Good News! I just met with the owner of the local Rota bar, La Calabaza Mecanica, and he liked my stuff! So come April, my photos and collages will be hanging on walls for my first ever solo exposition!
I am so happy right now. A big hug to everyone who has helped me get this far. Your support is immeasurable.
¡Tengo buenas noticias! Ya he quedado con el dueño de La Calabaza Mecanica, uno de los bares mas populares aquí en Rota. Le gustan mucho mi obra de arte (fotos y collage). En Abril, pondré en las paredes de Calabaza mi primer exposición de arte!
Muchas gracias a todo que me han ayudado. Nunca podía hacerlo sin vosotros!
I have just recieved a letter from the school of the Art Institute of Chicago.
YES! I got the merit scholarship!
On to Berlin to celebrate.
2011, I’m ready for you!
VENGA YA! The iPhone really can do anything (and with location-based dating apps, it can even get you laid! …not that I would know anything about that).
This new app translates signs, LIVE. Point it to a sign in a foreign language (right now only available in Spanish), and it translates it to English, or the other way around! Without the internet! Can you believe we are alive in a time when this technology is possible?
OK, I learned something today. Can I go to bed now?
I absolutely love travelling. I think this was instilled to me at a young age. As a child, I never lived in one place for longer than two to three years. I am used to change, in fact, I embrace it.
So, as an adult, I’ve jumped at every chance to travel, move around, see new things and meet new people. I’ve been very fortunate that the Navy has allowed me plenty of these opportunities. Without a constant paycheck, I would not have been to do any of the places I’ve visited these past few years.
But it’s all coming to a close in six months. I won’t have that bimonthly paycheck, I won’t have security, or health insurance.
I thought my travel dreams were forever dashed, or tossed aside, or reduced to 1-week per year spans.
This new information just might be the key for me to continue traveling. It’s an intensive program and I’ll really have to be vigilant about my finances, but I think it’s possible.
So, to my friends around the world, we just might see each other again.
