I'm doing the best I can

I am an hour from a giant art history test and I've been studying and studying. I need to breath. Seth said something today that helped me alot, about not worrying so much about the grade, or being the best, or anything like that, but letting what happens happen, and doing my best.
I know that I can at least say that, that I'm trying the best I can.

After this test I will be on spring break, which means I'll have some more time to work on wedding stuff. I realized yesterday that I need to simplify some of my ideas or visions of the wedding. I need to reexamine why and what we want to have included in the reception. It's hard not to get caught up in what wedding culture and The Knot says we need to have. This simplification has made that upcoming day seem a bit more clear. I am so excited.

On this subject of simplifying and trying, artwork has been another area in which I need to relax and stop worrying about being "good" or whatever, and instead, learn.

Here are some of my paintings, which i feel are sucessful if only because I am discovering how I paint. I think I really love painting.
