I think my blog needed a little touching up...nothing that a little original art can't fix! Matt's mother gave us a printer/scanner, which allowed me to scan one of my drawings.

Now that my residency is edging towards finalization (after an entire year!) I have begun the foot work for applying for Grad School. It's like a stress-inducing walk through memory lane...emailing my old professors and requesting my transcripts is triggering some feelings of anxiety, which was pretty much my mental state throughout my entire college career. Yeesh, what I am getting myself into?

On an unrelated note, I suddenly piqued an interest in reading the Wikipedia bios of old Hollywood actresses from the know, Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Judy Garland and the likes. Their stories made me realize how insanely driven and legitimately crazy these women were. I mean, they practically grew up in show biz. They worked their ass off, were plagued with vicious insecurities, struggled with self-worth and addictions and on top of it all had to sing and dance and look stunning throughout all of it. I'm convinced that modern actresses don't have to try half as hard as those women to attain such fame. Joan Crawford said herself "getting there is easy, staying there very difficult".

First real snowfall. The lockdown has commenced. From this day on, it's all long nights lit up by Christmas lights and the glow of open laptop monitors. Headphones on, head down, and feet buried under the snow. These are the song of the winter time.
