Not feeling productive at all, so I'm just working little bits on everything I've already started. Ho-hum. Not in a bad mood or anything, just feeling sort of directionless!

I'm working on a painting for the AC art show, and just figured out the lighting and if I can pull it off. . .this is going to be epic. I'm so intimidated. PLEASE let me pull this off!

So I'm off at this magical field station. There are bugs galore, friendly people, kayaks. . .all sorts of reasons to be happy, but I'm still feeling kind of depressed.
It's probably because I've been holed up all day and feel bad about it. But I'm sick, and it doesn't feel good to be outside right now. Which is depressing because I want to be outside. but standing and being chilly and moving just. . .don't feel good!
And I'm alone. Which would normally be fine but I'm already sad to be inside and there's nothing to keep my attention focused on something positive. The friends I've made here are outside (of course) and Sam is far, far away (and busy, at that). I don't even have phone reception to call my mom or something dumb like that.
I don't know. Just crying a bit. I was really happy yesterday (there is seriously so much to be happy about), and I'm sure I will be again as soon as my body gets over this stupid head-cold. It just sucks that this is happening on my last weekend here. I want to be happy again sooooooo bad, but right now I just want to go home.

last week I feel like I was pretty productive, studywise. .. So yesterday I cleaned all day:
-Transfered my hissing roaches to a new cage, braught them into the rat/study room.
-planted onions (red and white), basil, and spinach
-braught the frogs into the rat/study room
-cleaned out all of the old fly containers
And today I thought 'I'll work on a commission for a break!'. . . but this character that I'm making is COVERED in "tribal" markings, and instead of feeling relaxed, I'm feeling frustrated.
I have until 3 to get these things done:
Pawpads covered in fleece and attached to paws
zipper attached to neck
tufts of hair added to head
whiskers added to head
and waiting for my beets to get done. Tuesdays and Thursdays I have 'Food and Society' 8:30 in the morning, and I almost never eat before it. So today we talked about eating in-season blahblahblah and beets were mentioned, which I love. . .so now I'm roasting beets and I just want to eaaaaaaaaaaat theeeemmm!
Anyhow, hopefully this stupid head will be done (furred and shaved. will probably still need some paint and whiskers) today. pictures later D:
