What's on the menu:

Here's what my family had for Thanksgiving dinner. Luckily I didn't have to cook as much this year because my mom didn't have to work. And now that I've had my holiday break, I'm going to back to work on my studio art projects in order to get them done in time and pass all my classes. Thank goodness this is my last semester I have to take any art classes.

Mashed Potatoes
Sweet Potatoe Casserole
Green Bean Casserole
Corn Casserole
Crescent Rolls
Can Jellied Cranberry Sauce
Deviled Eggs
Pumpkin Pie
Peach Dumb Cake

It's a silly entry to make after months of silence, but I felt like I should make a post anyhow. :)

Exploring Me

I'm searching out personality quizzes for a project. And I'm posting the most accurate/interesting results here just for the heck of it. Believe or not this is actually work related. Part of a community builder thingy.

This one's surprisingly insightful:

My friend and new roommate is getting me to read Twilight by letting me borrow her copy. I must say that I'm a bit intrigued considering all the anti-Twilight bumper stickers I see on Facebook. If it's popular enough to get that kind of backlash then I might like it. I always had a soft spot of cheesy vampire stories. I'm still pulling the Anita Blake comics after all (though I haven't read the novels).

My living situation for my follow college school year seems a lot better than last year. I'm sharing a nice four bedroom apartment with two friends and one stranger. It was suppose to be three friends but at the last minute I found out that one of my friends was put on academic probation and had to pull out. Too bad. I think it would have been fun with the four of us. All three of them are more than a little awesome.

Our new roommate seems kind of shy though she doesn't lack any of own friends. She rarely comes out of her bedroom or talks to us. Maybe she's intimidated by us being close friends? Though we've never been unwelcome to her. *shrugs* I don't know what'll happen. We'll just have to see. One of my friends personally thinks that the new roommate thinks the rest of us are insane. (or Uber-Nerdy) We have been loudly talking about the Dark Knight, comic book lore, and other geeky topics, so who knows.

I don't care what anyone says.

Iron Man was a great movie! And I wish I could go see it again, but I'm leaving the country to study abroad in Italy on Monday and I doubt I'll have time. Plus, I trying to save what cash I have to feed me for a month on Euros. (Arg. $1.60 to a Euro...so horrible. Stupid economy.)

So many great moments that movie had. I think I'll just list a few: (LOTS OF SPOILERS) Read more...Collapse )

Urg. I want to go to movies, but I need to pack for Italy. Maybe I can find an English speaking theater while I'm in Rome. Surely, someone else going on this art study abroad tour will want to see Indiana Jones. But I'm sure the ticket prices will be murder.

Arg! Finals!

I've got until Noon today to finish my sculptures. I have everything fabricated but not finished (grinding, sanding, staining). My metal project looks ok, but I'm not to pleased with how my wood project turned out. Which is a shame as I enjoyed working in the wood shop so much more than the metal. I wish I had another week to work on them. I bet I could get both of them to look a lot better. But at this point, I'll just be glad to be done with finals.

I want to start getting ready for study abroad. I leave for Rome in a little over a week! I finally sat down with my professor/supervisor for the trip and decided on what I'm going to do for International Studies in Studio. I decided on Drawing (instead of Photograph, Painting, or Printmaking) but it'll be easier (when traveling), cheaper, and I could always use the practice. Besides, I was going to take a Advanced Drawing this summer on campus as my second art elective before I decided to study abroad. Studying abroad is a better option than taking classes on campus this summer because I'll be able to get a required art history credit in Rome and wouldn't be able to get that on campus as they aren't offering an art history classes this summer on campus. I would have had to transfer in an art history from another school (which is tricky as my school makes it difficult to do that) and pay for a 3 credit elective that wouldn't count toward my degree just to live on campus. Now that I'm going on the Italy tour, I'll be able to get 6 hours of credit that will actually count toward me degree. It's worth the extra cost to take those abroad. The experience itself will be more than worth it.

I made my own syllabus thing yesterday to for my drawing studio. I'll be filling at least two sketchbooks with at least two longer and finished drawings. I know that sounds like a lot for only a month, but I'll want make the most of my experience in Rome. Besides some of them with be short gesture/action drawings. I'm so excited! I can't wait to get over there an get started. I'll be buying my art supplies today and I'm excited for that too.

Only a few more hours and I'll be done with Sculpture and all my required art core classes! From here on out, I'll be in control over what art I concentrate on. I can't wait to draw this summer and paint next Fall. I'll have to start on my senior review art exhibition artwork as well. That'll be my own artwork outside of coursework. I'll probably do more paintings. I probably start on that this summer if I have the money. Otherwise, I'll start planning and do them next and Fall and Spring. Oo, and I'll have to remember to prepare some artwork to be sold in August at the auction during our family reunion.

I want sleep soooo bad...

Yep. I'm still up. Since 10:00AM Tuesday. That's how many hours now? Ah, 38 (and a half). Stupid finals. Stupid communial laundry facilities. The whole freakin' floor has to do laundry when I'm completely out of clothes. I had to wait four hours in line for my turn. I just want to sleep! I probably won't get to sleep until about 4:00AM Thursday! :(

Arg, I just want finals week to over! All I have left to do is to finish my wood and metal sculptures for my, well, Sculpture class by Friday at Noon and I'm done. But then I have to get ready to study aborad this May in Italy. So no real break for me. I'm excited for study abroad, but I still have a ton of things to do to prepare and no time and energy to do them (at the moment). My mom just had to remind me that I'm leaving for Rome in two weeks. Thanks, Mom. I'm stressed enough! I can't be excited when I'm sleep deprived and stressed out by finals. I just want to sleep.

I also wish I had someone to rub my heels. My feet hurt so bad. My heels are in so much pain, I can barely put any pressure on them. But I can't sit for long. I have too much stuff to do! With NO sleep. :(

I also got a Nintendo DS for my birthday and haven't had time to pay it...or read my comics pull list from MARCH. April kind of sucked for me. Hope everyone else's was better.

Sleep? Art majors don't sleep! We run of hardwork and determination...urg and caffiene and the ability to ignore discomfort...or injuries (major or mine). It's not like we have health insurance!

I've been up since 10AM yesturday and I have a final exam in an hour! :D And a full day of hardwork on metal and wood shop to look forward to. Yay, sculpture! I get to handle power tools with NO SLEEP. Maybe I'll just accidently kill myself and then I won't have to worry about whether I passed my classes with C's or not. Yippee!

random quiz

Take this test!
It shouldn't be too surprising to hear people think you're a sweetheart. Laidback and easygoing, you know when it comes right down to it, how you treat others is what counts. So, it's no wonder your signature hairstyle should be as natural and unpretentious as you.

With your big heart and fun spirit, you'd probably rather spend your time hanging out with friends than primping in the mirror. Why fuss if you don't have to, especially when it gives you more time to laugh and enjoy the moment? Whether you're blonde, brunette, or something in-between, your hairstyle is bound to be as bright and sunny as you are!

Worst Thursday Ever

First, I get my brand new eyeglasses with my updated prescription in and I should be excited about that, but I worried that something is wrong with them. Compared to my new contact where both eyes see perfectly, my left eye is a little blurry compared to my right when wearing the glasses. And then I put on my old glasses and the left eye was blurry on that one to. I don't know if it's just me or if they got the perscription wrong on my left lens (or cut it wrong). So, I now I have to figure out what to do about that.

Then I went to class and my freakin' campus is absolutely covered in annoying high schoolers. They're invading! I want them gone. A few were wolf whistling for the last HOUR as I was trying to edit my paper. Who let these children roam free!?

They're especially all over the fine arts building. We had to take down our artwork because some parent always about any nudes or "inappropriate" subject matter that are depicted on the artwork being shown. You child is on a college campus. What do they expect? At this point the art department has decide to post signs that say "on art students allowed past this point" to keep them away from our side of the building. Not only prevent said parental complaints but to keep them from vandalizing our artwork (which has happened in the past).

And then both of my classes today blindsided me with tests that I didn't know we were having, so of course didn't study and was unprepared. And they were brutal tests too. I have no idea what the results are going to be but I doubt it'll be anything good. I just hope I can make up the grade later on. I have got to pass all my classes with at least a C this semester so I can (finally) graduate next year.

Also, our organizational meeting was cancelled because the high schoolers are using up all the meeting rooms. Suck. I was looking forward to a little downtime with my friends after a VERY stressful week (and it's still not over).

Also: I'm in the process of rewriting my Advanced Standing paper and I keep this impulse to want to beat myself in head with a shovel. ...Is it tomorrrow yet?
