You Know You're An Artist When...

it's raining and the thing you're worried about is your sketchbook getting wet.

But my goodness, it's been a while since I've written a blog entry. Why aren't y'all harping on me about this!? I suppose I've been extremely...busy with making petty things my priority. Shame on me, I know. But I can only blame myself, but let's keep our optimistic juices flowing, shall we? So I've survived the third week of school, gracious. Honestly there are some times I wish I didn't take the 5am-9am shift every MWF and naps are certainly a big part of my days. Unfortunately, though, I find myself on the computer more often than napping and I complain about being tired. Ha, I'm so crazy. I'm surprised my body hasn't shut down yet. And I don't think I've let y'all know that I'm actually pledging here at ACU. I've had my iffy moments, but now I'm pretty excited. And I've been told that bid night (which is next Friday) they (being the club you pledge) take you out at 5pm...and don't bring you back until 5 am Saturday morning.

Let's do the math.

I work at 5 am that morning.

I won't be getting back until 5 am the next morning.

Can you say...suicide day?

24 hours with no sleep. I don't know if I can do that. But that's just what I've been told about other girls who are pledging with me. So we'll see what plays out...

Hmm, what's next. Remember the animation I told y'all about? It. Still. Isn't. Done. Ugh. I really need to take a facebook hiatus or something and spend all my time on the thing so I can get it done and work on a Fat Pony animation! (GASP. Fat Pony animation? Why, yes, I did just say that.) I'm probably only half way into the other animation. I know, I know. Long way to go. Especially since I'm doing it all in photoshop. Ah, well. The best way to get something finished is to get it finished, right? I'm going to try and work on the darn thing a little bit every day and'll get done. Ha. I want to get Fat Pony back in business. I've got about 15 ideas so far (I'll get more, I promise) but I want to bring Fat Pony back with the animation (which is only about a minute long, compared to this one which is bloody 5 minutes long. Goodness what did I get myself into).

But enough complaining.

Let's get workin' on the darn thing, shall we? Maybe...after a nap...

So you're going to pledge, huh? Wow, I hope it's worth it, especially when you have to go through that suicide day you mentioned! Well, tons of students pull all-nighters, so I guess you will too at least this once. Which club are you going into?

You know I'M not going to harp on you for not posting when I haven't even posted since the first week. By now you're doing better than I am! Although I guess you could post something while you're working at that early hour at your desk.

And I noticed you changed your layout, very cute! I like it. :D

And good luck on your animations!!! You've got quite a lot on your to-do list, I can see that you are very busy... wow, VERY busy. How do you sleep at all??

Hopefully the weekend will be a good kick-off for you to get things stright and prioritized and started. Best of luck with everything!

I'm pledging Alpha Kai Omega :] They're the ones that run around in blue and orange and their mascot is a giraffe, lol. And I don't know if I qualify as a student that pulls an all nighter, because the latest I ever stay up is midnight. I'm such a pitiful old lady, ha.

And I guess I could post early in the morning, but generally at that time I can ever think of anything to write about because the day has only just begun!

And thank you! I thought it was time for a change :]

Sleep? What is this concept you speak of? I take...power naps. That last...a long time.
