Everyone claims to be a procrastinator. I am not an exclusion. Nowhere near it. I always ALWAYS get immensely stressed when I notice I’m not constantly working hard on something. I hold extraordinarily high standards for myself. I rarely, if ever, meet them. This usually causes me to spiral into a self loathing pit. Without the help and support of the lovely Noel Rogers, I would not be able to come out of that too quickly. Thank you for all the things you do for me.
I have been particularly anxious lately because classes are coming to an end and today I had to have surgery. I won’t discuss the surgery today. The classes, however, will be discussed. Hooray! You all care so much don’t you!
My current 3D Design project is to create something that demonstrates personal space. I am making a shell out of apoxie sculpt. This is a material that comes in two parts, must be mixed together, can be worked with up to 3 hours, and then hardens within 24 hours. This is ideal for a shell because a hard shell made out of a hard, uniform material says something much different than a shell made out of cotton balls or beads. I want my shell to say defense. It’s due this Friday and it isn’t anywhere near done. Mostly because I haven’t started it…
In Art History, I have to memorize 63 knowns and so many artists/periods. I can’t imagine how I’m going to get through it without crying at some point from all the stress.
I only have one last English 102 class left. I have to write a something hundred word essay within 3 hours. It is going to SUCK. Oh, and because I had my surgery today, I missed class…so I missed the essay questions that I can choose from. Cool huh? Good luck to me.
Ceramics has been a big stress factor lately. Yesterday was the last day to work in wet clay. That means I have to have everything made and ready to be bisqued, glazed, and glaze fired. I rushed my last few project and am really upset by it. I did not dedicate enough time to making sure I would be happy with the results. I rushed the shit out of one worth 15% of my grade. It’s my fault though because I decided to avoid school work and take care of my personal life. Alright, enough of that.
Regardless, here are some shitty pictures I quickly took of some of my projects for ceramics.
