Art Educates...and so does studying...

Well, the semester is all done as far as classes go and its been study time for me!  Exams start on Wednesday and last for 10 days...luckily mine are spread out so I have extra time to study...although today I studied for about 16 hours so I'm not sure if my eyes can last that long B-)

Anyway, this Friday we got to take a break and go to the Art Educates Gala and Art Show at the Katzen Fine Arts Center at my school.  Maria (my Dad's first wife) and my sister Marissa invited Seth and I to attend and we had a great time!  The main purpose was to raise money for the Centronia Arts Center for the youth in the area - they had an auction and craft sale (we even bought a piece of student art for our home!)  It was a good time and, in addition to the nice spread and open bar, we got to meet a lot of really cool people - the Madam Under Secretary of State to Hillary Clinton, the ambassador to El Salvador, and a Federal Judge (to whom Maria sent my resume!)...very nice and so grateful to have a break and to be included in something so fun - thanks Maria and Marissa!!!

Me and Seth all dolled up and ready for the gala :)

The piece we bought is already hanging up!

Anyway, that's about all I got for this week (and while there is still another day left, I can tell you the studying that is to come isn't really blogworthy haha!) so I hope all is well with you guys!  Wish me luck on exams and soon enough I will be done for real with my first semester of school!  Yay!  xoxo

I can honestly say I have never studied 16 hours straight in my life! I know I'm not even capable of such things.

Best of luck with your exams. I'm sure you'll do well!
Can't believe the semester is just about over!!!!! Yay!
