acceleration: pros and cons

Finals approach. Dun dun dun.

I normally wouldn't feel so stressed out, except that this quarter I'm cursed by something that I'll have to face for the next few years, at least: the ambiguity that is grading art. Personally, I'm really pleased with what I've learned this quarter, and I think I'm starting to learn a lot. This is the first time I really buckled down to learn all the technical stuff that didn't stick in high school, using mediums I'm not really comfortable with.

But I really need that A.

So, so shallow.

I've been distracting myself (probably a little too much) by doing a lot of work for Pen and Paper and making decorations for the apartment. Nothing big (my apartment couldn't really handle "big," anyway) but enough to have fun with the impending holidays. I have to say, not working at a Big Box Clothing Retailer this Christmas has really lightened my mood in regards to the season.


  1. I saw you on decor8 and I got so excited for you to be mentioned! Yeah!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm glad I found yours, it will be added to the list pronto

  2. Thanks, Beckie! I was jumping up and down in my seat when I saw the post - a little awkward since I was in the computer lab at school, but I couldn't restrain myself.

    I really enjoy your blog and I'm glad you'll be reading mine.
