A Little Bit About...

I feel like an adult.

I just spent an hour creating a very reasonable budget for myself that will allow me to pay off my loans quickly and still allow me to socialize on the weekends. My...brain hurts. I had to dust off my math skills for that one.

Some new stuff!


In Utero



These are all to be part of my exhibition in May, being held where I work at Studio Zen on Campus Corner. No date set yet, and all the details for this will be worked out eventually. The general theme for these paintings is "organic cliches," so I focused on themes and feelings that tend to come to us organically, so these are centered around feelings of love, and focusing on different aspects of it. From reproduction (In Utero) to the frustration that sometimes accompanies love (Proust).

I'm working on six pieces right now, which may sound overwhelming but I tend to work best when I have a lot of stuff going on. If I'm just working on one thing I'll never get it done, but if I layer my projects on top of each other I get everything done a lot faster.

Southside walk it out.

There's something about paying bills, doing laundry, cleaning house, cleaning my car out, balancing my checkbook, cooking lunch for the rest of the week, drinking green pomegranate tea with locally grown[?] honey, and getting four new planks of wood in the mail to paint on that makes me feel like I actually have my life together.

I didn't get to cross off everything on my to-do list I made for myself today, but I got the most important things done. Oh, and I made tofu lasagna and harvest salad with raspberry vinaigrette. I am stoked for lunch this week. I also bought some of this:

Seriously, best apple juice ever. It's comforting to look at the ingredients and all it says is "apple juice." YES PLEASE.
