Squeaking Art

I wonder if–during the entire expanse of World War II–Hitler ever thought, “Hmm, maybe this was a bad idea.”

The other day I was watching The Office.  It was the episode where Michael kidnaps the pizza delivery boy.  Toward the end, he realizes what he did and let him go.  That’s when I thought of the Hitler bit.  I wonder if it just hit him all of a sudden.  Oh snap!

I guess he got what he deserved.

I’ve been preparing my art portfolio for Sophomore review, which has me stressed.  (Sophomore review is why this post is short, sorry)  I have to present next week.  It’s a thirty minute presentation.  It essentially determines whether I am rubbish or not rubbish at art, and whether or not I get to continue on to 300 level photography classes.  I met with the advisor for Sophomore Review today.  “Well…you’re drawings are bad,” he told me.  He’s actually a really nice guy, but he has to be honest for this.

“I know,” I replied. “But I’m a photography major.” As if that would make some sort of magical difference or something.

“Well, you’re going to get abuse for these drawings.  If you have all your 2d stuff, and if your photos are good quality.  You’ll squeak by.”  He told.

Squeaking isn’t what I had in mind.  I know my stuff isn’t the best, but squeaking by is what I had hoped to avoid.  I was going to aim for a fifteen to seventeen out of the possible twenty points.  I wouldn’t be disappointed if I scored lower, as long as I scored at least a 9.5, the lowest possible score.  I feel like squeaking by is aiming right for the 9.5.  The problem with that is if something goes wrong there is no where else to go.  I would appreciate loads and loads of prayer.  Although, I know, pass or fail, everything is going to be fine.

That’s what’s going on with me right now.  I got a new to do list app.  It’s called Epic Win, I have it scheduled to remind me to post here every other day.  I hope that will do the trick.  You should check the app out! It’s loads of fun!
