So...shit! Six months flew by like that *snap*. I worked my ass off, got all As, and decided to treat myself to the summer off. I went through plenty of bullshit this semester, but all things came up roses in the end, and I'm looking forward to fall semester as the start of beginning of the rest of my life.
Being an art major isn't as easy as I thought it would be. Three hour plus labs, projects that seem to have no end, research for the sake of research...all bullshit, but worth every single second. I can earnestly (and with no false modesty) proclaim that I earned every grade I received this spring. It's difficult being an older student, mainly because I do what I do as part of my "last chance:" one part determination, one part denial, two parts I-ain't-gettin'-any-fuckin'-younger. The majority of my classmates (most of them disgusting troll children that smell of piss) fuck about class, glib and moronic as humanly possible, with no intention of trying whatsoever since mommy and daddy foot the bill. It drives me nuts the amount of latent talent they have which will possibly never be realized because of their generational apathy toward self-amelioration. In this, I've been able to draw out what's been hidden inside of me. I didn't think I could do what I am able to now.
Life Drawing was so fookin' awesome this semester, as was Fashion Illustration. Life Sculpture? Eep. I did rather enjoy Art History of Mexico, Central and South America. Before this, I hadn't studied in over seven odd years--teaching myself to focus like that and actually retain the information was a TRIP. I didn't think it was possible. But then again, I am the king of pessimistic optimists. The pseudo BF was extremely supportive (taking breaks to watch K-pop videos and Wolverine and the X-men and fuck around with our Poupees was such a stress reliever!) as were the friends I managed to make at school. I still don't really feel like I fit in with the art crowd nor do I think myself pretentious enough to consider myself one of the fashion kids. *shrugs* And what the hell is up with all these closet cases? OMFG. So gross. Yeah, I may be the token "straighty" compared to the rest of the Marys in our class, but EEIOU. Your pants are tighter than mine, dude, and that scarf isn't helping you seem any straighter, so stop taking to me about chicks. Really. And all the poor girls that think I'm actually FLIRTING. LOL Next semester is going to be fun.
To kick off the summer, I splurged on a gang of kicks and sexy summer 'fits, as well as a sleek new not-so-fauxhawk. I wanted to dye my hair brown or something, but I'm glad I decided against it. So few people are willing to sport natural black, and I think I'd look a little funkay with dyed brows and facial hair. I've been gymmin' hardcore, but the pesky doughy midsection just doesn't want to go away. >_<; But my back and arms are coming in nicely! LOL I've really turned my lifestyle around, so eating right, staying fit--it's become a way of life. My blood pressure has gone down, I have sustained energy and I sleep much more soundly nowadays. Additionally, I look better in clothes! It's amazing how different it feels to actually fit my clothes. LOL Superficial, yes, but it feels awesome to wear v-necks and above-the-knee shorts without looking (and feeling) like a busted sausage. Most of the time, at least. Hahahaha ~
So...yeah, toys!! Hurray for me: this summer belongs to me and my dollies! First order of business is to unpack all the girls and boys and get them back in displayable condition. *sigh* They've all been so neglected, it's like not even funny. My Bratz and Boyz are the worst off, but I should really get my FRs spiffed up before anything else. I've been working on a slew of projects in the last week, and I've found myself further along than expected, mainly cuz I've just been really excited doing them. Three hints: meow, SO HOT, and Model Behavior....
Happy Summer. Floccentric and the Frankenstein Rakugaki crew are mothafuckin' back, bitches! *manical laughter*
