Time got away from me.
Barnabas decided not to stay with us. Turns out, his old owners abandoned him, so someone near there started feeding him. It's only a few blocks down, so we know where he's going now, but that's where he's decided to stay.
We got a new dog - a lab-pit mix. Before you gripe about pit bulls, the logic behind breedism is the same behind racism. He's about a year, black with brown eyes, and very loving. He chases his tail and sleeps with his eyes open.
My college had an art show, and I won an honorable mention in drawing for Ace Pride
(which I was really disappointed about, having submitted many more and better pieces), second in 3-dimensional for Prom Box
, and first in 3D for Battle Dance
(however, there was only one other entry that wasn't mine, and it was bad). I got $25 for my 1st place.
I did some sketching at my local zoo. I'll post the results if anyone is interested.
For my final project in art this go around, I did a series of pictures of the entire male and female reproductive systems (one just a female, one just a male, one two females dancing, one two males dancing, one male and one female dancing). They have different builds and are exemplifying the sex they represent. It's also criticizing how people reduce each other to a person's reproductive system (vulva = woman and all those prejudices, penis = man and all those prejudices).
I finished my first year of college with a 3.8.
My hair, which has been down to my waist for quite some time, has been cut to just below my shoulders. Not sure if I'll update my fursona to reflect such.
I went to MagiQuest with my sisters, one of which is kalatamorax
, and a friend. Unfortunately, driving 3 hours to, flicking a wand around, driving three hours back, and then doing several caricatures the next day did a number on my wrist. Fortunately, it's not carpal tunnel syndrome, because it was all of my fingers being affected (CTS does not affect the pinkie).
SPEAKING OF CARICATURES, I'm hoping to do them at my local zoo as a summer job. I need to save money up for college. D: So far I've signed up with two temp agencies and interviewed at a local place that does art classes for all ages. The art class place wanted to hire me as a person and for my skills, but they could not afford to take on a temp.
About 20 mommy bees have decided to make their nurseries in the earth of our front lawn. Luckily, if you don't poke them, they don't poke you.
My senile cat has an upper respiratory infection AND a receding gum line. Yaaaaaaay.
I was in a car wreck yesterday. I was turning left, saw no one coming from either direction (neither did my passenger on my right), but apparently someone was coming from the right, because we got t-boned at at least
45 mph (it's likely it was faster due to how far around we turned). We would have been much better off if I had hit the gas, but I unfortunately hit the breaks out of panic. I'm considered the "contributor" instead of at fault due to it being an accident. However, my poor baby is totaled. ;_; It was a good 5 months. I hope to get another Cube or similar car. I'm only bruised, as is my passenger that sat behind me (I had 2).
