Another semester has come and gone. Ending with a bang and a sigh of relief. I was not sure that I would make it about two weeks ago, first with the art show, then final projects and finally exams breeding panic in the pit of my stomach.
The art show ended well, it was a very good show I believe the judges did a good job picking the artwork (with a few exceptions). I only entered only 3 pieces in this semester as opposed to the usual 4—unfortunately this was just not the greatest 'show' semester for me personally, but rather a growing semester because I was exploring brand new media. I entered my 'Oxymoron' piece, 'Cappuccino to Go' logo, and my 'Stair' photo. Both of my typography pieces made it in, but my photo did not... that was a little disappointing, and I took my first trip down the "walk of shame"—which is what we affectionately call the walk to the 2D room right after the show, because everyone knows that means at at least one of your pieces didn't make it in.
I wasn't completely heart broken, I did not have much confidence in my photo and so few photos were chosen this time around that I was not surprised. But it would not have killed me to have all my pieces make it.
Now I'm home at last! I have been much better about homesickness this year—but the last 2 weeks or so were difficult. I was ready for family, rest, and Christmas! Although rest was not something I found right off the bat—my first night I had a 'college age' party, the next morning (Saturday) I spent the day shopping and came back just in time to babysit for the rest of the night. I returned from that just in time to shower before passing out and going to church the next morning. Still going strong, after a long lunch with friends mom and I went shopping again and finished up for my siblings before I went back to the church to chaperone the youth Christmas party with Evan and Sarah (photo). Monday was a much needed lazy day!
Hopefully I will get a chance to update all of the artwork that I've done over the past week or so, but I do not have access to all of the files while I am at home...
