A fork in the road with a side of short cut. Choices.......

Hello friends!  It's been quite some time, hasn't it? 

Have you ever had a time in your life where you are down on your luck, you go to sleep all gloomy and sad, then the next day the universe surprises you with a ton of news, opportunities, and an insane amount of suspicion. 

A couple of weeks ago I had just that.  Luckily it was before April Fool's Day or I would have just blamed it on that and went about my day. 

It was a Tuesday and I had a full day of things to do. 

Over coffee I was given an opportunity to make my dream a reality.  BAM!
[Now comes the teaser part.  It's a super secret project that I can't reveal the details of JUST yet but I am hoping in the next few months, I will be able to share!!!]

I was offered a teaching gig.  BAM!
[I have been here a year and some odd months and have been trying my hardest to catch a break.  If you don't know, I am an art teacher (with a BLOG) and just couldn't catch a break. Well this day I did!]

Then I got offered a job to pretty much live on land and have a house built, have the run of a LARGE studio and community center, and pretty much live the organic farm life about 10 minutes from the city. BAM! BAM! BAM!

So, in one day I had three paths to travel down. 
1 - A young business entrepreneur with my better half and an awesome partner.
2 - A middle class teaching gig being a kooky art teacher.
3 - Make my dream of living on a commune making art all day a reality. 

Surreal.  I guess I have some choices ahead of me!

Now, I am back on track and getting ready to start a teaching gig and working on my super secret project.  My days go by much too fast but I would rather live this roller coaster life than sit around bored. 

Only boring people get bored.  Get to livin'!!!!

I hope all of you have been enjoying life!!!
