Making Time

I officially hate myself for procrastinating. What is wrong with me?

Usually at this point in the week I’m ahead in my homework, but I find myself just barely on task. And I find myself wasting time due to my inability to focus. I tried reading for AP Art History and I had to re-read a paragraph 3 times before I knew what was going on. Any work that can be pushed off until the weekend doesn't get done until then. Gah.

And I’m stressing myself out because I’m going to be missing A LOT of class in the next few months because of field trips that are mostly mandatory.

Today I took a deep breath and relaxed by painting pottery at The Mud Hut; a little pottery place owned by my friend Madelyn’s family. I went with my friend Andria, who needed to do some relaxing as well. I keep hearing all this drama that’s going on with boyfriends, friends, enemies, and even though I have absolutely no part in it I can’t help but feel stressed out by that too.

My friends have already started talking about Prom dates even though prom isn’t until May. That stresses me out too. I refuse to actually ask I guy (for multiple reasons that I will explain later) and the guys that I would even want to take have recently turned 21, which is one year over the age limit :/.

All this stress is not pretty. See this face?

It’s not a happy, cute, “Hey you should ask me to prom!” face.

Anyways, here are some pictures because I feel bad for not being able to blog as often.

The Mud Hut!This is the mug that I painted for my stepmom's birthday, which is Sunday. It has a dragonfly for each person in our family. I'm excited to see what it'll look like once it's fired in the kiln!
I can't wait to see what my tile will look like once it's glazed :3
IT RAINED. What is this magical liquid falling from the sky?
Owl Nails! I put my own twist on them though.
My friend Rebekka made me a flower out of a kneaded eraser!

  1. I admire your artistic talent! I used to love painting pottery, but I haven't done it in ages... you've inspired me though, I might paint some soon...

    As for procrastination, it's a vicious cycle. Like right now. I have school in 7 hours, but am I writing my rhetorical analysis for Lang? Nope.

    Just think, only about a month until thanksgiving break!

    I wish there was a place where I could go paint pottery nearby. Alas...

  8. You need to relax, homework will always find time to get done, even if you do 30 minutes and take a break. Your pottery work looks really cool and so do your nails. :)
