One week from today I will be back at FIT. I am kinda excited about that since it will be a new semester, new classes, and all that good stuff. However, I really am enjoying working extra hours, extra shifts at the restaurant, and then having some free time to myself instead of doing lots of homework and projects.

I really want to start keeping a journal for artwork and collage and drawings. I've never had a journal of drawings, and it's something I've been thinking about that I want to do. The obvious solution is to get a journal and start drawing, but I just need to find the time to do so! I miss painting and drawing and all the other fun art stuff I did in high school in college. Now I just have a degree and no "reason" to draw or paint. And I hate that. I wish I was as motivated as I used to be. I have 3 of my paintings hanging in my house in different rooms, one of which is in my own room. They do look good if I must say so myself. And when I look at other peoples' work, it makes me want to paint even more. I have so many ideas in my head of what I want to do, and then I just don't. It's quite sad really. I'm in the middle of painting a portrait of Tuffy. It's almost finished, but is sitting in my craft room closet. I am just so involved in so many projects, that it is tough to keep them all straight and then finish them all. I usually get sidetracked with some kniting, crochet or counted cross stitch project that my fine art stuff never gets completed. I want to change that. Is it too late to make a New Year's Resolution?

I am working on a layout for a page at work, and I created the graphic, sliced it, and finished all the rollovers. Then I realized that I am missing a category of the links, so I have to REDO THE ENTIRE THING. Ugh. My own stupidity, I know, but it sucks. I'm not looking forward to that, especially since it took me such a long time to do in the first place.

I'm excited about my lunch today. My mom bought deli roasted sliced chicken cause there was a special on it or something, and I used that and American cheese, and made a croissan-wich with some mayo, and then brought along a banana and a fruit punch jucie box. Yes, this excites me. It's better than hot pockets or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!! When I go back to FIT, I will be eating lots of bland, blah food that doesn't require refrigeration. Goodie, sounds like tons of fun. I just don't want to keep spending money on buying lunch daily when there is no need to. I think that I will only be needed to bring lunch once or twice a week. The other days I can eat at work and eat REAL food.

I bought Dave his gift for either Valentine's day or his birthday. I want to say what it is because I'm so excited about it, but I do think that he sometimes reads this. Ugh, I'm so bad at keeping secrets! I want to post a link to it and everything but I know I can't! Ahhh!

Ok, back to work. And redoing the graphic. Again.

the sucky thing at my job is that i have to eat bland food there too which is such a drag. i guess it's comforting for me to know that i'm not the only one.

i am so envious of all your side projects. i always feel like such a sloth b/c i pretty much have no hobbies except laying around like a couch potato. at least you have productive, artistic, creative endeavors to speak of! on the other hand, i'm glad you are enjoying your time to yourself. you always sound so productive so i'm glad it's getting balanced out a bit with some me time.
