I've been working on a drawing or two for the illustration class we'll be having over there. So far, my landscapes leave something for desiring... but here's one I did of My parent's front yard.Let me know if any of you recognize this picture. :)

Oh... Friends I am getting SO excited and nervous about this trip!!! Ha ha! I loved this illustration of "swiss cows" doing... what is that? Yoga???? Lol. I don't know. Anyway, thank you all for the birthday wishes!
I'm off to spend money that I have yet to earn!!! My brain is stressing out and I have to keep repeating to myself that school is a worthy cause for spending money I have yet to earn. OH it scares me though!!! Okay, I better go get it done.

BUT... In other news, only 2 weeks left until I leave the country!! I am so excited and nervous!!! I can't wait to see the Alps. I think that is one of the most alluring parts about this trip. It's the Alps, the castles, the lakes, and the cow fights. Yep. Cows. :D (And I suppose it goes without saying... but of COURSE the chocolate and cheese. Not together.)

Yeah, so the whole week of dating pretty much fell through. I still have a date for tomorrow night with Shane. Shane makes me kinda nervous. I don't think he's dated much and he seems kinda controlling. We'll see though.
True to form, Kelly got right up to the moment where the date was actually supposed to take place and decided he had better things to do. That's alright. Kelly is the one who on our first date asked me if I'd like to get a room with him. *rolling my eyes!* I mean really! Is this all that is left out there? COME ON!!!
Neither Thad nor Porter has called me back. (I am just thinking about that "neither/nor" clause I just used. Wondering if I remembered from my English class of last semester how to use the preposition correctly!! How LAME am I?)
AND to top all of this off, my face is breaking out like crazy and I've gained 4 pounds!!! Grrr!
Complain complain complain! Let me tell you what is good about today though: Today, though I miss Justin, I remember a characteristic about him that I never could have lived with. He didn't like to communicate well. He would tell you only part of something when you needed to know all of it to really understand the whole situation. It annoys me when people wont be up front with me. It just makes it much easier.
Another good thing about today; Daniel laughed at my jokes while I was on the phone with him. He had a headache and I only got to talk to him for 6 minutes, but at least he was sweet. :)
Brandon called me and told me I was beautiful.
You probably wonder who all these crazy guys are huh. I wonder that myself sometimes. They're just people I have met chatting online.
I like chatting online. but I get awful tired of it always getting down to the guy asking something along the lines of "are you going to be good in bed? Are you going to want sex at least once every day?" Etc etc etc. Sigh. Of course I'm going to want sex. But do we have to talk about that every time we talk? It makes me feel cheap and like that's all I'm good for. Butt head boys! Can't I keep your attention in any other way?????? COME ON!
Okay, well that is way more than enough from me today. Probably WAY more than any of you wanted to read, but its my blog and gosh dang it, every now and again I need to express myself!

You should check it out at poptropica.com
It was created by Pearson Education and some of the designers work here in Logan. They wanted to give us students a chance to see what it is like to illustrate for them so they offered a class this past semester. They're extending the class through the summer.
I am loving it because now I finally have enough time to work on illustrations for it. Here's a few more from today.

Here's a picture of two of the characters I am working on designing for Poptropica. Let me know what you think.

It turned out that we couldn't go to the Demolition Derby because of all the rain we've had recently so instead he took me on a picnic up in Green Canyon, which I had not previously been to. Its a fun little canyon. We had sandwiches and chips.
We went on a walk and kinda got to know each other. He's really quiet, that made me kinda nervous cuz I am really kinda quiet too sometimes but when I get nervous I talk too much. So I hope I didn't talk too much.
He did put his arm around me, so I guess my talking so much can't have been too terrible. lol. *tee hee* (Girly aside; He put his arm around me... and he held my hand when it got cold. Giggle.) Okay Okay! Enough girlishness.
Yeah, so I had a fun time. He asked me out again for next week. Interesting. I already have 4 dates for next week. I tell ya, when it rains it pours! Crap! I hope I remember which days and times all of these are!
The next one is with Thad. I've never met someone named Thad before. I wonder if that is short for something. He's from Nibley. He rides horses. Pretty cute from his picture huh. He talks real slow on the phone. He's taking me to dinner on ... um... Tuesday. Crap. I think it was Tuesday... He says he's super active. I assume he means physically, but you never know... I guess he could be talking about church and stuff. We'll see.
Anyways, I am glad I had a fun time tonight. Sure wish I could tell what he thought of me. He's hard to read. hmmmm.... What do you think? I was pretty sure the hand holding thing was a good sign. And he didn't try anything more, so that was a better sign. :)
Do you think I should have not let him hold my hand? I never know. Its like I have no social skills to know whats appropriate at what time and all. Because I don't want to seem easy, but I also don't want to seem stiff either. hmmm. I did want to hold his hand because he's cute and yes, I was cold. I guess its all good. I don't know.

I'm kinda sad tonight. I guess just lonley. I was thinking how I just wanted someone to be around. I have lots of awesome friends... Just none that are available to hang out except once every great long while. I miss my friends.
I went for a walk and tried taking some more photos.
They were alright.... Still can't get the camera to do what I want. I hope I start to get it soon. I really want to get good photos in Switzerland.
I finally was so sick of being in the house that I just went and got myself some fries and a burger. and now I'm all zoned out with the movie "field of dreams." Anyways, enough of my rambling. I'll write again when I'm not distracted by a movie.
