UPDATE || back again.

I am finally done with finals. I've designed and constructed a cute 40's-inspired (but maybe not as much now) dress; I've adapted a novel and directed it (it was fabulous); I've written a literature review; and wrote a business plan (which was well-received).

I am proud of myself for accomplishing this and more as there are little niggly things that go along with all of those assignments.

I am also very tired. Very tired. And my house is a mess.

Besides that, I am glad to have a bit more time to blog. Although I've had lots of schoolwork to do, I spent a lot of time thinking about stuff. Because thinking is what I do. So sometime between now and . . . I don't know, you'll be able to read my ramblings about love, marriage, growing up, body issues and stuff like that. That's all been on my mind. And I like to say what's on my mind, or at least I am starting to begin to say what is on my mind. Ha. How do you like that?

Anywho, I am excited to be done with the semester. I've met some really great people. I've learned a lot about theatre and myself. I'm figuring out where and how I fit into the scheme of things. I even have a chance to feel giddy once in a while (or more than once in a while). Life is good. I think that's the gist of it. Life is just good. It may not be terribly adventurous or even the exact way I want it to be. But it's good.


now playing: the entire christmas musiq album.

IRL || things that made me happy this week. with exposition.

It's the time where all of the final projects are due. I've been holed up in my room or the library or some computer lab every spare minute I've been getting. Kind of. Anyway, the fast-approaching finals can be cause for sadness at times, and certainly stress. Luckily, I've been afforded a few smiles here and there:

I got paid.
Therefore I bought new earrings and some warm boots.
The earrings have Africa cut outs. Really cute.

I got told "I like your look."
It's nice to get complimented on your style. I've been doing new things with how I've been dressing.

I saw my sorors.
They're cool. I love them. Lots of hugs were involved.

Work hasn't been super boring.
That's good, right?

I get to chat and talk and now, tweet with someone special when I get breaks and/or bored.
And so I get laughs and warm-fuzzies from far away.

I chatted with my sands for sands chat.
It's always lovely.

I'm busy.
And even though it's a little stressful, life is still good, in general. And I can focus. Mostly. Heh.

IRL || finally.

I am nearing the end of my 3rd semester in grad school and I must say, that this semester has been the most intense semester I've ever had in my entire educational career. I've been a researching, costuming, surveying, business planning, adapting and directing madwoman.
It will not end until the 17th.

I'm glad I have supportive and understanding people in my corner because I cannot stop until the last project is done. I'm also thankful for the emotional stability I've had lately in my life. I'm so thankful for where I am right now.
