Ah, well she's gone now. Today I showed up at school for attendance and then took pictures. The end.
Perhaps I should elaborate.
For the past few weeks I have been working on these two mosaic benches (with an inconsistent myriad of other people) doing everything from scratch including making the patterns, cutting the glass, gluing them down, grouting them, cleaning, etc. Not only was it a long process, it was also very painful. While I should have been wearing gloves, I worked commando due to the fact that 1)My school was too cheap to provide any gloves, and 2)I don't like wearing things on my hands. at. all.
Needless to say I have many cuts and tiny minuscule shards of glass in my hands. Did you know that hand sanitizer is the devil incarnate? No? Well now you know. I was kind of stressed throughout the whole process because Miranda, the other half of our two person team left before even half of it was done, and I had to rely on the help of random stragglers that passed through the art room and felt pity for me and my (literally) bloody hands.
Anyways, I did it pro bono (I was roped into it because volunteering is my kryptonite) for the Sunshine Committee, which is a bunch of ladies at my school that ensures that everyone who is retiring receives a party and gift. Both benches are going to retiring English teachers, and one of them happened to be my AP English teacher this year. Oh how my hands burn in agony D':
But look at how pretty they turned out!
I couldn't bear not taking a picture of my pride and joy before they were being given away. Ah well, they're in a happy place now, probably beside a pool being fondled by grandchildren.
But yeah, after I took the pictures I had some time to kill so I made giant origami cranes. No really, they were pretty giant.
And then when I went home I checked my email and found this:
I am one happy camper. No I take that back, I actually hate camping because of the likelihood of having bugs crawl into my tent and onto me.
I am one happy.... hiker.
