Weaving Memories, Resignation, Job hunting and ATC creating

So it’s been a while. I’m not sure if I’ve really been in a ‘place’ to blog over the past week – my brain has been preparing for handing in my notice! Which is now done. I leave teaching on February 27th – a huge decision – but the right one.

I’m now looking for jobs – obviously. I’ve found loads I’m interested in but it’s just getting my arse in gear and applying. I’m also looking at Fellowships – you never know! It’s all very exciting and I’m just hoping that it all works out – eventually.

Yesterday Mart and I went to the V&A museum of Childhood – I LOVE that place. I’m sure it’s more fun for adults than children as you are constantly exclaiming ‘I had that …’ and ‘oh my god, I REMEMBER that’ or ‘I always wanted that!’. I took loads of photos but I have to download them as yet – and I also have about 500 photos from Wednesday night (Amanda Palmer) and about 300 shots from Thursday night (Officer Kicks) to edit. I’ll sort out a couple later though and post them here – probably of scary dolls as most of the dolls were indeed, immensely scary!

I also signed up for the last place on this course – called Weaving Memories.ย  Could be interesting ๐Ÿ™‚

Before we went to the museum we went to a vegetarian and vegan cafe called The Gallery. I had THE most YUMMY Tofu burger with the most stunning mushy peas on the side possible! I was in munching heaven! I totally recommend it. They also were exhibiting work by Lighthouse Art. I really liked a lot of it – reminds me of Zettiology ๐Ÿ™‚

Talking of Zettiology – I did my first Zettis for MAMMA this week:

I was fairly pleased with them – although I need to get a better white pen!


sometimes I get easily confused …

and I read too much into what people say or do.

I usually end up twisting myself into little knots worrying about what I’ve said, or what I’ve done, or what I haven’t said or what I haven’t done.ย  There are people in my life that I care too much about; and I care too much about what they think.

I don’t ever really want to get too personal here – but that’s it.ย  I care too freakin’ much.

I need to get well – I really do.ย  I’m so bored of being sick.
My first attempt at an ‘Art Journal’ – see my page here on Teesha Moore for one of my influences!

One Thing At a Time

Brian sent me links to the Dresden Dolls show at the Inaugeration – unfortunately they’ve all been removed by the looks of things, ooooh no they haven’t, they’re there again – HOORAH! {

Cover of War Pigs – FUCKING LOVE IT:

Good Day – OH YES ๐Ÿ™‚

Cover of Blueprint – by Fugazi – such an awesome track – LOVE THIS:

Ahhhh … makes me smile ๐Ÿ™‚

Only a couple of weeks to go until Amanda Palmer plays at the Electric Ballroom – wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee … and then a few more months until World/Inferno hopefully come back to the UK … fingers crossed.

I need to find another couple of bands to salivate over! ha ha.


Pub toilets…

are a constant source of amusement to me.ย  I think it’s sad when they’re lacking in graffiti and are completely sanitised.ย  Don’t get me wrong, I like them to be clean (e.g. sans dirtyness) but I do like a bit ofย  ‘on toilet reading’ to do while I’m in there – especially as I have a real problem with weeing in public places.

Occasionally, usually when I’m drunk, I get my mobile out and take photos of the walls in pub toilets – especially if something catches my eye.

I’ve also been guilty of adding to the scribbles (in places where scribbles are already apparent – but I guess you got that as I said I ‘added’ to the scribbles) and photographing my results … guess which ones are mine!
