We shed what was left of our summer skins…

Mom’s vertigo is definitely back -and with a vengeance. Now it’s no longer posterior but horizontal (no, I have no idea what it means but it’s super icky) and she has been wicked sick all day. It’s awful, I feel pretty much helpless.

REUNITED

>

After a summer-long hiatus, the bestie is BACK – in black (well, ginger, really) I love this girl and it doesn’t matter that summer is almost over and my Knight is halfway around the world because she is BACK. On a related note, the other bestie leaves in like three days and I’m beside myself with panic and undecided angst :(

On another note, I got my MacBook back!!! And then I realized that the fools who replaced my harddrive managed to somehow disable my optical drive. Fantastic. Back to the Apple Store I go, grumbling all the way…

Sunny with a high of 75

>

It was a beautiful 88 today; and I enjoyed it for all of five minutes as I ran between final exams. Up til three working on a take home final, after not sleeping the night before, turned it in at 11 and had to stick around for a half hour long required lecture (even though we’ve taken our exam and turned in our paper), then ran off to my second final (Africa) which was mostly fine, except I had to run to the disability office halfway through, and had to write the essay in 15 minutes (I should have had 45 minutes) but I had to leave at 2:10 to literally run back across campus to the room next door to Africa and was still five minutes late. I was exhausted, stressed, nauseous and I pretty much collapsed in the chair and starting sobbing. It was undignified and awful. BUT I’M DONE. I’M BLOODY DONE.

Except, oh wait, I still get to go to two classes on Friday, you know, just for the hell of it. This is ridiculous.

wha?

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.

splish splash

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)

Senorita Flippy-Floppy

Rainbow season is slowing coming to an end… the sun is setting closer to 8 pm, it’s been hovering in the 60s all week and I have a sinking feeling that I’ll need to break out the cable knit sweaters pretty soon… sigh.

oh dahling

Well our Seattle Summer has returned – 60 degrees, slightly humid and overcast until about 3 this afternoon. Lovely. Anyway, after class headed over to Volunteer Park for Lena’s water fight birthday party. The weather pretty much sucked, but we still had a good time and I took the opportunity to snap some shots of the dahlia garden and the Conservatory… check out my flickr for the best of the best :)

It’s getting hot hot hot

and I thought yesterday was smogtastic… gorgeous pollution.

And yes, that is really what my dashboard thermometer read at 1:43 pm this afternoon. It ended up being 103 in Seattle today, 102 on Mercer Island. Today was officially the hottest day in Seattle’s history – beating out the historical record by 8 degrees. I was seriously tempted to run through the sprinklers on campus, but the 6 year old summer campers beat me to it :(

smogtastic

Okay, first of all, I definitely went on a run this morning. Yes. I know. Laugh all you want. I got up at 5:45 am and went jogging. It wasn’t exactly “fun” but it wasn’t as awful as I remember either. We’ll see how this goes…

Anyway, I guess one of the major aesthetic advantages to this heat wave (today we topped out at 98) is that all of the pollution makes for gorgeous sunsets. Observe, exhibit A.

highway to hell

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…

Oh Seattle weather… 50F overnight, 60F when I went to work, 75F when I left work and then a thunderstorm at 7 pm / 82 F. Yeah.
