Just another day.

"Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday, dear Dean. Happy Birthday to you."

I turn 34 today.

Thankfully the day was over before I knew it, as I don't celebrate my birthdays.

It's a rather sad and disappointing time when I turn another year older but still still not where I want to be in life.

At least I only had to work one job today so I got to sleep in this morning. Thank God, I needed the rest.

All in all, today was uneventful and nothing special...just another day.

Life getting in the way.

Life n. The physical, mental, and spiritual experiences that constitute existence.

I used to be an artist named Dean Grey. Now I've tucked him away.

Sometimes life gets in the way of our dreams and this is one of those times.

Most days it feels like I just go through the motions--like there's this disconnect looming over me. Or maybe it's just art withdrawal symptoms.

I've been taking on more hours at both of my jobs lately, which leaves little room for anything else.

The last time I drew or painted was back in January...almost four months ago. Much too long, especially when over a decade ago, I used to draw and paint on a daily basis.

But on the bright side, I met someone. We've been quietly dating for two months and we're taking things slowly. What little free time I do have has been spent with him.

And while I'm thankful to have him and be working, I'm hoping one day life will be in sync with my creative endeavors again.

One day Dean Grey will return...I just don't think it'll be anytime soon.

Grey wearing brown.

It's simple and neutral in color yet crafted with care. A chocolate-colored work of art!

One of my coworkers recently made me a scarf out of the blue. This'll be the third one I've received so far by someone at work.

What do you think?

Even though spring is officially here, it's been chilly enough for me to wear it out a few times.

How kind to spend her free-time making this for me.

Knit-wear RULES!!

Thank you, Mae! It's lovely!!
