I should not be on here right now. But, I have to post the comment Daniel just made.

"Blogs are the cliff notes to life".

So true!! I was mentioning that I don't have any time to pay attention to anything going on in the outside world and how there were just so many creative/ unique/ quirky items out there. I couldn't comprehend how people find some of these things (though I'm glad they do). They literally do sum up the luxuries of life :)

My grandma was able to have the surgery :) It sounds like she has come out fighting and doesn't plan to stop. She was able to open her eye today, fed herself, and even called my mom at work when she stepped into the office for a few hours! This is such great news especially since it has only been a day since the stroke. (it gives me that "you go girl!" feeling haha)

Grandpa was moved into his temporary "home away from home" in the Hospice care center. He apparently made it very clear to the nurses and doctors there that they shouldn't get used to his face because he is getting better and heading home. Goodness he makes me chuckle. I hope he can come back and stay at home again very soon.

Daniel and I are heading out next week Thursday for Holland. It definitely could not have come at a better time.

Want to see what my typical week looks like?

M: Sketching workshop 6:30-9:30pm
T/TH: Studio 12-6pm
F: 2D media & design process 10-1pm
F: Architectural History 1 1:30-4:30pm

Studio requires 33 hours of work per week, outside of class. (45 hours a week total per week if you include in class studio time)
2D media & design process requires 10 hours of work per week outside of class. (13 hours total per week if you include class time)
Architectural history 1 requires 10 hours of work per week outside of class. (13 hours total per week if you include class time)

GRAND TOTAL: 72 hours per week (minimum) required for classes. If we get really creative; that means 10 hour days, 7 days a week. Yep. Good thing once I graduate my pay scale jumps to 6 digits :)

Hopefully everyone can understand why I haven't answered many calls this week or have returned a call at very odd hours of the day. I can be found in the studio, the library, or off in some random corner of the city sketching my butt off.

I love you all & hope your weeks are going well. Please keep my family in your prayers & thank you for all of the prayers already sent. They have obviously been received.
