What a wonderful week this has been for me.  It was filled with so much good news, opportunities and the like.  The beginning was a bit stressful, as I was scrambling to complete my record. Printing in the Mac lab is always a big hassle, but once I got all of that finished, I felt a big load off my shoulders and had a nice finished product that I am proud of.  Unfortunately, that caused me to put my type posters off until the last minute, so they are not as great. Spring break should be a nice time to relax and get back into gear.

      There will be a lot of anticipation and waiting over break because I submitted 3 pieces into the Undergraduate catalog, as well as into the undergraduate art show.  The catalog is an annual publication produced by the VC program that publishes up to 3 pieces of artwork from VC or Fine Arts students. I submitted my sequence , my royksopp type, and my green dropcap.  For the undergrad show, I submitted the sequence, as well as my records and my collaborative poster.  Even though I don't know if I will make it into the show or the catalog, it is a great feeling just to submit.

      The anticipation shouldn't kill me too much, because I will be kept busy over break.  I got a job lifeguarding at the UD pool over spring break and he said that I could continue working for the rest of the semester and also next year if I want. Yay!

      I also got the official offer to be manager at the summer pool I work for this week.  That is very exciting and should help my wallet out quite a bit.

      The final exciting piece of news is that an old friend who works at Cupcake Heaven approached me because her boss was looking for someone with artistic talent who would paint a mural inside their store. I immediately thought of the LBO group because we have been looking to paint a mural somewhere.  This is not the ideal place obviously because they have a certain subject they want us to paint about (cupcakes, heaven) but it IS a creative outlet, and we can work our own ideas into it and it is a way to get our names out there and represent the VC program.  Right now I am in the process of looking for 4 to six people to help me out with the mural.

      Well, now it's off to work for me. :)
