What a feeling

Phew. So I'm defintely feeling a bit burnt out. This drawing class is taking about a zillion hours of my time. I really didn't think it would be so intense, but it makes me glad that I didn't do the internship with SJCC. I have no idea how I would have found the time for it. Plus, I'm really excited to do an internship at a real design company. Hopefully I can get one either next summer or next fall/spring. As much as I hate not graduating until May of next year (as in 2008, not next semester), I really like that I have plenty of time to refine my portfolio and experiment with a lot of different things.

For now, however, time is not abundant. I'm taking a short break and watching half an episode of Project Runway, then I'm going to work on my drawing till 6, make dinner, then work on a poster design until tonight's new episode of Project Runway. And then I'll probably keep working until 1am or so. Ugh. I can't wait till I can breathe again. Or at least go to Barnes and Noble.


i heart iTunes

iTunes 7.0 is slick and shiny and beautiful and it makes me feel all happy inside. Go get it.

In other news, I think I'm getting the first cold of the season. Joy of joys. I've also spent a total of 20 hours drawng various self-portraits. Charcoal is becoming a permanent makeup on my face.


Boatin' in the Moonlight

So I definitely just rode around in the Intracoastal Waterway in a tiny boat with six other people. It was basiclly the best thing ever.

Here's the story: I'm getting ready for bed when I hear a soft knock on my door (the one that leads to the kitchen). I answered it, a little wierded out, but it was only Jessamyn. She was looking for a flashlight and was afraid she'd scared me becuase she was making noise in the normally quiet kitchen at the inn. I hadn't even heard her, but I actually had a flashlight. She said that they were going out for a night boat ride in the new boat she'd gotten Ryan for his birthday, and would I like to go along? Well of course!

Which is how I ended up climbing into a boat that was a little bigger than a canoe and had a tiny engine. It actually ran great, and although the edges of the boat were about five inches from the water, it was an excellent ride. There was an almost full moon, six other fun people, and a good time to be had by all. The end!


"Heat? I saw that fifteen years ago!"

School started, and I now have a giant time-sucker of a Drawing II class. Three hours of homework a night. Yeah. So I'm pretty much going to be a hermit this semester. I still have plans to get a new host (the reason that my website isn't working) and do a new website, but it's kind of on the back burner for now.

A lot is going on, a lot of craziness, but I know things will settle soon and I'll get in my groove again. And then, maybe, things will get crazy again. Gotta love that!
