Random Tid Bits

I's been a few weeks, since I've written one of these posts.
  1. I've been working my ass butt off to create an art website. It's finally for the most part done! It's up, but it may possibly be glitchy for a day because we (Travis helped) just added the domain to it. Please check it out, and tell me if you see anything that looks odd.

  2. Most independent colleges are struggling now a days. Most universities and community colleges are fine. I've been worried about employment, so I'm A) Working on an art website. B) Baking Christmas cookies. C) Wrapping packages. D) Writing an artist proposal/grant. E) Working on the student's final grades. Finals are next week. F) Absorbed in this case: Finding Sydney Loofe

  3. There's always some case I get hung up on. I don't know why I care so much about someone, or a situation I'm not a part of. The Sydney Loofe case is about a girl that went on a Tinder date. She ended up disappearing after their 2nd date. 2 people put up online videos posting their side to the story, but they hadn't even talked to the cops yet. They just found who they think is Sydney's body. I've been telling my students about dating safety. When you're young, you think you can do just about anything.  

  4. That cyst on my forehead that I was trying to treat with apple cider vinegar never did go away. I called a dermatologist, got in, only to find out that he won't remove it. It's too close to nerves. If the nerves are hit I can be paralyzed on part of my face. A surgeon was called. I can't get in until February. I've already hit my deductible this year. I'm scared and annoyed. 

  5. I have one more treatment I'm going to try for my forehead. My ENT doctor said to try hot packs for 3 or 4 days. I've been in school, so I haven't really been able to try that. Then a coworker was telling me about bread poultice. Have you ever heard about poultice? My coworker said his grandma used this technique a lot. You just wet bread with milk, add salt, and attach it to wherever you have something you want something to come out of your body. I figure it won't hurt. I'm willing to try these 2 things, while the students are on break.

I am so glad that I never had to date. I met Jason when we were just kids, so dating is a weird concept for me. I really hope that my girls also find their life partners young and don't have to rely on online dating. So many weirdos out there for sure. I hadn't heard about this case until you posted it. It's very sad :(

Good luck with the bread poultice. I never heard of that either, but I am intrigued to learn how it works for you.

Oh, and also I really like your art website. It looks like it's coming together quite beautifully!

I've looked at your website and the photos come up beautifully. High definition and can see the textures of your work too which I like. But I noticed that you can easily download the pics?

Not sure if you mind but I'd prefer if people don't download your art that easily and maybe reproduce it or copy it to somewhere without your knowledge especially since you don't have a watermark or signature on them.

I think the website looks great and you've got some awesome pieces on there.
