so I have decided what I am going to get for a tattoo.

i don't care how dorky it is.  i don't care if people think i am a freak.

i am going to get a tribute to the x-files.

it is going to be a very small x (exactly like the logo)   http://blog.ugo.com/images/uploads/xfiles_logo.jpg with text written in a circle around it that says "i want to believe".

i am very excited.

senioritis has hit hard.

instead of studying for my german i have...

watched youtube videos
watched star trek voyager
talked on the phone
scanned negatives
stared off into space

i am feeling incredibly overwhelmed with work right now.
i can't sleep past 7 AM no matter what time i go to sleep the night before.
my stomach does summersaults all day
i only have two weeks to print my senior thesis which is 15 images... this would be fine if it was the only class i'm taking.

i also have to write a capstone paper for my german major, write a 10 page academic paper for my IDS, finish my cardboard boat, make a self-portrait sculpture for 3D design, write a response to Thesis paper, put together an artist's packet, write my artist statement, not to mention, matte, frame, and hang 15 prints, which have not been printed yet. OI.

i'm freaking out.
