This weekend was sort of productive. I mean, I worked pretty hard on Saturday, doing just chores and a little artwork. I also had a piano lesson/ preparation for the APTA Festival that morning, so I didn't even get to sleep in. Bah. I wanted to go shopping that day, but I was lazy so I didn't. =P
On Sunday I slept in and then went shopping. I now know how to get to Sunridge Mall by bus, go me. Went to Chapters first thing, and spent the money that was left over from my grannie's gift card. Three books. ^__^ None of them are fantasy, or even fiction. Heh. I was in a weird mood. I got a book of Emily Dickinson's poetry <3, a beauty advice book that apparently has a DVD, and a wildlife guide for North America (it doesn't have white-tailed jackrabbits in it, though, which is very disappointing. Ah well). Then I wandered around Sunridge for a bit, though I didn't really want to buy anything. I got some pirate-ish rings anyway, for my costume. xD They had these cool necklaces with pseudo-teeth on them that I wanted to buy, but I didn't feel like spending the money on something I'd only ever wear a few times at most. And they weren't that
Going to a mall alone is always rather strange. It always makes me feel cut off from society, even though I'm surrounded by it.
The Festival went well. I was pretty prepared, all around, and it's not like it was a competitive festival. It was like going to a new piano teacher, or something. The adjudicator was really nice, though she dressed funnily. I wore my high-heeled shoes, and felt rather wobbly. Hope I didn't look
wobbly. Anyway, she seemed to think I did good, and even if I messed up a few times I didn't get too nervous. Now I have new things to practice, too.
I got yesterday and today off of work, for the festival and so I could work on my portfolio some more. I actually did some artwork yesterday. It's always kind of nice doing it, even though I'm never perfectly sure what it is I'm doing. I think that if I'm know exactly what it is I'm planning to do, I'll get bored or it'll suck or something. It's a whole lot more exciting this way, anyway. But Superstore doesn't sell white school glue. wtf
? Now I have to go try and find some somewhere else.
I barely did anything today, but that's alright. ^_~ It was very nice, and I'm surprisingly sleepy. Which is probably a good thing because I have piano tomorrow.
