Could have put some off for the morning, but FUCK THAT.
Tomorrow I can like.. go get coffee and breakfast and fuck around while other people finish glazing.
And if she says my stuff doesn’t get to be first in line for the kiln because I didn’t make the wet deadline… imma be mad. I worked really hard this weekend to get EVERYTHING ready to go for FIRST thing Monday morning.
Okay now I have to clean up a little and get to bed.
Left most of my glazing for this weekend… I made like 25+ pots this term plus two large-ish peices. I’ve been in the studio since 8 AM, taking only short breaks and I’m maaybe halfway done.
My prof. told me “glazing takes seven times longer than you think it should.” No one has ever said anything more accurate. And I knew it when she said it.
So I knew this weekend would be rough but like… ECH.
Feminist Art Friday Feature: Guerrilla Girls
The Guerrilla Girls are an anonymous group of feminists who work to combat sexism and racism in art. The group was started in response to the 1984 Museum of Modern Art exhibition, An International Survey of Painting and Sculpture that was supposed to act as a summary of the most significant contemporary work from around the world. However, the show, which consisted of 169 artists, had an uncompromisingly Western white-male perspective. Of the 169 artists featured in the exhibition, only 13 were women, none were people of color, and nobody was featured from outside of Europe or the US. To add insult to injury, the show’s curator, Kynaston McShine, said that any artist who wasn’t a part of he show should rethink “his” career. And so it began.
Since, the Guerrilla Girls have become well-known for confronting and fighting against oppression in the art world. They continue to be a vocal force in feminist activism.

I got ~two hours of sleep and poked myself in the eye with my eyeliner this morning.
Semi-successfully practiced (in front of my prof.) the presentation I’m supposed to be giving this afternoon.
I have another meeting 11:30-12:15 ish and class 1-4.
Then I have to spend the next 14324 hours glazing.
I am so done.
it bothers me a lot when people say “don’t fight [insert name of mental illness or disorder]! if you say that you are, you’re ableist!”
because A) that’s stupid as fuck and B) do people not realize that mental illness can ruin a person’s life and many mental and developmental disorders make it impossible for certain people with them to function independently? i’m not talking about high-functioning kids with asperger’s who have trouble with social cues. i’m talking about my cousin who is 50 years old and has 24-hour care and can’t use a toilet
