Hooker is just a job

This year has been unlike any other. When I took upon the new challenge of an art major I knew it would be different, but I didn't realize it would be so HARD. However, I have loved the new challenges it has presented and all of the crazy things I have learned. It is an entirely different world! I'm looking forward to a day when I can sleep as long as I want and do nothing for the rest of the day, but that certainly won't be happening until sometime after Wednesday. Wednesday marks the last day of my sculpture class and let me tell you I couldn't be more thrilled. I'm seriously lacking motivation in the 3 dimensional world and I'm just too much of a perfectionist to be working with materials that are so unforgiving. So I will be pleased to say "PEACE OUT" to 8 o'clock class in B66. I have more to say about that, but for now I have to go study for a written test (in art? what?), and bust out some decent sculptures.

Also, my parents have been so supportive of me and my crazy endeavors. I thought my dad would be appalled at my new choice of major, but he loves me. So, just for them I have created a new blog to show my stuff. They have literally seen nothing I've done this year. Now let's remember that these are pretty much all from Studio art classes so I'm not promising anything too fantastic. If you want to check it out here it is:

Lady Luck

First things first. I have some sort of Asian following on my Picasa web album as well as this. If anyone can translate the comment on my last post, I'd really appreciate it.

Second, I feel like I've already told everyone this, but it's just so fantastic I need to write it down. I have a gym membership at 24 hour fitness. However, for the past few months I've noticed that they haven't been taking money out of my account every month. Of course every time I think about it I'm not in the position to do anything and I just kept forgetting about it-that's what happens when you have money that you shouldn't. Had it been the other way around I would have done something immediately.

So yesterday in class my friend Sarah, who also goes to 24 hour, was telling me how she lost her debit card and so when she got a new one the payments didn't transfer over. The other day they stopped her when she came in and told her that her payments were late. I smiled and nodded as she told me this story, but inside a wave of panic struck. Remember that time last semester that I was an IDIOT FOOL and left my debit card in the atm? Turns out that I too have a new card, but who knew that the automatic payments would stop working, same account right? On the way home I began imagining the hundreds of dollars in late fees that I must owe to 24 hour.

I tried to work it out online but when I typed in my account information a little box popped up telling me that my membership had been TERMINATED. I called. I spoke to some man and explained the situation. He proceeded to tell me that they hadn't received payment from me since OCTOBER and my membership had been terminated then. My reply to him: "I just went to the gym on Friday". And by the way, I didn't have my card on Friday so the girl even typed in my name to look up my account...He then transferred me to another man. I explained the situation again, and told this man I would fight him because it was their fault. He told me just to sign up for a new account. What did this entail? Paying the first and last month plus a service fee. Altogether this amounted to less than what I clearly owed them for the last 4 months, but they didn't want to hear it.

I am now reminded of the time I went to the YMCA for two years in high school for free before they realized that I in fact was not old enough to be a member of Silver Sneakers. Thank you gyms of the U.S. for wanting me to use you for free.

Wanted: Life sponsor

I know everyone feels really bad for me. I have a difficult and boring life. So...

Who has 10 grand they want to give me to go to Jerusalem? I'll take check or cash.
