Busy as a beaver

and sick as a dog! What weird expressions! Why is it the dog that is always sick?... :) Actually, I'm not that sick, I'm getting better. I thought that I'd tell you why I won't be here the rest of the weekend. I am still alive. I think.

The reason I'm busy? Piranesi!!!!! You see, there was an artist in the 18th century named Giovanni Battista Piranesi. He got sick (maybe that's where I got the idea) and had really scary dreams on account of his high fever. What were in these dreams? Prisons. Or Carceri d'invenzione if you prefer. We have to take one of his etchings and expand it using our imagination. Eeek! Look to the left to see which one I am in the midst of doing. Well, after we sketch it out in graphite and making sure everything is in perfect proportion, we use pen and ink over it. And are NOT allowed to spill the ink. If we do, we somehow have to incorporate it into our design. One of the teachers said the inking should only take 10 hours. That's a laugh!!! A couple hours on a beam. By the way, inking is supposed to be done on Monday. Yeah, I hope I make it through this weekend...

Who needs a title?

Sorry I haven't been here lately again. And I'm sorry for the webdings font on the last post! In Mozilla, it looks perfectly fine, but not so much in IExplorer. :) Let's see what has been going on lately? Homewor homework homework. I have a five page research paper due tomorrow at 11. We have a Piranesi assignment where we have to add onto his etching using our imagination. We have two weeks to complete it and it will be in pen and ink. Today in design, we made valentine's cards. Yup, that's right, valentines. We had to make it 3D, but it was really fun. Speaking of which, Happy Valentine's Day everyone!! In case you didn't read it last year, click here to read about why we celebrate this holiday. Remember to thank your true valentine today. For His eternal love for us.

Should I stumble or soar?

So it's been more than a week since I posted, and since I don't want to become like some people and never post, I thought I'd let you know that I'm still alive. Well, I don't know how alive I am actually. I just got a bad grade in design. I was trying to convince myself that grades aren't that important. Not working too well. So after class, I came back to my room, turned on K-love and opened my Bible for some help. This is what I turned to (Isaiah 40:29-31):

"He gives strength to the weary, and increases the power to the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."

That is exactly what I needed! Funny how God does that, isn't it? So I guess the choice is up to me. Should I depend on myself or
put my hope in God? Should I stumble or should I soar?
