If I haven't been around for awhile, then it's because I have been
busy with finals and craft show preparations.
But I would like to take this time to list the happy highlights from my week.
I finally bought a frame for the Winter Soldier art print that I purchased at WonderCon.
And I think it makes a lovely addition to my wall alongside the celestial wind chime,
handmade fairy and elephant postcard.
Today I spent sometime inside my college's art building, admiring all the hard work that hangs
on the walls at the moment. And I couldn't help but look at this large painting with the words "Is this the world you want?" written on it. The words remind me of one of my favorite Switchfoot songs, which the lyrics are the exact same.
And I met this group today at school. A group of fearless ducks, decided to land right next to where I was standing, and spent a few moments following me around and watching me take out my poetry journal. Sure is nice to see a bit of wildlife and they brought a smile to my face.
While on the topic of school, I received back my piano theory test results today with 87% correct answers. Perfect! Because I thought that I was going to get far less than that. And I memorized an entire Italian art song for voice class, which I will have to preform on the last day of class.

Lastly, I ordered this beautiful set of professional watercolors by Winsor and Newton.
For a few years now I have only been using a set of Grumbacher watercolors, that my art teacher
recommended and had me use. And while they are nice and all, I feel the time has come to explore different brands and see which ones work the best for me.
There are many more things that I would like to highlight, but maybe there not as "exciting" as the things I've listed above, so I'll leave it like that.
