One More Day!

I can’t believe it, just one more day and I am done with college! It has been a really long 5 years of school and I felt like it would never end. But it finally is! I remember when I first started at community college and had NO IDEA what I wanted to do so I just took whatever general ed classes I could, I was floating, trying to figure out what to do with my life. But God was just watching me and already knew what would happen. He helped me realize my passion and  potential and gave me the courage to pursue art as a career and led me to SCAD. An amazing school where I learned so much and, cheesy as it sounds, made amazing friends and memories and really did have the time of my life, so far. No one can really understand what you go through as an art student or designer better than your peers. There’s nothing like finishing your projects at 2 in the morning while spray mounting things in your room and getting glue on the carpet (what? no I so did not do that last night!) Although I am really happy and relieved to be done with school, I will really miss my friends in Savannah! But I am really excited to go home and be able to stay there for awhile!

I had high hopes of getting a new car when I got home. My step-dad was so sweet and was going to give me his truck to turn in for the Cash for Clunkers program, well it just ended…so I missed it! Of course getting a new car will only happen if I get a job that pays fairly well, but now without that extra $4500 who knows when I will have the money! And I am kinda sad, because I don’t love my car and it sounds like a motorcycle ripping down the street. I already had a vision of myself driving down the streets of San Diego in a Cube…well hopefully someday soon!

Well I have been sitting here since 8am this morning, my professor is meeting with us 1 on 1 to see our final projects and class was over at 10:30 and I am STILL here waiting because my last name starts with “S’, great! And I have been doing nothing but surfing the web and doing nothing productive! I need a break for a bit! Yesterday I read this article about Annie Leibowitz, an AMAZING editorial photographer famous for shooing Demi Moore nude and pregnant as well as taking amazing shots of just about every famous person who ever lived! I saw her museum exhibit when it came to San Diego, and it was truly amazing! She is in major debt and recently borrowed like $24 million from an art broker putting her life’s work up as collatoral, the collection is worth an estimated $50 million, and if she doesn’t pay back her debt by September 8th she will lose her life’s work as well as her home! The article said that she is really bad at managing her money (obviously) and that she spends an insane amount of money on the shots, but she has gotten some amazing photos! It would really be a shame for her to lose her life’s work, I hope she can get it together! I bought Reba’s new album the other night, Keep On Lovin’ You and I have been listening to it non-stop! I really like it! I think my favorite song is Strange, I also love the video, so cute! So if you like country, I highly recommend it! It’s her 31st album, that is INSANE! Here are some cool pics that I found this morning while surfing, I guess I better get back to work! Have a good day!
