Beware the toxic fumes of turpentine!

Paging through the sketchbook I'm using now, I realize that since I've been using it off and on since 2005, it's become a little time capsule of evolving artistic skills. Thus, I bring you, withe the help of a couple other scans,

I have ceased to care.

Pity, considering I *like* Art History.  But, no, my brain refuses to work.  I'll read through my notes and then go to bed and try to do better in the morning.  (hah.)

I wanted to use a Stars lyric as my Facebook status, but the only one I could think of was Kate is "looking good in the shoes of an outcast"  and I was hoping to be more subtly emo.

I feel like the phrase "...wow, and it's not even 3 yet!" is highly indicative of a flawed sleep schedule.

The melancholy of the possibility that my friend-base will be a third smaller next quarter is incredibly disheartening.

It's back again, that desire to go to Art School.

I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that I'm trudging through Adam Smith right now.  Or if it has more to do with the beautiful art in the comics I've been reading lately, added to the fact that I'm not taking an art class this quarter, and haven't been doing any art outside of class...

The practical reasons why I shouldn't even try to care are numerous.  I'm not a terribly good artist, I have an awful work ethic and I work slowly, I probably wouldn't fit in, I probably wouldn't get in, I'd probably end up artistically crushed more than anything else, and, oh, right, my parents wouldn't pay for it in the least.

And then they'd probably disown me.  (Though I've been getting used to that feeling.)

And none of this mitigates the fact that, sitting here, I wish I was drawing instead.

Dear Friends from both Chicago and Houston,

Things you learn when Sadie gets things stuck in your head:

1. Thomas Sangster, the little kid Sam in Love Actually, was born in 1990.  He is SEVENTEEN.

2. Rodrigo Santoro, Very Attractive (Brazillian, apparently) Office Drone in Love Actually, also played Emperor Xerxes in 300.

It is five in the morning.

I have just noticed that what I am writing and what the prompt is asking me to write do not quite match up.

He friended me back.

shit.  now what?

possible message:  "Hey, I wanted to apologize if I seemed aloof last night at dinner- I wasn't trying to be, I was just caught off-guard."

well, thats kinda dry and stupid and really short.  but it beats out the other contenders, which are:

"look! i finally figured out your name!"
"okay, so *how* and especially *why* did you find me again, after that party months ago!?"

Maybe I should wait a bit....I mean, he only friended me an hour ago....
and at the same time....
