A Long Week That's Half Over

Okay. So I haven't written at all this week so I'm gonna try to get a quick update in. I have turned in my Serial Object Project for 3D this week. Here it is.

Then, last night we went to La Cabana for A Birthday Celebration! Happy Birthday, Brit! :)

And here is a Sarah Green Original.

Then, I had Typography today and turned in my AL designs logo. Here it is up on the wall for critique.

Other than that, I haven't done a lot today. Tonight, I did P90x Day 10! Yay.... Hopefully it will get easier for me next week. It's still whipping my butt. (today was an Ab Ripper X day)

Well, Now I'm ready for bed with my baby. Hopefully I'll have something better to talk about tomorrow.

More Later!

Pig Pickin'

Yes! It is that time of year again here, at Delta State! Pig Pickin'! This schedule pretty much shows how our weekend has gone.

Last night, we hung out and ate at the PMA Sinfonia tent. Mmmm... Hamburgers and sausage. So Good.

Today, Jeremy's dad came to visit and went with us to the Peprally, BBQ dinner and The Football Game. We won 41-37 against Henderson State. It was a VERY close game, which I've heard his our specially this year.

There's a little snapshot for y'all of the team, band, and cheerleaders when the team was running out of the tunnel. :)

Then, after the game, we came home and did P90x Kenpo X and MAN WAS IT HARD!!

Now we are ready for bed and hopefully we'll have more to talk about tomorrow.

More Later!

Good Ending To A Good Week

So, overall this has been a pretty successful week. I feel like I've gotten everything done that I needed to and I'm really excited for Jeremy joining Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. All of the brothers have been very nice and welcoming to him. (thanks guys)

Anyway, today was the kick off to the Pig Pickin' weekend! Yay! We watch the soccer games this afternoon. Then we cleaned house and got ready to go hang out with Jeremy's brothers at the PMA tent. We ate hamburgers and hung out. That's about it. Then we came back here and did P90x (which I have done on schedule for the past 5 days!!). All I have to do is Kenpo X tomorrow and I will have completed a while week if it. (because Sunday is the day of rest.) I'm proud of myself.

Other than that, not a lot going on here. I better go get some sleep before Jeremy's dad comes to visit tomorrow. Good Night.

Wednesday, September 22, 2010


Yesterday was a pretty good day. I went to 2D and got a new project that I think is going to be pretty cool. Then I came home and did the dishes and we had lunch. Then we watch Greek and hung out all afternoon. Then Jeremy went to La Cabana for dinner with Psychology Club. I had dinner at home and then went to Photography. I did some SERIOUS printing last night! I got 3 prints done in 2 hours! (super excited) Then I came home and Jeremy got ready for PMA Sinfonia (induction/first meeting). I did P90x day 2(Cardio X) while he was gone. It was HARD to keep up after Core on the first day, but I got through it.

After that is was time for a nice warm shower and to get into my pjs. :) by that time Jeremy was home from the meeting and we talked for a while and went to bed. Now I'm just up getting ready to make more art today. Hopefully it all goes well.

P90x Take 2!

Okay. So P90x didn't work so well last time because we had a break from school and Who Wants To Exercise Over Their First Break From School?? No one. So, I decided I am gonna do it early in the mornings before school or later at night after school. And Jeremy is going to do whatever it is that he does to get fit and sexy... It doesn't take much(stupid men).

Well, anyway, it was a pretty good Monday. I got an email this morning that Typography was cancelled and I almost cried. (WITH JOY!!) Then I went to 3D Design and work on another tiara and wand. I went back to the apartment to watch Letters to Juliet with Jeremy and have lunch. We had a nice time hanging out and spending time together, but then I had to get down to business and study for my history of photography exam. It was a lot of stuff to remember but I am almost positive I got an A. After that I came home and just watched Greek with Jeremy online and we had dinner and went to class. Then, that is when I did P90x..... Now my butt is whipped and I'm ready for bed. Well that's pretty much it for tonight.

More Later!

A Visit From Families

We had an eventful Saturday! My Meme, aunt Celeste, and cousin Beth came to visit! AND Jeremy's Sister(with her two kids) and brother(with his wife and baby). So we had a house full! We had to split up and go separately yesterday, which was okay with me. We went to lunch at A La Carte. It was very good, as usual. Then we went to McCarty pottery in Merigold. Meme got me another owl there! :)

Thanks, Meme!
Then we went shopping downtown. We went to almost EVERY store! After that, we went to walmart where I got Jeremy his new favorite thing.

Cereal Containers. :)
For those of you who don't know, Jeremy LOVES cereal and these will keep his cereal fresh.

Anyway, we went back to the apartment to regroup after all of the shopping and to pick up Jeremy because his family had to leave. Beth decided we had to have Lost Dog Pizza Co. for dinner. So, of course, we did. :) Which is fine by me. Their pizza and wings are always good! And it's even better as Cold Pizza breakfast the day after! Mmmmm....

Well after dinner, Meme, Celeste, and Beth had to head home. :( I wish they could have stayed but it was getting late and it's a long drive back.

Well, that's all for now! And thanks for coming to visit Everybody!! :D

So, it's finally Friday! :) My 8:00 was cancelled today, which means I don't have class until 10:00. Typography... Atleast it's my only class of the day. I am so ready for it to be over so I can work of my MANY projects this afternoon and get as much of the work as I can out of the way before my family comes tomorrow! I also printed 2 more pictures last night in the Darkroom! Here are some quick snapshots of them from my iPhone!

Tree Bark (up close)


This picture was the hardest one to do. I used 12 sheets of paper getting it right for the critique!

Well, that's all for now.

Another Busy Week

Okay. So this week has been almost as busy as last week. I've just been working on more projects and I learned to print enlargements of my photos now. Here is a sample of my cotton picture.

I will take a better one when I pick it up off of the drying rack later.

Anyway, other than that, we have been going to as many soccer games as possible. Trying to support the teams. We also have a lot of family coming up this weekend so I have to make sure the apartment is SUPER DUPER clean. The good news is that my 8:00 class on Friday was cancelled! So I have plenty of time to clean and get everything done(homework, etc.) before they come Saturday!

Well, that's all for now.

A Really Really Busy Week!

Okay. So I know I've been a bad Blogger, but I can explain. It has been a very busy week.

I've been working on another Typography project, that I will put pictures of up when I'm done.

I've also been working on using Photoshop in my Computer Graphics class. How's this? Lol

Then, I made a couple Photograms in 2D Design. That was fun. This one is made with a Lightbulb, beads, and Glitter.

After that, I learned to make Contact sheets from my negatives in Basic photo. Here's a little preview!

Not too bad, huh? :) So, like I said, I've been really busy. But now that I'm caught up a little I'm going to try to blog more(again). Well, that's all for now.

Other than that, I've just been really busy with school and spending time with Jeremy. :) well, I'm out of things to talk about for tonight.
