I have my last deadline for my final project coming up in two weeks. I have to make 40+ clay vessels for an installation that will be my final piece and presented in my exhibition.

No sympathy will leave their lips but this response is understandable considering the situation and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t agree. I am worse than a pea brain. I am possibly the unluckiest person I know.

So for the rest of the day I will feel sorry for myself in the haven I call my bed. And maybe, just maybe, finish all this work before my deadline. Maybe, I’ll start tomorrow.
