Tick Tock(Tik Tok?)

I have to admit it's very difficult to dress exciting(and excitingly) when it's clearly below freezing. I have to wear so many layers that the only body parts you see that show skin are around my eyes. So, there's the reason to why I've been dressing like a sack of clothes all piled onto one person. The picture above is on the day I had a ride so you can see my face.
Basically all I've been doing lately is school school school because midterms are coming up. On Saturdays though I am now taking a painting class at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. I'm an amateur at the class and I'm just there to have fun. I actually got motivated to take one after reading an essay in Fiske's Real College Essays That Work. Kind of corny right?

To balance my lack of outfit pictures this week(and last week) I'm presenting you with my photos I took in my Renaissance photography class at school. We are making abstract photographs with ice and food coloring and I got some cool results. I got food coloring all over my hands that won't come off. Just in case you guys ever play with food coloring, wear gloves! I also have paint on me too..so pretty much I'm my own canvas or something.. Anyways, back to the photos....I actually did not photoshop them yet, but here are two samples:

I like your outfit! The boots and jacket are really cute. You're right, it is fun layering in the winter! Those ice photos are so neat, and I like the one in the art gallery to!

I think we own the same gap sweater! I'm officially obsessed with it, I find a way to throw it on daily.
What a great hobby, learning how to paint in a museum, I wish I could do something like that. Sounds fancy, keep posting up your work!
