music: Je repars- David Usher
Je repars...the absolutely beautiful single released from his newest album, The Mile End Sessions. David Usher co-sung this with the quebecoise singer, Marie-Mai. I stumbled onto David Usher a few years ago, and his music is something that I can't believe I lived without all this time. I wish he'd tour around here, but someday I'll make the trek up to Montréal to see him live.
So, it's the second week of the semester, and I'm pretty much already stressed out. Same issues, different day. I've been sick for what is now the fourth week, and it's tiring. I'm starting to think that this is less of a freak occurrence of the flu and more of a continuation of the lung infection that I've had since well the second half of last semester. I'm just not up for a third round of antibiotics and another hundred dollars down the drain. I hate the cliché saying, but I'm sick of being sick. The classes this semester are going to definitely make me a hermit for quite a bit too...and of course much to my dismay...some of them focus on group work, the lovely sort of "I already know that I'll be doing most of this project on my own" group work.
Everything isn't negative though...I got some lovely prints finished and hanging on my wall which is a small victory for this week, and Ohayocon is right around the corner. Although our table deal fell through at this particular convention; I'm still planning on bringing a small sketchbook with some conveniently placed sample prints to pick up a few commissions.

As I've said, last week has been a little emotional roller-coaster for me with some huge highs and lows...mostly influenced by me being sick. So this was a little piece of catharsis/venting art because sometimes it's just good to get it all out in ways where simple words just fall short.
