Put my hand on the wall :D
(Me and Zach sorta made a butterfly :o )

I was finished with classes on Tuesday and then had some finals to take on Wednesday and then went to put my hand on the wall and pick up my yearbook.
Graduation is next Wednesday.

Way cool!

And I'm already signed up for all my classes next year~

Monday: FREE
Tuesday: FREE
Wednesday: 9-12 "Art as Criticism" Writing Seminar, 1-4 Art History
Thursday: 9-10:30 "SAIC Wired", 4:30-7:30 Studio Research
Friday: 9-4 Core Studio
Saturday: 9-4 Figure Studio
Sunday: FREE

I'm probably going to be able to waive out of the Core Studio class as long as I did well on the AP Studio portfolio thing.


You wish you could be as cool as Alana and me.

May is.... tomorrow :o

AP tests start next week. They've crept up somewhat by surprise. Next wednesday is my Calculus test, then on friday my portfolio is due. I get the weekend and I'm missing the Against Me! show and my Biology test is monday morning and then I register for my fall classes that afternoon. Then Psychology is tuesday.
After that?
I'm all set :D

Prom is the weekend after and so is the LISA show.
I bought my dress yesterday with Sylv and Skidd and it's way cool. I'll get a picture one day ;o. And then for the show the next day we're all going back downtown because there are a bunch of us that have to be there. So it'll be pretty sweet.

And then I'm gonna rock >O

Things are getting better.
The sun's out. The snow's melting. And the birds are making their stupid noises in the morning and waking me up way earlier than I should be Dx

School hasn't been bad.
.... In fact, I don't really have any complaints right now. But that just might be because I haven't been in psychology for the last couple days ;D.

Finished the housing and financial aid stuff for the SAIC next year.
Even moreso than usual- we're writing graduation speeches in english. They're getting me all inspired and crap to go out and do good things with my life.
lol yah right.
I just want to get out.

By the way-
If anyone is currently experiencing any kind of skin ailment- whether it be acne or dryness or wrinkling or cracking- I urge you to try Emu Oil. Mom came home the other night with a big bottle of it and told me to try it and so I did aaaaand it's actually really nice. Even after just a couple times. If you do a search on google of "emu oil" you get a couple sites listing the benefits of it and what kind of things it could help. It's pretty great :D

I am the problem they can't fix [28 Feb 2007|05:36pm]
[ mood | gloomy ]

Stuff has just been sorta... yucky lately.

I'm not doing so hot in most of my classes. Call it "senior-itis" or whatever you want, I've just lost motivation in so many areas to do the work and get through these last couple months.
I've been completely lost when it comes to what we're doing in Psych.
All of a sudden I'm not so sure about Calculus, which had been the class that I didn't really have to worry so much about before.
In Bio we've moved on to photosynthesis after not doing so well on the cellular respiration unit.
We're writing graduation speaches in English- which is actually not so bad- but I just don't really want to do the writing for it.
And I'm not putting any more effort than necessary towards Consumer Economics.

At least I have the art studio to escape to.

Started (and finished a couple) to try studying a style similar to Wesley Burt. I've brought the camera with me to school every day lately but I just haven't gotten around to getting pictures of anything. I'm actually really liking them.
Also got new oil paint brushes. So I'm painting again after taking a break for about a month.

and Senior Teach Day is coming up. I don't remember the date exactly but I'm teaching all of Mr. Bleck's classes. Since I'm debating whether I want to go into art education or art criticism, maybe this would be a good experience towards shaping that decision. That'll be a lot of fun, I think. Evan's teaching for Moran and Lizzee's got Motzko and Sarah's got Rigler- we're all gonna have a blast getting to follow around some of our favorite dudes.
The breakfast/meeting is tomorrow morning ( I get to miss EB :o ! ) and I get to miss a class to observe another on the 8th and then one of those days after I get to follow Bleck around all day.
Finally, something exciting amidst all the yuck that's been going around!

And tomorrow is my little sister's 16th birthday. Didn't get her anything or do anything for her. But we're going out tomorrow (after my Troubadour meeting) so I won't have much time to write my English speech and do the Psych notes for the test on friday...
So I'm doing it all tonight.

And I cleaned my room today for the first time in... months, probably.
I HAVE A FLOOR?!??!!!!!??!

They call me SPITFIRE (cause you know that I can) [21 Feb 2007|08:22pm]
[ mood | apathetic ]

Spent the four-day weekend sleeping mostly.
Things are doing so swell in other aspects at the moment. I'm considering, once again, hibernating through spring.

The weather's turned around, by the way. While we here in the northern suburbs have been suffering below-freezing temperatures for the past week or two, it's suddenly turned around and we had a 50' day. (I have no clue what the weather was like over the weekend. I didn't leave the house. Maybe it warmed up over those past four days.)

Spent my afternoon reading bad poetry. Troubadour homework. Tomorrow after school is our first long meeting where we figure out which of the pieces we want in and which are going out and which need to be judged by the board of students who just feel like helping. I didn't pick up the last of the packets, though. So maybe I'll pick one up tomorrow during lunch and read it during 8th before the meeting.

Got back the mid-quarter grades in a couple classes. It's not being a second-semester senior that's keeping me down because I've always been pretty apathetic when it came to schoolwork, but all of a sudden it's just getting worse. Especially in psychology.
I know I should get better but... I really don't want to.

I'm so tired.
I feel like dancing.

(from left: Sylv, Alana, Me, Elena, Sarah)

Skidd's in the hospital.
She decided to get the membranous webby part under your tongue pierced. (What a goof.) That backfired and swelled a to the point where she was put on a fucking ventilator.
Sylvia and I visited her once the second day she was hooked up to the machine of DOOM. The fact she was heavily sedated and had giant tubes in her face made her pretty unexciting but I got a sketch down and that's gonna be scanned and posted (along with many other sketches. I've been in my sketchbook A LOT lately.) eventually.
Went again today- she's out of intensive care and off the machine and conscious and stuff. She'd doing a lot better.
I keep saying I'm going to go there to laugh at how ridiculous the situation is. But she's probably got it bad enough right now anyways.

I might be dropping AP Psych. Mom says that if I think about it more and if it's really what I want then I can go ahead and talk to my counselor to get that done.
the more I think about it though the more I think that I should maybe just stick with it these last couple months.
It's not that the stuff we're doing is too difficult. I just can't keep myself organized the way the class is run. I work best having a notebook (for... notes. duh) and like a folder or something for handouts and stuff. BUT our notes consist of multiple packets for every unit. My binder gets cluttered and I'm just not able to figure out what I'm supposed to be doing and which packet is for what and... gah. It's just such a pain.
But then I remember that taking the AP test in May would get me out of an intro to psych class in college which will save my family some big bucks. But even when AP tests do roll around, this one is probably going to be the one that I prepare least for. I'd rather do better and prepare for the classes that I've actually enjoyed- Calculus, Biology and.. Art xP. I test well anyways so I could probably pass the test whether I do any hardcore studying or not.
I dunno.
On one hand, having that free period that I lost to Consumer Ec. would be nice- but on the other, it's not as if it's going to be especially challenging to at least pass the class and AP test.

In other news~
what a crap week.

At least I have a four day weekend to look forward to.

This past week was pretty uneventful.

My Personality
Openness To Experience

[ mood | exhausted ]

Travelled by bus to the Fine Arts Center in Highland Park to put up our art show! Putting up the show is always fun.

( the big painting on the left of the far wall is mine. so is the second of the two on the right. )

( omg Alana, Lizzee's puttin up one of your puking doods xO )

There were a bunch of other pictures buuuuut my phone is stupid and it takes forever for me to get them on the computer. I'm gonna be bringing my real camera to the opening tonight.
I have nine or ten pieces up in the show, I think.

Oh my god might be my favorite day of the year.
Set up tired me out unfortunately- those drawing tables are NOT light. But soon enough we were just sitting around workin on whatever. Did a quick picture of my sister (it has little pink ducks of DOOM in the background, by the way) from a sketch I did a long long long time ago aaaand did some stuff in my new sketchbook. I finally decided to get a moleskine aaaaand I'm in love with the paper. Colored pencils and my drawing pens work sooooo much better in it than my old book.

(the plan, anyways.)
I just missed the last two days of school but the only big thing that I really missed was the Biology test (topic: membrane). I'm going to make that up today during 8th, I think.

After schoooool I go home for a bit. Then we're goin out to dinner with Grandma Darlene (maybe gramps too, but we'll have to see about when he gets off work) (yes, I was named after my grandma, for those of you who didn't know) and then gonna try to find the Art Center. Last year my parents had a hard time finding the damn place.
Aaaand I'm gonna hang out there for a while.
And then I forgot that me and the girls were supposed to do some movie night but I'm not sure if I'm gonna go for that. It depends on when we're at the show and when we leave. I'll talk with em at school and try to figure out some plans.

Yesterday was Celebration of teh Arts :D
so I spent all afternoon at school D:

Good Karma, too :D
I've got pictures from setting it up.
I think I lost some :(
Oh well.

good times in AP PsychologyCollapse )

Yah. Computerized messaging systems rock. Even when the conversations aren't ridiculously dirty like Lizzee's was D:

Finals last week.
Semester grades aren't too bad for four AP classes.
B+ in AP Calc, B in AP Psych, B in AP Bio, A in AP Studio, and I dunno what I'm getting in English.

Tomorrow's celebration of the arts, the first real-business Troubadour meeting and will probably be the first Good Karma I attend all year.

Ears are occupied lately by Tool's 10,000 Days. Vicarious is my kinda song.
But songs like Wings For Marie put me in a funny mood.
Have a listen if you can, you won't be disappointed.

Finally got to order my new phone yesterday. For two months mom's said we could get new ones and now we finally did >O!
The new one's nothing special but it's way better than the piece of crap I have now. Should be here anytime starting tomorrow.

Five days before we go back to school.
I've still got stuff I've gotta do.
I've been neglecting my sketchbook. Still lacking lately in the inspiration department.

Got black dye. Gonna have to see if anyone wants to go to Hawthorn in the next few days so I can buy bleach. Gonna make blue stripes. It'll be fun.

(I can't believe I have Cradle of Filth playing again xD )

So we're already a week into winter break. I went out a couple times and there are people who said before break they'd get ahold of me that haven't yet. The girls and I are planning on going out for a nice dinner (no Chipotle D: ?!) on Sunday afternoon before we go back to school. This could be the last winter break we'll be so close, after all. Who knows what directions the bunch of us will go next year.
Haven't in the sketchbook as much as I'd like to be. I got pretty new drawing pens for Christmas but I'm just not feeling inspired lately. My cousin made me do a drawing for her, though. She has to come pick it up... but I don't feel like answering her calls at the moment.
I've got some work to do for school too. A take-home quiz thing for calculus that has some AP-test questions we have due on M=monday, Mr. Lynn assigned a paper but it's due the wednesday we come back, I really should get my psychology notes done but I hate that class, and I should probably start reviewing for my biology final seeing as Esgar says he's not doing any review in class or anything. None of that sounds very fun :(

And 2007 comes in tomorrow night.
I'd make a list of resolutions, but I really don't feel like anything needs to be improved upon.
I want things to stay like they are right this very moment.
(It's no fair.)

Merry Christmas, LJ <3 !

Got a bunch of good stuff this morning. I've been playing with my shiny new Intuos and my pretty keyboard.

Parents aren't letting me stay in my room today so I'm chillinon the big chair in the family room while they keep a bunch of movies running. I should be able to go back up after dinner. We got a half-cooked stuffed spinach pizza and we're cookin it later :P woo :D

Hope you're all having a great Christmas!

Troubadour is the art & literature magazine that's put out every year at school. I've been featured in it the past several years but this is the first time I'm working it. Should be fun :D.

Busy week! But at least once it's all over it's winter break!!!

Spent more money than I meant to on my weirdo friends for christmas o_o. But then I realize it's our last year together and I feel bad for being so cheap xD

I've been having some rough nights again. I don't know why I'm having so much trouble sleeping. It's no fun.

I want the week to be over >:O

Just to prove to you guys that I'm still working~

A work in progress

Self portrait.
38x 42 inches (I think...). BIG!
My chin might be a little too round.
"Pretty accurate for a self portrait. It gets more and more smug as time goes on."
- said Sarah, as the expression changed.

that other paintingCollapse )


Alana gave me antlers.

Was in a much better mood today than I had been for the rest of the week. Finally was able to get a good sleep last night after too much tossing and turning for the couple before. Turned out that all I had to do was switch my pillow o__o

And you have no clue how relieved I am that it's the weekend.
