At some point in every blogger’s writing career, they begin a post with, “I know it’s been a while since my last post.” I’d hate to let the internet down if I didn’t throw my hat into the ring so…
I know it’s been a while since my last post.
I’ve managed to snag a 5 day weekend. Today was just day 1. Typically when I take long vacations like this, I tend to spend the first day decompressing, doing nothing but sleep, eat and relax. But not today. Today I decided to give myself a schedule to follow, and one of the things on my schedule was to go to an art studio and create something in glass fusion.
I’ve been so stoked about this since I decided to do it. I told a couple people, and while they were generally excited for me, it was usually followed by, “Who are you going with?”
It didn’t bother me that people would assume I would only be able to do things if I had a partner. Generally most people are that way I think. Still it kinda makes me wonder: what’s so wrong about doing something by yourself?
I’m not sure why anyone would think that time by yourself isn’t quality time. You’re still doing something fun, it just happens to be on your own. I’ve done those social painting classes before and it was fun, but I think I was more interested in being social than really creating a piece of artwork. In this case, I was wanting to learn a new medium, so yeah I preferred to not be distracted. And well, look at what I got out of it.
