home sweet home.

it was so nice to be back home. like a mini-vacation from life. i get to leave all my troubles behind. thanksgiving was a blast, my family is amazing. my little niece is getting so big, she talks so much and is quite the attitudy judy these days. it was wonderful to see so many friends from back home, even if it was for just a short time. lots of smiles and laughs, and being comfortable. i feel like this was just a preview for events to come, because christmas is right around the corner. the countdown begins all over again, just get through these next few weeks. until then, its back to telephone conversations and sweet text messages.

hair cuts: the ultimate procrastination tool.

so the other day my roommate and i decided to cut my hair. our goal was to make it look like Elliott's from Scrubs. we were trying anything and everything so that we didn't have to study! here's the outcome:
Chelsea rules!

sneak peak.

ok, so midterms aren't quite over yet, but yesterday i was so burnt out, i needed an outlet! i started sketching out this painting i want to do. it's inspired by all my favorite music artists at the moment. i can't wait to get some new canvas and to start playing!
and this is a song i can't stop listening to.
'Gravity/Grace' by Crime in Stereo

like spelling it with a "z" makes it any better!

ohhh man, i just laughed until i could no longer breathe. it's around 2am and my roommates and i are all up, definitely not studying, definitely being extremely giddy to the point where everything is hilarious. midterms tend to make us a little crazy.
i can't wait for thanksgiving! midterms will be over, i'll get to see my family and friends back home, and hello leftovers! then maybe i'll have a little time on my hands to start this art project thats been stirring in my head. these are the images inspiring me lately.
alright, time to try to get some sleep. no guarantees though :)

holler at my IT girls!

after receiving a VERY hilarious phone call from Dr. Sean McNamara and Dr. Christian Troy, courtesy of miss Nancie, i decided to give a little shout out to all my amazing IT girls. you all have no idea how important you are to me, all of your calls and letters mean the world to me and i love you all so much!

, it was so great talking to you the other night. i miss our chats so much, i am so fortunate to have a great friend like you in my life that i can turn to whenever i need to. i seriously do thank my lucky stars to have you in my life :)
Nancie, you have become like a second mother to me. from the early days at the beehive when you wanted to do anything and everything to help me out, even getting me a fabulous hand bag for prom, i've always appreciated everything you've done for me. i feel extremely blessed to have a wonderful person like you looking out for me.
Daniela, i can't even tell you how happy i am when i get to see you. you're little emails here and there make me feel so special, i really miss seeing your happy face every week! you're such an amazing woman, if i live my life half to the extent that you have i'll know i did something right. you're such an inspiration, and i am so grateful to have you in my life.
Tabitha and Laura, i have no pictures with you! we must do something about this asap! you both mean so much to me, and i'm so proud that you've become part of the MDW team. thank you both so much for always supporting me and being there for me. i know i can always count on you for advice, and of course a good laugh! Sharon Fletcher! i also have no pictures with you so if you got 'em, send 'em over! your emails are so comforting, it definitely means a lot to me that you take time to write me every once in a while.

Sheri, i don't know if you're calling yourself an IT girl but you definitely are in my book. you have given me so many amazing opportunities. i am so lucky to have stumbled across you and your wonderful store. you were so welcoming and i really felt like we had a special bond there towards the end of our fabulous journey together. i appreciate everything you have done for me, you have been so very supportive and it means the world to me.

words cannot describe how much i love all of the wonderful women that have come into life because of our common love for the arts. i think this bond that we have in incredibly special and will be there for always. i can't wait until the next time i get to see each of you, i miss you all with my whole heart. i love you guys! i'm ending on an incredibly funny note. this is a card miss wendy and miss nancie gave to me at my farewell get together at My Daughters Wish.
on the inside it says, "it's sort of a shame, though. i was about to make you some macaroni and cheese... yummmm.... cheese. but go."

no way november ...whutt?

lately i've been obsessed with the ellen degeneres show! haha. i can't believe it's already november. what's even more shocking is that i just signed up for next quarter's classes! everything moves so fast here. i've only lived here for two months but it seems so much longer than that. i'm almost approaching my next round of midterms, yikes! i have been keeping a healthy balance of work and play though, i've lots going on in the painting department of my room these days. i can't wait for the next few weeks to fly by, i'm really looking forward to thanksgiving. because then before i know it it'll be winter break. i'm so excited for my classes next quarter, i'm taking intro to ecology, systemic physiology and physics. it'll be a nice change of scenery i think. lets just hope i don't get too distracted at my friend chris' house playing guitar hero 3!
