This is supposed to be some sort of rite of passage, right? But it wasn't for things people normally get carded for, like cigarettes, alchohol, or getting into a club (as I don't do those, I can't get carded for 'em). No, I got carded trying to purchase a movie. D'oh!
Spring Break went by far too quickly, and now I'm back at school. I'm not particularly looking forward to finishing this semester, but I realize that I cannot run away, so I'm going to deal with it as best I can.
I'm quietly pondering some plans and disregarding others. Yes, I probably could develop a more effective study program, spending even more time buried in my books. I refuse to shut myself away, however ... I'm burned out enough as it is, and I see no need to lock myself up and make it worse. If I do an academic internship this summer, I think that could raise my GPA ... but I won't make needed money. Hmm.
I did just get a solid A on my History of Photography midterm, so that gives me new hope.
The ceramics teacher did a demo for our next project today. Watching his hands work with the clay was a surprisingly moving experience for me ... will my own one day move with such skill? Each movement, though seemingly instinctive and instant, was controlled and elegant. I want that effective grace!
I finally got around to making the logo for nyxdae's group. I found it very easy to create a mockery of the "abstract yet elegant" figure style that a lot of companies seem to use, and the minty colors gave it an appropriately medicine-ly feel. I got paid in chocolate for my efforts, and all was well.
