Through the worst of it (?)

Wed 12/6/2006

For four of my NINE classes, all my work is done and all that remains is to show up and defend my work on the final class. I still have a bunch of massive projects to finish up, but I am feeling pretty good right now, like I WILL be able to get everything done (pfew!)

I only had one class today and it was in the afternoon, AND it was just going to be a work period, so the pressure was really OFF last night! When I got home from class yesterday I took a "nap" for like FOUR HOURS. I was worried that it would mean I'd be up all night, but to my surprise I was fast asleep again by midnight and slept until NOON (something I have not been able to do since I was a teenager). Granted, my bedroom does not receive any natural light, so it is easy to "conk out" (as I call it) but still! I guess there have been plenty of long nights this semester, so I'm trying not to give myself too hard a time about it. I guess I'm just catching up on sleep...

Anyways, I'm getting close! As each course finishes I can almost feel a huge pressure lift off my shoulders. It's going to be great to have this semester behind me, it sounds like the next one will be the best semester yet!

Haha, great!
It feels really good, as you said, to have this kind of things behind one (always that they are not preparing a sneak attack =P)

Good luck!

When defending your work, remember that many common art school tools can be turned into deadly weapons. A few suggestions:

-Pencils and pens can of course be stabbing or throwing weapons

-the central pole of a metal easel can be used a a powerful striking weapon to fend off multiple attackers

-charcoal can be easialy crushed and thrown into your opponent's eyes to momentarily disable them

We're all pulling for you Alec, have a great finish to your Semester!

HA HA HA--Thanks Matt! I'll keep those tips in mind. I might need to use some of them!
