Happy Thursday, friends! This past week I have been incredibly busy and stressed. I had a ton of Urban Ecology and art homework that was due at the beginning of the week. My family visited this past weekend, and since I spent a lot of my time with them, I did not do much of my homework for either of those classes until Sunday night, prompting me to be on the struggle bus all week long.
For Urban Ecology, I had about 100 pages of reading, a lab report, and a test all due Tuesday. I did the majority of all of this work on Monday and stayed up till about 3 a.m. Well played, self. On Tuesday I turned in all of my work for that class, but had meetings out the wazoo, plus an art project to do for Wednesday, so the stress was far from over.
For my art project, we had to use another artist as a source of inspiration and create work from that. The artist I chose was Maria Magdaelna Campos Pons. She does a lot of photographic self-portraits, so by golly that is what I did for my project.
I took the pictures Tuesday evening and uploaded them into iPhoto with no problems at all. After that, I was whisked away to hours of meetings and practices, and did not get back on my computer to edit the pictures till midnight.
SURPRISE! iPhoto is broken and refuses to open! I restarted my computer about seven times, but to no avail. I had to put the pictures on my roommate’s computer and transfer them onto mine to edit them in Photoshop. Isn’t school fun? At about 1:30, two other art majors texted me saying they were still working on their projects. The three of us sat on the floor in the hallway, eating goldfish and working on our projects until 4 a.m. Good times.
Needless to say, I was very tired yesterday. I also had to dance at the basketball game last night, plus had a meeting after that, so yesterday was a very long day in which I was struggle bussing all day long. Fun fact: Around noon I decided to have some cereal in my room. Whilst chatting with my friends, I became so delusional that I was subconsciously cradling the cereal box like a small child. Neat.
Let this be a lesson to not wait so long to start your work because your iPhoto will screw you over, vastly complicating everything, forcing you to stay up into the wee hours of the night, munching on artificially flavored fish-shaped snacks.
Have a great rest of the week, and thanks for reading
