and cherry tomatoes!
I've brewed beer at home and want to do it again.
Lately (since moving) I walk home from work (50 min) every day. Noticable beer belly reduction! haha.
Didnt learn to ride a bike till i was about 22.
One summer I walked to kits beach every weekend (like 6am) morning to watch the crows play before people would arrive.
