Hello! It's been awhile, I was on vacation last week with Kevin's family in Deep Creek, Maryland! It was nice, the weather could have been nicer, but I ate really well, went kayaking, and saw a bear! So overall it was really fun!
You know how when you get back from vacation you feel like you need another vacation...from your vacation? Its a transition for me to get back into the swing of things of my everyday life. Change is a hard adjustment for me, and that's just about vacation!
Tennessee is getting closer and closer and I'm getting very excited. I am done with State College, I am tired of the college town, college people and my roommate! She takes our glasses, bowls, and mugs down to her dirty basement and I have to awkwardly text her saying HELLO UH CAN I HAVE THOSE BACK!
I will never understand oblivious people, when I take or borrow something, I bring it back after a reasonable amount of time. I also don't understand messy people, how do you live in filth?
I have had to put her laundry in her room because it's always in the dryer, that's another thing she is always freaking doing laundry! And I am not exaggerating, I always hear the washer and dryer going?! I mean WHAT? WHY?
But anyway, I've seen her room when I put laundry in there and it's scary and musty.
The closet will flood when it downpours which it has done a few times, I told her this upfront, we gave her sand bags, and I suggested to not put any clothes in there. Well she has clothes in there (maybe that's why she always washing them!) and her mattress is very close to the closet, and it has had to have gotten wet.
AND now my lovely neighbor is going thru a break up I am assuming because he is now blasting loud sad country music, rascal flats, what hurts the most, to be exact. The other day he was outside having a very loud conversation with his ex. He was yelling, "Are you effing serious?! Oh my gawddd, I didn't do anyyything!!" And I'm all
cause helloooooo I'm a creep.
But anyway. I have only been sketching, not making any stamps lately. I want to reprint a few stamps just to look at them again and see if I can make new patterns. I drew a fox I really like and a bear.
I also created a new instagram, solely dedicated to my work! I'm using the pretty photos so everything looks sharp and there are not cats, unless I drew it.
But other than that, I'm just packing everything up, realizing I have too much stuff and trying to keep my anxiety level down for the next month, at this moment it is very high, I try to just breath slowly and count to three so I don't slap my neighbor.
It is also Arts Fest in State College this weekend, so all the stupid people are coming back. For some reason it has become a drinking holiday for the college kids, I mean any reason, right? I have a love/hate thing with Arts Fest. I see some great work, especially in the printmaking field. But other the other hand I see awful art, like it should be in the bargain bin at pier 1, but at the same time I think, "If they can sell this stuff, I can sell my stuff?!" I am starting to realize that the general public like commercial stuff and that's why it's popular and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that!
But I mean there was a tent last year where this woman made vintage like photos but instead of human heads it was dog and cat heads...and you have to be invited to this festival! I wanted to burn her photos. I'm being really sassy today, *breath 1 2 3*
Okay! That's it! I'll stop before I say something else rude! Thanks for reading, here are some photos from the trip!
