I hate to admit that I’ve been feeling kind of lame recently because I’ll be turning 27 in a few days. I usually embrace it but the thought of being this close to 30 is really weird.
I’m feeling a lot better right now though. A part of getting older is being aware of the fact that there’s generations behind you learning what you just got through learning. Being able to nudge those kids in a decent direction or least provide some hints is just so damn rewarding especially when they want to hear what you have to say. I forget that I’m an adult sometimes.
A family friend wanted me to talk to her 15 year old niece about my experiences with the art world and to advise her. Although I’m not sure if I was the correct person to come to it was still so nice to see someone so young and passionate about art — takes me back.
