wednesday was a wild day. not only did patrick wolfe attend my class, but he then gave a lecture later that afternoon in the anthro department (‘Where Did the Vanishing Indian Vanish To? Hunting Grounds Happy and Not So Happy in US Indian Policy’) . i don’t think i’ve been that academically inspired in such a long time. i wanted to work on my thesis. i wanted to work on final papers. i wanted to apply for a PhD.
but then i realized, it’s a lot of work, and i don’t know if i’m up for that right now.
which was then followed by the most amazing night at 3rd ward. i ended up attending drink & draw, and don’t think i can remember a time being that relaxed, especially while drawing. i haven’t done figure drawing in so long, but it was so much fun. i’ll try to upload some of the sketches i did if i get a chance. for $10 (if you go with a friend), you get unlimited beer (colt45), and a model who does several 2 minute poses, several 5 or 8 minutes poses (i forget), and 3 20 minute poses. we were late and only got in 2 of the mid-length poses, plus the longer 20 minute ones, but it was absolutely worth it.
highly recommend it.
currently working on setting up an actual website. we’ll see how that goes.
i never meant to be a liar. unfortunately, grad school has turned me into one. i keep meaning to post more often, but days blur together and before i know it, a month goes by with nothing.
it’s very strange how close to the end of school it is, which of course, means how close to the end of grad-school it is. come may 12, when i submit my last final paper, all that stands between me and a M.A. degree in Museum Anthropology is my thesis. i’m talking to my advisor about that tomorrow, but she gave me the nod of approval to go ahead with it when i handed in my proposal a month ago. i just hope that the library in wrangell can handle my researching needs….i’m a researching machine.
speaking of alaska, i’m still waiting on confirmation from my potential co-pilot for traveling out there. he should let me know tomorrow. i hope it’s yes. fingers crossed.
i can’t wait until i have a job that i can work at during the day, but completely leave there when i go home for the night. it’s really difficult to find a way to balance school-work time with personal time, as i always feel stupid-guilty when i’m not reading an article or writing a paper, etc. i just want to be able to come home and draw or paint or something. anything.
hopefully soon. and hopefully more updates to my etsy soon. so frustrating…so many ideas, no time.
i leave you with my new favorite video….buffy sainte-marie singing with fred the horse (cripple creek).
