Spring Break, Spring Break, I Love You So

Well, this is bizarre.
I have the house entirely to myself. And not just for today, oh, no.
But for all week. Ha-HAH!
I woke up at 10:30, and had Razzleberry pie and a can of Diet Coke for lunch.
I wish this break was longer...
Tomorrow, I'm working over at OUE, from 8am-2pm, cuz they're hosting a career day.
There will be 900 eighth graders.
And, yeah, I'm doing it for the money;
the gallery does not open again until my show, April 19th.
This is $50 + I wasn't counting on. And college books are expensive.
And, with this extra money, plus my "huge" paycheck from helping out,
ushering for the play,
I'll be set for my books, a new camera
and any new frames I have to get for my charcoals.
(I totally thought I had 18 or more pieces ready for my show,
but as of now, I only have 15 or 16. I got some
catching up to do. And I'm running out of ideas...)
Okay, so I just wanted to update, cuz I'd not done so in over a week.
A Question For You:
What did you/have you been doing on your Spring Break?

And this day in December...

I was in wonderful, crazy EPCOT, the World Showcase part.
So, some more shots for you all.
Never had this franchise-mashing happen before!

Oh, I miss it so much.
Okay, bye!

In December at this time...

... I was here, in the Animal Kingdom at Disney World! Oh, how I miss it. I'm gonna go reminisce, and am gonna drag you guys along with me!
Don't worry, though, most of these are fancy art shots, so I won't include an enormous explanation of them all, like how awesome the food was or whatever. I just wanted to assault you guys with beauty.
And here we go!

Oh, yeah, and this. So what? I love them.
Well, that's enough remembering for today. Come back tomorrow for a whole new slew of pictures!
Another question for you all:
Have any of you guys been to Disney World?

Oh, yeah. And this. So what? I love them.

Happy Frabjous Day

Well, I saw Alice in Wonderland yesterday. It was fantastic! I'd heard some very damning reviews, but I was blown away. It wasn't Tim Burton's best movie, but I never figured it would be (that title goes to Edward Scissorhands), but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The 3D didn't even give me a headache, as it usually does. Huzzah for getting used to it!
My friend Cheyenne and I left college at 3-ish, bought our tickets, and then killed time by eating desserts at Garfield's. our theatre, in an attempt to get people to see it, had small drinks for $1 and small popcorns for $1, also. So we ate that too.
We cheered for all the voices we recognized and enjoyed the acid-trippy movie. Not a bad Tuesday, if I do say so myself.

(If this pic is blurry, it's because I had to take it with my little laptop camera. XD
This'll be for sale at my art show. 9 x 12
The Alice pic I did as a going-away present. 9 x 12, also)

So, for tomorrow, I'm ushering again. I love this play so much, I had a dream about ushering it!

So, there it is.

A question for you:
What do you think of 3D movies? Good, bad, don't care?

My Lovely Weekend

This here is my turtle, Kameko. Obviously, this was taken in the summer. Oh, how I miss summer. Anyhow, I just wanted to show you guys.

So, because I still have no money for a new camera, there'll be no visual aide to document my weekend. That's okay; the pics would've been illegal --- they're not bad, they're just copyrighted.

As you've read before, I assume, I work in the art gallery at my college. My boss is a student / cultural intern who may actually be younger than me. Anyhow, he is in the current play that OUE is putting on, called "Noises Off," a British farce. He asked me and another gallery girl if we wanted to usher for the play on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We get paid and we get to see the show for free every night. Naturally, I said yes. I like helping.

Honestly, people, this play is hilarious. Like, tears rolling down my face and me falling out of my chair, hilarious. Thursday and Friday nights we had crowds of 40 or so (this theatre is small) but on Saturday, we had a crowd of over 100, including my mum and little sister. The play is even better when you see it with a giant group.

So, there it is. Other than spending my weekend at school, I accidentally locked myself out of my house for 2 hrs, and bought a rose plant I named Clara for $1.

So, back to the old grind. Finals are next week. I'm going to visit family in Pennsylvania on Friday. And I'm gonna usher on Wednesday for the matinee, Thursday, and Saturday. Ushering had earned me more in three days than a week in the gallery! Wow! I will soon be able to buy a new camera! Then my blogs won't have to be solid blocks of text anymore!

Bye for now, loyal readers! XD

So, how was your weekend?

Monday, March 1, 2010

Oh, no!

My camera is on the fritz, so there may not be any updates until I figure out what is wrong, or I can purchase a new camera. I don't have the funds for a new camera.

So here's some other stuff to tide all you rabid readers over.

I bought art! The last gallery show was a student photography show, and it was amazing. These only cost me $10 a piece! Aren't they beautiful???

This here was my first art project of my senior year, when I was in my Batman phase... that I never left.
Graphite and Prismacolor pencils 22 in x 26in

This pic here I love very much, because it taught me that I could do big pictures on my own. And he's my favourite charcter from Pirates of the Caribbean, he's just so cool-looking!
Charcoal and chalk pastel pencils. 14in x 17in.

And this one I did during one of my snowed-in weekends. This movie was awesome.
Charcoal. 14in x 17in.

All the art by me will be for sale during my third-of-an art show in April.

That's all for today! ... and probably for a little while. Bye, everybody!

A question for you:
What type of art is your favourite?
