Know what drives me crazy more than anything else in this world? People (COLLEGE STUDENTS) who still don't know how to use the different forms of "their, there, they're" and "then, than" and "to, two, too," among others. IT'S NOT THAT HARD!! I truthfully have no idea how people can make it to college and still not be able to use them correctly. Absolutely, one-hundred percent drives me insane.

If you happen to be one of these people who doesn't know basic English (and yes, I mean should have learned this stuff in elementary school,) take a look at this: LEARN SOMETHING!!

Whew...Sorry about that little rant. More will probably end up here, as long as people are still being dumb. Stay tuned!

On a positive note, how about some photos?

117/365: Another sunrise shot. This morning before I left for class I shot a whole bunch of these. This may not be the BEST one, but it is my favorite. I actually love the sort of faded, softness that the bright sun created.
This afternoon, in an attempt to work up some creativity for sketching, I looked through my newsprint pad which is full of quick gesture sketches from last semester's figure drawing class. I decided I liked a few of them so I took some photos and here they are!

"Wrap the figure"

A bit out of proportion, but I still like it.

I like the comments from my prof. Considered photoshopping them out, but that changes my feelings for it. Ha!

I think this one is my favorite. So simple.
I enjoyed that class a lot. Didn't think I would, but I was in the class with some really great kids, one of them being a best friend of mine. Also helped that it was taught by one of my favorite professors here. (However, I have a few of those. Ha!)

Today I decided that one of the only reasons I want the snow to melt away is so that I can get my shortcut across the grass back. Right now it's under 3 feet of snow. Makes my walks to school quite a bit longer than they need to be, since my lack of boots makes it impassable. (I do still love the snow, though!)

I think we're going to be lazy tonight and order pizza. We're allowed a few of those, right?

Check out yesterday's post to make a guess at the "Too Close" Tuesday shot!


  1. Love the pictures! Always stunning.

    And yes, I agree with the English mistakes. Seriously, people. lol

  2. I can't get over your last simple sketch. It's...captivating. I love it. So elegant. So simple. Perfect. :)
