So there is this woman and she was on an airplane

First off I just want to let everyone know that this beautiful photo in my banner was taken by Mr. Shane Fester. My lovely housemate and a very talented photographer! Check out his rad blog!

So today was an amazing day! First I got up early and managed to take out money for class, a miracle considering class was at 9!

Then once we got to our meeting place we found out our art history teacher, Peter Porsal, was sick! And we were all very sad but ended up going to this amazing exhibit at Palazzo Strazzi called Art and Imagination all about deception and tricks of the eye from renaissance to present. I got these really wicked holographic postcards that were outrageously priced but i just had to get them! (Sorry for the bad photo quality!)

Then my housemates and I went to pay our rent at 12, we've been putting it off since the first!

And then I went straight to the studio where I worked on my painting until three and then had a critique with my teacher. I think it went well and after we booked me in for some portrait modeling in class! A little weird but I am excited! Now I am done my last directed project! On to self study, which is exciting and scary all at the same time! It was such a relief to be done anyway, everyone is still at the studio staying up all night to finish for tomorrow! After I had some free time so I finished a drawing from life modeling class, I really like how it turned out! While watching Gossip Girl with my friend Tamara, yes one of my many not-at-all-guilty-about-it pleasures!

Finally on the way home I went and got a SIM card for my cell phone! Phone in 24 hours! And I went grocery shopping to make some food for the air plane, because tomorrow I fly off to Denmark to see my friend Lene! She was an exchange student who lived with my family when i was young for a year when she was in highschool. I am really excited about traveling to another european country! I plan to make sandwiches with fried mushrooms and zucchinis, tofu cooked in soy sauce, sundried tomatoes and ricotta cheese on my favourite chiabatta buns from the supermarket! Vegetarian DE-light.

Unfortunately when I got home my roof was leaking and water had gotten in my makeup because its been pouring all day! But Shane had put some bowls down so the puddles weren't too bad and no water got inside of the cases! Woo hoo!

Now I'm sitting in my room listening to Bright Eyes, about to pack and make dinner and maybe watch a movie!

What a wonderfully productive dayyyyy!

When I get back from my trip on Monday night I'll post some pictures of my painting and drawing and of my travels! Bon voyage!
