Get your own New Year's Resolutions:

Also, we handed in our ACAD200 project yesterday, and I had the final crit for PRNT today. Two out of three final projects are done. Completely. And I never have to think of them again. Well, I have to take pictures of my prints, which I may just do at home unless i can get someone who knows how to actually use a camera to take pictures of them (Lacy I will make you cookies if you feel up to it. Seriously, I totally will.) Fake Mustache was tonight, which I managed to survive thanks to excessive amounts of caffeine. I dragged (pun intended) Em to the show, her first since the spring, and it was totally awesome. I keep forgetting how well Em and I seem to click.
I get to sleep in tomorrow. It makes me rather happy. Then Chrysalis, where I get to cover myself in rainbow paint.

Decided against the ten-colour print. Because that's just sort of like shooting myself in the foot. I'm staying home for a bit today to try and figure out what I'm doing for it now. I'm sure Tracy will be glad to note that the top-hatted venus-fly-trap is somewhere on my list of potential images.

If I'd thought of this last night and not this morning after I had my coffee I'd still be asleep. Still, this is the best thing that's happened all week. As soon as my caffeine wears down enough, I'm freaking going back to bed.

um. fuck?

  1. One week in order to assemble the written portion of my final ACAD200 project.
  2. Eight days until my final print is due. Ten colours, and I have to re-do the emulsion because I did my positives wrong.
  3. Twelve days to finish my weaving. All three of them. And my compu-dobby piece.
  4. Chrysalis every Friday from now until the 12th of December.
  5. Misc Youth is having their AGM this Saturday. I was going to work on school stuff, hoping that the silk-screening studio would be open. Instead I get to sit around for hours and watch drama unfold.

And I wonder why I have troubles sleeping?

oh gods. Two weeks left. But I have to survive them in order to rest afterwards.

Anyway, off to go re-emulsify my screen.

I FINALLY have an idea for my final silk-screening project. Joys. One that I might actually like when I'm done, but we'll see. It's my final chance to prove (to myself, mostly) that I can actually register when I make the effort. So I need to make the effort.

Had a pretty relaxing day, today. I managed to get quite a few things done, although mostly not for school. Still, I'm mostly prepared for the pitch tomorrow for ACAD200. All I have to do is write the conclusion of the pitch (which is the part I'm doing) and then remember what I wrote. It shouldn't be hard. We've talked so much about this project and what our goals are and what the vision of our corporation is that I'm not really afraid of forgetting what I'm talking about. I'm just glad I'm not answering questions.

Then comes the paperwork. I don't even know when we'll have time to meet again this week, as a group. I have things I'm doing every night from Wednesday to Friday, and then it's the Show and Sale. I don't know if any of the group is going to want to meet then. We'll see. Thursday night I'm hanging out with Kait, which is super awesome exciting. xD Friday is Chrysalis, and bowling.

Three weeks till the end of term. I know what all my final projects are and what I need to do for them (in theory, at least). Four weeks until my parents come home. Mom keeps asking me if I want to invite friends over for Christmas dinner. I don't know how to explain to her that the last time I brought friends over for dinner, it was so awkward we had to go and get drunk afterwards. She didn't think it was awkward. She just thought I was being rude because I didn't want Trevor and Connor to see my high school pictures. Oh parents.

Had a yogurt today, and then my stomach started hurting. I've mostly written off feeling sick as anxiety. But...I dunno. Maybe it's something I'm eating. Worth thinking about anyway. At least, if it's something I'm eating, I can just STOP eating whatever it is. Anxiety I just have to wait out, and it's sucky.

I should get back to work. Just waiting for the water to boil so I can make tea.

I've done nothing productive this afternoon. It's been so freaking nice. The last couple of days, every time I tried to relax for a bit my brain would start spewing lists of what I still needed to do. I'm back to eating like a normal person again.

*takes a deep breath*

So freaking nice.

I was up till two this morning finishing my silk-screening project. Pictures to come, maybe. I'm pretty proud of it, despite the fact that I was half-awake when finishing it off, and there's probably a lot of things I could have done better. Hammers and one o'clock in the morning DON'T mix, though. In case you were wondering. The class seemed to like it too. There were a lot of suggestions for improvement, but with the 'if you had more time and a thousand dollars' kind of thing added at the end. It was kind of the best critique I've ever had. I think I may have actually learned something. *gasp*

Although I still don't like this one girl's prints. At all. And everyone else seems to completely love them, which is rather painful. The comment 'I kind of want to punch your print in the face as soon as I see it' isn't very constructive, so I didn't say much when everyone was ranting about how awesome the stupid thing was. Augh.

My final ACAD200 project scares the crap out of me. It's so big and complicated and oh my god I've only got a week. We're having group meetings almost every day for the next week because we've still got so much to do, yet. We only decided last night to be not-for-profit. I should be working on it now, but I really don't want to.

Got two letters in the mail today! Hurrah. One from Kait and one from Sasha. They made me smile. I love getting letters. Plus Jen promised to answer any letter I sent her, so there should be another one coming soon/eventually.

Life is good.

You know, it wasn't until I finished changing my mood theme that I realized it matches my default userpic. Both are Finding Nemo. Weird. Well, I suppose it all goes along with my username.
Decorated my house for Hallowe'en today. It was really exciting, although I don't think Brenda really understands. She is amused nonetheless, probably mostly about my enthusiasm for putting up poster-board sillouettes of bats everywhere and then going 'We're surrounded by bats! :D"
Also mowed the lawn and cleaned my room. Tomorrow I'm off to school to finish my silkscreening and go to ACAD200. Budgeting class. *dies* Thursday is the day of doom, but hopefully in a good way. I'm just hoping I don't get into too much trouble since my silkscreen isn't exactly perfect. I hate registration. I hate that I completely suck at it. It's really annoying, because I love the process of silkscreen and really enjoy doing it. *sigh* Oh well. Practice makes perfect, eh?

I can't wait for the show...xD

And a meme... )

It's 8:30. I'm drinking a huge mug of tea (caffeinated) because I think I've hit over-exhaustion and I'm in this strange place where I'm too tired to do anything, including sleep. And there are so many things I need to do. Thoughts like that make me wonder if I'm more stressed out than I'm letting myself believe.

Things are going pretty well, really. I'm managing to not procrastinate on any of my projects, I've got a plan for the next couple of weeks that involves me getting enough sleep and me-time whilst still managing to meet all of my deadlines. My Print instructor says I can leave early on Thursday, which means I don't have to worry about getting all of my Fake Mustache things to school.

I feel so un-stressed right now. Just really tired. Zombie-tired. Braaaiins...

I need to call my therapist and start seeing her again. It'd probably be a good idea for my transition. I've concluded after the summer that I really actually want to transition. I mean, chances are, I'd be comfortable with my body if it were just me and I didn't have to deal with other people ever. But I do. Stupid people.

Corrected Mackenzie (my Fibre instructor) when he used the wrong pronouns today. No big deal. He winked at me later. It was amusing. He's one of the few instructor's I've had that I can imagine being colleagues with after graduation.

I kind of want to get this t-shirt. I wish I'd seen it in time to get it before the election. Although I suppose wearing it while voting would be a really bad idea. Amusing, though.

Alright, I think the caffeine is starting to kick in. I'm off to go bleach my hair.

I was going to spend the whole evening cleaning, but I slept instead. Had a weird dream about eating food at the hospital out of a tube, which makes me really glad to be awake right now.

I still need to come up with a feasible master drawing for my silkscreen. urg.

First day of classes today. ACAD200. Seems interesting, although I can' t say much more from just the first class. We'll see. It also seems like a lot of work, but I'm going to be learning stuff I know I need to know in order to be a working artist. I want to go to gallery openings now.

I saw so many people tonight that I haven't seen in months. Eric. Heather. Red. Well, Caitlin, Melis and Lauren I saw (albeit briefly) yesterday when I went to go pay my tuition. But still. It doesn't even feel like I've been out of school for as long as I have. It just feels like we've had a long weekend. I love school. It feels like home. I need to do some serious hanging with people, though. Like, crazy hanging out.

Silkscreening tomorrow. I'm excited! And then there's Fake Mustache, of course. Which should be interesting, considering I have to bring all my drag stuff to school. It'll just be my luck to carry all of my crap to school only to have my instructor dismiss us early. But we'll see. And I'd rather be safe than sorry.

And if there's any sort of drama tomorrow night I'm going to be rather unimpressed. I don't see why people think they can treat my best friend like shit and I'll still be friends with them and act like they didn't do anything wrong. I don't know. There's been a lot of immaturity going on. I don't want to bring any of it up; who needs more drama? But I'm kind of getting sick of it. Grow up people. We're not in fucking high school anymore.
