Cassatt And Busy-ness (business?)

I haven’t been as active on here as I would like. My life has been a little bit lacking in sanity, particularly this week. The show I was in which was postponed due to THE SWINE was rescheduled to this week (our last show is on Saturday), I have auditions for the next show, I had about 5 days to get interviews and write my first article for the school newspaper, and this term I took on a new academic class–Eastern Philosophy.  I am SO looking forward to continuing with it.  We’ve been doing a lot of introductory stuff the past few days, but have been reading Zen and the Art of Archery.  Wonderful book.  The closest you can get to understanding that sort of thing if you can’t actually learn it yourself is to sort of ride on the shoulder of somebody who is learning it, or did learn it.

Soon, I hope to get up photos of my costumes for the play (What I Did Last Summer-A.R. Gurney) and some photos of me before the Semi-Formal dance which is on Saturday.

In the spirit of the season, I have put snow on my page, as well.  Play around with it, waste some time during study hall.  Good stuff.

I am also completely obsessed with All Things Renoir And Cassatt at the moment.  So I switched my header from Renoir to Mary Cassatt.  Also good stuff.

my current background:

Did I mention my birthday present, my preeeeciousssss?

The weekend before thanksgiving there was a big CTY reunion at MIT Splash. I didn’t go to many classes, but it was absolutely gorgeous. Plus, my then-boyfriend came up to visit from FL which was very nice.

Best friend + then-Boyfriend + doing ninja jumps=ABSOLUTE BEASTLY BEASTS:

I see the resemblance.

The potholes at Shelburne Falls…

plus some pumpkin

Some guy taking pictures along the Charles asked if he could take our picture. We said yes, of course.
