waiting game

now i sit and WAIT AND WAIT AND WAIT for two months until i hear back as to whether i get an interview and eventually a fellowship thank god spring break will take my mind off of the waiting and my future being up in the air. gah!

yesterday i painted my nails this really obnoxious orange/coral and it makes everything i touch look fake which is kinda gross slash cool i will live with it everyone needs something highlighter colored when it is this shitty outside it has been sludgy for days now

today on the train two girls turned around and looked at me as i was reading and one of them said "like that!" and pointed to me i continued to read not looking up and she continued by saying "when i get my next weave i want it to look like that" bahahahahahah my hair looked exactly like this^

my father's family is cut from the proudest of cloth
which is so annoying and NO ones talks to each other and everyone is secretly embarrassed about the fact that they cant talk about real things and real shit is going on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i shouldnt have to be the one communicating with all of my cousins its NOT my job

Back to the Future

i love everything about this project! its called "back to the future" by a photographer named irina werning and it recreates old family photos. it reminds me a bit of the project i did at oxbow and makes me want to start using my camera again SO bad maybe when i go home for spring break i will retrieve it however bringing it back to frozen tundra is prolly an awful idea another reason snow blows my list is getting bigger

never have to go to school ever again you say?!

last night i played in the snow until 2 in the morning and today i slept, watched a movie, snow shoed to the grocery store, made biscotti and read. being stuck inside is like a forced vacation and I am kinda in love
working on playing catch up with school will start tomorrow

also my parents come into town tomorrow to see the show i designed and haven't seen myself since saturday and have no time to change anything i see that goes wrong but whatevs i am not stressing and my parents will still love it even if it looks crazy so we're good!

this week marks week one of carmen's 1.5 quarter's of being a normal college student with only classes and work to worry about and it is looking pretty sweet!!!

snowmygod its a blizzaster

i am not good at snow days :
depaul has cancelled all school classes and events starting today tuesday at 1pm and wed.

however i am good at blaming the snow for not letting me get shit done like not being able to pick up things for my show or not letting be able to get to joanns to pick up things to make those earrings i have been wanting to make or not letting me grocery shop. however i do have yardage of fabric to block print and costume renderings and groundplan drafting to do so this is probably a blessing in disguise but as of now it just feels like cabin fever.
it also kinda eerily feels like karma and mother nature are giving me back the weekend that tech weekend for my show took away:)
