It’s already November 5th, and I don’t even remember when my last post on here was. (Apparently September 17th gaaahhhhh.) Anyway, a lot has been going down which is usually portrayed by my lack of internet conversation. So how about another bullet point update?
~ I’ve been tutoring students for more than a month now. They’ve been making progress, but one of them still gives me some trouble. I refer to him as “A kettle of different fish” due to his odd ability to produce a new issue that needs addressing each week.
~ I turned 23 on September 27th. I took a bunch of my friends to the nickel arcade, then had them over for Avengers and a failed Baked Alaska. There was some strangeness with a pizza man, which I will fill you all in on later.
~ For the last two Saturdays I have been in a special workshop class wherein we let it flow and produced some linoleum cuts and prints. It was bitchin, took away all of my stress, and reminded me why I like to write and Illustrate and how I need to just make things I actually like instead of stressing over assignments. I am far more mentally free now.
~ I’ve been going to a lot of open mics, readings, and lectures in the little gaps of time in my schedule. It’s been remarkable to just see and experience and get feedback on my work and network with others along the way.
~ I think I’m getting sick or have been sick for a solid month and have simply ignored the symptoms, pushing them back where able. But I feel it in my nose right at this moment, and I shall have to do something about it post haste. I know I missed a class because of it without meaning to already, and I don’t want to miss any more. It will have been the 3rd class I’ve missed in my last 4 years of college.
~ I gave two sexual health presentations for Vic, my former Gay and Lesbian Studies professor. She praised me openly and was wonderful to see again and converse with. She says I gave the most comprehensive in-depth presentation of anyone she’s had come in thus far, so that made me super proud.
~ I’ve been spending alternate Thursday nights at a boardgame meetup in the loop. It’s been a great way to decompress and relax and make new friends. I like being able to casually game and pick up new ideas for boxes for the shelf at home.
~ Seeing Amanda Palmer at the Metro on Saturday. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
So that’s where I’m at right now. Two years of illustration neglect is finally working its way out, life is good, pumpkin coffee is available at dunkin donuts. I’ll be back on as soon as I can find the time for tumblr. Until then.
