Life is good.

Life is good. It is also very busy, kind of crazy, full of work and classes and drawing and homework with reading and sleep and suchlike filling in the cracks--but life is fundamentally, firstly, and generally... good.

I have noticed over the last few weeks that I smile alot more than I used to. A gentle smile, as opposed to a slight frown, has become my neutral I'm-just-walking-from-here-to-there-and-thinking-of-nothing-in-particular expression. I had come to accept that a slight frown is just my regular neutral expression, that I'm not a smiley person. I still don't think I'm a smiley person, but that does not mean that I can't or won't be "neutrally happy", if that makes any sense to anyone but me. Devins favorite joke on me is, "Stop looking so happy, Sarah." Of course he means it sarcastically, but seriously--I don't want to stop, now I've learned how. :D

Second Day of Classes

I'm going to like my Tuesdays and Thursdays. My classes are New Testament, World Dance, Narrative 1 (which is going to be AWESOME), and Illustration 1 (which will probably be my hardest art class, and probably my hardest class PERIOD, but it is also going to be AWESOME.)

And, now that I'm in the BFA program, I get Studio Space. Oh yes. I am really, really excited about this. No more trying to carefully arrange the easel and palette and towel and turpenoid all on my desk at once. I AM OFFICIAL NOW.

Not much more to add. Except that the phone chord is still lost. I don't really know where to look. And I'm wearing my nerd rock and it makes me happy. And one day I will be Brave and Wear It In Public and people will be like, "Oh.... I, uh, like your necklace." And I will be Amused.
