Summer Schedule

Filed under Uncategorized by at 1:43 am on Jun 03 2011

I am so super bonus excited to be spending three nights a week, four hours a night at school drawing. Drawing! For a grade! I know it’s early days yet but I feel like I’m going to be sad when the session is over. Yes, I spent most of the class today learning how to draw a cup. But honestly. I didn’t really know how to draw a cup. And in fact I think it may still be beyond me. The teacher frequently cracks wise (including puns about “too loose” vs. “Toulouse”) but has an old fashioned love of phone calls. He says that he’d be up if we called at 4am, but his dog wouldn’t, and we should not wake up his dog.

I particularly love his love of journals, seeing as how I have one that I am sometimes obsessed with. He went on and on tonight about what you could put in it and I was so pleased with myself that I’ve already put all those things in the journal I already have. Well, not original poems. Other people’s poems only.

My other class this session is a simple 1 credit nursing class, known as “Trends” in which we all get depressed about The State Of Things Today and Further Wrongs Not Yet Righted. I am trying to convince my project group to do a thing about good samaritan laws if for no other reason than I saw an auto accident the other day and wondered if I should stop, and then seeing that there were a LOT of people leaping out of their cars to help, and then mildly freaking out, and then spending most of the drive home wondering about liability.

I am half an RN! If the run on sentences above are too much for you, recommend that I take a Xanax before I speak with you in person! I have verbal jazz hands right now.

Other Niblets:
– Currently obsessed with the idea of getting a Last Unicorn tattoo.
– Watching Twin Peaks again and basically it’s like watching for the first time, I remember nothing!
– I’m posting at almost 4am because our whole household is on insane summer hours. I am not sure how to fix it without getting a real job.
– I had a Magnum ice cream bar and I guess it’s pretty good but I can be satisfied by far less expensive Neapolitan over fresh banana.

    I have had tattoo thoughts again recently, but dear heavens, no. I need to save money for my big trip next year! Then I thought, maybe I will draw something, and maybe I will sleep on it and work on it off and on, and maybe JUST MAYBE I will get it done somewhere while on my big trip!

    We’ll see.

    I enjoy reading about your summer because for me, summertime isn’t all that much different. It still seems more fun, though.

    I know. We are still essentially hemmhoraging money while I am in school. I guess I have to remember that the planning and thinking and dreaming and buildup is a big part of the fun.

    I could not express the feeling of freedom I have right now. It’s not like I don’t have work to do, but it’s certainly different.

    Just wanted to say there is a giant warm spot in my innards for The Last Unicorn.

    Dit-to. I need to reread the book before I commit to ink though.

    Congratulations on being half an RN! That’s awesome!

    As a regular stopper for car accidents, I’m really pleased at the existence of Good Samaritan laws. [grin]

    No doubt. My understanding is that they differ from state to state, but since that is where my understanding ends, I feel I better brush up. I think as licensed professionals we do risk our licenses when we stop to help and are somehow negligent. though I don’t know exactly what conditions cause that.

    And thank you!

    When I watched the Last Unicorn (like 20 times in a row *cough*) as a kid, I remember the scene where Molly Grue first meets the unicorn, and always wondering what the hell Molly was freaking out at the unicorn about. Then I watched it recently and was like “OoooOOOoooohhhhhhhhhhh. Oh.” Reading the book has been on my to-do list for way too long.

    In any case, I would totally approve of a Last Unicorn tattoo. And YAY for being half an RN!
