hi! I’m tired and hungry. I just wanted to give a quick progress… update? class is over- so I’m staying behind to finish this. just because I’ll be gone this weekend- going on another trip, so the flower studies I mentioned before- that was from last week- amplified over here on this painting. and it’s about halfway done, so the motif I developed should go over it, something kind of like that. this is nice but- it’s kind of… generalized…or just what ever it is you know, just flowers. But I’m excited to finish it up with this. I really overestimated the red and pink that I needed, so I’ve done this a few times this is what I’m doin’ last one. this balloon is here because it’s leftover from my birthday when you study it’s very helpful to write it down because especially if your test is in written form, so what I do is write the exact same information over and over and over again and maybe put… I don’t know, a dash next to things that you didn’t quite get so you can remember that, and reinforce it in the next round. so what I’m doing- just writing the same thing over and over again on scratch paper. hi! today’s halloween, so I don’t really have any eloquent costume, I bought these devil clips a year ago, when they were one dollar on sale, and now I can use them, finally this is just my very simple costume, I’m gonna go hand out candy after class at 6 with my boyfriend at his house- and that’s basically it and we might watch stranger things 2, if we have time happy halloween to you. this is how my piece turned out. it’s not bad. I think it’s missing things ‘here’ and ‘here’, it was mentioned in the crit as well, and now we’re just on a break. Of course I’m always the only one in the classroom when everyone else is on a break, just because, I have nowhere to go. just gonna go on my computer and do some reading I guess can I just say- THIS. is. soo GOOD oh my gosh. soo good *crunch* I painted my nails today, and, basically however long my nails are is just how long I haven’t gone climbing because everything kind of comes with a trade off, if I wanted to focus on my school work and editing, I can’t exercise as much as I want to. but I’m really surprised that they haven’t snapped yet I think it’s because I’ve been taking vitamins so steadily, they’re just really strong! I know that this is not like super long, but I was never able to see my nails from this angle there’s a different perspective because my desk is actually facing this window, my dresser used to be here; I decided to swap them, for no reason actually. but I decorated my walls some, and I’m gonna do… some kind of tour video later other than that… I don’t know why… my throat feels kind of sore, which is why I’m not projecting my voice do you have those moments where you’re not in a bad mood, conciously, but you feel like you are, or you’re not in like, a concious positive, or good mood? and I conciously make the effort to think about everything I have to be grateful for, and it works, but then it’s like a jumping back and forth- back and forth but.. it’s fine like, it’s great. I think maybe I just have some stress from the finals that have already been assigned, makes me nervous, but I know I can do it, just because, there’s times in the past where I’ve been assigned things and I’m like “I don’t think I’m capable of doing it” and I end up learning how to do it, so now I’m trying to trust my experience and knowing that I’ll figure it out oh and maybe I could show my painting… cus I’ve been working on that, and I never really got to finish what I was trying to say so this is what it looks like, and it’s a little small. overall I’m pretty satisfied with it, I think this is the one painting assigment I’ve been invested in all year and I had a good crit; the teacher’s only comment was that I shouldn’t have cropped it, and I didn’t want to, but after I started freehanding the outlines and everything, I realized that the body was kind of small in proportion to the rectangle I didn’t overthink my intent, I depicted a pose of her that is very modest, as if the viewer is staring straight at them, kind of just humanized her, for everything that she is, this very complicated, kind of depiction with all the different colors- unrealistic colors- not glorifying, not critiquing, so yeah, that’s just my depiction what you working on? making an illustration about any fact I choose, so I’m drawing chanel no.5, and all the notes, that go into chanel no.5 because it’s the first perfume that features an artificial fragrant called aldehyde, this is my original flower, but I decided it was too detailed, too many colors; but I had a lot of fun making it because the ipad gives you like a watercolor- o – a watercolor brush now I’m just changing the color because I wanna do like, a more monochromatic palette sigh it’s been really cold lately, so now I have to wear- actually I’ve always been wearing thermal wear, but leggings, always on by the way, do you feel like the audio for this is really bad, because I have accidentally bumped my camera a couple times, and i think maybe, that made the mic kind of weird, because I always hear that sound in the back, so I’m sorry for that ‘noise’ today I definitely have to wash my hair because it feels kind of itchy, also because it’s been so cold, I guess my scalp has been dryer. oo- what happened here. I left my bangs like this because, you don’t really need to do your brows right now I have… 15 minutes until I need to go. okay- I’ll do really quick makeup. I;m gonna use a dull, kind of fat, brow pencil to just fill it in quickly good enough I’m not gonna wear foundation, but I will put on sunscreen, because even if it’s cloudy, the UV rays are still there. yesterday I found a little flower on the street, and it was just broken off of its stem, so I picked it up, and brought it home, now it’s hanging out on my wall it’ll be so weird if I wore both tho random reminder, I might actually go thrifting, because savers is going to be having like a 50% off sale i believe? I got it in the email. gonna go check that out. my highlighter completely cracked- don’t know why, I didn’t drop it or anything. almost out- what should my next cereal be? I’m just gonna go to my morning class now. It’s only an hour and a half, so I just bring my computer, I don’t need much else, and the walk is pretty short. I’m back from class now, and I’m gonna have a little lunch. and start editing before my studio today. which means I’m gonna finish this vlog right now before I film new footage for what ever I’m up to this weekend. I’m kind of low energy… and I have… just a lot that I am kind of actively working on ignoring, because- oftentimes, if you feel stressed because there are so many things going on, repeating that to yourself would not get any work done, so you might as well just like- do one thing at a time, I’ll see how it goes. I’m really grateful for everyday, it’s such a blessing, to have all these challenges that would help me grow as a person and that’s kind of what I remind myself of when I feel overwhelmed. alright. for now, I will see you soon- I hope that you have a lovely rest of your week. love you, bye!
