well, it's been about a month since I've written.
The gray reality of living in Olympia is setting in...although it feels more like I'm simply losing the battle of denying it. Either way, I'm here. MIT as well do something with it I guess.
In February I interviewed deeply for a job at the kids museum here only to get oddly strung along (after several in depth interviews) only to be ghosted on.
I went to Reno for a week and hung out with friends and family. Got to play with my little Wybear and see what my girlfriends have been up to. Before I got home I had this deep feeling of FOMO and panic that the world there was gonna forget me, move on, and evolve sans Mallory.
thats not the case at all. If anything, it gave me a chance to see and experience how slowly things do move in Reno and that left me feeling anything but left behind.
I feel like a woman with no tribe. A few toes in Reno, a few toes in Olympia sort of awkwardly balancing, reluctant to put my weight down.
I wont be able to hold this pose for long and that's probably a good thing.
through word of Gallery Boom I was able to land an interview as a ceramicists assistant, private studio, commercial work, including a sales position at the local farmers market.
it seems promising. We've worked together one day so far and hit it off wildly. I imagine I'm going to learn a lot from this partnership.
Ive also gotten my work into a new venue--Cascadia Homebrew. It's a little muggy home brew spot that caters to all ages shows, live music, beer enthusiasts, etc. I'm hanging work today.
Here is a peek;
and this will conclude the driest, most unfunny, completely factual month update ever.
where i'll post the in's, out's, tween's, and twixt's of my world of art mixed with pictures, links, opinions, and rants. (oh, and curse words. lots of curse words)
