While my roommates have all been pretty busy lately (Lauren has her documentary that she's working on with our friend Sheila due April 1, Alex just finished her business plan, and Cait just had to give a presentation on her thesis), last weekend and this past week we found some time to relax in a way that was new for all of us: by painting.
On Saturday (during the weekend before break), Cait, Lauren, and I went out to A.C. Moore and picked out some canvases and paint supplies. That night, we had a few of our friends come over and paint with us. I ended up with some abstract art because I'm not the best with actual pictures:
I forgot to take a picture of my second project, but I painted this quote I recently found: "Take pride in what you have accomplished and faith in how far you can go." (There seems to be some speculation on who originally said it.) Regardless, I thought it was quite fitting as I enter the final stretch of my senior year at Saint Mike's (yikes!).
Since we still have a lot of paint left, I definitely see myself picking up some more canvas before the semester is over. I'm so happy that my roommates encouraged me to do this because it probably wouldn't have crossed my mind otherwise!
Time for me to get back to some homework! To all the recently accepted students, congratulations! Looking forward to seeing many of you next weekend at the Open House!
Thanks for reading!
PS I've been listening to a lot of random music lately, but a lot of my listening time has been devoted to the audio version of the book Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I really like it so far!
