tues. wed. thurs.

So Strappy just reminded me that I haven't posted in a few days! Thanks Strappy (:

So Tuesday, I had workouts at seven in the morning (I know - SO EARLY) but I pushed through for the hour then headed back to my apartment for a short power nap before waking up and preparing for the long day!

After waking up, I started putting the finishing touches on my art projects that were due that day in my Color and Composition class. I showered and got ready for the day and was on my way to class!

In Color and Composition, we posted all four of our pieces on the wall. I, not purpose, put mine at the end of the the wall, on the far right. As we went down the line, I got really nervous about my critique because everyone else's pieces were so detailed, intricate, and formed abstract space. However, when it was finally my turn, everyone had really positive comments about how the simplicity was refreshing and simple. One of my class mates said that my collection was her favorite! It was definitely a weight off my shoulders after my teacher gave great comments about the direction, motion, balance, and space of each of the drawings!

Draft 2 (of 4) of my horizontal line drawing!

After Color and Compositions, I headed to 3D design where I got a ton of work done on my "The Little Mermaid" inspired project. Working with foam core has been pretty challenging but I've enjoyed using the power tools and seeing everyone else's work during the meetings at the end of every class period.

Some of my 3D designs with the traitorous foam core!

Tuesday night, I met up with my friend Reece at a restaurant downtown Athens called Thai Spoon. This was my first experience with Thai food and I was very impressed! I loved the peanut flavor in my pad thai dish. I ate it all! After dinner, Reece and I took a short trip to Agora (thrift store located in downtown Athens) then said our goodbyes and I headed off to my next adventure!

The next adventure? Karaoke night at Shokitini with the members of 10 North (aka. ION) of Russell Hall last year! So Jessie, Sarah, Emily, Kaley, Stacey, Chelsea, Jordan, Ansley, and I enjoyed a night of singing and dancing to 'Nsync, Celine Dion, Britney Spears, and Michael Jackson! So much fun being reunited with new and old friends. Pictures from that should be on facebook soon!

Wednesday, classes went by pretty quickly (including quizzes in History and Weather & Climate). After class, I headed back to my apartment for a short nap. I set my alarm for 5 o'clock. I woke up the natural way, FRANTICLY, at 6:45! I had to be in the coliseum and ready to go at seven! I was so frazzled. But I made it to practice on time and practice actually went really well! Good job, Jacqueline!

Thursday (today), I woke up at 6:20 and headed to the annex for another hour of weight pumping action! After that (miserable) hour, I headed back to the apartment for a power nap (similar fashion to Tuesday) before getting ready for the day.

In Color and Composition, we started project number two. This project will include four pieces that show the same building (in an abstract way) using different color schemes. I worked pretty hard on some different designs and got good feedback from my teacher.

In 3D design, I (and the rest of my class) continued working with the foam core. Nothing too exciting.

After class, I headed back to the apartment, made some pasta, ate the pasta, and changed clothes to go tumble at Force! Tumbling went pretty well (lots of sweat). After tumbling, I was back at the apartment to get ready for Project Runway night with Emily and Catherine!

Project Runway was pretty intense. Catherine, Emily, and I joined a few (more like 15) others at a girl named Amelia's (LOVE that name) house. It was great meeting some new friends.

Currently, I'm back at the apartment and I am watching "Watch What Happens L!ve" with Andy Cohen on Bravo. Dear Andy Cohen, I want to be best friends. I hope you read my blog. Doubtful. But I can hope.

Tomorrow is Friday! Hooray! And until then...
