Whew! It's been an insane month! I just took the last test final last night and turned in my last projects tonight. I've only got one more final season 'til graduation! Yay!

Updates? Umm... I need to go through all my pictures to remember it all. Off the top of my head there was Turkey Bucks, Thanksgiving, Allie's birthday, Black Friday shopping and tons of homework (that whole weekend).

My Magritte presentation was awesome (for my Child Development Art class) and I had a monster project due for my comparative literature class (I'll show you the cute cover I made for it). That weekend was spent pretty much on homework too.

week's events included a cartoon about my life (we read Our Cancer Year & watched American Splendor). I couldn't come up with anything good so I drew Trena getting groped after Wicked. I realized after I'd drawn the preliminary sketches that I could have written about a couple other times that weird stuff happened to me and Trena (like that torrential downpour) so I just may do it for fun. I named my new comic The Adventures of Meghan and Trena. It made the girls in my group giggle (sorry Trena) and they all said they'd keep men nearby in H-town from now on. :)

Art class was a lot of fun these last 2 weeks as it was a bunch of presentations and hanging out with my professor. He's really passionate about art education (aren't all art teachers? :) ) and it has been an inspiring semester. I've already decided that I've totally deprived myself of FUN classes my entire college career. Granted, I've taken more fun classes and picked things I was more interested in as I went along, but I hardly count that. I'll be hanging out at the JC up the street this summer taking art classes... for fun!! Oh! Maybe a graphic design course! That would be a blast!

So... I took my final on Saturday. I was totally worried about that class, the final wasn't as bad as I'd thought and I'd gotten better grades than expected on a few things. Score! I've probably passed it. Last night's test wasn't bad either.

I pulled yet another all nighter last night though (for my art portfolio). It's still not complete... but it's awesome looking... that should count for something. At this point, done was good. I'm so tired. I'd had almost a whole Amp Tall Boy before 9 am (usually I'd nurse one until noon on a day like this). And what am I doing now? Typing instead of going to bed... welcome to my world!

Oh! I forgot... I also got 12 new shirts at Threadless the last few weeks. They're cute! This Christmas is also all about Internet shopping. It's SO much easier.

Wednesday I've got a church meeting and bridal shower on Thursday. But hopefully I'll be able to get on and post pictures little by little. I've got some really fun shots in there! (And great stories to share!)

Signing off for now,

I love that you are back! Yay! It's totally cool that you use me for your entertainment. It's true that weird stuff always happens to us when we are together. I can't wait to see pictures.
