Tonight, while I sat in the corner of my class, trying to understand what in the world my professor was talking about I must have been pulling out my hair, literally.

My friend turned to me, and exclaimed, "Well, look at you!"

And I said, "Huh?" because I am so articulate.

So she replied, "Your hair."

Oops, I like my hair all mussy. :) Besides that, I think I'm really going crazy with how much I have to do. So, I drew this. Look at the expression on her face...that's me. Enough said. :)

Thanksgiving Doodle.

Here is my Thanksgiving doodle:

Good night! :) I have to wake up early so that I can bake some chocolate madeleines. I hope it goes well. :)

Friday is my last day at work. I have to resign from my position as instructional assistant at a special education preschool because the hours conflict with my school schedule. I'm pretty bummed about it because I love the kids tremendously.

Anyway, I really want to give something to my co-workers because they all have been so, so, so nice. There are just too many aides, teachers and staff members to make them all something special; if I could, I would make them all a stuffy but I can't, so a card will have to do. Here is the card I'm trying to design. :)

hanging in there.

I begin this entry with a little doodle I did during class today. It's titled "Hanging in There," which pretty much sums up how I feel at the present moment. As you can see, there's an expression of contentment on my character's face. She's struggling; she's being forced into a situation; nevertheless, she is maintaining a smile. I'm trying to have a more positive outlook on life...trying really, really, really hard. :)

The Photoshop version:

Now for a little recap of what happened to me tonight...

I needed some floss, so my husband dropped me off at Walgreen's, while he finished up his coldstone icecream (By the way, do not get blueberries as a topping. YUCK) :). I didn't carry my purse in; I just jammed my American Express in my back pocket. It has my picture on the back.

Here is a summary of the conversation the clerk, who was late teens to early 20's, and I had at the register; I kid you not.

Clerk: Debit or credit?
Me: Credit.
Clerk: Can I see an ID.
Me: It's on the back.
Clerk: (looks at it, looks at me, looks at it again) It's kinda faded.
Me: Do you really want me to go get my ID? It's in the car.
Clerk: Uh...I'll ring you up and then you can go get it and bring your ID in afterward. How old are you, anyway?
Me: Um (trying to figure out the pinpad device) Uh.Guess? (I'm trying to buy time)
Clerk: 12? 13?

Long pause (I seriously cannot remember how old I am, and I pause awkwardly, as I finish working with the pinpad)


Me: No. 27.
Clerk: Yeah right, and I'm 47.
Me: *smile*

hehe :)

It's Friday! :-) YAY!

I bought a ton of sharpies at Target a couple of weeks ago (they were on clearance :)). So, I've been using them when I take notes in class. I kinda get high on the smell, but oh well, my classmates think my notes look very nice. :) Plus, making my notes look sharp keeps me awake, what can I say?

Anyway, in my opinion, sharpies are just as good as prismacolor markers. Well, I know artists, real artists, use prismacolor markers to blend and do amazing things, but I have no idea how to do that. So, I think sharpies will be my new medium for now.

Here's a little guy that adorned one of my math assignments.

I've been so busy with school; it's exasperating. I just took a test today, and it left me totally drained and dissatisfied. I studied hard, and if I get a C, I'll be pretty content. Though a B or A would be much better, of course.

On a happier note, though I haven't had time to craft, I have been developing a new character. It's a cupcake Head guy. :) I drew him everywhere... on my notes, on my folders, on my husband's dusty car, and finally on my white board (*sigh* all on boring, practical things). :)
