back-to-school blues.

Today was the first day of an intensive 5-week period of pure torture for me; I started summer school. I had class from 8:00am-10:15 (calculus part II...ugh), went to Staples and loaded up on school supplies (they have their 1-cent deals...I bought 3 bottles of glue, 3 sharpeners, 24 pencils, 10 folders, 6 binders, and 3 pencil boxes for less than 3 bucks!!!), drove home and took a nap, had a boba tea and studied some, returned to school from 3:30-7:30 (my last professor let us out early; we would normally be dismissed at 8:50), and then drove back home. All I can say is "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH"!

So, for the next month or so, you'll probably see more sketches and doodles rather than crafts. :(

Here's my back-to-school illustration. It looks surprisingly happy. Looks can be deceiving though; I wasn't too happy while I was drawing this. Anyway, he's sporting an acorn hat; I wish they would make bike helmets like this. hah.

Isn't school a drag? I was SO thrilled the day I graduated college; I am done forever. No more school for me! Anyway, at least you have time to doodle there, if nothing else. Your little acorn hat person is cute! :)

Loved your pretty drawing ... Hope you have some spare time to keep on drawing and making your lovely crafts ...

Tessa said...

Oh no, not school! All I ever did when I was in college was draw, draw, draw in my notebook. No notes, just drawings. Especially in Art History!! Those classes were so boring... Good luck with your semester, and I hope it goes by fast!! :)
