My first oil painting!

Last night I finished my first oil painting. I signed it...
I made it for a friend, I think he'll like it.
I love it! I'm really excited and now I just want to keep going. I'd be at the studio at this very moment, but I have to study for my WCIV exam tomorrow and for my ECON class.

That's it for now. I'll post a picture of it soon. It has to dry first.

Matters of the heart

"My point here is that, in matters of the heart, males have the brains of a walnut."

I just read a column by Dave Barry and I thought it was hilarious! That's where I took that line from. If you want to read the entire column just click here.
I wrote a couple of poems yesterday, and I found two of my poems inside one of my books... that happens often, I forget where I leave my things... but that shouldn't happen with poetry or art. I guess that's just me. And life... that's life!
I have to study. My Art History class got cancelled, so I have to study for my other classes.

I found my planner...

And it felt so good!!!

Last night I went to see "Hitch" and I liked it. It was fun!
Now I'm tired. I've been studying a lot 'cause I have test in 2 classes tomorrow. I still need to keep studying, but I thought I'd take a break.

I've lost my planner!!!
And my phone went gaga, got funky-fied, buh bye, ciao, went completely bananas... I'm getting a new one thanks to the warranty exchange thing.

Or as I heard this morning on the radio, "Happy Singles Awareness Day!"

I think I'm typing with my eyes closed

I'm working on a report that I have to turn in tomorrow, but I'm tired. I still have to read for class. I slept in this morning and I overslept on Saturday; I had to be somewhere at 9 am and I woke up at 10:28 am. Well... at least I got some sleep. And I went to the UA LSU basketball game. We won.

Random thought: why is it so hard to keep a secret?
I'm working on a painting for a friend. He doesn't know. Actually, I'm the only one that knows :) and I don't want to tell him because I might not finish it soon. I started it last night after I finished my assignment. Something inside me is tickling me to go and say "I'm painting something for you and you'll LOVE it". But what if he doesn't love it? or what if I like it so much that at the end I decide to keep it?
I'll do my best to keep quiet.

Anyway... after all this randomness, I have to get to work.
Keep dreaming, all you dreamers out there. I'll do the same :)

I'm so freakin' tired

our morning coffee
Originally uploaded by imtrendywendy.

I had a test this morning. Art History II. It was horrible. I'm exhausted. I studied a lot for that test, I stayed up till really late last night.
And as always... coffee saved me this morning.

I was trying to concentrate last night, but it was late. So I put some music to help me stay awake, and I ran into this really cool "rola" that kinda goes with me.
First time I heard it... and it was one of my CDs. The name is "modern dance". Here's a link so you'll know what the lyrics say. This is what I like the most:

Maybe I should go and live in Amsterdam
in a side street near a big canal
spend my evenings in the Van Gogh Museum
what a dream, Van Gogh Museum...

And maybe you and I could fall in love
regain the spirit that we once had
you'd let me hold you and touch the night
that shines so bright, so bright with fright

NOW, on a different note: Valentine's is sooo overrated.

For a good cause

Avon will give 10 cents toward breast cancer research every time someone "pulls on the rope" - please take a minute and do it!!!

Flowers for a gray day

These past few days have been a little gray. I like them.
My dad hasn't written to me in a while, I don't know what's up. I've been very busy with school and work, so I hadn't had much time for myself... except for last Saturday evening, when I went to the painting studio to work on my assignment for Tuesday. I was the only one in the studio so I put some nice music and it was soooo good.
I was working on something for school, but it was goooooood! I relaxed and ruin one of my fave shirts (got some paint on it). After that I decided to stop by Barnes & Noble and bought two books. One of them is "The Massacre at El Mozote" by Mark Danner.
Very interesting.
I love to go to Barnes & Noble... alone. I spend time looking at art books or travel books. I also enjoy looking at book covers and sometimes I read a little. I don't think anyone knows about my little B&N thing. :)

I love sunsets. I took this picture a while ago, I was standing outside Barnes & Noble and it was just beautiful.
