Friday!

No, I promise, I'm not going to sing that horrible song.  It's more like...running through fields of daisies with "Chariots of Fire" playing mysteriously in the background.  That's the kind of giddy feeling this particular Friday gives me.  Why? Because I have one test left to take this week and then I'm free until Monday!  I have a little bridle to do and then hopefully I'll be able to get most, if not all, of my Show for the Cure donation done. 

Last semester I balanced 3 classes (9 credit hours) and a 20hr/week part time job in addition to responsibilities at church.  I eventually fell into a comfortable routine, but there wasn't much time for creative endeavors and I finished the semester mentally drained.  My unique financial situation forced me to take just two classes this semester, and I was really frustrated at first.  Maybe I need this break, though.  I was bordering on burnt out last semester and it took half of my break to get myself back on track. 

While taking just 6 credit hours puts me behind my goal, I have time to breathe.  I really goofed around this week, and I still have nearly all of my homework done plus have had time to draw and read a little bit.  This could be a really productive semester!

I don't have tack pictures (yet!), so here's a quick look at what I've been sketching.  People are NOT my strong point, so I'm really trying to focus on getting them right.
