Livejournal I miss you
I feel that its been a while. I played with Myspace, but that's subsided. Now it's all about facebook - and is all that sharing really necessary? I like it because I can see what everyone's doing. But then they can see everything about me. A neat thing happened the other day, my friend Michelle from the fourth grade (yes the fourth) and my old pen pal when she moved to Arizona, contacted me. I was shocked. But its neat to catch up. I miss the random polls and quizzes - things that I can read years later and see whats changed, whats stayed the same. I like, for instance, to go back and read what I've posted here over the years. I like that it stays there. This is like my digital diary, and a good place to check in every once in a while.

New things:

New Job: I am Chief Coordinator for a promo items company. I do some graphic design.

Art: I've currently got an animation in a show at my friend's theater company. Its my first Flash animation in years. The play is called "all in the timing" (irony, no?) and the credits list my name alongside Dali and Matisse. It made me feel good to see that, yet also humble because I'm no where near their level in talent. I want to do more though, and it's kinda inspiring. I'm getting to do small things, art wise. I need to do soo much more I think.

Boyfriend: Nick and I just celebrated our second anniversary. He made me dinner and gave me a necklace with my birthstone in it. I was amazed, I love it. I've never had something so nice.

Family: Mom and Dad are doing ok as far as I can tell. I don't hear from them very often, except for mom calling me at work on my cell phone when she needs things. Pete seems to be doing ok, he's thinkn of finally moving out of the house, though I won't believe it until he's out.

Things I hope to accomplish:

1. create more art, finish some projects i have in mind or started but haven't followed through.

2. de-clutter my stuff

3. Continue playing my guitar. Maybe sign up for another class where I can play my guitar and sing, I loved being in the Beatles ensemble the last few semesters, and was sad to have to stop for the winter but it's just too cold for me. And now I don't know what class I'd like.

4. Focus is my main goal.

5. Be an artist and animator. Better said would be an artist involved in animation. I also must say that illustration is my key interest, I would like to illustrate children's books. Illustration and animation kinda fall in the same category in my mind.

Favorite song at the moment: whoa, hard. I'm listening a lot to Pandora. Brandi Carlisle is still up there as a favorite performer, Fine Frenzy too. Decemberists and Hot Hot Heat when I'm feeling dark.


Favorite color: indigo blue

Favorite drink: V8 splash with a splash of rum or vodka, lots of ice, and a blender.

Think that's it for now.

hello!!!
Went to Vegas with Nick for Valentines. But it was a Christmas gift. Extraordinary fun times were had. Now I'm trying to suppress a minor cold that I seem to have caught. I'm blaming the internet.

Current Mood: amusedamused

freelance
I'm thinking of starting to do freelance work. Lucky for me a few of my friends are freelancers. I'm into doing illustrations so in the next few months I'll be working on that. And animation. I was kinda dissapointed with my school not having a portfolio/reel class hence me never having one. Hope that maybe I can knock out a few ideas and get paid to do something I love.

The last few months have changed me
Well it's been more than a few months, but I really wasn't counting.
It all started last July with a midnight screening
and a last minute one at that...

where have I gone to!
i've been busy seemingly traveling all over the place. Many things have happened since the last time I posted here. I leave at the end of July for Europe. My Grandfather died in May and I'll be visiting his gravesite. And my cousin David's getting married. And I'm going to that wedding. So it's gonna be like a funeral and a wedding. And then there's all the work I've been doing, or attempting to. I've also been workin out. And goofin off. I think the goofin off is the best part. :)

Hope everyone's doing well!!

And Summer Abounding in all Glory
I walked by a black igloo and giant raven this morning. It's not the medication talking. No, really I did. Yes, I am sick, I have a cold, but the mentioned pieces are part of an exhibit in artopolis which I walked through this morning on my way to work.

How do you catch a cold in such warm weather you may ask? I didn't catch it this weekend. I'm going to blame someone from last weekend, of which I have no name to give because I'm not entirely sure who gave me this flu/cold. All I do know is that I did not get to revel in the warm breezes that graced Chicago this weekend. I spent my time hidden away battling orcs (via warcraft) and my cold. At least there was an open window through which the gusts of wind accosted my stacks of papers, balled up tissues, tea, and knick-knacks.

I also began to finalize my plans, or put into place, plans of travel for August. My cousin is getting married and I will be traveling to this distant far off land. Only thing is the flight paths seem to leave me stranded in a near-east city for a inconsiderate amount of time. There seem to be connecting flights early in the morning that come close to the family hometown, but yet they miss the flight into the main city. So I'm at loss to find a decent flightplan to our family's little area of the world at the moment without having to spend money on a hotel or sit in the airport for 9 or less hours in the middle of the night. Each way I plan it I seem to be cutting it awful close to the wedding date on Saturday.

I look forward to my roadtrip with my Uncle and cousin to Rome during my stay-we'll be driving cross-country in that case, so no worries about plane flights. My uncle may surpise me with a place closer to rome, though I hope that I do get to see that wonderful monastary/cliffside retreat that I stayed at last time. It was a wonderful, hidden place overlooking a canyon with groves of olive trees and wandering grape vines under my window. It used to be a temple to Diana before it became a monastary to St. Michael. There's tons of caves in the canyon where the old monks used to hide themselves away, since they were hermits. It's quite beautiful there and nearby is a wonderful little town that should be having their city festival when we get there. Last time they had hours of fireworks that I was too exhausted to watch. I listened though. I enjoyed watching the sun set behind the aqueducts and through the church steeples on the other side of the canyon too. Such a peacful place away from the bustle of Rome.

To think I'll be there again!

oh I'm an artsy nerd...as if I needed a quiz to tell me soo
What Be Your Nerd Type?
Your Result: Artistic Nerd
 

Whether it's painting, sewing, drawing, arts and crafts; or just splashing paint onto a canvas and calling it art; you mostly fit this description. Lots of people envy the artists, but be humble and keep working on it. There is a shortage of true artists today who actually contribute anything to society.
