Today I have embarked on a new hobby. Today I sauntered
down to my favorite Twin Cities
' game shop, Pheonix Games
, and bought two brushes and 10 little pots of paint so I could begin painting the steampunk
miniatures I bought at GenCon
last weekend. It took me all afternoon, but I really like how things went. If things continue to go well, I may do a writeup on how to paint metal miniatures
Of course, what I really should be doing is:
Jumping Jesus onna Pogo stick
- Work on honors' thesis
- Review Japanese
- Study for Computer Science GREs
- Make stuff with OpenGL for my portfolio.
! I feel like such a crappy student at times like this. At least I'm doing my yoga
again so I feel a little more in shape.
I suppose I do feel justified in that, in painting that little metal figurine, I made art today. Of course, "I don't want to make art, I want to be happy."
I'd like to start writing poetry again. Perhaps I can sit down and work on that tomorrow. I also want to try drawing again. Of course, none of this stuff has any relation to anything that I should be doing. -sigh- Mark Twain would have mentioned something about fences and whitewash, but he's dead. Oh well.
So then, I guess I'm reviewing kanji tomorrow. I will be an ii gakusei yet.
