The Adventures and Misadventures of a Neer Do Well Artist Living in Baltimore.

My Photo
Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States

I am a visual artist and writer living in Baltimore. I don't have any artist friends. Frankly, artists scare me, there so darn flaky. The above picture is either of me or proof that I'm a pretty decent artist. My goal is to be a self sufficient artist, whereas I wouldn't have to do something else in the day in order to eke out an existence. I also like to attend various cultural events around town. I go to plays, the symphony, etc. Also, I have Asperger's Syndrome. I found this out recently and it has explained a heck of a lot as to why I am as I am.

I was supposed to have come into work this morning but I overslept. I ended up visiting both my sister over her house and my father at the rehab/nursing home.

While visiting my father I told him that the doctors told Alexis that they are thinking about releasing him in eight days. It all depends on how he progresses. I was surprised that they had not bothered to tell him.

Also today I watched YouTube to see if anyone had posted any videos about the latchin’ technique for tightening dreadlocks because I was about to wash my hair and I am sick and tired that everytime I wash my hair I have to re twist it and it takes about an hour to do it. I would like to wash my hair without having to re-twist all the hair near the root.

I found tons of videos but none on how the latchin technique is done. I do not want to pay $16 to download a manual that may or may not contain pictures. And if it contains photos they might be grainy dodgy looking ones where you can barely make out whats going on. I did find a video of someone using a latch hook to do hair. The probelm with that video was that it had very bad lighting. You could barely make out the steps used in using the latch hook. I bought a latch hook a couple of years ago intending to use the latchin technique via the directions Ive read on some websites. The problem is that they are directions without pictures or diagrams. I need to see a visual to ensure that I am doing things correctly. Words are not enough I need pictures too. This makes sense because people like myself who have Aspergers Syndrome are known to be visual learners.
