Chrissy: I got the ring!

But not really, of course
At BYU there is this ridiculous pressure to be in a relationship.
Although its not always spoken, it seems to weigh heavily in the atmosphere.
And sometimes I get a little overwhelmed by it.
But then my amazing roomies from Delaware tell me, "Girl, you are a strong independent black woman. And you do not need a man. WWOMJD. What would Opra Winfrey, Michelle Obama, and Jada Pinkett Smith do?"
And then I'm ok :)
As a joke I always carry a fake wedding ring I bought a long time ago from Claire's in my coat pocket. So that if some creeper guy, who also feels the pressure to get married, comes and hits on me I can slip it on and flash it in his direction.
Oh the cleverness of me!

Chrissy: Cleaning.

1. New Moon at midnight= no sleep.
2. Cleaning out a Jr. High's costume room for 2 hours= drowsiness and slight irritation.
3. Cleaning my dorm for 4 hours= insanity and anger.

cleaning. does. not. make. me. happy.

Chrissy: oh the things we learn.

I learn so many things at college.
Mom and Dad. Don't worry. You're money is not going to waste.

Some great lesson I learned today were:
1. It is relatively easy to fall asleep while sitting up. Especially during mythology. If you neck starts to kink just switch sides.
2. While using public bathrooms (which I try to do often because 6 girls in one apartment goes through at least one roll of toilet paper a day. And toilet paper is expensive people!!!!) I unconsciously almost always choose the 2nd stall closest to the door.

The End.

Chrissy: I am sorry.

I must apologize for the lack of updates.
And especially for the fact that my last two post didn't have any drawings!
My classes all of sudden have gotten insane.
And its got me super stressed and a little blue (hence the blue picture).
I have lots of things I want to post!
Lots of things in the works.
Including a little cheap animation deal about my hair.
So be patient with me!

Chrissy: Mah Hur (my hair)

My hair is getting ridiculous.
So much so that I'm taking on a whole project dedicated to the unruliness of it.
What should I do?!
I really don't want to cut it because of my goal.
I don't know how much more frizzy insanity I can stand!
Also, I feel slightly pressured to get a more indy artistic looking do.
To those who don't want me to cut my hair speak up soon!
I need help!

Chrissy: Halloween...

Ah! Halloween, how I love you!
Rachel and I were Greek Muses.
Goddesses of the Arts and Proclaimers of Heros.
Notice how elegantly we wrapped ourselves in our bed sheets, haha
Being a Muse-like (finally an excuse for my Greek lookin nose.)
Happy Muse
My Muse sister, me, Greaser Rachel M., and German Ashley :)
My intense, asian inspired (Jon!) pumpkin.

Dragon, Mulan, a few of my many designs and carving tools.
Broken carving tool because my designs are so intense.

Chrissy: On Winter.

There are many who hate winter.
I actually like it.
I have a pretty high tolerance of cold (most of the time).
My only problem with winter is the fact that my dorm room is FREEZING when it snows.
And I don't like to be cold when I sleep.
Who does?
So, I know you all are thinking, "Oh my goodness! How does she stay warm at night?"
I'll show you.
Below you see me in my summer pajamas.
Then you see all the articles of clothing I put on before I go to bed during the winter.
A hat. A scarf. A jacket (over my shirt). Sweats. Long socks. And a water bottle full of hot water.
After this I climb into bed where I get under a fleece blanket, then a thick quilt, and finally my bead spread.
Sometimes this works.
Sometimes I'm still cold.
Such is life.
