In other news, my family is moving the new place officially one week from Friday. I'm really excited and nervous, but it's going to be great, I know it.
Leandra visited, and it was amazing. I spent a lot of time in The Spaceship this past weekend, and I really enjoyed webcamming from the closet. This past weekend was great on campus. Nick Regiacorte did a poetry reading with this guitarist he met on a Fulbright trip to Florence year ago, and it was really a beautiful experience. It was nice to hear him read and the guitarist play, as they bounced energies and inspirations from one another. It also solidified that I want to study abroad in Florence with Regiacorte next fall, it's going to be amazing. Artsplosion! the open art collective performance and visual art show at the other Spaceship was amazing as well, and it was totally awesome to see that Regiacorte and the guitarist came to do an encore performance. The bluegrass band from Galesburg was probably the highlight of the night, although Ben Scott's dance duet was pretty great. The party at Sigma Nu later on was really awesome too, which made for an overall great night, not to mention Leandra got to be here for it. Thrifting was great on Saturday and I got the best fur hat ever. I'm hoping to represent Russia on United Nations Day next week by wearing it.
OH TWO OF MY PHOTOGRAPHS GOT SELECTED TO BE PUBLISHED IN CATCH, THE LITERARY AND ART MAGAZINE. That's the big news for me. I should write more, but I'm too busy living and stuff.
Love, love, love, Sandy

class, as in, I'm getting a B+!!! That's the highest grade I've ever
gotten in a science class. I have some art history studying to get
to but I'd just like everyone to know that yesterday my enviro class
met and had our class on the top of the science building. We talked
about population growth and defended my right to have babies. It
was the hottest October 5, ever recorded in Galesburg history. It's
been a hot few days, I hope it turns into fall soon, so winter will
start and then we can have winter break. Oh and my Jens Lekman
tickets arrived in the mail yesterday. LEANDRA COMES SOON.
Happy 21 Mari-san!

I just bought two tickets to see Jens Lekman in Chicago on Friday November 2, now all I need is a date! I'll find someone I'm sure, maybe I'll make Ashley come with me, or Schmathy even though she doesn't really like Jens (how couldn't she though). I've been listening to all sorts of good tunes lately, but Jens seems to be my weapon of choice, and that Ingrid Michaelson song from the Old Navy commercials "The Way I Am". It's pretty much the best thing ever right now.
Last weekend I went to Iowa City to see Ashley, Todd and Ben Kweller for free. It was totally great, and Kathy came with me, which was really nice. We had hot wings and pizza while watching Romeo + Juliet, and it was a really nice nice night. Saturday night was really fun also. Kathy and I made Sangria and had a nice time talking with Adam Soto, and shooting hoops with the transfer boys on our floor was great! The Control Party at Jazz House was really fun (once it got started), and after the party we hit up The Spaceship, where we did our thing, and then watched some Hanson and Aaron Carter videos. GREAT weekend.
Classes are classes. I'm really liking my environmental teacher, but I'm not having the easiest time with the tests, which I thought I would for some reason or another. Art History is going well, and I'm kind of really digging pre-historic art. Kathy and I are totally down with Aegean art, seriously, it's really great and organic and colorful.
Um what else can I say? My suite is really great. My classes are all right. I'm probably taking Art History 106, 19th Century Art and Architecture, and Printmaking next term (two of the classes Kathy will probably be in!). I really love art history, and I look forward to continuing my love of it next term.
No updates on the gallery, but I'm hoping some are soon to come.
I swam laps tonight with Abby, and I'm really loving our weekly excursions to the pool.
Oh, I have my radio show Thursday nights at 7 Central so if you're interested in tuning in, check out this site: http://deptorg.knox.edu/wvkc/.
That's all for now readers, talk later.
