I have been extremely busy these past couple of weeks. And I apologize for desserting this place. There has been a lot going on my life right. One is finally done and over with. My ATA (Arts Technology Academy) Portfolio Review was today. It was very tiring. I was one of the leaders of the a group. I basically had to lead a group around to our designated student display area. The group would review their work and rate and give constructive criticism. I, obviously, didn't get the group that reviewed my work. But I didn't have to leave my group to go to my area and give a 3 minute speech and a quick overview of my work before they reviewed it. After I was done, I went straight back to my group. My goodness, some of these people were harsh. We did want your honest opinion but this isn't a professional art critique for Christ's sake! We are just high school students trying to develop a decent amount of skills! I had a quick chance to look at my sheet, and I was pretty happy. I guess they liked my work. The highest overall grade was a 4 and that's exactly what I got. I didn't get a chance to take a picture of my display area, but I will tomorrow. That is if it's still up! Poor Keith. His video got spat on. He was unlucky to have an old lady. His video had a lot of violence so there was no way it was going to go pass her!

Another reason why I have been gone was due to the amount of work that is getting piled up on us these last two weeks. Graduation is just around the corner, and all this last minute stuff is getting up to my neck. I have 2 projects to complete by next week and I'm not even 1/4 way done. Procrastination? Yes. I am also no longer working on the weekends. Amanda quit, so I got her night shift during the week. So my days go from school, home for about 3o mins, then work. Its kind of good in a way because I finally have my weekends to go out. There are so many things I wanted to do. And hang out with people I haven't kicked it with in a while. It should be good, and especially now that summer is just in two weeks. I can not wait until graduation!

A couple of days ago, my art teacher had to go into surgery. I had made her a get well soon card but it just wasn't coming out right. So instead I did what I did best. Baked! I baked her these sweet Mocha cupcakes. I will post pictures of those soon! And the recipe of course.
