So here's the story:
I have an art degree. My mother warned me that I wouldn't be able to find a job after I graduated, but I was all like "Lay off mom, I do what I want. I'm an ARTIST." After I graduated I lived the high life in NYC working at an internship with International Arts Movement for a while, but then I got married and moved to Augusta, GA. Of course, what kind of job do you get with an art degree in a medium-sized, not overly cultured town if you don't want to teach?
My thought process was, "I like to work with clay. I like to make pots. I like bread. Bread is like clay- you knead it and form it and wait for awhile and then "fire" it. I will be a baker." I really liked the idea, so I presented myself at the only place in town that made bread, and they told me I could be a waitress and make dessert. I said okay.
This worked out well, because my diet consists of fruits, vegetables, grains (all that good stuff) and DESSERT. It's about 50/50, healthy/dessert. I've convinced myself that's ok, and please don't try to tell me otherwise. I eventually ditched the waitressing part and started making bread and now that's what I do- I make bread and dessert and screenprint paper goods and make other art.
This blog is my record, it proves to me and everyone else that yes, I am making things in my life! If you'd like to check out the art side of what I'm doing, skip on over to my other blog: The Hungry Fox.
(That's confusing, isn't it? The non-food blog is called the Hungry Fox. Well, I guess that's why he's hungry, there's no food there.)
Anyway, stick around and get your fixes here.
