So you may have been wondering,

"Gurl, You been a DA member for 7 years. you ain't done a thing since 2009. Where you been at?"

As of this Sunday, I will be graduating from East West College of the Healing Arts. I have studied an 800-hour massage therapy program over the course of 1.25 years. I have learned more about myself and been humbled by the people who have been present and have taught me. Classmates, teachers, people I met. A very transformative time.

The very nature of touch is an interesting subject. I didn't think I really had body image issues until I had people lay their hands on my abdomen. It was empowering in the client role for me to be able to say no to anything they were doing if I wasn't comfortable with it. Sometimes things would change by the day.

My understanding of how hard my body has to work to coordinate everything together is amazing. I understand and love my body for it.

I've been in an art slump. I never got out of it. I've started crocheting an afghan blanket out of scraps and random skiens i was donated or had from before. I started it when i started school, and I'd guess it's way too long but wide enough to cover a twin sized bed. This has been my creative project.

I don't have the money to do film photography right now. My camera capabilities are limited to my cell phone at this point. My laptop has been broken the last 4 months and i only recently got myself a netbook thanks to a friend of mine. I have been so far out of the art world.

I was offered a job over at Artist's Repertory Theatre for a stage hand position. I gave them my resume 1.5 years ago when i first had moved to Portland. They still remembered me. Not only that, but they offered me something far beyond what any other theatre had for my skills. I was honored, but i was unable to take the job due to working 2 jobs already and i have prior commitments with them.

Currently, In order to raise money to take care of my state boards and Licensing BS, I am a pizza delivery driver and also run a concession stand out of the Rose Garden Arena where the Portland Trail Blazers play.

Also, the Portland Winterhawks are 1 round away from being 3-year Western Conference Champions in the WHL. I'm there for those too. It's nice to have such different varieties of work, ESPECIALLY when i was doing concurrent 2 jobs w/ school.

I'm doing well. Maybe now that i have a chance to calm down again, maybe i'll have more time. Just wanted you all to know i didn't die.

Tl;dr:
I moved, i made friends, i graduated massage school, on way to get my occupational license.
