Weathering the storm. Already baked, had drinks with the neighbors, watched a ton of Sons of Anarchy, and photographed a lots of mommy blog posts. Now it's all about hanging out with these guys and trying to write an entire thesis.
Guess what day it is: Philly Photo Day! They've been doing it for a few years, and it's cool, you should participate. It's easier than most things you'll do today, promise.
I've written about it before, but basically - you take some pictures today, pick a good one, and send it to PPAC. They print it, and it's in a (fun, overwhelming) show in December. Do it. Take a picture of something (even camera-phone it, if you must). Have a photo in a show. K?
I'm thinking about doing something a little more abstract than portraity this year. Not sure what yet though...
So lately, I've been pretty wrapped up in school and a variety of part timey jobs (hanging out with kids, working at the brewery, and yeah, blogging). This means: less writing about the boring ins and outs of my life over here.
Never-the-less: some updates, a couple pictures, and maybe even life lessons, not in chronological order:
block printing and tea dying a cat dress, where MATH FINALLY COMES IN HANDY:
painting claws for a Halloween costume (lesson: make sure you have all the colors you're going to need, before you get too deep into this. Additional lesson: kittens love acrylic fingernails):
making a new lining for a bike basket. No lesson, just a good idea:
And here's some funny things I get to do for my freelance job - playing with coffee filters:
Anyways. Those things, writing a thesis, seeing movies, thinking about Halloween, regular stuff. Y tu?
Oh, and as a general update to my last post, Blanc is doing good, and stitches out tomorrow. They used the words conclusive removal, which means tumor is all-the-way out. Phew.
A few days ago, the vet found a mast cell tumor on MLB. Today my favorite buddy goes under the knife.
I'm pretty bummed out, but Cat Doctor says Blanc will be okay (he'll probably just have a dumb haircut, and he's pretty used to that.) Anyway, wish him luck, and he'll be accepting get well flowers starting Wednesday.
