So I had what felt like a million projects to be glazed this week so even though I threw one bowl and one mug, it still didn't feel like I got as much done this week. Additionally my ability to make art was somewhat hindered by the kiln catching fire on Thursday and the subsequent closing of the ceramics room on Friday. However I am one of the lucky ones who bagged up their projects on Thursday and therefore neither the bowl or the almost finished mug (pictured) will be ruined come Monday. Thank goodness. So this mug I feel as though I should explain. If you can't read it it says, "should I kill myself or drink another cup of coffee?" -2K14. I realize how morbid this quote is but in my defense it's supposed to be a tad ironic. The 2k14 is my best friend Maile and my way of writing 2014 when we're trying to be ironic and this quote, however weird and depressing... Sort of describes how we feel day to day. The stres of AP classes and college deadlines paired with strong senioritis, life is too hard to handle and we just constantly take breaks to drink coffee and escape from pressure. So don't be sad! Have some coffee! And tip your firemen!
