The other part of me is FREAKING OUT. distraught. worried. 
doubtful. lazy. nervous. 


however that part is really important. 


without it - we would have no empathy. understanding. need for love. 


we wouldn't be looking for amazing things that matter. 





LIKE THIS:





LIVE ART.





Hear me out on this. I talk about it all the time.


But this is the most important project I have been a part of.

Difficult is the only guarantee.

time: almost midnight.

ew. I knew this would be a tough little series of deadlines.
but I always think when a project is over that I will - catch up. 
ha. never. 

but really who wants to catch up. 


probably someone lame.


because if you are going somewhere... you can't stop.


__________


I don't usually post things "in progress" before I have the final picture to post with it. 


But I also don't usually eat so many thin mints. 

__________



so . in honor of my second all-nighter in a row. I want to show you what my roommate found me with. 





                                            *mid-construction of a lion puppet for a dance production.



stay tuned. final images will be on here sooner or later. but I have a long night ahead. of ... 

finishing this guy. and 32190312 other things.



hes not done. hes just here. and I thought someone should know. 




__________



And.

while I am walking through the day sleep deprived. I am reminded even more how blessed I am. 
by my support.
my opportunities.
and my challenges. 

people are so good to me. 

and my life is not boring.


__________



I'm gonna go make coffee. 

I know. the thought at this late hour makes me ill too.
