Bittersweet

June 25, 2010

Ahhh. Sorry I haven”t updated the past couple of days. Things have been a little busy, particularly because my sister just moved out of the house to Las Vegas. It’s a bit on the far side, considering my other sister lives in another part in Miami, so I’ve been feeling a little lonely. My dog is my only consistent company at the moment, but he’ll also be moving out to Vegas when I move to Rhode Island in the fall.

Anyway, in the past few days, I’ve primarily been indoors, albeit quite busy. Helping my sister pack and spending some family time were some obvious breaks that needed to happen. I didn’t get to draw, as planned, but it’s alright. I’m actually getting into sea animals after watching Life on Animal Planet on Sunday Night. Starfish primarily stood out to me, since I learned some new things about them. I’ve never actually wondered what their diet was, and found out that they eat meat! They fed on a seal pup carcus by pushing one of their two stomachs out of their bodies, and the nutrients from the food source were absorbed through it. That’s so crazy to me.

Some other animals that I learned about in addition to starfish were squids and aurelia jellyfish, so I plan on getting some sketches of those in tonight. I actually received a sketchbook as a going away present from my favorite teacher before school ended, so I want to dedicate it to do some research.


Yesterday, I had a job interview, and I’m feeling good about it! They want me back for a second interview on Tuesday, so hope for the best for me!

This is what I wore:


Red floral vintage dress, Chinese Laundry Wedges, Forever 21 purse

I’m completely in love with this dress. I went into Goodwill looking for a denim buttondown, and when I saw this, I had to have it.



I love the buttons on it so much! They’re beautiful.

This is it for now. I’m gonna try to get some drawing in tonight. Bye!
