First Blog, First Post

This is my first real effort at a blog... we'll see how this goes. =) I'll post photos of in-progress works (drawings, hairsticks, crochet, etc) as well as of new materials when I get them. ;) To give you an idea of what may be in the works. I'll get what I have up soon.

As for non-shop related stuff. I'm looking for a job. I *need* a job. I'm staying on campus over the summer and working an unpaid internship at a local museum. Which is great! I'm super excited about starting (on Wednesday!! Yay!!) but.. no money means no food. And that just won't do, now will it? So I'm filling out job applications and calling places every which way. Praying someone will call back or take me... I don't care what it is (as long as it's not in the food industry). I'll do whatever as long as I get paid for it. -sigh- But I've never gotten a legit job before so I'm flying blind. I have no idea what I'm doing...

And I have one thing to check off my list before I can call this horrendous semester over and done: my final paper for my military history class. Geez, this thing's a pain. This class has given me more emotional breakdowns than my senior thesis. Thankfully the final paper is somewhat easy and he only wants us to use our textbooks as sources (we only have ... what 5 for the class?) so I don't have to go camp out in the library. A small blessing. But I'm almost done with it! I have a little over a page to go before I hit the minimum 7pg requirement and I still have to finish the War of 1812 and Vietnam. Minimum limit's not a problem. It's just making myself focus on it long enough to finish. But then.. I just wrote a page and a half in under an hour. Not a bad pace. =) Let's hope that keeps up so I can do fun things for the rest of the night and let my brain take a break.
