Things that are on my wall

Since we met, my BF and I have had a shared appreciation of shitty landscape paintings from Goodwill. Conservatively, I would say we've bought over 50 in the 5 years we've been dating. Almost all of them will get painted on by one of us in some way. This started with the below painting, which has a quote my bf said on shrooms once and I refuse to let him forget.

This is a place, man

We thought we had lost that first painting, so we made another (needs some touching up). We both kept one of them when we moved apart, and it feels nice to have them back together again.

Hausuuuuuu. One I made yesterday.

Things that children have said to me this week

I teach preschool now, which has been a good change of pace. Kids are weird.

Ian, age 2, likes hiding things/himself a lot. When I try and play along and ask "where did ____ go?", his response is always "anywhere!!". Deep kid.

Things I could do better

I went to an open mic last night. It's the first time I've played in public since I moved to Portland in December, and I fucking bombed. Kept forgetting the words, had some technical difficulties, played the wrong songs. Glad I signed up with a fake name.

Congratulations on bombing! I used to do stand up and I always did my best work after bombing. There's some kind of freedom around hitting rock bottom in front of a dozen people that can help make you fearless.

Though right now I'm sure it just feels shitty.
