Apparently I am the least responsible person, ever. Second Monday night in a row without sleep; got home at 9:30 this morning. I won’t bore you with the details of my evening but I don’t even know what to do with myself right now. I am exhausted, totally brain dead, and confused as hell. I have to write my take home exam (4-5 pages on ‘What is Zen Art?’ – what kind of broad bullshit is that?), and study for my African Art final and my Target Practice final. I’m so tired I can barely keep my eyes uncrossed, I can’t even deal with everything else right now. Will process the past 24 hours… later.

I just have to say, I love living here – being less than ten minutes away from a dozen beautiful lakeside beaches is just unbeatable. I can’t believe summer is almost over…
First final exam tomorrow – Buddhist Art in Japan (607-Present)
busy day! errands, coffee date, beachside barbeque, house party. It was great hanging out with people I haven’t seen in months – I didn’t realize how much I missed them
Okay, yes, I see the trend towards post-titles/song lyrics. Evidently my creativity has a limit… oh well!
so today was the first real day of our heat wave: 95 F in Seattle and on the Island. Sitting through class was…. miserable. Fortunately, my class on the third floor of the un-air conditioned Art bldg is in the morning, before it gets too unpleasant. Anyway, even the basement was awful — stuffy, terrible – definitely not conducive to looking at slides and still being awake.
Nothing quite like being stuck in traffic, 95 degrees (fortunately, a stellar A/C system) looking at the lake… driving over the lake… drooling over the lake… Needless to say, I went to the beach (again — 8th straight day!) and was parked next to this classic beauty. Ohh Americana…
GORGEOUS day, worked from 8:30-1pm which was faaaaantaaaastic. Got off work, threw on my bikini and booked it to the beach. Ahh, island living…
So we’re driving home from UW, I-90 construction is DONE! Ahead of schedule! Wooo! Express lanes are OPEN! It’s 80 degrees and the sun is SHINING! And we are STUCK IN BUMPER TO BUMPER TRAFFIC.
There was a six car + semi accident on westbound I-90 just after 4pm so by 4:25 when we hit the bridge, we were just in the thick of it. It was awful; two westbound lanes closed by Bellevue fire and rescue, one lane of the express lanes closed because a vehicle practically jumped the partition and we’re crawling to the Island because everyone wants to look at the carnage. Awful. Oh, and did I mention that my gas tank light came on under the Convention center? Yeah.
So I filled up my tank and hit the beach – some nice cloud cover rolled in and there was no one there, except the tai-chi dudes and Cobi, the black lab / border collie swimming in the middle with his frisbee, and Cobi’s owner. The water was perfect :) so I just floated along for a while
my art history class met at the SAM again today, so afterwards I bussed back to UW, hopped in my car and sped away! Right into traffic on Montlake :( Stuck for 35 minutes trying to get from Pend Oreille / E-1 to the intersection at 520 so I can zip through the Arboretum. Ridiculous! I can’t wait for I90 to reopen!!!
Anyway, made it to the beach to hang out with my girls; thanks to Hannah for taking this picture of us trying not to fall off the dock at Madison Park Beach… Nothing quite like driving home in a wet bikini :/ Now, time to get ready for the party tonight!
