School starting back
In honor of that, here are some pages from a calendar swap I did last year. I've not really felt artistic lately with my head all stopped up and been keeping pretty busy besides. For the swap I had the month of September, so I ended up doing my pages mostly about school, even though most start back in August. Artistic license I guess you could say. When I was young, September was the month you associated with school. I still remember the butterflies I felt in my stomach every year when that time neared. I don't know if I really enjoyed learning that much, which I do, or if it was a combination of that and the excitement and nervousness over the possibilities of a new year. Do you remember the innocence of the years before you started feeling peer pressure? How you were just "you" and that was all there was to that. You didn't worry about whether that was good enough for anybody else. Isn't it funny how you return to that way of thinking when you get older? Too bad we waste all those years and time on all that junk. Hooray for those who are able to remain true to themselves. Well, my little bit of philosophizing for today, lol!
