How are you? It's been a while. I'm doing well. Really, really, really well. I have had a pretty amazing year. I'm applying to colleges in the fall and have been working on my art portfolio all summer, so I'm a little tired, but I am fantastically happy with the state of things right now. Everything is great.
Happy 2012! I don't think I've actually posted anything since like December or something. I got distracted with other things and decided to put the blog on the back burner, but now I miss it. Right now I'm painting a still life I've set up with some broken glass and a marble and watching 28 Days Later on my computer while I type this. You know, I really do like zombie movies. Zombie anything, I guess. For the most part I'm not a big horror/gore person, but for whatever reason zombie/post apocalypse is one of my favorite genres. I watched an interesting indie short film (can't remember what it's called, sorry) the other day about this very young couple trying to escape their city in the midst of a zombie outbreak. I liked it because it didn't focus as much on the graphic elements that may be expected in a zombie flick (less blood and guts), and something about the lack of dialogue and the way it was shot made it seem so tragically romantic. I wish I could find it again.
It's kind of nice to write without direction, isn't it?
Oh my goodness, I am so happy right now. Lovin' life. I've got a few friends coming over today and I think I hear them in the driveway, so I'd better go. I'll be back in a little bit, see you all soon. :)
