24 packs of Dr pepper can get you through a lot of things

So finals have been pretty rough but I've made it through two and have two more to go... I have a lot of work to do...

My first final was my portfolio class. Ive been trying to get it all put together. It is so much more work then I ever thought.  Its coming along tho so graduation is seeming more and more real. Which is so strange!

The past two nights I have been slaving on my Flash website. Oh my gosh it is crazy how confusing and frustrating it can be but in the end I pulled it off (something I really didn't think was possible) I just work well under pressure. Its funny, this is exactly how my Dad operates. I keep realizing how much I am like my Dad. (Which I am so proud of, I look up to my Dad so much. He is one of the most intelligent and loving men I will ever know) Anyway so I have realized how much I get done in the crunch time zone. I had a couple of weeks to do this assignment and I just wasn't happy with my design. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, considering all I went through to get it to actually function. Pretty much 2 straight days. I slept like 6 or 7 hours over the past couple days. Not advised, but hey that's how I do it.  Here is the link to the site. Check it out :)

This is a little sneak peak at what im working on next for my woodcut printmaking class. Im pretty excited about it! Its a 3'x3' woodcut block.. Its going to have multiple reductive layers... crazy I know (as you can see I am throwing down the diet Dr Peppers... I bought a 24 pack this last weekend and it is almost gone... Steve has only drank a few...

Anyway wish me luck!


  1. Good luck with finals—crazy how I'm not in that boat this year. I have to admit, it's been nice :)

    So, your flash website is SOO much better than mine was. I remember how frustrating that was too—I liked web design, but it's very technical.

    Anyways, you should come visit me and baby asap! :)

  2. Good luck melissa girl! You are awesome! I can't believe how much you've done this semester! sniff* I am just so proud :)

  3. love your flash site! good job! i now want to woodcut. And your printmaking skills rock. Maybe you need to teach me :) hope finals all went well! MISS YOU SO MUCH!!!
