I’m not feeing super great right now but I had an awesome day.
I woke up at 930 and listened to the new nightvale. I stretched and showered and had a big breakfast with the last of my breakfast potatoes. I got to work on some art. I spray painted the mini’s I made yesterday and made 15 new cat pieces. I’m going to do a few as grey cat and a few as oliver and then just other cats. Just short hair right now but maybe the next batch I’ll be long haired one. Not sure how but I will make it happen.
I also got to work on 2 new mouse soup pieces and they could have gone better. I was actually pretty bummed about it. I did one with the tiny bird skull and that one looks really cool but the heat from the resin did something to the roses I used and all the color is gone? I don’t know what happened. I went out after I worked on that to pick up some resin and flowers and deliver a letter for mom. But then I remembered the post office is closed today for labor day so I scarped that and just went to the stores.
I got the big bottles of resin again for 50% off and had a good conversation with the cashier lady. Then I went to acme to pick up flowers for Becca’s birthday. That’s the other big thing I did today. It was Becca’s surprise party and I wanted to make sure I made her something really nice. I also needed a few yellow flowers for the other mouse soup piece I was making today so win win.
I got home and rested and worked on the other mouse soup but while that one looked beautiful to start with it failed spectacularly. It is just filled with bubbles so bad you can barely see anything and by the time I realized it it was to hard to be salvaged. I’m bummed to because it had looked so beautiful to start with. Maybe I will make another attempt when I have another skull to work with.
I actually spent the majority of the afternoon applying for schools. I did about half of each application up until I had to actually write thoughts and essays and I want to save those for when I can really focus. But I cant believe I actually started applying for school. Its almost to wild to handle.
I packed Becca’s gift of flowers, one of my mini foxs, and some fancy lotion, before heading out. I had a lot of anxiety so I went to chipotle for dinner but that didn’t help much. I was in line for like a half hour. And I felt really stupid but I was hungry and so I waited. Then I got it to go so I wouldn’t miss my train but I ended up 20 minutes early anyway. So I went home to get different shoes because it was way to hot for the ones I was wearing. And then when I got home my parents were naked in the living room! I didn’t see anything thank god but dude shared space. I sit on those couches!
I got back to the train station and realized I had lost part of my headphone and I didn’t have my tablet and my heart was going crazy because of anxiety. I tried my best to just breathe it away.
I got downtown around 6 and walked through china town. I gave some money to a homeless couple with a cat on a leash. I texted Sal, the contact for the surprise party, if I could come early and they said for sure and I went and Kelly was there and while I was still anxious I put on my gallery/work persona and things were good!
I talked to all the people mostly and smiled a lot and at 715 when Becca came we surprised her so bad she cried for a half hour. It was awesome. No one ever did anything for her birthday and I’m glad I got to be part of the group that finally did. And she seemed to really like my gift.
I spent most of the night with Kelly and periodically hugging Becca and giving highfives to Sal. I had a really good night and felt fine when I walked to the train with Kelly.
I met a weird cute guy on the train who gave me a high five after I helped him figure out what train and platform he needed to be on. And then I got on my train. But I started having chest pains about half way home. I got back and talked to mom and took a shower and I think I’m going to just eat some food and go to sleep.
It was a long day and I’m really happy but also really tired.
Sleep well everyone and I hope you have a wonderful night.
