cut

bad news on the job front. the pre-college program for at-risk students i have been working at has been cut from the organization's budget. this is sad not only because it means i have to job hunt/interview for new jobs (the most draining of tasks, i think), but also because the population of students i have been working with will likely fall through the cracks without the structure and skills given to them in this therapeutic program. i know the decision to cut the program boils down to money, and i hate when i am faced with that (all too common) reality.

so. i have been making some cut paper collages while thinking about art and jobs and what might be next.
