Change is in the air, after much delay. And there will be more; the rest of this school year will probably be sucky half the time. But I've been seeing my therapist, and those are probably the best, if that's the proper word, conversations I've had in...a while. Also my art teacher is fantastic and such a lovely lady, so we're good there.
School sucks. Not much more to it than that. German, Math, and my art classes are all fine, but Biology's a bit of a bother, and Honors Literature is stressful. I love our conversations in class, and the books we read, and the independent writing we do, but there is so much bleedin' work! Some of it I'll probably blow off at this point, but I have actual group work, and an essay on rape that I do not feel at all up to researching. Reading Lucky was hard enough.
That class is my main sinkhole, but if I can do the reasearch, write the paper, write the bibliography (annotated, of course), and write/preform a half-decent presentation, I'll be somewhat in the clear. Then I can have actual writi8ng assignments! With real revisions! *keels over from joy*
As for next year...I'm beginning to consider going for my GED. I have to be 16, so not until September, but high school is not being particularly conducive to my well-being and, to some extent, actual education. It only just came up today, so we are definitely gonna have to think this over. On a a related educational note, Pacific Northwest Art College is looking pretty cool. Also, scholarships! Shiny.
In the meantime, I'm going to try and keep drawing, and maybe start working on some sort of portfolio. I still want to look for a decent job this summer, and I might open up some sort of commissions dealie. Of course, that means actually using the scanner...unless you guys like cruddy cellphone pictures! Yeah just lemme sweep the dust off that thing.
Yesterday was horrible, today was still pretty dreadful, and I will most likely accomplish minimum work at best tonight. But I am at least a little more hopeful for life beyond concrete walls. Tumblr is my medication.
-Would you lot be interested in commissions, for artwork and/or writing?
-Do you wanna be like mail buddies or somethin'? I could make pretty envelopes~...
-Do you like bananas?
-What's the weather like where you are?
-How bored do you think I am?
-What do you think I should be working on instead of asking you these questions?
