So, first off, my boy made a special trip to see me this weekend, which would have been enough of win for me. But, life had more win in store for me, it seems.
Tuesday and Thursday mornings, I walk to my 8 am class. This Thursday, as I walked by the Civic Center, I saw on the steps a giant yellow...something. Upon closer examination, it was a giant inflated lemon. On the side of the lemon, it said "Take me to the nearest McDonald's and get FREE Frozen Strawberry Lemonade for a year."
Needless to say, I was STOKED. And when we brought it into McDonald's, everyone applauded, made us frozen strawberry lemonades on the spot, and we stopped everyone working at the Mickey D's to take a group photo with the lemon.
Last weekend, I went home to see my little sis Megan complete her Confirmation in the Church, which was wonderful to see, as nice as any graduation. While I was gone, though, several events occurred at school. I went to the SAC meeting on Tuesday, to find out that I had been chosen at a SCAD Leadership Banquet as SAC Member of the Year, which was a really unexpected honor. Also, the Artemis came out, in which I have one more poem than last year, so, two poems. :) But again, an honor.
On Thursday night, Aaron and I went to the Return of the Munny Show at the Student Center. There were about 25 in the show, and they were all fabulous, it was hard to pick which ones (besides our own) we thought were the best. But, I'm happy to say that my Beauty and the Beast Munny's won runner up in the Color category. There were many fabulous Munny's there though, including Aaron's which involved a silver metallic Munny suspended in the air by twisted wires, named Cracked, which should have won for Design. So, because he deserves it, here it is featured below.
And, as if that wasn't enough, I found a place to live next year! It really is quite lovely, but when I went a bunch of boys were living there, so there was stuff EVERYWHERE. When I move in at the end of the quarter, I'll post some pics of my soon-to-be first apartment. :D
And, besides all that, I completed two more photo shoots for my collaboration with Abi Grise (one of which was Aaron, thanks again babe), and I had a lovely anniversary dinner at Macaroni Grill, which is one of the best restaurants in my opinion because what other place would not only let you draw on the table, but provide you with the crayons to do so?
Of course, now I have to get back to school and homework and all that non-win nonsense, but basking in the afterglow of my weekend of win, the next few weeks don't scare me. :)
This Thursday evening, 6 PM at Arnold Hall, there will be a reading celebrating the release of this year's Artemis. For those who don't know, Artemis is SCAD's student literary magazine, which has poetry, fiction, non fiction and playwriting. Those who get in get the chance to read a selection of their accepted work, and I will be reading a few poems that got in. I hope you all get a chance to come and listen to some really good work from your fellow SCADdies. Thursday, 6 PM, Arnold Hall.
