I am so so so excited about being a part of the art school. Based on the project that I'm working on right now, I feel like I'm going to be way more creative than I originally thought. The project is a composition piece. I was given four 8x10 sheets of white paper and four 4x4 sheets of black paper. I then designed anything I wanted pretty much just using an Xacto knife. I think they turned out really well! I still have to work on one but I think I can get it all done by Monday. Tomorrow I have drawing! I hope I'm not a failure at it! Also, I have stooopid discussion tomorrow for HISTORY which really cuts into my time to work on my pieces!!! I can see that regular classes and art classes are not going to be friends.

I hear...noises.

So I'm not as negative about college on the second night. I am more indifferent than anything else. I am just beyond excited for classes to start. I have probably said this statement more in two days than I ever have in my life but, "I am so friggin ready for classes to start." I feel as though thats when this place will stop feeling like camp. I just want to get my work so I can have SOMETHING to do! Also, I have a new strategy for this whole college experience thang. I am never planning on staying here for more than two weeks at a time. This will help me not go insane and also let me do laundry at home. Killing two birds with one stone can be bloody, but awesome. I am totally opposite from a people person its not even funny. I feel uncomfortable even now and there are walls separating me from everyone. Luckily, the shower situation worked out perfectly today. Lets hope that everyday offers me perfect bathroom conditions.

Sooner Born

Okay WELL...I'M AT COLLEGE! Thats me pretending to be excited.

I can't tell if I'm just really tired or if I honestly hate being here. Actually, I dont being HERE. I hate the people that are HERE with me. There are a vast number of people here that do nothing but go out at night and drink till they drop. I completely don't understand it. Especially when they flaunt it. I met these girls today...don't care to remember their names. They went on and on about how they were going to get so drunk that night that they didn't know if they would be able to keep themselves off the boys at the Frat house. Get out.

Honestly, if I didn't have Haley and Riggs and Melissa here, I would be gone. I can't even begin to imagine what it would be like to go through this alone. I would basically be dead. A walking ZOMBIE.

I can't wait for actual classes to start. It will be nice to have purpose. At least move in is over. That experience can NOT go into the memory box.

Thankfully, I finally met my suite mates. I was beginning to think we would go through the entire college experience not ever seeing each other existed. They were nice. Not jocky, thank god. But apparently, they are a popular duo on our floor cuz there are a lot of people in their dorm.

I really really really want to get excited about leaving for college. It wasn't this hard during the year. It wasn't this hard during lame high school classes or during all of my photo assignments. It wasn't this hard at Alphabest or even J. Crew. I didn't know that it would be so hard for me to say goodbye to my normal life and everyone in it. I'm just not that good at making new friends in these types of situations. The worst part in my mind right now is that first weekend. Ugh. Words cannot describe how much I wish I could skip orientation weekend. All of these little events designed to force people together. Its just not my favorite thing in the world. I never thought I would be this close to tears about leaving for college.

Troubled Waters

I feel like I really don't want to go to college. I'm nervous about every tiny detail. Someone please make me excited...

You never know what you got till its gone...

Took a look around my house. Found some beautiful stuff that I probably would have never found if I weren't looking.
