Monday was the last day of art class, and I have but one thing to say to you all: FREEEEEEEEEEEEDOM. *wild screeching* *energetic fist-pumping* *crazed cackling* *flips the table* I get to paint what I want now. No more modern art. No more mutilated-looking fish. Nothing but a blank canvas and the prospect of as… Continue reading Ink Pens, Abstracts, and the End of All Things (mainly art class)
My sister is in Peru. (Smooth, Sarah. Just jump right in, and maybe they won't notice that you skipped the intro after seventeen failed attempts to write one.) As of yesterday, my sister has been in Peru for a week, and she'll stay in Peru for another week yet. Laying concrete, or something equally monotonous.… Continue reading Soup Cozies, Corn Husks, and Anna’s Makeshift Head Gear
Guys, do you realize what this is? This is a momentous occasion. You are reading the last blog post I'll ever publish in 2017. Naturally, it's about Star Wars. SO. I got to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi ON OPENING NIGHT, Y'ALL, and it's taken me this long to sum up the incoherent flailings… Continue reading Wisdom from the Utterly Awesome: The Last Jedi

It's very inconsiderate of the holiday. I had something lovely all written out, AHEAD OF TIME, just waiting to be posted. But then I realized… Continue reading Thanks Be to the Simple Stuff

To commemorate my great achievement of making it through two whole semesters without dying from an overdose of people, I'm doing another art post. If I randomly yell "You shall not PASS!!!" in the middle of it, please forgive me. My brain is… Continue reading Mary, Monkey, and a Student Showcase
Yesterday was Star Wars day, which, in all honesty, I didn't even know was a thing until a couple months ago. But apparently, it is, and Anna decided that we were going to celebrate it. My initial reaction? Suuure. I was a little skeptical. Okay, a lot skeptical. I mean, first of all, it's Star… Continue reading May the Fourth Be With You!
I had plans for this blog post. For the first time in my life, I wrote it a week before I was supposed to publish it. I would wait for Thursday and post it like any respectable blogger. Right? Wrong. My dear mother was so impatient to read it that I, being the dutiful daughter… Continue reading Why My Family Should Never Be Movie Characters
I have a way with titles. So this week, I did what I told myself I'd never do with this blog: I waited til the day before to write the post. Only a month into this thing, and I'm already acting characteristically like myself. The long and short of it is, I wasn't able to… Continue reading Art Junk
