People should warn you, growing up, that it sucks to sit around and think. It's overwhelming, time consuming, and exhausting. Instead, just do. Easy, right? Meh. Lately I've been "alone with my thoughts" and when I say "alone" I mean totally surrounded by people who have been in my art and design classes for the past 4.5 years. (Wow, it's been 4.5 years since I've been out of high school?? Like I said, don't think about it.) I have just over one week till my show goes up, and then, ridiculously, comes down 4 hours later. Alllllll this sleeplessness, stress, anxiety, for 4 hours of appreciation (at least I hope it's appreciated). So while I have a shit ton to do, I instead sit here thinking about it all, and now, write it all down. Good idea right?! (Oh, no biggie, I just won't sleep tonight; that's been my solution all semester.)
In my pit of 'thoughts' I decided, "SHIT, I need some way to display my tins! A display on top of my display, that is, to display more things!" So, my attempt at playing architect/wood worker failed when I thought about all the things I personally could hand build (all 2 things). Instead, I have my wonderful father, who's woodworking I will always brag about (no pressure, Dad), to make me a tin display AND a box for my monitor! Might not be quite as fun as building a solar system, but I'm not 8 any more (although my woodworking skills are probably at the same level).
1 week, 2 days, 17 hours, and 57 minutes until senior show. http://www.con10ders.com/
