SELF PORTRAIT THURSDAY!
Happy Thursday, friends. I sorta feel like I’m dressed like a waiter today. But it’s a pleasant morning. Let’s hope it stays that way.
Really the only thing on my mind is getting off work and going to Provincetown. I’m not leaving until really early Monday morning, but still—I still have the next couple days off to look forward to.
Gotta do some last minute framing tomorrow. I’d just been staring at this big box of frames for a couple days, reluctant to open it because “What if they’re broken?” or “What if they sent the wrong sizes or colors?” That kinda thing. I do think I’ve been stressing myself out over little things. I’m not as stressed as last week. Definitely not. My tensions have definitely been eased. I feel a little anxious about venturing into something new. And even though I may not come off as anxious in person, I can tell something is going on because I haven’t been feeling like working out. And there was this one day where I pretty much ate Caribbean pastries all day…
I hate complaining, though. I think it’s a very unsexy/unappealing thing to do.
In other news, I’m excited about my sister coming up for the weekend right when I get back from P-town. And my friend Andrea is coming for a week at the end of the month. I’m excited!
And now that I’m saying this, I think part of my feeling anxious is stemming from feeling excited. Feel excited about exhibiting the art I’ve been steadily working on all year. Also excited about having good people come visit. It’s hard to connect on a certain level with a lot of people in NYC. So, it’s nice to have that kind of energy around.
But maybe it’s just naive to expect to have a deeper connection with a lot of people. Maybe you really only get a handful of people in your life that you really connect with.
