Spring Weather: Upside Downside.
The Upside:Well It Finally happened, spring baby! Sunshine like a blast of love and temps in the 40's holy cow!
The downside: The kids were as apathetic, unfocused and plain bad today as they were good yesterday.
The Upside: The weather was as amazing today as it was crap yesterday.
The downside: The snow melted exposing all of my neighbor's dog "Sweet Journey's" Shat piles.
The Upside: I had an excuse to get out the bad ass shovel and practice modeling for a Sears catalog.
The Downside: I had to shovel a whole bunch of snow into the newly forming river crossing to make a frozen snowbridge dam that would enable me to get to my porch.
The Upside: I love shoveling. It was beautiful. I like wearing sunglasses. I like rubber boots. And the modeling agent for Sears called, I got an audition in June when I get back to Washington.
The Downside: No matter how much shoveling I did the snow is still gonna melt and more piles of "Sweet" crap will appear.
The Upside: I get to take out the frustrations of a flawed rural education system overtaking the native culture of Alaska on piles of Beagle shat and snowmelt rivers (an acceptable way of letting anger go in my opinion).
The downside: There is no snow pile large enough to quench my deep deep frustrations.
The Upside: There are some pretty big ones and they are great for ice sculpting.
The Downside: They melt on their own.
The Upside: Melting is kinda of getting a new block of marble or clay
The Downside: Kids knock over my sculptures.
The Upside: Some kids think "Man what is that" before they do and that is the point of art in my opinion.
THE UPPEST UPSIDE OF THEM ALL: BEING OUTSIDE IN THE SUN LOVING LIFE, BEING USEFUL, BEING CREATIVE, AND LIVING IN THE MOMENT!!!!!!!!!!
