Hey guys! So my last couple weeks have been pretty good so far. I’ve done some major cleaning in my room thanks to getting a new desk. If you’ve known me for any length of time, you know that my room is my inner sanctum, and I tend to embrace the clutter that happens there.
Not anymore! It’s all clean now, and I’ve even added a fabulous photo of me any my special friend

Recently at the college the Respiratory Therapy program had some displays up for Respiratory Care Week educating everyone about how bad smoking, tobacco, and other things are for you. I always enjoy the pig lung display. It shows what a healthy lung looks like as well as the lung capacity, in relation to a smokers lung. Its actually really cool, and the airflow makes them expand and retract like real lungs. Science is so cool.

I was also really excited to complete my project in Ceramics. My diamond shaped reliquary has been completed! You can’t really tell from the photo but its all sparkly. I covered it with modge podge and glitter! It’s not perfect, but I still really like it.
For my piece to put inside the reliquary I put a little polymer clay dragon necklace inside. Get it? because in traditional mythology dragons guard treasure? Well, I liked that idea!

Speaking of dragons, this is a terracotta dragon that they had on display for my ceramics professor & his colleagues talk on Asian Ceramics. It was all part of a series of events for International Week at my college. I thought it was pretty cool to learn some new things about ceramics, and see some techniques from other countries, as well as learning some of the history.

The Art Club at my college also took a trip up to Columbus to see & experience some art! They had really wonderful exhibits up there. I especially liked seeing all the old masters and being able to recognize their styles & everything from taking art history classes *tears up. They had an amazing exhibit of Picasso, de Kooning, Giacometti, and other masters of modern art at The Wexner. I especially loved seeing Giacometti’s work in real life. I always admired it in our art books, and they’re even more fascinating in person.

Also while we were in Cbus we ate lunch at this cool place called the Ugly Tuna Saloona. Don’t let the name discourage you, they had some awesome Coconut Shrimp, Mango Salsa, & Sweet Potato Fries! Also, my club mates said their orders were great too!

Probably the highlight of my whole week was Halloween Dinner at the Bears Den. OH MAN! They really went all out with their overload of sweets, decor, no lights on, & workers dressed up in costume. The best part was they actually put effort into the food served for once, and had some new tasty treats like popcorn balls, cheeseball, & guacamole! Hands down, the highlight of my week.

Which brings me to the least favorite part of my week…
So, I was pulling into a parking lot with a huge dip, and I was going slow. It didn’t seem to matter that I was going slow though, because the bottom of my car still scraped the sidewalk, and my exhaust pipe was dragging/laying on the pavement & my car sounded like it belonged in a derby. After trying and failing to get some help, we had to call AAA and have them tow us home. On the bright side though, I now know how much tow truck drivers make, and how depressing that is when you realize you don’t make nearly that.

They also have this wonderful invention that I discovered tonight. Apparently you can now get Sausage Biscuits and Gravy in a dispenser at Speedway!
I know, it rocked my world too.
Nothing like getting your breakfast SB&G from a gas station dispenser.

Well, I hope you guys are having an awesome week so far! Have a great one!
