After a year of pinning ceramics on Pinterest and building enough courage to enroll in a pottery class, the waitlist opened at The Contemporary Art School of Austin. I would begin my study at a sanctuary tucked under palm trees and home to peacocks that lounged like yard dogs.

As life would have it in a curious way— the day after I enrolled, I was told I no longer had a position at my place of employment. I told my boss he made the right decision.
