Footloose and Fancy-free Friday 1/8

Curse school.  I am so not going to have any time to write.  Whatever.

As for school, I do think I'll enjoy this degree program.  It's a major paradigm shift for me, mentally.

Wednesday, my instructors kept asking in the classes how many of us there were actually art majors.  My first inclination is still to keep the hand down.  I'm not an art major.  Who am I to think I'm an art major?

Then, I remember that I am, in fact, an art major.  So. weird.

Anyways, this is definitely going to be a different beast than my first two degrees were.  (I only have one paper to write this whole semester.  And it's only 4 pages long.  Again. so. weird.)  Lots of projects to do.  And I mean lots.  There are habits I have to start developing that will definitely take some time to get established.

When not doing homework, if that ever happens, and not at work I will write.  Most likely that will happen on Sundays.  Oracles Promise will be finished who knows when.  But I do hope to finish it this year.  2010 may not be the year I query on a project, but I will finish this book.  And hopefully pick up on Lodestar again.

That is your post today.  I must go buy my laundry list of art supplies and try to wrap my brain around this whole process.


  1. so glad you've found something that inspries you and seems so fun. wonderful!

  2. Good luck!!

    And yay to minimum of research papers to write, even if you have a slew of projects.

    Maybe you should pick up some fingerpaints while you're out, they totally help de-stress.

  3. Art - amazing! Can't wait to see something you've done. Good luck! I know you can do it.

  4. An art program sounds amazing! I almost did something similar, but realized I didn't like being told when and what to create. :) I'm stubborn like that.

    Have fun!

  5. Good luck with everything. Maybe when you get more into the swing of things, you will have more time to write than you think.

  6. Thanks everyone! Can't wait to start digging into the classes. I got almost all of my supplies today. Thank heavens for a student discount. That's all I have to say. And I got my artist's table. We got a really good deal on it. Alas, now, I have nowhere to put all my wonderful books and such things. My bookshelf got replaced by the table. Oh well.

    Soon as I have something worth sharing I promise I'll post it!

  7. Good luck, Stephanie! I know you'll finish this year, I know it!

    Ha! I'm echoing my own desires here! LOL I thinking when I finally write "the end", I'm throwing a party. Sheesh! Why not?! Certainly feels like something to celebrate, huh?

    Have fun with all your classes. The beginning of a semester is so exciting!

  8. minimum of research papers to write, even if you have a slew of projects.
