So, all my friends are starting Spring Break this week, but I am back in class. Why you ask? Because my college is annoying. But, I am glad that I had this past week off to get used to that awful time change. A lot of people use spring break to goof off, but since most of my friends were still in school, I used my time getting stuff done that I’ve been putting off for a while, and I learned a lot of really random lessons throughout the week.
Lesson Learned: I have too much crap. I went through a ton of old art supplies, clothes, and books to get my room organized for the coming spring, and I got rid of so much stuff. I am working on trying to live more simply, and eight bags later, I’m on my way to reaching that goal.
Lesson Learned: Chick-Fil-A’s new Frozen lemonade is delightful.
Lesson Learned: It takes a lot of work and time to make $44. Being an artist and entrepreneur in general takes a lot of time, effort and patience. But it’s worth it whenever you get to chat with Amy and get a drink at Marketplace Justice 😀
Lesson Learned: If I go to KCAI, I will be doing a lot of walking. On top of that, it takes a lot of work to go to this school. A lot of people feel that art school is a waste of time, but I would be thrilled to be part of the Illustration program at this school. They do a really good job of teaching students fine arts and the business side of art, so that way students are ready for work after school.
Lesson Learned: I look like Tinker Bell with lighter hair. It’s funny, cause my parents still call my Tink every now and then 😛
6) I saw THE THORN.
Lesson Learned: Passion plays can be amazing. I’ve seen and been in many a church play and a lot of the time they aren’t the highest quality. But this show was incredible. It is definitely on my list of things I want to do before I settle down someday. Here’s a link to check out more information about them:http://thethorn.net
Lesson Learned: Seven girls and one boy can indeed pull together eight costumes in thirty minutes to go to a 10pm showing of a Disney movie and look awesome. So much glitter and magic. It was a very good night 😀
8) I went and saw CYT’s The Little Mermaid.
Lesson Learned: CYT volunteers can make super beautiful sets and costumes (though I already knew this from past experience ;D). Musical theatre is wonderful. Also, shiny sharks are awesome, French chefs are hilarious, making a 6’2 guy a bird was a great choice, mermaids pull off Heelys well, tap dancing crabs are the best, and Flounder was a rock star. Congrats cast of Mermaid: You’ve got a beautiful show. I can’t wait to see it again!
9) I found an audition song.
10) I slept a lot.
Lesson Learned: I love sleeping.
I am back in school now missing my time off, but I am grateful for the time I had to get stuff done. To all my friends on Spring Break this week, I hope you have a great week and that you get some much needed rest and fun times!
Until Next Time,
