I’m going to start reading more. It’s a productive thing to do during the day. And something I enjoy. That way I won’t be so bored, as I am finding it hard to not be bored without leaving the house. My goal to hopefully accomplish is to read one book a week. It’ll be good for me. I have 3-4 days to finish Interview With the Vampire, which I still haven’t fully...
I’m tired of saying I’m going to do things and I never do them. It’s usually small things. But still…its starting to annoy me. I’m starting to annoy myself. Gah!

I don’t like being associated with it. I don’t “party”. I like getting together with few people, and sometimes adding a little drinking in the mix. But not a whole lot. Ultimately, I feel that I don’t need to party in order to have a good time…or consume lots of alcohol…or do drugs for that matter. It kind of offends me when neighbors think I participate...

Re-reading Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, hoping that Tim Burton’s remake will be more like the book than the Disney film. But his movie IS a Disney movie…so I’m pretty sure it’s not going to happen. I want to see the Duchess, the Mock Turtle, or maybe even Humpty Dumpty. ANYTHING out of the book. Not saying the Disney movie is not...

Wife of Colin Meloy from the Decemberists. Graphic Artist and Illustrator for the band as well. Her work is unique and looks like it comes from a story book. Love it.
So far, this summer has been a blast. Got a [not so] new car in which I learned to drive a stick. It’s funny how no one thought I could do it. But alas, I did! Spent a majority of the time with my boyfriend. Gone on numerous motorcycle rides with him. Took a trip to the river where I went jet-skiing for the first time, by myself, and didn’t fling myself off. Yeah its been fun....

For the past month or so, I’ve been playing around with my logo or “identity” for my freelance design work. Took a long time to figure it out. Tried using my initials. Didn’t work. So I picked out some animal that I really like: a penguin! I got my design [almost] finished, when I came across something on the web. It looks way similar to mine. So now I can’t use it. I...
One of my many goals to accomplish this summer before fall quarter: 1) Actually draw for 15 minutes a day. AND 2) Work on drawing people. I have been slacking. So I decided to take a good half hour of my day to do some drawing. I like simple outlines and/or Contour Line drawings with Ultra Fine Point sharpies the best. Graphite is my second choice. Here are a couple pictures of what I...
