so, new orleans was really cool. it was a lot worse than i thought it would be. i think amy might have all the details.
so… i was stressed because i thought i had the wrong textbook for my corespondence course, i was two weeks behind in all my classes and three weeks behind in art, i had one day to finish a wedding video for an amazing girl, and my car was dead.
but in one day i found out my textbook was ok, and i finished the video…the art story is the funny one.
so i had been slacking off in art for three days- i hadn’t done a single thing- because my gpa is frozen and i don’t need the credit. i was not motivated in the least to start on my paper mache project that everyone else started 3 weeks before on. so finally my teacher tells me to get to work, so in my sarcastic way of doing things, i sat down with my group (all 3 weeks ahead of me) and decided to mock the project.
the project: our assignment is to build a paper mache animal that has 7 different parts and it has to be creative and original.
what i did: everyone else’s projects are really big and elaborate. they’ve spent the whole 3 weeks and they still weren’t finished. so i sit down and decide, as a joke, to make seven different life-size insects all out of little paper mache balls. so i made a lady bug, a worm, a caterpillar, a beetle, moth, rollie-pollie, and a millipede. it only took me about 5 minutes. so now all of my friends are anxious for me to show my teacher and to find out what she had to say about it.
the teacher: she’s probably the least smartest person you’ll ever meet. that’s no lie. she’s got the voice of a muppet with a new york accent and i guess finds it obligatory to wear leather pants every now-and-then.
so i called her to my table and i showed her my project (in it’s entirety, it fits in the palm of my hand) and i asked her “so, should i put these on like a leaf before i paint them?” and she kind of paused for a second- the “brain pains.” and said yes. now, she doesn’t say yes a lot, she’s very set in her ways and is not flexible at all, so, naturally this answer was quite a surprise. so much so that my whole table started laughing in utter disbelief, except for me with my staid countenance. so in five minutes, i caught up with the rest of my class.
on a sadder note:
abby- my twin- got married on saturday. i didn’t get to see her until an hour before the wedding. her mom told me that i wouldn’t believe how much she couldn’t wait to see me- so i didn’t try.
i’m not gonna lie, it was awkward at the first, but i sat down with her and we talked. i was really worried because i didn’t know anything about her fiance. she told me he was an amazing christian guy- whew. and i sat with her through her “panick-attack.” and then i had to go set up the cameras.
i realized that it was getting close to time, so i went to find her. i had to hunt a while, but i found her. i gave her a hug, whispered i loved her, and kissed her on the forehead. the wedding was amazing and i cried, and then we didn’t really talk after that. not that i didn’t want to…but naturally she was busy.
so i’ve been kind of depressed lately. but don’t worry, i won’t have to take medicine.
wow that was long.
