Another late night at work,. But I did get to come home and have a Skype date with my boyfriend.
I’m hoping to get to some self-portrait ideas this weekend, so exciting things are to come luckily.
Today was absolutely awful. Pretty much everything that could go wrong, in terms of getting things set for my senior show, went wrong. First, I had to pay $300 to get my photo printed. After dishing out more money than I currently have to my name, we realized that my print was too big to fit in my car or Elliot’s truck (yes, it is huge.) and so we had to figure out how to get the stupid thing to the gallery. Luckily Elliot’s boss was kind enough to let us use his car to transport it. Once getting it t the gallery we notice that it was very very bowed (it was printed on foam core board), which prevented me from being able to hang it how I originally planned (with it just resting on push pins). Then, 3 more attempts to hang it failed, after numerous trips to and from the gallery. So I am completely clueless as to how I can get this thing to hang from the wall and not look ridiculous, which was supposed to be done by 5:00pm since our show opens tomorrow. I am exhausted, stressed, frustrated, and annoyed, and I still have to deal with it in the morning.
Needless to say I did not want to take a picture. Elliot is working late tonight because they are way backed up, and I knew that if I stayed at home I would just sit in my bed and watch a movie, and not get work done. So he let me come in to work with him so that I actually would get stuff done.
I hope you all had a better Sunday than I did.
Today has been insanely busy, and I totally forgot/didn’t have time to take a picture until just now, at 1 am. I am currently writing a paper that is due tomorrow, and will be working on it for a while still, so this is all I could manage for a picture today. Lame, yes, but it is a real documentation of my life tonight.
Elliot (my boyfriend) is a computer science major and works for a place that deals with laptops (selling, trading, buying, repairing) at the moment. So he has access to a ton of computer parts that no longer work and would just get thrown out. He likes to teach me about computers, and brought me this hard drive to look at a bit ago, and I kept it to take pictures of (because I am just as much of a nerd as he is). Well tonight he wanted to see what happened when he took a lighter too it. The answer to that question is nothing. At least at the moment. He then put some pressure on it just as he was walking away and it busted. So in case any of you were curious, hard drives can take serious amounts of heat, at least until they get pressure put on them.
My computer is basically part of my body. I couldn’t even go a day without it I don’t think. I had it sitting on my kitchen counter as I made dinner, and the light was hitting it just right, and I knew it had to be my shot for the day. Plus with school starting tomorrow, it will be getting even more use (if that is possible).
