I was unaware any of this was happening until approximately two days ago. Thus, I'm completely unprepared. I have one candle. My boyfriend managed to ruin my other one. How? Don't ask me. I didn't even know it was possible to ruin candles. So I'm really hoping the power doesn't go out.
We do have the next two days of school off, though, so I really can't complain. There's a bunch of homework I need to work on, maybe some scholarships to apply to. Otherwise, I'll just lay around a read.
In other, half-hearted, updates (I'll go into this more later) I'm moving and I may be studying abroad this summer. I don't want to say too much right now. Mainly because I don't know that much myself, but I wanted it out in the universe. Things tend to make or break when the universe gets involved, might as well get it out there early.
I'll be back to update more in a few days.

It took nearly 30 hours in the span of 5 days, but it's finally finished.
And then the wind tore it apart in three days.
It's so exciting and exhausting to make a huge piece of art. So it's really sad to see it come down.
I'd still like to try it in a more public space, but I'll need to experiment with better materials.
Probably something sturdier than tin foil and string...
Other than that it's registration for spring semester and study abroad plans being hatched.
All of which I'm really excited about.
I've also been pretty garbage at bringing my camera with me as often as I should.
So I've been attempting to fix that, but I suck at that stuff. Woo!
Have a good week.

The poor thing was probably about to explode.
I am admittedly the worst person in the world at taking care of a car.
I have no earthly idea when the oil was last changed, despite the fact that I did it my damn self.
Did I, maybe, write down that pertinent information for the future? Nope, certainly I will remember!
And that's the least of it's problems.
But hopefully the problems are nothing too detrimental, to the cars' functioning and my wallet.
In happier news, I'm starting my first installation piece. (That's the, rudimentary, sketch above.)
I'm really pumped about it.
This is only a school project, but if it's received well and doesn't kill me in the process I'd like to try and put one up in Baltimore. Baltimore is probably the perfect place for a larger version.
That's way far away though.
Until then, I'll try and remember to take pictures of the process.

Projects and projects and my first installation piece. Exciting. I'll post some pictures once I start working on it, but for now just some pictures from this week.
A wall and some velcro.
This was one of the locations I scouted for my installation, but it ended up looking super creepy instead.
Some hooligans stuck some cones on the top of lamp posts. Hooligans are the best.

Being in the world is exhausting.
And there are so many things left to do.
And it's cold...
I'm just looking for things to whine about.
As Louis CK says, I have white people problems.

Which I would say is abnormal for me.
Though I never feel as if the weekend has been busy until afterwards.
I spent Saturday at the Renaissance festival. I find it difficult to go more than once a year.
But once is plenty of time to explore, enjoy all the people in costumes and cheesy
olde english renditions of modern speech.
Unfortunately, I completely neglect to take pictures of the actual people.
from last year and some mutual friends.
I drank too much wine and had entirely too much fun; filling the time
with conversations about Canada and flying.
This weekend conspired against me.

As a little sidenote, I noticed a theme with my pictures from this weekend.

School just showed up out of nowhere.
I mean I knew it was happening. I'm not that out of it.
But jeez...just out of nowhere.
I needed a laptop, which put me behind a couple days.
Especially when most of my assignments are tedious Illustrator affairs.
I like the pen tool, but not that much...
Last weekend a friend from college came down to visit.
I spent my time split between work and hanging out with him.
Homework neglected. That came back to bite me in the ass.
Once again I am caught up and breathing.
