This was the ONE day I had figured out when the theme days were posted…then I changed it at the last minute.
I figured it was a good day to dig out some college stuff. I don’t get to wear it very often, as when we do football or team days, or whatever, outside of homecoming week that allow the teachers to wear jeans, I still don’t get to wear my MMC (now MMU) gear.
They started to limit our options. First, it could be anything , any college/university. Then it was limited to the major private and public schools, mostly in our state, though there are a couple of exceptions. Now, it’s only certain ones of those.
The outfit was all set out; I usually do this the night before, but I had had to dig out the gear last weekend. (A basketball jersey and warm up jacket I got at an athletic sale.) This morning – 6am – I realized: What is the only team I ever tune in to watch and cheer on? And what game did I ever attend back in college? (Ok, I saw, like, half a volleyball game once.)
Don’t get me wrong. I respect sports; I’m just not into them.
Answer: Team USA, so this very simple sketch is in honor of today’s outfit, which involved a lot of red/white/blue and a lot of stars and sparkle.
Yes, I am older than 12, and I don’t want to insult 12-year-olds. So many of t hem are WAY more artistically talented than I can ever hope to be. But I accept this sketch for what it is. Remember. I suck at art, and I’m working to build and get better by practicing every day. This blog is to keep me going and hold myself accountable to that daily goal.
