The quarter is winding down while my classes are gearing up for finals. Taking 18 units of art courses seemed like a good idea at first. Right. I've never felt days go by so quickly, and weeks drag on so long. But nevertheless, I'm making things happen, especially on weekends.

Just last weekend was P(REVO). Being a part of P(REVO), the "preliminary REVO", has been a great experience thus far, being able to use my design stills for a good cause. Though I was not able to go, I heard it was quite the success and was proud to be the designer responsible for the buttons participants were wearing for the event.

The day after, I hit the ground running. After waking up, showering, and brushing my teeth, I worked on my Fine Arts thesis project. These paintings are getting the best of me. Painting wooden boards that are 4x8 feet is physically intense with only a small paintbrush as your tool. Then immediately after that, I ran back to my room, showered, brushed teeth, and shaved in preparation for the SA banquet. Only one problem: I had left my one and only suit at home over break.

After knocking on every door on my hall to borrow a suit, I realized that despite my average build, Grainger Hall is no average dorm. Then it hit me—I needed to check my car! And there it was… a caramel, cappuccino brown striped suit. Gaudy, you think? Yes. Appropriate for a black tie event? No. Something I'd wear to banquet? You bet I did.

After getting back from banquet that night, I took off the suit, slapped on the PJ's and knocked out on top of my sheets only to wake up seven hours later. On a Monday.

Fast-forward to today, and this week has turned out all right. After putting myself together after being thoroughly berated by midterms, I'm on a roll. Still, Spring Break can never come soon enough.
