In other news, great advances have been made in the UG area. I took some MUCH needed vacation time last week and got some good studio things accomplished. I cannot wait until I'm finished. Doing all of these extracurricular things while balancing life has not been an easy task, but I feel that it has prepared me to devote my time more evenly between work, studio work, and personal time. I cherish the time I spend in my studio and with my family more because I have a set schedule when I can get things done. There's been a big learning curve in realizing how to handle stress. I have to remind myself now and then that things will get accomplished and I shouldn't overreact. If they don't, then they won't, but that's okay. I need to take with me what knowledge I can gain from the experience, hope I did my best, and move forward.
Whew, enough serious time! I just looked up at the image again and I really can't wait to get my cup. :)
