Early Summer Updates

Hello everyone! I'm happy that with finals, AP tests and graduation over now I finally have the time to update. The monthly posts will be up shortly as well ♥ I'll start off with a quick recap of what has been going on in my life, mostly in photos.

Quick notes:
  • I graduated high school and enrolled in college! Whoo!
  • I got a job with two of my friends to paint a mural for a business this summer ($$$)
  • I took photos for our student charity fashion show 
  • I painted a commission for one of my teachers of Ronald Reagan. That was fun.
  • I designed a lot of the art for and was featured (a lot) in my school's literary/art magazine/book
  • After about a week of decent skin, i had a horrible breakout and I'm yet again on my crusade for decent/better skin (more in another post to come) 
  • I did a lot of online shopping (Ebay) hehe :)
  • My boyfriend is back from college and was accepted as a transfer student to the college he really wants to go to! ♥ I also get to spend a lot of time with him now ♥♥♥
  • I went to IKEA for the first time *A*
Now onto the pictures!
