Yesterday Dave & I carved pumpkins. He did the Alkaline Trio logo & I did an owl (obviously)
It was pretty time consuming. He had never carved a pumpkin before (for as long as he could remember when he was a kid his dad would do it for him & his brothers)
So, it took him about half an hour to draw on the design and he looked so cute and defeated when it turned out all lopsided and crooked.
I erased it with bathroom cleaner and drew it again for him.
We saved the pumpkin seeds, sprinkled seasoning salt & roasted them (yum!)
Half way through carving I started feeling sick again. My face was getting all stuffed up.
Right before bed I had some cough medicine and some tylonel…but low and behold in the middle of the night
my cold was back in full force. I woke up at least 3 times not being able to breathe properly
and my nose so stuffed to the point I couldn’t blow it.
I’m home again sick from school today. I’m really going to try and catch up on sleep and fight his.
I’m fairly certain almost everyone is sick right now, so I don’t feel too alone!
Besides, sometimes staying in bed, eating lentil soup & watching cartoons is a good thing.

Since I’m sick and working lots, I had to give up my mumford & sons ticket for this saturday so I can work on typography.
I’m kind of bummed out but at the same time not so much.
Part of me didn’t really feel like going out and being social. Is it awful I’m somewhat looking forward to spending saturday night at home?
I know I’ll probably get quite a bit done (I did 11 more pages of concept development for my new idea) so I’m not too stressed.

    That sucks. I hope you get better. And no, it’s not a bad thing to not do anything on the week end. I don’t think I’m going to be either. Other than playing video games and trying to get my brain thinking about creative ideas. I’m not a very good creative idea thinker. I’m trying to get that creative side going again. Not good at making decisions lol.

    Hopefully see you at school all better 🙂
