I've been feeling down, sad, depressed, stressed, and shocked for almost two weeks now.
I'll just say it bluntly before I start crying again...
My mom passed away suddenly on March 7th, 2013. It's hard for me to type this, even now after it being nearly two weeks since her death. A few of you who've had me added on Skype know that this happened the night it happened. I just want to say thank you to all of those who've been here, talking to me, sending their prayers, even just saying hello and bringing me comfort, it means a lot to me.
My mom was a teacher, director, counselor, friend, and most importantly, one of the best people I could've ever hoped to know in my lifetime. If it weren't for my mom, I would've given up on art and music years ago, because I kept getting discouraged. She would take me to get art supplies and art books so that I could be inspired and improve, and kept encouraging me to not give up. I remember sitting in on a few of her music classes she taught at a local college here, I remember how inspiring she was to her students and to quote one of her previous students, "It was never teacher to student, it was musician to musician". About a week before she passed away, I came home from the last class I had, and started telling my mom about this presentation I had listened to; it was about the top 10 jobs that will be opening up in the next 10 years. The number one job? Teachers. She told me "Absolutely." and then told me that I'd make a great art teacher. I don't know if I'm going to become an art teacher yet, but something I DO know is that I want to do something with art and music, since those are my passions.
On another note, I'm planning to go to the Seattle DevMeet this Saturday with my older sister, ~Eleonora7
. My mom told me before she passed that I should go, that it'll be a good experience for me, so I think I should go for sure. I just need to work some things with my dad and ~Eleonora7
before Saturday hits. My sister knows her way around Seattle better than I do.
