There, I updated. Happy Stephanie?

I never thought my life would end up here, but it has. I've traded in my blank canvases for blank IACUC (Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee) forms. This part-time job as psycholgy lab director is giving me full-time responsibilities that are eating away at my creative energy. Don't get me wrong... I do like my job, I'm very interested in the research we do, and it's been a great experience so far. I just wish I knew how to make peace between the artist and the scientist in me, because right now they're at war. And the little creative weakling with the paint brush and beret is getting pummeled by the bad ass in the white lab coat.

Peace, I need peace. As Christ said, a house divided against itself can not stand. And if my two halves become any more divided, I just might collapse on a lab assistant, or something. Now I know how split-brain folks with no corpus callosum feel. Ugh.


I think that's why I finally settled on web design as my career choice - it let me combine my arty side with my computery nerdy side. Maybe you can make illustrations for science books LOL :)

for me, the side of me that shows small children how to make crappy ugly webpages with FrontPage (eww) is beating to death the PHP programmer who yearns to be ShanBlogging.

Sorry to see you go, Jen. It kinda sucks the cam portal thing didn't work out, but if you ever need a host for anything else, let me know, k?

I understand the whole turmoil thing....but embrace it. There is enough time to do both. hey there are a lot of scientists around that need "science" related artwork in their offices!!-- Find your market!!:) - A
