I just thought I'd share some of my art work from Studio in Art last year.
I didn't have room in my schedule for an art class this year, and looking at these makes me sad ):
but I'm planning on taking TWO next year to catch up for lost time (:

Draw and shade facial features

Draw your hands doing something
(My hand on the right; my friend's on the left)

Bring in/use recycled objects and make a collage about your past, present and future.
various objects; black and silver paint
[my teacher entered this piece into a local student art show, but it didn't make it in]

Draw a fancy letter with an interesting theme
(like the first letters in a story book)
crayola crayons; black ink

while looking through my drafts and the posts that I never finished or never published, I found my 'background check' where you asked me questions and I answered them all... just never published them.
So, I'm planning on posting them soon, but just letting you know that...
ask me any questions you would like, because I'll be happy to add more (:

In my next life i want to be Alexa Chung's closet.

I'm tired.
so very very tired.
incredibly fatigued.
I wish i had the inspiration to say something inspirational.
Hopefully this weekend I'll actually act on my promise and write down all the things that have been happening...

a deer!

something caught the corner of my eye...
i glanced out the window...
oh, it's just a cat..
i look again to see this beautiful baby deer nibbling on my mother's flowers.
i caught a few photos from the window before it dashed back home.

I havent turned my computer on all week.
I have been so, incredibly busy with school and volleyball.
I havent had time for anything but homework, showering, and sleeping! (oh, and eating of course)
So much has gone on that I didn't get to comment about (like the VMAs, ANTM, etc)
And even more to tell you about my new school year!
Maybe tomorrow I'll have more energy to type out all that I've been meaning to say for 6 long days...
So, expect some posting on the weekends possibly, but I'm not going to be a very good blogger in the next coming weeks...

annoying freaking sister. random dizziness. loads of homework. volleyball drama (already!?). stomach aches. messy room.

I'm sick of my posts being so depressing.
I'm sorry my posts have been so depressing.
I'll get better soon.
They'll get better soon.
I hope.

Finding a photo in my computer to explain my feelings right now is hard.
which makes me even more sad.

What love really looks like

"My wife and I shall be married for one whole year on Thursday (September 10th). Rather than buying each other gifts that mean more when they are bought for no reason at all, we decided to celebrate our first anniversary by sponsoring an unloved dog from a rescue group - something we shall do each and every anniversary. To celebrate what love really looks like."

what love really looks like part II


headache stomachache stress too many words
fatigue lost gold cards 2 hours of volleyball
school tomorrow eye strain
more words fever messy room

demolition derbies,
misspelled words,
light lights lights,
rides that go round and round,
the smell of grease,
discovering a frozen banana stand reminding me of Arrested Development,
funny graffiti in the bathroom,
bike giveaways,
walking around and shooting random people with bubbles,
seeing "Jimmies" rather than "Sprinkles" and laughing,
getting sick from the car ride there, the rides, and the car ride back,
going into my mother's room to say goodnight, and, not being able to see a thing, run into the door on my way out receiving a black and blue nose,
laying in bed and not being able to fall asleep, then not being able to get up in the morning because I was so sick.

As much fun that I had, I have decided that the fair is not for me.

Mid-day Power-walks.

i went walking around the neighborhood with Lisa the other day. It was wonderful! The sun was shining so bright and the flowers in everyone's gardens were beautiful!

i saw this adorable little note in someone's driveway and just HAD to take a photo!
my bad for the blurriness... i was trying to walk and slyly take photos of people's yard without them seeing!

the clouds were lined with silver, and looked like heaven.

my mother's flowers are gorgeous. my sister and i had a photoshoot around them.
the photos are wonderful, and i'll share them soon (:
