I guess I should mention that I'm studying in London for a month and I haven't been checking dreamwidth very often. And I'm awfully tired, so I can't think of anything more to say. Cheers, I guess.
I've just been arguing with a friend via email about how to coordinate our schedules for next semester, and then I realized I don't even know what classes are available or what I can take, so apparently I just like being annoying for the sake of it. I'd rather not have a Saturday class, but I think I'll have to if I want to take the wildlife drawing class. My schedule sucks. I have no idea how I'm going to fit my work hours around it.

So, the library where I work has murder mystery nights for the teens. When they need people to play the suspects, they would ask the other Pages, but I always got snubbed. I was so snubbed I didn't even know we were having one until it was already over. And I figured, okay, whatever, they don't know I like murder mysteries and acting. So the last time we did one I told them I wanted to be in it and got a part.

Right? Well, I just found out we're doing another one and, once again: snubbed. Utterly. I'm like, um, but I was really enthusiastic about the last one and I thought I would continue to be included (because I asked to be), and the other Pages (including the new ones) automatically got parts and it's like I don't exist... Yeah, my feelings are easily hurt. Seniority, enthusiasm, and telling people what I'd like to do apparently have no affect. Helloooo, world, notice me.

And, on a non-woe-is-me note, I'm going to paint. I primed my canvas with the tan acrylic I have lying around, but then I realized I only have crappy brushes and a palette I never cleaned all semester... ever. To the art store, I go.
So, guess what, it's Tuesday. I think I sprained my middle finger because I was flipping people off too much doing so much graphic designing on my laptop these past few weeks, and I use that finger on my touchpad. I keep telling myself I'll take a break, and yet here I am.

I finally ordered my Traveler's History of England for my summer class in London, and I also ordered the model making book I posted about last time, because I always have to order more than one book on Amazon. I almost ordered The Dark Behind the Curtain, a kid's book about a performance of Sweeney Todd, but I found it at my school's library, so I'll make a trip to get it tomorrow.

And I have some art today. Because this is a creative journal and all that.

I've been a little, "Ummm, uhhh..." about posting something, on a new journal and all. It's a little odd. Should I just post about whatever, or should this be a place to focus on talking about Sweeney stuff? Well, how about both.

Ten minutes before midnight I got my Graphic Design final done. I was pretty surprised it only took an hour. Tomorrow I will be officially done with this semester! And then I can start procrastinating on my art for the rest of the summer. But I will start working on a graphic novel, I swear!

I've also been looking on Amazon for books to teach myself scenic design a bit, and I happened to find a book with the author's original Sweeney Todd set design on the cover:
