floral tuesday

currently: writing my last two papers at college

i'm sitting in a study lounge in my building trying so hard to get work done.
BUT IT'S SUPER HARD WITH IT SO NICE OUT AND MY SYMPOSIUM
COMPLETED. the symposium went really really well & and i am so grateful for
all of those who came [including lexie, my mom, and my sister who came from
china and surprised me!!] i couldn't have done it without the support and encouragement
from my friends and family so THANKS!

all i have left are two final papers, so please please, send me some
good vibrations and energy to do this. i hope to be done by friday so i can make
the seven hour drive to kentucky to be with clay before seniors and GRADUATION.

14 May 2010

i graduate in 22 days.

So can you honestly blame me for not being on here more regularly? I've been running
around campus trying frantically to tie up loose ends, while simultaneously trying to
keep my head on straight. Every single person I am close with is going absolutely nuts
and we're all freaking about about what happens next. My only advice is, NEVER
GRADUATE. Well, that's not all true. I'm pretty pumped to receive my degree and more
excited for the great adventure of next year & applying for graduate programs. My
art history symposium is this coming Wednesday, and I need advice on what to wear.
I'm thinking of business cowgirl, since I'm talking about the Western frontier and Warhol,
and I've basically been living in my vintage cowgirl boots.

I'd love some advice, or even a pep talk! WISH ME LUCK.

Here are some pictures!
