One More Week! (And a little bit more)

Today starts the final week of classes. That’s pretty crazy. I’m very excited to be almost done with my first semester of college ever. It’s sort of unreal in a way, because I still don’t feel like I should be allowed to be responsible for myself. I mean, the other morning I sat on the floor for ten minutes, debating on whether I should wear my rain jacket or my winter coat. But, at least I can do my own laundry now!

Anyway…

A studio update!

We are working on our final project, which is a presentation “board” with some of our work from the semester. The photos have to be arranged in some kind of way that they make sense and has a nice “flow.” The hand drawn layout is due today. The during class, we are learning InDesign, which is an Adobe program that I suspect is for making posters.

The layout for my board. It’s really messy, but that’s ok. I am titling it, “I Waste So Much Trace” (like trace paper). It’s catchy.

What else…

We finished decorating our room, and I must say, it looks pretty classy.

The snowflakes on the left wall are post-it notes

Here it with the lights off.

And another thing. The crows have come to roost. There is a length of Shortlidge (which I still don’t know how to spell correctly) where the sidewalk is covered in so much bird poop-splatter that it looks like a Jackson Pollock painting. I guess the crows have fancied this row of trees next to the sidewalk for their nightly rest. And it’s not just a few crows–It’s like hundreds. They just sit there in huge, dense masses, waiting for innocent pedestrians. You think I’m making this up, but it’s real. I was walking down this section of the sidewalk and I could hear the birds doing their thing. Every night. Poop is raining from the sky.

I would’ve taken a picture but I don’t think it would be as appreciated a one of Pollock’s works so I’ll use it as a stand-in.

Number 8, 1949

The accuracy of this to the sidewalk is incredible though.

 

Aaand We’re Back

Well, I’m back. (From break that is). And, oh joy, classes start up again tomorrow. So that’s fun. Just a quick thing: I updated my post about thanksgiving. The post with the cool video that you should watch.

Anyway. I guess there isn’t all that much to say. All the snow has melted which makes me sad because I was actually looking forward to walking to class in the snow. I know I could spend this extra time I have doing homework or something, but as per usual, I’m procrastinating.

Today, my roommate and I started decorating our dorm (Whilst listening to festive music, of course) to get our dorm into the Christmas spirit! Here is a lovely picture of our progress:

Unfortunately our dorm is still hesitant to make us feel warm in cozy because right now it is freezing in here (figuratively speaking). But seriously. We were told-really we heard rumors-that the head would come on after Thanksgiving break. That was apparently was a lie. To sum up with a Spongebob reference (and because there is always a good time for a Spongebob reference):

HAHA! It’s funny because it’s true.

Also, I noticed that at the bottom middle edge of the picture of my dorm, there are two fuzzy white blobs. I realized that they look like giant cotton balls out of context, but they are actually the tops of my new snow boots!

That is all.
