Comic Relief?

Comic Relief?

I went to an open house at the Cornish School of the Arts campus this weekend. It started at 9:30 a.m. and finished up around 2 p.m. There was lots of information about the courses offered and campus life. The Interior Architecture course I’m interested in covers a lot more than I thought it would.

That’s fine with me.

I just finished up another drawing for my portfolio. I want to have 10. This one makes 6, after a few touch ups.

When the tour was over a lady who knows my father’s side of the family talked to me. She said it surprised her I was going to Art School when most of my family she knows are in the business sector.

I told her I’m used to building and making things, what was I supposed to really do in an office? I didn’t know if she was family so I was polite, she was too.

Someone turned on the TV this morning and there was a lady preaching instead of the news. I thought it was Sunday again. Then I remembered it’s almost Easter. For those of you out there with a Bible thumping parent that means it’s time to go to church again. At least it will be in a couple of weeks. 

I need to check a calendar.

I was reading an article in my email about defining your blog for some kind of niche to get good at marketing yourself.

I blog to stay busy in my down time. It’s a nice hobby for me. Is there some kind of niche for my writing? The article made me wonder if I’m becoming a better writer or if I’m just some comic relief guy.

It doesn’t matter because I like blogging in my spare time. I hope everyone out there does something they like, even if it is just for comic relief!
