Full Moon and other goodies
I was able to capture a quick shot of the full moon from Saturday night. I do love the moon. I believe I have talked about it before, but just in case you are reading my blog for the first time, I will say it again. The moon is way cool!
I am feeling quite happy, because I finally finished my applications to graduate school!!! Yay!! It took me forever, because you are required to write a "Statement of Purpose", about what qualifies you to pursue graduate studies, what you hope to accomplish, your career goals, and things like that. It was pure agony, writing that darn essay. I am fortunate to have a friend here (thanks Marjorie) and my husband, who both read and re-read what I had written. I couldn't have done it without you two!!! I will mail the applications for UC Irvine and UCLA tomorrow. (I already sent in UC Riverside.) What a relief!
Now I need to focus on new art for my upcoming exhibition in the True World Gallery in February. The opening is on February 21st, for those of you who live nearby and wish to attend. I have got quite a bit of art already, but I wouldn't mind having a few more fabulous new pieces for this gallery.
I finally broke down and gave Pono a much needed bath. It actually ended up being a shower (his first one!) because it was really too cold to bathe him outside. He doesn't like the bath part, but the towel rubbing at the end is bliss!
It's not too late to sign up for my giveaway. The drawing takes place on Wednesday, so hurry! I would write more, but since I have been doing nothing but writing for the past three days, I hope you will forgive me if I take a little break!
