Random update to inform you guys that I've been scheduled to photograph my large traditional pieces (AKA all I did this year
) for my AP portfolio on the twenty-second! I may want to do it sooner but this basically means I'm finally going to be able to post some things I've had for up to a year but couldn't photograph because I've been waiting to use one of the art department's DSLR cameras.
But yeah basically I've been missing round these parts mostly due to LIFE STRESS RESPONSIBILITIES. I had a job all summer and now I'm a senior who decided 5 AP classes and an extra science would be fun (well okay they are and aren't even very hard classes but so much work ugh). Oh and I need to send in my college apps ASAP if I hope to have a good future and play Pokemon X/Y this weekend buuut there are two tests on Friday.... I just want to sit on the couch and marathon anime and read all the books I have queued up and drink tea and basically just be a vegetable for about a month =^= Yes, I am the laziest person ever.
Oh, and I wish I had time to paint! My art class is kind of a pain lately, I really need to work on churning out quality art but we're doing paper cutouts which would usually be fine but um this is really bad timing. I'm all for getting out of my comfort zone, but this project doesn't even involve mark-making on a surface, and learning random skills like carefully cutting out shapes is just not a priority when UT closes portfolio submissions in like 2 MONTHS. I have maybe 5 things, tops, and need who knows how many more..... And I hate to keep whining, but today my teacher stopped by my table to tell me she didn't grade my still life because I had left it in my portfolio. So alright, I'll get it out to have it graded now, but then she tells me it's too late to enter it in. So why even tell me?? Now I'm just super mad at myself for assuming I could keep it in my portfolio like the last assignment. ffff
wow that got rambly fast oops sorry
