So I managed to survive the school year intact. It looks like I kept my New Year's resolution to not burn out. Thank the Goddess. I'm hoping I can work less next term; if I can have fewer sixteen-hour days I will be very, very happy.

I did pretty well in all of my classes, too. B, B-, B+. Jewellery was the most difficult, and the most fun once I got over the stupid fucking learning  curve of DOOM. I made cuttlefish cast trees for my final project, and they are lovely. Still might put them in something else, but we'll see. Drawing was...interesting. I don't think I'll take another class with Miruna, as cool as she is to hang out with outside of class. It pushed me as an artist, and it was nice to have a concept-based class among all of my process-based ones. But still. I'm not a drawing major, and everytime I brought something in for a crit I was terrified that they were all going to tear me to pieces like a bunch of rabid wolves.  Because it happened. Not to me, but to others. And ouch.

I loved, loved, Bill's class. omg!glee! So many shiny things. I got into a directed studio for next term, which is exciting. And kind of scary. But yay! I want to start making my Alice in Wonderland piece that I've wanted to do for years.

Work is meh. It's pretty dead in there in the evenings. I'm working Boxing Day, which I hope will be busy so that it goes by quickly. Apparently it gets quieter in January, which is sort of frightening. I am going to be so bored.

I got snake bites done last week. I am quite pleased with them. Especially because I no longer wake up with a mouthful of blood. O.o They seem to be healing pretty well, and they look so cool. *glee* I can't wait till they're completely healed. Neither can Sherina. XD I am so going to jump somebody as soon as I'm able to kiss again. lol.

Yeah, so life is good. I'm enjoying sleeping in now that I can. Managing to not be too annoyed at my parents most of the time. Escaping as much as I can also helps.

*sigh*

Just emailed Sarabeth to tell her there's probably no way that I'll be able to get my soldering samples done by next class. Which is true. I feel sort of relieved and yet guilty at the same time. It's just - I have to do 110 drawings by next Monday. 100 of those were due last Monday. If I go to school tonight to work on my jewellery stuff, I won't have time to finish the projects for a class I'm already behind in.

I don't know if there's really anything I can do. I'd go cry in a corner, but that doesn't seem productive.

In other, completely different news, apparently I'm seeing two people at once now. Who knew? It's kind of weird because a month ago I was single and then within two weeks suddenly I'm very, very not. Though, did it really have to happen in the middle of school/work-stress, and not in the middle of summer when i had nothing else to do? Not that I'm really complaining. I'm too happy. XD

Need to make supper. I'm super hungry.

bahahaha!

This weekend = totally awesome. omg.

I'm going to my drawing class for the first time today. I had to skip last week because I'd only gotten about half an hour of sleep. I decided it wasn't worth trying to pull of a fifteen+ hour day whilst completely sleep deprived. I'm sort of nervous, actually. Hope my instructor doesn't take my head off or anything.

We started practicing Thriller yesterday. This is going to be crazy. And i will probably never want to hear the song again by the time Halloween comes around. But I'll be able to do Thriller and impress everybody.

Life's been pretty quiet recently. Which is kind of nice. The end of school was uneventful, although I stressed myself out learning dates for my AHIS final when I apparently didn't need to. English was an open-book exam. Easy A+. This semester has done wonders for my GPA. I got an A+ in Art History, an A in English and a B+ in Fibre and Mixed Media. Clearly the best semester ever. Except that part where I ended up being late for my final Fibre crit, which was sort of embarassing.
Kait's birthday party was Friday. Omg Wolverine! GLEE! And then tea at Oolong, and Twisted dancing. I was about to fall over by the end of the night, but it was awesome.
I don't get living expenses now that school is done, which makes a lot of sense, but makes me really need a job right away. My plan is to work my ass off for a couple of months and then take August off. Travel and such. Kait and I might fly down to Vancouver for Vancouver Pride to visit Trevor (and Sasha and Connor), which would be awesome. And then there's Camp Fyrefly, which I need to remember to apply to, and my cousin James' wedding at the end of the month. And I just want time off to relax and do nothing, without starving to death. That would be nice.
MYN is going crazy (in a mostly good way). The Laramie Project performances are the fourteenth to sixteenth, and there's a lot of panic going on about that. People in Calgary at that time really need to go see this play. I saw the first act after the board meeting yesterday and nearly cried. It was so amazing. And that was without the lights or proper stage or anything. And we're also hosting a youth dance in June, which I volunteered to help run. My first time organizing something, really. It's pretty exciting. I'm running it with Jen and Laura, so I'm expecting everything to go as smoothly as they can. Because we are awesome and are going to attack the whole thing with lists and spreadsheets. (Exel! Yay!)
Anyway, I'm off to make posters and write lists. Oh lists.

happyfish: (Yay)
The Killers concert was so fucking amazing! My throat hurts from screaming so much.

omg. *flail*
