What's an overly stressed underslept lazy bum to do when it's 2:45 in the morning and he's putting off studio and the next day's test and hell, sleep?  Fuckin' sleep.  "Sleep when your dead", says the brightly lit Dara's Fastlane sign outside my window.  Who knew such words of wisdom could come from the same gas station who's random ramblings include that of "Come try our chronic", "We've your neighborhood coke dealer", or "What starts with f and ends with uck?".  "Firetruck".  I love Dara's.

But enough with that.

I've finally managed to click that little button to summon the magical page o' updating.  The same page o' updating that I last  clicked over a year ago.  "WTF?"  Yeah, WTF is right.  WTF kind of last post was that?  Finally, though, a true update.  I don't know why it's taken so long.  I've done a fairly good job lurking in the background reading about everyone else's joys and frustrations, but not doing my part to stay in touch.  Shame on me.  Busy.  But that's always the excuse I tell myself, that I tell others, and after 21 years, I know is not always true.  If I were busy I wouldn't be doing this right now.  Then again, me typing this just makes me busy, busy enough not to do other things that should keep me busy.  Sigh.  I just don't have this whole life thing figured out.  But what I do have figured out is that I've been slowly digging myself into some crazy hole.  Not keeping up with old friends, not getting my work done, not doing all the things I'd imagined, not [insert random goal].  Some things I can let slide.  Other's I'll probably regret.  For some reason I can still remain upbeat about things.  I'm excited for what life is going to through at me.  I just wish I knew when to catch the ball, or when to duck.

This is an apology to whom it may concern.  We'll keep in touch.

Eeeks! It's 3AM, I haven't packed yet, I have 2 loads of laundry left, have to take mom to work at 8:30, great-grandpa to doctor's appointment at 11, pack like crazy, squeeze everything into my car and leave enough room for additional luggage, and pick a fellow K-Stater up at 4PM to drive back to Manhattan. Ahhh, the joy of New Year's Resolutions.

1. Procrastinate less? Maybe next year.
2. Go to bed earlier? See #1. Problem is, I have 8 and 8:30 (AM!>??!>@!) classes M-F. Oh joy.
3. Quit Halo 2? Only until Jan 10, 2006 at approx. 7PM.

Life is awesome. And I'm not saying that in a sarcastic manner.

(^---#2- Oops, late night studio sessions. No wonder I'm still up. And I think my sister's alarm clock ??!?!? just started going off...)

I just realized how much free time I have wasted this break, and all of the wonderful things I could have thought of, made, done. Part of me cares deeply about tht. And part of me just doesn't give a damn. I think I'm addicted to stress, because I miss it.

Hello all, 
It's been a long time since I've updated, so I apologize. Again. A new year is upon us, so I figure that "Updating LJ on a Frequent Basis" will be high on my resolution list. "Stop Procrastinating" will be pretty high as well, so I might as well kill two birds with one stone and start my resolutions now!

Everything's been pretty hectic this year, juggling studio with other classes with whatever's left of my social life.  It's to be expected though, and I'm having a blast, so I can't complain!  Break has been a welcome break (??), and for the first time ever I'm actually enjoying boredom.  Which is kind of scary now that I think of it.  I'll be in town for a couple of weeks, so if you want to do something, gimme a ring at 371-8604.  

In the meantime, I've included some pics below the cut.  I need to make up for some unspoken words, and what better way than including several thousand words. Read more...Collapse )

Just got back from a 12-hour non-stop studio session, first project due Saturday at 7PM. The countdown begins...

2nd Semester Studio All-Nighters : -1

I'm gonna go sleep now. Class at 11:30.

[Edit] - There ya go Colt!
I realize that over the past several weeks (months!? time flies incredibly fast!) that I have, for lack of a better word, neglected to update my lj on a regular basis. Whether it's the crazy work hours in studio, or the lack of an internet connection in my dorm room, there really is no valid excuse for my few updates. I hope to change that, and plan to update more often in the very near future. I'll be receiving my new laptop in the next few days, and hopefully will get connected within the next couple of weeks, allowing me to more frequently update my lj. That, and I'll keep kickin myself until I get back into the lj habit. Daddy's gonna need a new pair of shoes!

Coming up on the next episode, a recap of last semester. Juicy pics to come.
