Hello again, I hope you are having an awesome day. Guess what? I HAVE NEWS!!! YES!! I never would have guessed how lucky this beautiful building would turn out to be for me. See, I have been attending this school since summer 2017 and well, to be honest, I never took the time to visit the Palmetto Center for the Arts on campus UNTIL the last day of class this spring. Our very ecclectic Ethics Professor, Dr. Young de Cantu, insisted we take a stroll over to take glimpse of some the Art that was on display. It was incredible, so much talent, everything from fashion design, to traditional painting, sculpture, woodwork and Metal Art was there. All very impressive and all done by the students. As a matter of fact, most all of the pieces on display were for sale (I can’t even afford to finger paint on my current budget..lol). I will repeat, IT WAS AMAZING.
It was while we were on that little stroll that I made the decision to give my phone number to a woman. This is something that I haven’t done in, well, forever. I stole a moment to stroll next to her and strike up a brief conversation and quickly realized that we had ALOT in common. I am a few years older than her, but honestly, my intentions were and still are for us to be great friends. I am extremely short on the friend front and jump at the opportunity to add one every chance I get. Those chances are few and fleeting because I am a pretty shy guy with very low self esteem. ANYWAYS, I will to delve into more detail about my relationship status and the collapse of my 22 year marriage in another post. I will say that we have been seperated with a divorce pending for 4 years now and believe it or not My Ex is my best friend. We are way way way better friends now than we were for the majority of our marriage and we both love our relationship. I’m rambling.. sorry, I will definetly do that from time to time. I am not a professional, well anything, lol, certainly not a writer or blogger.
Back to what I was saying, so I gave this woman, we will call her Jean Grey for now because I do not have her permission to print her name, and we have become fast friends. I am so happy that we took that trip. BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!!
I mentioned in an earlier post that I applied for Work-Study at school in order to generate some much needed income. I GOT A CALL TO WORK IN THAT VERY SAME BUILDING!! I am a Science Major, I really would like to end my working carreer as a teacher, or PRECEPTOR (BOO-YAA PROFESSOR CANTU)!! (Sorry, I had too.) because when you get to know me (or if you already do), you know I am just a big kid. Perhaps I should rephrase that; I am juvenile, immature, irresponsible and love fart jokes. That being said, I am also caring and deeply commited to those I care for and humble. I love telling stories and would love to gain an audience with a room full of kids that would have no choice but listen to what I have to say (evil laugh).. In all seriousness, I believe it would be a good fit for me and it is something I feel pretty passionate about.
In closing, I would very much like to thank whoever is reading this and of course you, MR, PALMETTO CENTER FOR THE ARTS. Thanks to you, I had the courage to put myself out there and connect with Jean (smirky face), and make an exceptional friend and now you will be providing me with a small source of income so that I will be able to eat and maintain my chisled hour-glass muscular frame (insert lying emoji here..lol). Hope everyone has a great day, I will talk again with you very soon.
