My name is Ellen Kuntz.
I have bags under my eyes, I don’t hide with make-up.
I’m chronically exhausted.
I work at a job I don’t want to make a career of.
I’m stuck in a town that makes me even more exhausted.
I’ve gained 10 pounds since moving back home.
I am unable to attend MCAD due to not having $18,000 out of pocket.
I wake up and stare at the same patch of wall every morning and ask myself “what am I doing?”.
I feel like I am wasting time, and I hate it.
That is ok.
I like the bags under my eyes. They add spunk.
I value the importance of moments in my life vs. sleep.
I enjoy all the lessons I learn at my job from the clients I work with. They help inspire my art.
I want to make an impression on Billings. I want some kid 20 years from now to believe in themselves because I made it out of this town and so will they.
I got my butt back.
Maybe I am not meant to attend MCAD, maybe I am…
I don’t have the answer to that question but I will soon enough.
There is no such thing as wasted time. I spend the day daydreaming and that is productivity to me.
Life sucks and it by far isn’t perfect.
You know what?
That is ok.
