Updates and a Feature

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 2, 2014, 12:09 AM

Hello to my dear watchers :hug:,

Now I am at my summer brake, finally I don't have to work for the next two moths, so you'll definitely will see much more of my art here (for the next 2 months only...hehee)
This was my fifth year as a high school biology teacher (so the next year will be the last one, as for my army contract) and it was actually a very good year.
I am the only biology teacher in my new school so all the loan of biology at school was exclusively on me, it was busy and hard year. Actually the last two years were pretty good, at my previous school and in the new one as well.
I moved to a new school and the acclimation was good!

That's because I am firstly committed to my personal life :heart: and we wanted to live together but my old work place was not good in geography aspect, too I changed a work place and we moved together.

We live together for a year now and at April we had our wedding. We are more than six years together and for us the marriage is just a natural stage in our relationship, so between us nothing has changed :date:.
The wedding itself was just great, we had so much fun with all our friends and family! :party:

At my new school I have met a bunch of new kids, I actually have more of a hundred students from 9th to 12th grade there, but of course most of my time and dedication goes to the 11th and 12th graders with all of the final exams they have to do. These students, especially the 12th graders :hug:, made this year challenging and busy on the one hand but on the other they are just great kids, they are kindhearted, they respect me and love me both at the same time and they tried to make their best (in spite of all the complications they had during this year) to succeed. I will miss them dearly...and to think that I have met them only this year! It's great when the students feel uncomfortable to disappoint their teacher, and I hope that the next year will be less challenging but at least as good as this one!

As for my art this year, I kept painting for 2-3 hours a week at the studio with our group, had a second group exhibition at November  :clap: and in generally kept my art on a low fire (as we say).  This summer is my art time finally!!!
I mostly update at my Olvium Art Blog these days so you are welcome to follow me there for all the WIPs and art posts I write there, by the way I will do some art books and art materials reviews there soon!
