Art Stuff and Productivity

I have discovered that I am far more productive when I have a busy life. I have done more in the last two days than I did in my entire week off. I've finished two paintings and contemplated starting others. I'm having trouble thinking of a subject, unfortunately. But, I bought new brushes today and they make me happy. :-)

I miss my scanner. It is very annoying to not be able to scan art -- though probably I could go and scan photos and paintings downstairs in the computer lab, but that is just a lot of time that I'm too lazy to spend.

I learned how to do PCR today. It is extremely difficult with no depth perception -- mostly because my usual methods of compensation do not work so well. When a piece of glass is separating me from the PCR tubes, I cannot very well lean over them to be sure of what I am seeing and sure of where my pipette is. But, slowly, I am learning to compensate. Learning to percieve depth in a different way, from visual cues, just as I did with driving three years ago.

I turn 19 tomorrow. I am nearly finished with my teenage years -- the years when I have an excuse for being random, dreamy and misdirected, and the years when nobody expects great things of me. Although I expect great things of myself, naturally. But I am happy to be turning 19 because it brings me a year closer to 21. And this is good since my friends are for the most part older than me, and being the one who cannot drink (legally) or cannot go to certain places, certain bars and certain clubs creates an artificial age distinction between my friends and I. (Since I am a firm believer in age being mental more than physical once a person has reached physical maturity).
