It's strange how oftentimes my life will become organized only after I suffer through an exceptionally turbulent period. For instance, on Wednesday night I couldn't sleep at all, so I got up at 6:30am on Thursday and started my day. This might not seem like a big deal, but let's just say that I'm not exactly a morning person. That night I was so tired that I went to sleep at a reasonable hour - midnight - but then woke up at 7:30 this morning with a pounding headache and a terrible realization that I had a paper due in class at 9. I hadn't even started the paper, and it wouldn't be accepted late.

Surprisingly, I busted out the paper in two hours in my living room and made it to class about 45 minutes before it let out. The paper wasn't my best work but I'm pretty pleased with myself considering the time constraints. After class I saw my adviser and sorted out a schedule that will allow me to graduate at the end of this year, which got me thinking about my future options for grad school and employment. I'm beginning to compare landscape architecture to structural architecture, and at this point the former looks quite appealing.

Inspired, I then visited the School of Architecture graduate office and browsed through the application portfolios of accepted non-majors. Some of them were amazing, but I on the whole I know I can create something very competitive. With this in mind I returned to my apartment and finished a painting I had been working on.

Here is the paper I wrote this morning for ANS 361 Suicide In Japanese Fiction.

And here is the painting.

I'm quite surprised you managed to pull it off in 2 hours. Nice save. Btw, I love elephants so I actually really like your painting. =)

I definitely agree that it often takes some sort of major upheaval to create some order or impetus/progress in my life. The problem is, that once the ordeal is done, I'll spend the next few weeks/months staying proactive/organized/etc but after a while I get complacent and fall back into old a result, I hit another patch of chaos and then recreate some structure in my life.

It's a dangerous cycle...and one I should be smart enough to break. But unfortunately, the human part of me seems to need frequent reminders.

I like the elephant, the simple color scheme emphasizes the brush strokes and, in my opinion, a feeling of isolation. Maybe not a bad isolation though, the brightness of it makes me feel like a resolution has been made and thus the elephant may feel like he's standing alone, but with confidence and resolve.

Very good work.
