Well hello there.
I suppose that I have meant to do this for quite a while and now I finally am. Fantastic. I have been feeling a somewhat creative drought lately. Indeed, I can't remember the last time I did something that made me feel joyful about living. I am a college student who is mostly interested in political science and Japanese and maybe eventually being a lawyer.
But I did at least two creative things yesterday, and one today, so I feel rather successful. Not only did I go for a walk on which I took pictures of delightful things that I had wanted to for a long time, but I picked flowers along the way and managed to make a passable bouquet in an empty glass Coke bottle. Today while my somewhat horrid pregnant and very picky GSI went over my midterm (which I got a 91/100 on! Hurrah for me!) I managed to draw a very satisfying depiction of Alice's ventures into the garden.
I really never understood the fascination of everyone who reads Alice with the Caterpillar scene, when the fantastic garden is what gets Alice into actual adventures. I did it in pencil, unlike most of whatever sketching I do, in order to prevent the bothersome and unavoidable occurrence of errors. It came out quite well, if I do say so myself, although it got smudged in my bag and I had to re-sketch parts of it. I am thinking about water-coloring it, so perhaps that will be tomorrow's endeavor, although I do still have a letter to write and a book to finish.
Anyway, it is far too late to think of anything but sleep now.
