fall so far

so far Fall quarter has been okay. we've both got a sculpture Class and a french lit class together. she has a basic math class and i have a physical anthropology class. we are doing our portfolio reviews this quarter also. that's a little stressfull. if we pass, we get to move on into taking mostly studio classes and if not then they kind of either recommend a different emphasis or kick you out or something. i don't know if i quite have enough work that i feel like i want to use for it. money is of course an issue keeping me from getting some more work done between now and then. also our computers are not doing great, they are getting old and each has different quirks and problems.

it is nice each having our own art studio here at home. mine kinda still looks like i just moved in, but i'll get to working on the room after the review. amber's studio looks awesome of course, it is super comfy in there and a nice place to chill. our nice little front rooms is currently serving as a tool and supply room, while the attic loft is a giant living room / dining room / play space. hopefully the front room will get transformed into something more comfy or useful and we can figure something out in part of the upstairs.

i've been playing music again in the last couple of days. singing too. it's nice, as i haven't really done much of it for a while, certainly not acoustic and most certainly no singing. amber's been playing a lot all summer and fall. i've been playing with her on occasion. i started playing on my own again after a really inspiring dream that i had. i don't have dreams of playing and singing on a stage ever, really, so it definitely stuck out to me as important.

i'm so glad we went on our journey this summer. so much has changed. its like i just know everything is gonna be okay- even that it's all gonna be great. it was certainly one of the best things we have ever done we both agree. i have some journal writings / scribblings from the road and from just thereafter that i will sort of go back and post into their proper time/date as best as my memory serves.

i want to go see monsters of folk somewhere this fall. jim james and conor oberst are both major influences and inspirations for me and i just think a quick trip to new york (or philadelphia) would be worth it. i actually would be okay with going to philadelphia to see them and then trying to go to new york and spend a week in december. i suppose it will be cold there but i'm sure that it is best i know such things. portland is just the same. sf will be warm and sunny, but right now i'm more interested in the other two and besides it is beyond our means, but then again so is everything. saw the flaming lips a few weeks ago down the street here at promowest. we got right up front of the stage, and wayne made such a magical show for us all. i'm glad we went. hopefully we can get on the road again soon and pay an overdue visit to some friends in west virginia. our car is getting a little old to be making the trip, but as long as it isn't winter, it will probably do ok. i miss some of our old friends and wish it were easier for us all to get together. i also want to go hiking before all of the trees undress. we'll probably have to skip class one day to go, but i think it is only fair- we should be allowed to go to yellow springs and enjoy some of the autumn-- well it has been pretty grey and rainy as of late, so perhaps by the time we can go it will get nicer.

well off to bed. i've got quite a bit of plaster sculpting to do tomorrow, plus a printmakers exhibit-opening night and then a party at a friends house.
