Why, you ask? Well, I went to class this morning. And the first thing out of the professor's mouth besides "good morning" and an introduction was this: "Rule #1 in this class: Don't take this class during the Spring."
Yep. He was telling us that we would enjoy ourselves more if we allowed ourselves to wait and take the classes in the Fall. So that's what I did. If I didn't, I would be making 5 short films plus about 10 other smaller assignments in 6 weeks. YIKES! Plus, with this I have the rest of my Parent Plus Loan to supplement me while I look for a job, and now I don't have to buy the cheapest external hard drive I can find. I can work all day and make lots of money for next semester. So I don't think I made a bad decision.
I turned in applications to 5 different places today and two of the places have promise: Charlotte Russe and Rue 21. Yay clothing stores! I'll keep trying until I have a job, so that's what I'll be doing the rest of the week. I'm hoping for a job by the weekend or maybe early next week. Pray for me!

I was going to do another filmmaker, but I decided it's time to highlight my gorgeous sister, Emily. This is a picture of her and her newborn, Lucy, taken about two weeks ago (actually, it might be EXACTLY two weeks ago, to the minute). She has an amazing little family, doing what she loves, making things that make her happy, and living life to the fullest. I think she's beautiful, I always have, and I'm so proud of her. I wish I had an ounce of her creativity and could make the things she does: she made my laptop bag (I'll have to add pictures tomorrow of it) and she makes so many amazing things. She is one of my role-models, but I'll stop being so cheesy. Love you, Em!
