heathery: adjective Of, relating to, or resembling heather.
I've decided to create this blog as a means of documenting the journey I plan to take in this new year. 2010 marks the beginning of my life without the distraction and obligation of school, and I am making it my mission to dig up and conquer projects and desires I have buried over the past 8 years. Formal school is awful in that it robs you of all desire to create because there is so much pressure and grade point average looming behind it. For the past 8 years I have been told by professors to pick a subject, pick a medium, when all I want to do is dabble in them all. When I graduated from high school I was certain I was going to be a writer. I wrote poetry, got into screenwriting, had a completed short and 38 pages of s script written when I just stopped. Life got complicated, I got anxious and without practice or passion the ability to write was lost. This forced me to find a new outlet, art, art was the easy choice, it's what comes natural to me, and this is what make it ideal for me to teach, art is me. But as much as I love art and teaching, I don't feel complete. I long to write, to create imagery and play with words. I feel that if I can find balance in both my outlets that I will be whole, a real Heather, who I'm suppose to be...we will see.
