The total lunar eclipse is tonight. I'm only wishing I can see it through all the snow and clouds. I'm getting a feeling that I won't, which is a bummer. I've been looking forward to it the past few days.

I was going to write something profound here, but then my coffee hazed mind shut off immediately before I could get my point across.

I walked around and shopped downtown today with CiCi. I really enjoyed walking down the street with all the Christmas lights and trees and other decorations that were getting covered by snow. It was a beautiful sight. It actually began to make me appreciate this holiday a little more.

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 have quite a busy week. My friend's friends are coming into town this week, so we've been planning special things we could do since they're here. Tonight is the Rehab Party at a bar. Tuesday, I want to go to the Shedd Aquarium since it's free tomorrow. Wednesday, I would like to go apple picking at a farm right here in Illinois. Thursday, my gallery! I hope my friends can make it out. It would mean the world to me. Friday, it's off to the Chicago French Market for cheap beers and Belgian Fries, mmm. Also, the full moon drum circle will be in full force, it's the last one of the year! Saturday is the only day I'm unsure of what's going on. Sunday, probably off to visit John's parents and help them paint some windows for some cash.

I'm going to have to start planning my trip to South Carolina and pick up tickets for the OK Go show. Things are looking quite bright these days Glad to be getting out more. I'm also really looking forward to getting out of the city. It's been far too long since I took a nice vacation.

I really love participating in galleries and going to exhibitions and meeting people, but this gallery I'm working on for Monday has me swearing off galleries for good. Just within the past 2 days I spent over $160 dollars, which is practically most of my paycheck.

You begin to lose the whole fun in galleries when you're spending every dime on prints and matting/mounting. I was lucky enough to get my photos mounted for tomorrow, if the girl at the camera store wasn't so kind and wonderful, I might be in a bigger hole than I am in now.

I'm pretty pleased with the quality of the photos, but I don't think I'll be looking forward again to another solo exhibition. At least until I am well off financially. Ow, my pocket hurts.

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.

I confined myself to my apartment today even though it was a lovely day outside. Hungover from last night. Drank way way too much. I had fun for the most part, but I definitely drank too much. Eeek. My head was pounding and I ended up taking, like, 3 naps throughout the day. So glad I was smart enough to request today off.

Eventually I worked up the energy to buy groceries and I made a very good dinner. I feel better about everything.


Bills, bills, bills. So this is when the fun starts, eh?

This is day 80! These days are flying by so fast. I always wonder what my collection will look like when I reach the last day. I'm kind of struggling with coming up with new ideas every shoot I take. I'm actually starting to despise taking photos of myself.

I have a fun weekend planned ahead. I'm waiting for tomorrow to be over with so I can enjoy my 2 days off this week. I finally got the paycheck situation sorted out. My pay stub had 20 hours listed when I worked 25 hours. They didn't take into account the Friday morning I had come in to be trained for the new position I was taking over and also being asked to stay an hour later.

I certainly hope this won't be a recurring thing.

There are so many things I would like to say today! But alas, I must get ready for work and will sadly be there until the end of the day. This will have to suffice.

Heels are by Rocket Dog. I love their shoes! Been wearing Rocket Dog's since the beginning!

I don't like this picture. Sorry. :\
