Perfunctory

I ran into this lovely lady (whose treehouse we snuck into last Thursday. Shhh, don't tell her.) on campus today. I was so attentively tuned in to a conversation I was following across Brigham Square involving a secret crush, a bad hair cut, and roommate feuds, that I didn't even notice as I passed within feet of her presence. Luckily, she startled me out of my eavesdropping trance and I had a few minutes to catch up with her. Sometimes I wonder how my heart can love so many so much. I'm glad so far there's no capacity quota. It just feels like it keeps getting bigger and deeper.

We got to talking and she said to me, "I read your blog and I don't even know what's going on in your life!"

So I decided to throw a little perfunctory post about my day-to-day happenings.

Item A: I am living with OlderAndWiserToo in Typewriter Grandma's basement apartment. I don't mean to brag, but our place is probably the cutest apartment within 5 miles of Cougar Campus. Tell me, who else has a purple pantry door?

Item B: I am taking the following courses this semester, Lithography, Watercolor, Intaglio, Painting, Old Testament, C.S. Lewis Literature, Model United Nations Prep, and Studio Seminar. Honestly, I love my classes. I just wish (as always) that I had 8 more hours everyday. Okay, maybe 10.

Item C: I apply for the BFA Program in April so I'm working on building my portfolio and it thrills me to jot down ideas for series and watch them grow and materialize. I think I'm really going to enjoy this art business...

Item D: I work in the Theatre and Media Arts Office doing odds and ends, building and designing websites, designing posters, flyers, banners, displays, you name it. On my pay check, my position is listed as "Creative Specialist No. 1" I sort of like that title.

Item E: I have a habit of staying up too late, but somehow manage to subsist off of an average of 5-6 hours of shut-eye a night. Last night, I got 4. That was a bad one.

Item F: I'm working on a grant proposal (and yes, I'm actually working on it and did a majority of it last night, hence the 4 hours of sleep) for a video project a professor and I want to carry out. Remember this? We're going to turn it into a masterpeice.

Item G: I feel a little better now that you all know a bit of what is going on with me. Email for details. Much love.

I have to ask, what is Model U.N. Prep? I did M.U.N. with Cathy, and then last year again. Do you and your classmates get to run the BYU conference?
