Whew! I am home. I am home for three months. No homework for three months. No met food for three months. That’s enough to make any RISD kid happy. But still, I’m rather sadish. Neither Erica or Michelle is going to be around. I am lonely already. I’m also nervous about my job. But whatever. I at least I get to watch a lot of TV and do my own thing this summer. hehehe. Well, that’s it. C’est toute.

Ahhh, What a relief it is…

yay. I am soooo done with work. I completed everything this afternoon, so now I just have to sit tight til Friday morning’s crits in painting and illustration. Then I move out for good. Meanwhile, I have been watching Michelle pack, which is actually quite entertaining. At 9 am tomorrow we’ve gotta bring it all up the hill so the storage place can pick it up and take it away. Other than that tomorrow should find itself relaxing and fun…its my last full day!!! And btw, I can not stop thinging about Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban!!!!! It has been consuming my thoughts relentlessly and I can’t wait 8 more days to see it. Yesterday I bought the soundtrack off of itunes and have been listening to it all the time to get myself even more anxious. So yeah. No work and Harry Potter. That’s basically me right now. WOO HOO. Anyhoodle, I’m a tired girl and needa wake up early, so night to all my peeps in the world.

YAY! A new found appreciation for Jason Mraz

So last night me, Erica, and her friend Amber went to see Jason Mraz at the Oakdale… And he was mez-MRAZing I tell ya h-whut. He is even better live because you see him for what he is- he is no cheesy male pop star. He has talent, and charisma, and man, this kid can spit lyrics like no tomorrow. Alot of his songs were really loose and improvizational- And he even sang “Rainbow Connection.” How can you not love him? It was just him and his acoustic. It was very very good. I am so glad I went. My favorite part was when he went opratic on our asses- this boy can sing, too. Seriously. Mraz is an excellent live performer- I think he gets a different impression on the cd which is more popish than his real style. Anyway, it was great, I highly recommend going to see him. You should also check out Raul Midon who was one of the openers. He’s wicked coo.

Additionally, Beebs had her junior prom last night, and looked adorable. She had a good time which made me happy…when she and mark got home, we all made sundays and had a ots of good laughs. Erica and my stories never fail to crack us up over and over again. Well, I have to go paint now.

Here’s a couple things for fun:

Why are there so many songs about rainbows

And what’s on the other side?

Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,

And rainbows have nothing to hide.

So we’ve been told and some choose to believe it

I know they’re wrong, wait and see.

Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection,

The lovers, the dreamers and me.

Who said that every wish would be heard and answered

When wished on the morning star?

Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it,

And look what it’s done so far.

What’s so amazing that keeps us stargazing

And what do we think we might see?

Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection,

The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

All of us under its spell,

We know that it’s probably magic…

… Have you been half asleep? And have you heard voices?

I’ve heard them calling my name.

… Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?

The voice might be one and the same

I’ve heard it too many times to ignore it

It’s something that I’m s’posed to be…

Someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection,

The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

Yay. Me is a happy girl tonight. I found out that I won an Orlando Bloom fanart contest! yay! I am such a dork. But hey, my incredible dorkyness won me a poster foo! And then I got a good message on myspace, which made me embarrassingly giddy. And today was my last day of class! So yes, I am a major dork. But I am a happy dork tonight. And now I sleep.



something that also makes me happy…eagerly awaiting Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban!!!! JUNE 4th BABY!!!:)

May 18, 2004

ahhhh. I feel much better. There are 11 days left, everything is under control, and summer eagerly awaits. As it goes now, I have the following left to complete:

1: take a photo quiz on thursday

2: finish 4 self-portraits, and in class painting for painting for the 28th

3: revise a few illustrations for the 28th

4: attend drawing crit on the 24th

5: attend painting and illustration crits on the 28th and THEN

GO HOME!!

woo hoo! I can do it! feel the powwwa!

The weekend was good, flew by, but good. On Saturday, I was outside in the sun all day doing a finger-prit portait for drawing. It was fun but tedious. Saturday night Erica, Sarah and I got ice cream and went to Walgreens. Yay! lol. Sunday I was outside all day again which was nice but I got a sunburn on my shoulders. Ouch. Sunday night Erica and I went to see Troy. My rundown of the film is as follows: Orlando= hot. Brad= hot. Acting overall= not so good by anyone. But hey. I was entertained for three hours so I guess I got my $9.25 worth. Any hoodle… Today Erica and I took Brittany browsing for prom dresses but to no success. And now I am back at school for a few days. I’m happy to be back where I can enjoy Michelle’s company for just 11 more days. Well I am tired so now I go.

Ah. I am feeling better now about the end of the year. There are just 14 days left, but I feel like everything is undercontrol. Yes I have a lot to do, but it will get done. So anyway, I am excited that Erica is out for the summer and I may or may not get to see her this weekend because I am not sure if I am going home. I’d really like to go home this weekend so that I can see her, see Troy (mmmmmm Orlando….), paint outside on my deck, and see my cat!!!! Oh, and the family, too. But if I don’t end up going home the only downside is I have to do my own laundry this week. Lol. I really need clean clothes. But the major upside to going home: Air conditioning. Need I say more?



I love this kitten picture, btw.

May 12, 2004

HELLO. yeah, so once again I have given up on being productive today. It is simply too hot in my room to paint, and I am too tired and distracted to concentrate on anything but the computer. I am a such a loser. Oh well, summer is almost here. I can smell it in the air and feel it in my not being able TO DO ANYTHING. lol. Hey guys, this summer I must re unite with people that I haven’t seen. That means you. Because I have not seen anyone this year. So please lets be friends again. -Later aligators and crocodiles.

Duuuuude



I so can not wait for school to be ova! but I think its gonna be ok the rest of the way, I basically know all that I must do until I’m done…I was going to write my FIVE page paper today, but I ended up toping halfway and I already have SIX pages done. thusly said, I have just recently and in the present decided and concluded that perhaps I may in fact and in all reality be just slightly too verbose.lol. so I will finish my paper tomorrow, and do my painting homework as well. Michelle got me totally hooked on myspace and now I am kind of obsessed. there is something both fun and horribly stalkerish creepy about being able to read about people you don’t know, and checking up on people you knew in like high school wink wink. anyways. strange creepy messages from strangers are fun. so there. I am a dork. and I like it. everyone must join myspace.com and be my friend! yay! i am sooo tired i am going cross eyed. word to my peeps out there. goodnight.

Can I be done yet?

I hate school right now. I am completely drained of creativity and I don’t want to have to waste my time trying to figure out how to illustrate a godddamn whale-porcupine hybrid doing something in fricken Norway. For cying out loud dude WTF. The year is almost over yet there is still way tooo much to be completed between now and may 28th. I AM SO READY TO BE DONE. get me home now! I mean it. I am going insane. and I managed to waste the entire fucking day. way to go, court.
