The Art of Looking Sideways

I had my last class tonight. You know what that means? I can start doing the little stuff again like reading books for fun!

This is one of them, "The Art of Looking Sideways" by Alan Fletcher. Maybe this should be my graduation present to me!

Cant sleep so I am surfing Flickr

Pin Hole Photography

I never have time to go down to the photography studio this semester. I can do all the stuff I need to on my MacBook and the only time I am ever in the art building now is to go to the painting studio, going down to see all the pretty computers and shiny printers would be a major distraction.

When I went down a couple weeks ago I noticed that Jon had put up some pin hole photos in the hall way, one of them happened to be mine.

It is a photograph I took with a oatmeal box camera. I put it down at the bus stop in front of Shriver and let the paper expose through when the bus pulled up sat there for for three or four minutes and then drove away. That is what made the ghostly "MIAMI" in the photograph. I had no idea he scanned this in and kept it.

Kamal and I got our Graduation Outfits

Today has been crazy! I woke up thinking it was Monday, hoping it was Monday because Tuesday I had crap to get done! Kamal is here today working on the video. He has been here since noon. We also got to pick up our pretty robes and hats! Turns out we get a special sash for graduating during the bicentennial! I also found out that The School of Fine Art's color is brown!? We're in the arts it should be something pretty. Kamal said it is pay back for getting to be a hippie for the last four years.

After that we all stopped at the CAB building to tie up lose ends there. I also switched out my self portrait and food paintings. Time to work on the food painting at home!

PLUS! Remax called yesterday and asked if they could show the house from 6 to 7 today sooo Mark and Kamal paused editing for a bit and came to pick me up from my meeting with Rob around then. We got a quick stop in at Ace and Starbucks. Thank God my class was canceled today.

It's only 8pm right now. Lets see what else I can fit in.


Was reading rockstar diaries the other day and came across an interview with Regina... they asked her about her goals she has set for herself, she has a great way of saying these things. I think it is something that everyone wants but no one knows how to communicate it.


To feel like they’re actually doing something and not just reenacting the same thing over and over, and not getting stuck.

Just opening your mind and seeing more of the world and trying to understand how people live and what they think.

All that stuff that will sound really fluffy and disgusting if you write it down. Just be part of the world. Really really live. You know?

One of my big goals is to just not do things out of fear but [to] be really open, which is hard I think. It’s a full time job for people to stay really open. It’s like a second job.

But also - I don’t think it’s good to just do one thing. I don’t think if you’re a musician you should not just be immersed in music. I think it’s really important that if you’re a musician [to] try writing a play or something. Things need to complete other things.
