[Project Runway]

OH GOD MY ANYA IS STILL SAFE. I was so, so very worried. But she really is a quick thinker. I will just keep my fingers crossed that she makes it.

[/Project Runway]

Okay, now that I've gotten my guilty pleasure out of the way...

School is eating my brain. This last week was hellish, and next week is going to be just as bad. Mostly because I'm trying to have priorities and keep up with all of my school stuff. But this week I had two stories that I had to finish and send off in the hopes that someone will give me money for them, and then next we're doing promotion for kung fu so I have to study and ARGH. I just constantly feel like I'm going to explode. And really, I just desperately want to hide under my desk with my keyboard and write, because I'd much rather be doing that.

Fall 2012. I just have to keep my shit together until then. But it feels so very hard sometimes.

Today Mike and I went to the symphony; they played Holst's The Planets and it was fantastic. Jupiter is still and will always be my favorite. It was a good end to a day that started out terribly. I had to cancel my tutoring appointments and stay home because I felt so incredibly awful - I think it's because I had a super greasy hamburger for dinner last night and it just was doing awful things to me. I'm still not feeling great, but it was good enough to go to the symphony and eat some inoffensive sushi. (Oshinko roll, I choose you!)

Tomorrow I head up to Wyoming for Rocky Mountain Rendezvous. I really don't want to go, because it's a lot of stress and eats up most of my weekend and my Monday as well. But I don't have much of a choice, because going another summer without an internship is simply not an option. Though to be honest, if I hadn't gotten some interviews set up in advance, I wouldn't have bothered. Last year didn't do me any good when I just went around and tried talking to the recruiters in person because they obviously weren't excited about interviewing me, and it was a pointless waste of time. But this year, I have six (HOLY SHIT) interviews set up already. Which is just INSANE. And there is part of me thinking, where the hell was everyone last year when I desperately needed a job? I don't know what an extra year has done for my resume, I really don't. But I've got some nice new clothes and my game face ready and hopefully I'll make some money this summer.

Wish me luck. Considering how much I suck at interviewing, I need it.

LOL! I didn't know you liked that show! :) Yes, anja is pretty awesome. Only bad thing from her was the mens wear challenge. :) And I am glad that sent Olivier home that time. :)

It's totally my guilty pleasure show! I used to catch it whenever I could, and then I finally got to see an entire season last season thanks to hulu.

She had a rough time with the men's wear, but I think if they gave it to her to do again she'd come up with something a lot better. I just loved how she recovered so amazingly from losing all of her money! I think she really impressed the judges, so hopefully if there's another men's wear challenge somewhere in there, they'll cut her some slack. Because I SO want to see what she'd come up with for fashion week!

And I'm glad hey sent Oliver home too. I was getting so tired of him whining about people not being rail thin, or women daring to have boobs. And it's a bad sign when I know nothing about fashion and his color palette was starting to get on MY nerves even. I'm surprised Michael Koors didn't strangle him or something.

I got into it about 2-3 seasons ago when this designer, Christian Siriano was on it (and WON!) Ijust fell in love with him and have been hooked ever since. I love the creativity involved.

And yeah, Oliver and his problems with people who were human and not manicans. That whole "I don't like boobs, I don't like plus size..." blah, blah. He will go no where in the industry. I kinda was sad that Anthony Ryan left though I can see why he did. I just find Josh FAARRRRR more annoying. :)
And I am with you. Anja will kill during Fashion Week. I totally want to see her collection.

That's the thing. I seriously don't understand why they kept Josh instead of Anthony Ryan. I feel like they kind of err on the side of keeping the drama queens. But I think Josh is super annoying because he's so melodramatic all the time.
