i finished most of what i wanted to accomplish yesterday. i didn’t get to start on my visual diary or work on any of my own personal art projects, but that’s okay. that daunting laundry pile (…okay, maybe piles…) got folded/hung/put away.
and GLORY BE, i finished that god-forsaken alien paper! nine-hundred-something words. the guy that sits across from me read part of my paper & really wanted to draw my alien. i’ll take that as a compliment. 🙂 alas, he doesn’t get to draw mine for his project, b/c he forgot to bring his paper today, so we couldn’t trade. so i traded with another lady. i was able to scan over a couple of different papers, & it was very interesting to see what we all came up with! mine is very simplistic, as i am of the belief that, if there are beings out there in other distant galaxies or universes, they would probably be highly advanced and evolved forms of humans. so i used that belief in my paper. whether or not my instructor thinks that’s creative enough is another story…
anyway, i injected some modicum of class & grace into my alien by making its name a combination of humphrey bogart and lauren bacall.
and its planet is named after myrna loy and clark gable.
right now i’m sitting in starbucks, contemplating doing some of my own writing. i haven’t gotten a chance to write since last week, so i think i need to. i realized that i didn’t have any earbuds with me on my way here, so i swung by a store to get some. i opted for the oblong-shaped ones that fit inside your ear like a doctor’s scope thingy, but they keep slipping out. maybe i have small ears.
i can’t stop listening to bon iver. i hope you can’t either.
also, i still have to walk/run today, and it is f-f-f-freeeeezing outside!
