I've been bumping into my friends all this week, some of whom I rarely see, so it's been interesting to say the least. Considering it is the end of the year, I've been doing a lot of things differently that I could benefit from the new year. Such as, I cleaned my apartment today and got rid of things I no longer needed. I am making the effort to shape myself into a better artist. I've been drawing recently and painting more often. I am researching new places to live and jobs to apply to.

I don't know. It's time for a change. I have work early tomorrow, so I'm limiting myself from fun until tomorrow night's festivities. My last day will actually be on Monday since I started 4 days after the 1st. How exciting. :)

I actually did not end up going to the Inception party. Would've been cool, but I ended up going to a store to buy pants and art supplies to start my Etsy project. Sometimes I'm very indecisive and don't follow things through, and end up doing something completely different; I'm just weird like that I suppose.

I'm going over to my friend's house tonight for dinner and wine. That, I'm pretty certain I will go to, hah.

These next few months are going to be so crazzyy omg. I'm almost kind of scared.

I feel like I need to start leaving myself little notes every where that give me words of encouragement. Sometimes I find it hard to get through everyday. I'm realizing more and more how much time passes by. I have a stack of post-it's, so perhaps I should put some good use to them, and make myself feel better.

Back when I was in college taking all my art classes, the art club had this entertaining idea involving post-it's. They drew up diagrams to construct huge Mario video game characters (like Mario, and the mushrooms, etc.) out of only post-it paper. The result was pretty awesome. My photography class had a really huge window that overlooked part of the campus and there was the huge Mario planted on the window. It looked really great in the sunlight with all the different colors of post-it paper. I still remember watching those pieces of paper fall off one by one as the time went on.

I know, I should probably clean my camera.

Everything is a blur.

Ain't it funny how you get all these unexplained bruises after a night of drinking? I found a pretty wicked bruise on my left thigh, like...how the hell did that get there?!

I'm going out again tonight, even though I told myself I would chill out. Let's see how this night goes.

Well-rested. Today feels like a good day, despite having work later, but it's okay. The weather has been much better it seems like. I feel like Fall is beginning to mark it's presence, which is good. I'm excited for Fall. The Summer is always nice, but not as nice as Fall. I'm excited to watch the trees on my block turn in fiery colors and drift from the branches onto the cars and streets. I began to appreciate Chicago Falls not too long ago. Summer was always my season because of the lack of school, the late nights, the hot weather, swimming and soaking up the sun, flowers and plants growing about...but Fall, there's something very special about it.

I woke up early as John was getting ready to go to Jury Duty. I drank some coffee, made breakfast, strummed on my guitar, read a little bit, and listened to some music. I feel like I've been up for way too long and it seems like this day is slowly passing through. I sure hope it doesn't feel like this when I'm at work.

I still have to apply for school. I'm kind of questioning my decision to go though. I feel so happy and free without being weighed down by school work, but I know that it will most likely benefit me. Maybe I need a good push. Maybe this will inspire me, not only with my art, but inspire change in my life.

This weekend has been pretty interesting. Ready to get back into the world of working now. I've been trying to catch up on my work. I fell really behind when my manager was on vacation because I took on some of her load, and then I went on vacation, and nobody covered for me. Needless to say, things are pretty hectic.

My birthday is coming up in a few days. I like this time of the month, but I also get worried. When my birthday is approaching, it means I only have about a month left of the summer. Summer goes so quickly, doesn't it? This also means that school is starting again soon. I still haven't even applied yet. I'm wasting so much time.

I'm happy to say that I'm halfway through the project. I've been doing this for 6 months. Now only another 6 months to go! To be honest, I didn't think I was going to last 6 days, considering I never finish what I start, and I also grow tired of things easily.

I slept a while today. I also went to the local farmer's market. I got a basket of these beautiful, tart cherries from Michigan. I also picked up a loaf of herb and cheese ciabatta bread and a cantaloupe. I must say, everything is simply divine. Tastes delicious, and it's all organic and local.

The heat in my apartment is making both John and I completely delirious. I guess we're making it necessary for us to go out as much as we can so we can get some fresh air.

I could really good for a big bowl of authentic ramen right about now. I actually don't think I've ever had real ramen, only the kind in the packets that go for 20 cents. I feel like I'm missing out. I watched this movie "The Ramen Girl" about 3 times already. It's a cute story, and I like the message. I also love Brittany Murphy. It's sad knowing that she died.

It's been very hot lately. I practically walk around my place in my skivvies. At least the breeze from the lake cools this place a bit. Sometimes I wonder if my neighbors across the alley can see me walking around in my underwear. It's kinda funny to think about.
