Something I've been thinking about
I’ve been thinking about the fleeting nature of everything. Photography, drawing, memories, all of it. Photography lets us immortalize what we see, and can express emotion about what we see. Drawing can do the same, except on a much more personal level. We always have our cameras strung around our necks and we constantly snap photos of everything we see or find interesting. Then we take...
Considering Something New
I’m thinking about keeping this blog, but not having a live feed be posted to Facebook. Instead, I want to start another blog that is solely for writing. I will provide a link on this blog for those who are curious. I will post links to Facebook when I have something worth reading on that blog. Or I will just link both to Facebook. Any considerations?
As Promised, a Journal Entry from Spain
2/11/11 - 7:57 pm I’m sitting on a plane to Barcelona. I can’t say too much; close quarters. I’m surprised I’m able to write legibly. This is a smooth plane ride (for the most part). I’m only writing in here out of fear for the revelation of the material in my other journal. God knows I can’t help my own wandering eyes; what makes you think anybody else...

So my roommate from the ‘09-‘10 school year (and future roommate of the ‘11-‘12 year) makes dope mixes. Do yourself a favor and give this a listen, and buy it. His boy (and by extension my boy) Mikey D needs some $$ for some equipment. Support your ragers!!
Let’s make something happen.

Still sitting in midterm reviews
Still would rather chew off my own leg. At least I’ve been reviewed already and bought my new sketchbook and set of pens. Still feeling apathetic and bored. Still a lot on my mind. No matter; even though I have a lot to do until tomorrow night, I feel good about getting out of France for a week. By tomorrow night, I’ll be in Barcelona with a great group of people.
I’m sitting in mid-term reviews right now. Well, not sitting in them, but sitting in another room with other kids, all of us avoiding the inevitble boredom and apathy we’ll feel while viewing other people’s projects. I just want my project reviewed so I can go to the art store and get a new sketchbook and set of pens. So many other things on my mind.

To Those Who Complain There Is Not Enough Writing...
more writing, less pictures. i promise. in the meantime, enjoy this poem i wrote over a year ago: White Wine It’s alright, it’s okay Maybe some other time To be completely honest It would be better if you came back It’s been a while You should sit down And drink some white wine Let’s talk about old times Let’s sit by the fire And lock all the windows Let me get you some sweets This’ll be fun As...
