Sigh of Relief

[Trumpet sounds and Hallelujah Chorus playing] I'm done. The scholarship application is in the PO Box and my Photoshop project is printed and I have half an hour to spare. I was praying all day long. I went to bed last night at 4:30 ish and woke up this morning at 8:30 ish and immediately kept working. Putting together my packet and running around, burning CDs making copies, driving to and fro. God made this day, although hectic, completely smooth. Everything worked almost the first time, I didn't kill anyone with my bad driving, I even got a coffee and a scone out of it [score.]. The only problem now is I haven't showered today and I'm pretty sure everyone around me knows it. You know what, I just don't care. I'm done. Haaaaaaa...

I put the self portrait in my portfolio for submission but I didn't like the first one, so I changed it. I'm not sure I'm totally happy with the second one either. I like parts of both.
Self Portrait Self Portrait Series #1 - 9x12in, Graphite
I look a little bug-eyed and emaciated in the second one.

good luck on the scholarship!

it's amazing, now that you've switched to art and accepted, how different of a person you are (though still the same ashley). you were always creative, but now it's coming out your pores! your writing gets increasingly vivid, too. it incites both pride and jealousy. :]
