my mind is a firestorm

Your Brain's Pattern

Your mind is a firestorm - full of intensity and drama.
Your thoughts may seem scattered to you most of the time...
But they often seem strong and passionate to those around you.
You are a natural influencer. The thoughts you share are very powerful and persuading.

I firestormed the shit out of that critical theory final. Now I will have a smoke and a pancake. Then i will sleep for 12 hours.


have you ever...

have you ever been sitting in a packed theatre, and had the sudden urge to take a shit. like immediately?


well then, what about subsequently getting your period at the mid point of a play that has no intermission?

no again?

yeah well it's SO not as fun as it sounds.

my husband is an rc geek. sort of.

this is his new favourite toy: the WowWee Flytech Dragonfly

this is what they sound like:

i rode my bike today and it was windy, a bitter, bitter wind. my advice to anyone contemplating riding into the wind from west parkdale to cabbagetown on a bike with no gears, post-therapeutic massage and starving cause it was 2 o'clock and you hadn't eaten yet. don't bother.

i had to pull over a couple of times cause my hamstrings and calves felt all explody. i was hoping to make it home to have some tomato soup with grated cheddar cheese and toast but by the time i got to college and grace i felt like i was going to pass out. so i stopped at bar burrito and ate a 8" chipotle steak burrito, then rode home. the burrito was pretty good but i kinda wished i had gone to utopia across the street. oh well.

in other news, i have 2 projects to go before my critical theory final on the 25th. i'm currently working on:
  • a new painting for colour and composition class
  • a 3D model, something architectural, for art and design in the social sphere class.
i'm also working on getting shots of all my drawing and printmaking work so that i can post more for your viewing pleasure.
