I'm really quite a serious person...really I am. The voice of reason, the responsible one. The girl who likes all her glasses and mugs in the cupboard to match, and line up just so...who likes all her clothes hanging in her closet to face the same direction (they don't always, but I LIKE them to).
A girl who's electives in her last year of High School were advanced Chemistry and Art, who always made honor roll yet was sent to the principal's office on several occasions for dress code infractions, and caught skipping class on numerous occasions.
The art student who avoided taking herself too seriously just in case someone else might try to do the same.
Being creative has always been a huge part of who I am. I've always known there was no getting away from it, and really, I never wanted to. Sure I could have studied to be an engineer like dad wanted me to. I did end up working in telecommunications, and managing large customer accounts. I was the interface with the customer, representing teams of engineers, installers and technicians (all this after getting my Bachelors degree in Art History and Studio Art of course).
I have never felt comfortable calling myself an artist.
But I am.
I am all those things, and definitely goofy...
