Cherish is doing some sort of experiment and has called upon Mr. Boots to bring her her test tubes and lab coat. I'm pretty sure her experiment involves embroidery thread, though. So, whatever experiment involves embroidery thread AND test tubes makes me a little nervous. I want no apart in this!

This task was unreasonably upsetting.
I am aware that I have control issues, my teacher even pointed it out today, so that's part of why I freaked out today but it's obviously more than that. I've been sincerely starting to burn out lately, especially in my drawing class. My teacher is seriously excellent and partially to blame. I mean, he teaches as though we are all artists, and he brings up excellent topics relating to our artistic growth which has made me get a little emotional lately.
I'm having a hard time figuring out what I want with my art and where I want to go with it, as in how I want to develop my personal style. I don't really know how I draw. I've been trying to figure it out but I've just been having a fucking hard time dealing with it.
At one point in class today I was getting so frustrated trying to figure out where to go with my drawing that when my piece of charcoal broke in half at the end of my stick I threw my stick on the ground and walked away.
This is me seriously overreacting and having a mini-breakdown.
Oof. This emotional crap is boring me. I'm hungry.

2. I'm a little embarrassed by how much I enjoy doing inventory at the shoe shop.
3. So, I haven't uploaded too much recently because I haven't taken too many photographs lately but any feedback over here on my flickr would be truly appreciated! I actually mean this!
4. I need to make a stencil of something, ANYTHING, for my drawing class tomorrow. For class last Thursday we were supposed to bring in:
-A stick the length of our right leg
-A few sheets of different colored paper
-A stencil of something
Most of the people in my class brought none of these things so we did another stick related activity but now tomorrow is our actual stick, etc drawing day. And I did in fact make a stencil for class last week but my teacher told me to make a new one that wasn't so half-assed and actually had something to do with my drawing aesthetic. So here I am, trying to think of how the fuck to do this. Last week the dude that sits next to me in class busted out his fucking nuts stencil and I'm supposed to compete with that? No, actually, it's drawing class so I'm not supposed to compete with that but I can't help but want to. Then his drawing was also fucking nuts. Ugh.
5. We're watching kare11 right now and they're doing this story about a guy who drives trucks to construction sites and has a duck as his friendly copilot. This is really bothering me. I'm sick of this fucking duck. WHY IS THIS STORY REAL AND ON THE NEWS?
Stupid ducks and stupid stencils.

So, my Whitman clan is celebrating christmas this weekend in SoDak. Mom, Chuck and I were supposed to leave at 8 am tomorrow morning. A slight wrench has been thrown into the works in the form of a FUCKING BLIZZARD that has closed I-90 from Mitchell into Wyoming.
My grandpa is an expert at weather and roads. His credentials: truck driver, avid weather channel watcher. My grandpa's theory is that given the direction the storm is heading in and the way the winds are blowing it should be clear enough for us to head out around 10 am tomorrow.
As Melanie said, my family will be having a white christmas this year.
