One Month Left

I feel like things from this semester are starting to fall into place. Well, not all things; some things are falling out of place, but when it comes to school work, things are looking up.

In painting, my copy of a master is coming along really well. I am satisfied with how my efforts have paid off so far. For some reason I've really been able to get a lot done, which I am happy about. The goal this semester was to have straight A's and I think it is reachable... but it is still very dependent on several subjective assignments... so I guess we'll see.

Socially, it feels like things are getting out of whack for me. I think in the past month I've had a similar problems with two different friends and I have realized that I have issues. Sometimes I sit and think about how awesome I am and don't realize that I have faults until I am confronted with it by someone else. This has happened twice. And while I don't really understand one situation and the other, I don't feel I was at fault... it makes me question my skills as a friend.

I've always considered myself a fairly loyal person; I like to have fun and chill out, but I am going to have to be much more careful about certain aspects of myself... faults if you will. Lots of prayer and determination is on the menu.

Other than that, we had our last ChiO function of the semester yesterday. It was themed "Transformers Capture the Flag." I don't know why but some events just aren't as fun when you have to plan them yourself. This is why I don't want a whole lot of planning to go into my wedding in the future. I really want it to be quick, efficient, and easy.... okay an romantic and pretty... blah blah. But I just, I realized that I do not always enjoy the events that I plan. This is kind of a bummer.

I have a month: that is 4 weeks until I come home. It feels both soon and distant. Everyone else has merely two weeks. But I am staying for intersession. Two weeks extra of intense art history. Sounds splendid don't you think?

Anyway, I am going to be a resident assistant... again. for those two weeks. hopefully that can help pay for the cost of it.

I think that's about it for now.

  1. I understand about the whole "planning made it suck" part. I was always so worried about the details and about making sure everyone else had fun that I didn't have any fun. But I still enjoyed hearing other people say they had a good time :) I guess that's the consolation prize.

    And you're painting is going extremely well! You should be very proud of yourself and your growth throughout the semester!
