May 26th, 2011: McDonalds, Coffee, And Drawing.

    So I went to TN to visit my lovely friend from waay back during my model horse playing days. :) I had a blast as I always do- complete with anime, Opry Mills, an introduction to Firefly and Dr. Who and Dance Dance Revolution, and lots of shopping and coffee and talking in between.
    We went to McDonald's one day for lunch, and we drew each other while I drank coffee. It was really fun actually.
    Here's is Monica's drawing of myself:

And here is my drawing of Monica:

   I think it is interesting how the two contrast. I am definitely the more quick and rough sketcher here, and she is more deliberate and refined and just more patient, as I should learn to be. Ugh, I had her mouth almost perfect... and then I went and messed it up when I realized I had to erase and shift her whole face. Anyway, we will have to do this again! 
    I also sketched the mouse after I finished Monica, and she wanted me to sit still so she could draw my profile. 

    Oh and please say a quick prayer for me: I just found a scholarship due on the 31st, and I have to write the essay for it TOMORROW, and I have no idea what I am going to write about. It is for the American Chesterton Society... and so it has to be Chestertonish. Sigh, I am having difficulty finding a way to go to art school this Fall, and this scholarship could really make all the difference- I just wish I had found it sooner! I write about something that has to do with art, only I have no idea just what exactly. Oh well. Maybe my angel will do it for me!
"Idealism is only considering everything in its practical essence." -G.K. Chesterton 

Hehe, I almost feel like saying "St. GKC, pray for me." I mean, he's pretty much the pope after Tolkien isn't he?  Totally kidding of course. Or am I? Hmm.... 


  1. Well, some people *are* suggesting that a cause for his canonization be opened! I don't know that he was a saint in that sense, but I don't believe that there's many authors to compare with the sense of humility and charity in his books.

  2. I think so too! I love his attitude. But I've not read much about him yet, so I don't know much about his personal life I have to say. Although, I intend to fix that soon hopefully! :)
