rain or shine...

so my drafting professor was impressed with how "hard core" (his exact words) i was about attending the class this morning with my very large wooden board (2 ft x 3ft... functioning as a make-shift drafting table on my lounge chair in the back of the room)... even more so that i did it in the pouring rain.  there is one other person trying to stick it out to get added to the class as well but, he's a teenager (i'm not kidding.  i think he is 19), he didn't show up with a big piece of wood (and was shocked that i did) and i really doubt he will have the same staying power i do.  i'm just sayin'....

slightly off topic but worth a mention... recently a gay boy friend (any self respecting straight gal needs at least one!) asked me how i have managed to look so put together during this transitional period.  his words were "i'm sure you've had to cut back and i am amazed that you look just as fabulous as you did when you had a job."  well, i explained to him that i fired my old, more expensive, hairdresser shortly after i lost my job and have directed my newer cheaper hairdresser to cut and color my hair in a way that lasts an extra month or so,  i now paint my own nails (those $10 manicures add up), keep my accessories up to date (i'm telling you, great accessories cost very little to update an outfit and go a long way!), and i am close to perfecting the art of smiling and showing minimal wrinkles (not that i ever tried botox before ;-) but it is definitely not in the "finding myself" budget these days... i've been practicing the "new" smile in my mirror ...).  and the biggest part is i probably don't look nearly as stressed out and unhappy as i did before....

until next week....

p.s. see below image of my large board for drafting class as well as the tube that will house my amazing (i hope!)  drawings!
