Time:11:36 am.

just finished this one the other night. I would like to sell it for $45, but first make high quality prints to sell at $10 each. Bossman is setting me up with access to wholesale printing which will be a lot lighter on my wallet. I want these prints to be the best possible. I can't wait to begin selling and giving these babies away. If all goes according to plan, I want to do a big animal series. all 6X6. Zebras, antelope, whales, rhinos, hippos, etc

in other news, I'm living in Geneseo for the summer. & it's fucking awesome. Everyone told me I'd regret my decision, but not at all. I finally love my job. I love my house. I love my friends, though some of my new favorites are already done with their 6 week summer courses (HOW DID SIX WEEKS GO BY). I'm going to the Jazz festival tonight to dance with Arielle &&&& tomorrow hopefully see Toy Story 3 with mr. Argennaaaa.

I'm currently reading a book about love (All About Love by Bell Hooks) it was lent to me by an old lover (god i hate that word, but we never dated....so what am i supposed to call that). btw that kid could totally use a re-read. Anyways it has me thinking about love and what it means to me, have i ever been in love, etc. Avery & I debate "love" weekly. I'm totally losing that debate, i think in general i need to become more proactive about my opinions. Avery's a kid who really puts deep thought into each meaningful aspect of his life, and i envy him for that.

I'm at work now. i've got a bag of stuff for winston, including my favorite cardigan that he asked to borrow. let's see if he comes to get it before he leaves. hey, if not...I still get my favorite cardigan for keeps :)

Subject:semester reflecting
Time:2:16 am.
Home seems more precious every time i come back here. The last two weeks have been socially and academically stressful & I needed this break.

The semester has been going well though. I fell in love with drawing naked people--finally! something I'm good at! The figure drawing final is to draw a life size naked self portrait. If that's not intimidating, I don't know what is.

I have a comfortable schedule, a lot of breaks for naps. Every Thursday I go to radio with Lily for 2 hours and then drink wine with Joe shortly after. I spend my Friday and Saturday nights in the company of Emily, Sean, and John. We drink too much vino and eat too much cheese.

I've made a lot of close friends this semester, but lost a few too. One of my housemates no longer lives with me and that's taken some adjustment...Next year should be fun though...me, mel, em, and marie. I've been really upset all semester that lily is leaving. I'm worried she won't visit, 6 hours is quite a trip.

I've only been home for 5 days and I'm ready for Geneseo again. I shocked my aunts last night by telling them that I could be comfortable living in the country for the rest of my life. I just love it.

happy autumn.

My fall break starts tomorrow. Me and Joey will be driving down together. 5 hours of jam bands? I should hope not!

I'll be dropping him off at the train station so he can visit with Cari in NYC all weekend. & I'll pick him back up on Tuesday and we'll make our way to Geneseo.

Life has been hectic these past few weeks. But it'll slow down in the weeks to come. My weeks have been pretty routine..classes monday through thursday, working a few of those days. And then every thursday I make my way to Joe's apartment where we kill a 5 liter of Franzia with some friends. My weekends are spent in the art studio, at work, and relaxing.

I work at a store called The Wearhouse now. We sell jewelry, hats, mittens, scarves, incense, tye dye things. It's enjoyable enough.

I've been to see Avery's band, A Very Valiant Duo, play a few times in the past weeks.  Me and Avery saw New Socks play in Rochester on Saturday. That was a fun time. Tonight, Avery is coming over to watch Iron Giant. I've never seen it, but it'll be a nice break from french studying.

Fall break is going to be great. I just want to spend time with my parents. On Saturday or Sunday, I'm going to Stormville with my parents to a HUGE fleamarket. I'm going to try to find Avery some ugly sweaters and sweet flannels for his birthday. :)

that's all for now.

Time:11:28 pm.
so. I work in Clarkstown Justice Court. I sit in a corner all by myself and staple papers and rip other packets apart. I'm sorting cases from the 70s. They all deal with marijuana or stealing shirts from bradlees or caldors. Talk about throw-back. Once in awhile I come across a case about a mystic burying evil auras in a gold box and scamming a woman out of 2500 dollars. Anyways. I'm there for the money. But since it's 9-5, m-f, I have no time to paint anymore. Or sleep in.

I work will all women. A bit of a drag cos it's all men-bashing and gossip all the time.. But the judges, police officers, others that pass through are nice. Today some guy in the staff lounge almost convinced me to go watch some of the court cases. But i'm used to my little corner and piles of paper and i'm not ready for any judge judy action. My boss is making me go in on wednesday though. So i can pretend to be interested in the legal system then.

I haven't seen any geneseo friends yet this summer. This is a problem. I'll see Mike & Joe in a few weeks, Lily too. Sarah and Emily soon. I just want to move into my house and host cocktail parties damnit.

I'm starting to get my head wrapped around the things i want. I'll put tired affairs to rest and move on. September will be a good month.

some goals of the week: Get Jesse's painting DONE, start Averys. Drop off 6 rolls of film to be developed. Finish off the roll in my camera first. Don't drink too much at the party. Pay back mom $200.

Found another picture that Winston took. This one was one of the best days of my life. My art show with Lindsey & Molly in August of 2008.

Winston took this picture of me on one of the saddest days of my life. I look at it a lot. Even though I carry the prayer card in my wallet, this evidence seems more tangible.

about to head out for the night. thought i'd post quickly.

I've been playing a lot of pool this summer. Spending time with friends has been real good. I started a new painting. It's really soft, of feathers and triangle patterns. It's for myself. It gets me really excited, to work on something that i think is really great.

I went to the bronx zoo with lena & sam and snapped some good pictures. I cried when i saw the giraffes. no one saw. I couldn't get a good picture of them and it made me more sad.

Yesterday I spent the day with Lindsey walking by Nyack beach. It was perfect weather with the river breeze. We took a quick ride into jersey to look around the camera store i like and then we found a sweet record shop with tons of things. Linds was stoked to find a mahavishnu orchestra album. I couldnt settle on anything and wanted to save my monies so i just bought a lot of film at the camera place for Arizona. That night i went to Liza's house for the first time. beautiful brownstone. i'm movin in. We drank and did the usual things. Played some games. I drunk text=problem. whatever, right?

I'm really liking Wooden Birds. American Analog Set member's new proj.

hmm you know what would be cool? If anthropologie would call me back.

Besides tryin to make a few bucks. I've been trying too keep busy by wandering malls, painting pictures, cooking meals, baking brownies, drinking nightly cocktails with my mom (vodka tonics today), reading a book. Tomorrow me & my dad are going to a camera shop to get the Olympus FTL cleaned//get some film. I went to Rite Aid tonight to see if i could pick up some film and had forgotten how obsolete it is now. They only had a 4 pack of 35 mm, but not the kind i wanted.

I want to go hang out with my brothers.

I know how badly I wanted to come home & all...but I made some good friends those last few weeks at Geneseo. Left a lot of loose ends. I know next semester will be good b/c of this. I've got a crush. I'm 13 again, obviously. It's all wrong in most ways but I'll see how it pans out in September.

Time:12:01 am.
I've been home since friday. Through being at school i've discovered a new love for Nyack & my family. It feels great not to worry about tests/deadlines. I can lay around all day & be a crazy cat lady.

I'm the first of the "group" to get home from school, the rest get home Thursday. Cay left today for Paris so I have two days to be a total recluse, my favorite. I have a lot of projects and a hopeful job to occupy my summer. I will learn to print, paint, and draw better, I will also learn to cook before I live in this house next year and must learn to feed myself:


Living with Mel, Sarah, and Lily should be pretty perfect. We get along well.

I was digging through some stuff under the stairs today and found this:

I'm pretty excited to learn how to use it. I'm going to bring it to Arizona with me. I'm really excited to have a family vacation and to spend more time with my two brothers. We're doing cheesy tours like an off-roading "pink jeep" adventure and seeing the night sky with a guide. But also seeing a fair amount of parks & doing a lot of hiking. We're seeing the Grand Canyon again. We're going to the South Rim this time. A few years ago we went to Las Vegas and the North Rim. It was easily my favorite vacation. The North Rim is less touristy and quieter. I remember laying on a bench looking at the sky at midnight  and it was a thrill to know that the huge canyon was right beside me with nothing in between. Of course the no-fence thing led to some pretty terrifying photo ops between me & the bros... The parents weren't happy when the film was developed.

Everything is drawing to a close here. And it feels like it's moving at the right speed. it's gorgeous out, 78 degrees, a little too warm. I gotta wake sarah up to go to Rochester again. I feel happy.

I've been having a weird day. I woke up angry with myself because i accidentally fell asleep drunkenly last night and missed a visit from W. The party was fun though, i was out of my element but meeting a lot of people. But when I got too messy, I removed myself and stumbled on home.

anyways. I woke up early today b/c i had plans to do gift shopping with Sarah in Rochester. by the time she was ready, it was 12:30. We went to a couple different shops that weren't all that great for what we needed so I gave up and dropped her off at home and drove back to Geneseo by myself. At home in Nyack, I drive around aimlessly at night with music on loud when i need to sort out my thoughts. I follow the familiar route 9w for awhile before turning back and driving around congers. Today, on my way back from Roch, I zoned out for a perfect 25 minutes. It was comfortable until i realized that I physically missed W. I always miss him on the long stretches of time that pass between our visits, but having him there with me all day thursday just heightened everything. I wish i could have my friend around all the time. for team naps and more listening parties. here's to dreamin.
