and after many promises, our group stop motion piece. so much time. blood. sweat. oreo cookies. tears. oh amanda knight hall, i will have so many fond and delusional memories of you. the complete margins exhibit is still on display in the harris fine arts center for the next two weeks (on the main floor) so if you're in the area and actually know what the HFAC is stop by and meander through some aesthetically pleasing posters. the whole project will be online at marginsproject.com in the next few weeks.


a little sale.

... and here's why. it's a story.

when i first got into the bfa i couldn't work full time anymore. (let's not discuss how painful it is to look at my entrance portfolio. it was thrown out the second day of classes that semester). i'd been taking around 10 credits a semester for two years so i could work, and with the bfa it was impossible to do that anymore. there is only one class of students a year so your schedule is decided for you. it's a packed schedule too. each class is three hours long, so you're usually in class all day and then up all night trying to get projects done.

well, i like saving money. i like dave ramsey. and between our bank account and dave ramsey swirling in my little head i knew we would have a problem earning a quarter of what i used to make. having to go from a pretty salary to working fifteen to twenty hours a week at a student job (which i love) just wasn't going to cut it for me. our mint account got sad just thinking about it. and in my childish heart, this scene just made too much of an impact.

our main goal was to graduate, but it was also important to graduate debt free and with savings so we could be ready for whatever happened next.

so i started selling posters. it took a few months for it to get going, but since then the sales have been pretty solid. and because of it we've managed to hit our goals. we paid for college selling pieces of paper. i love the internet.

so the sale is a big thank you! to everybody who helped and supported this quirky idea. we reallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreally appreciate it.


and then i ate a half-frozen chimichanga with a spoon.

i drank my first mountain dew.
my bfa show is up.
curiously, half of my big toe (the left one) is numb. it has been since mike and i spent two days putting my show up. it's rather odd. and mike doesn't believe me. but i have nerve damage people, i know it.
we finished our epic stop motion piece. and our display. it's also up.
i stayed up for a day, and a night, and a day, and a night, and a day getting my portfolio ready last week. head back to campus after dinner. work furiously until seven am with nbc playing the same office episode over and over again (oops, sorry patsy). and then run home to shower. on the third morning i got into the shower with my socks on. i'm not ashamed of it. (but it did take sixty seconds to realize that something didn't feel quite right...)
i had my last portfolio review.
i was sad (a little). i'm really going to miss the program.
i only have nine emails in my poster inbox. the last time this happened was never.
mike and i are (fake) graduating in two days.
we're really excited.
i need to get away from the blasted vending machine food. i'm afraid it will haunt me for the rest of my life.
