I am trying to keep up with this as best I can but you will all have to bear with me during classes.

I tried going over to the Cal academy of sciences today to do some sketching and research but by the time I got there (1 hour after opening, it didn't seem too late at the time) they were already at capacity and no longer selling day tickets of memberships! I am going to try again tomorrow morning..

Today i have to head into studio once again to finish up a section cut of the Centre Pompidou that is due Tuesday. My goal is to have it finished by 6pm tonight. After that i have to head to Folsom street to get some pictures of a building we are supposed to sketch by tuesday. It has been raining daily for the past week so I am just going to have to take pictures and sketch from those. No way am I standing on the street in a downpour trying to sketch! (that would surly add up to a horrible "are you on drugs?" looking sketch)

Last night (valentines day) was actually a great night :) I hate valentines day, i think it is a corporate created holiday to support nothing but monthly sales quotas. (but I won't get too much into that). I stayed at studio until about 9:45 and then heading over to meet Dan and work. He got out about 10:45pm and we decided to take a walk to find a pizza place we had heard a lot about. As a side note, pizza in San Francisco is a touchy subject with dan and I, since we have been here, almost 8 months now, we have yet to find a good pizza place! Everything out here has really fancy pizza. don't get me wrong, it is fairly good, but it isn't pizza. So we got to the place and each got 2 slices of pizza. It was sooooo good! I got a slice of standard cheese and a pesto veggi. Both were good but the cheese one. Dan loved his garlic clam. The right amount of sauce to cheese to crust ratio :) We walked back through little italy and stopped for desert at this little authentic italian bakery. We both got a cannoli and it was amazing! I have a feeling we will be back there again! It ended up being a completely Dan & Katie night. It was just refreshing to be able to have so much fun and be so relaxed and stress free (even for only an hour) with all of the ridiculously priced roses, balloons, and flowers surrounding us.

:) I hope everyone had a great "holiday" and was equally as happy no matter what you did

I'm off to studio, again!
