Lab was pretty good last night. David had something to do so Clavan was sitting in with me. We tried getting my printer hooked up to the network printer, but for whatever reason we couldn’t. I’m glad that it’s not me doing something silly, and that it’s actually a technical issue.
Either way I finally got the images for the graduation cards printed out, so that’s off my to do list. I’ll have to call IT to figure out the printer issue, but for now I’m good.
I like the last lab this month. They’re pretty chill and the girl, Emily, seems pretty awesome. I think she’ll be one of the people to sort of gravitates to me and stays in touch after the class is over.
I got a fair about of stitching done on my dragon which made me feel good. I ran out of 517 thread, so I want to pick that up today at some point. I can spare 30 cents I think.
My order for the krienik thread was confirmed so I should be getting that today. Huzzah. I can’t wait. Shinny shinny pretty pretty.
I was crazy hardcore tired when I got home last night, so I pretty much went straight to sleep. That was around 2ish. I woke up at nine and lazed around for a bit before getting up and cooking breakfast. I had an egg sandwich this morning with bacon. Omnomno. I’m in the middle of sipping at my detox drink. It’s not bad, and I added some cherry juice to it since Joshua has a container of that for some reason.
I think a lot of the food in the fridge is leftover stuff from his ex. It doesn’t seem like things he would be into. And I haven’t seen him touch most of it.
So my new class started yesterday. Art History. There are sooooo many assignments. And this week I have nine chapters worth of reading to do. And it looks like I’ll never really be able to attend the lectures because they are going to be held during a time that I have lab. Suckage.
I finally figured out how to log into my student email. I totally had no idea what I wasn’t doing that. I thought the email I received through the FSO platform was my email, but nope. Totally not.
Finally figured it out and logged for the first time in three months only to realize that it is the same email that I had, what 5 years ago now, when I first was a student. Oh my god. So many emails….
I finally got that cleaned up and was able to find the email for my eBook for the class and got that figured out. It was downloading when I first started writing this, so it’s most likely done by now.
I’m going to try reading through some of the chapters while I do laundry, and see how far I get. There’s also a few more lecture podcasts that I need to watch about Roman and Greco art. I’ve already done the pre-historic and Egyptian. They were super short, and not all that special, so I’m expecting pretty much the same for these last four. Roughly 5 to 10 minute podcasts with a crazy brief overview. I’m hoping the reading goes a bit more indepth.
There’s also a crazy crap ton of design terms that I have to learn this week. I know a fair amount of them, or at least the concept of them, but having hardcore definitions with them now makes it seem more real and scary. I have to know these terms and be able to convey them confidently. This is a new profession I am branching into, this is stuff that I really don’t know all that well. It feels more real now. Like I’m trying to play with the big dogs and I don’t know if I’m really ready for it.
No turning back now though. I have to be ready, and the only thing there is to do is meet everything head on.
This month looks like it’s going to be a lot of writing and essay type things. Looking at are and writing about it in a way that makes you sound smart. Busy-ish work, but I can understand the reasons behind it. I suppose we’ll see how it goes.
I got all of my projects graded for last month. I made a 99.9 for my overall grade and my instructor sent me a personal message saying that he enjoyed having me in his class and that I was a fantastic student.
As an instructor I know that’s not just a blanket message that he sends to everyone. I know that he actually took the time to type out every word and that he most likely meant them. It made me feel good.
Right now I’m trying to fight off a headache, again from most likely not drinking enough water. F you too body. I’m also pretty tired still but it feels more like a body tired. Like my muscles need some RnR, rather than needing more sleep.
Sadly I have stuff to do. Laundry specifically. I want clothing, oh my god. I also need to see how much of the reading I can get done. My first discussion post is due tomorrow. It shouldn’t be that bad, but I want to get through as much of the material as I can before writing it.
I also have a play date with Josh and Sammi. It’s going to be great seeing them again. It feels like it has been forever. I have a few things to give back to Sir, and he wants me to take the little green dragon that he gave me. I left it because I didn’t know what to do with it. I wanted to take it, but it wasn’t mine and I didn’t know if he wanted to keep it. So I left it.
He said he would only take the 3D Blitz shirt if I took the dragon, so I feel better about it. He wants me to have something from him. The gesture means a lot to me.
I made brownies yesterday for Sammi, which was good, because I totally don’t feel like baking right now. Yay for foresight.
Not really a whole lot else planned. I need to cook the pork chops before they go bad. I plan on cooking green beans with them, and most likely mashed potatoes since Joshua has those that aren’t being used. I don’t want them to go bad.
Currently my bank account says I have $133 in it, which I’m almost %100 positive is so wrong. I budgeted everything, and I should only have like $20… I have no idea where this extra $100 came from. But I’m totally going to act like it isn’t there. I may even move it over to savings just so I don’t mess with it. I’m pretty sure it is meant for something. But all of my expenses have cleared… so I have no idea what I’m either a) forgetting, or b) hasn’t hit yet.
Jarrett doesn’t have enough money to cover rent much less the bills. Maybe the extra hundred is the universe looking out for me. If so, then thank you universe. I love you too. ❤
Sir messaged me yesterday about the money he owes me, which was totally unexpected and really awesome. He is going to be giving me $45, and the other $55 will go to the phone bill. He said there was no rush to get the account figured out since I’m good about paying my bill on time, and use almost no data. That was a relief since I really don’t want to figure out the phone just yet.
Procrastination, for the lose. But I’m trying to figure out so many other things that I really just want to put this on the back burner for a little while. No one is going to die, hopefully.
So yeah… That’s about all the news I have for now. Not a whole lot going on. I’m going to go finish this drink and take my vitamin and most likely go back to being lazy and enjoying my day off.
