From the Journal of Ubaldo Piangi, translated from its original Italian.
Some people ask me why. They ask me why I put up with her anger, her fierceness, her yelling, her screaming, her tantrums. I just look at them and smile, and ask them: "Put up with what?"
And that's exactly how I feel. Put up with what? Put up with her smile? Put up with her laughter? Put up with her fear? Put up with her joy? Put up with her sadness? Put up with her love? Put up with her?
I see the other things that she directs at people, the lashing words and biting remarks and haughty looks. And I understand that they put up with her. But I have never had that sort of harshness directed at me. She may yell from time to time, but it has not been directed at me. It will be directed at the manager or the stage hands or the ballet rats or the conductor, but they will not hear it. I will hear it, but it is not directed at me. And I don't mind listening, hearing her pour out all her frustrations in a long, ang

Y'all, I am the absolute fucking worst at keeping promises, specifically those I make to myself. I should be forbidden from making resolutions. I never keep them, except for that one time in 2010 (dear lord was it really that long ago?), but experience has since taught me that that was more of an outlier than an omen of productivity to come.

So what am I doing here? Basically just griping about my lack of self-discipline, in an exercise truly demonstrative of the problem considering what I really ought to be doing right now is writing a paper. I feel like there's a literary term for this situation, but it escapes me and to look it up would clearly be procrastinating.

Right, well, as a sort of quarterly art goal check-in, I'll note the following:
  1. Monthly gallery updates obviously haven't been happening, so that one's shot.
  2. Sketchbook Sunday has been! I think I've missed five or six so far, but I've made them all up later in the week and the date stands, so we're on track.
  3. I honestly completely forgot about the portrait thing. I've done a lot of sketches of people, but no quality finished products - the closest I've gotten so far is an experimental pencil pop-art sketch of Hannah Arendt, which is technically finished but not realism; consequently I'm not yet sure if it counts. Apart from that I've been sketching... OCs, I guess? Fairly realistic faces but not anyone in particular, and I'm undecided on their standing for this tally as well.
Re: the last point, I am going (against all reason, as a creature of perennial naive optimism desperately hopeful she will accomplish something and meet a goal some day despite all lived experience suggesting the contrary) to set a short-term goal: before the end of the summer, I will finish both the Arendt portrait I've been working on since last summer and the Catherine Tate portrait I'd started even before that and now haven't touched in probably over a year. I AM GOING TO FINISH WHAT I STARTED GOD DAMNIT.

Hopefully that includes this paper. Right then - back to work!
