chocolate cake and paintings

I finished the painting I made for Rachel and I’m pretty excited about it! It took me a while because I didn’t know what to add or what needed to be changed, so I kept stopping. I was painting it with toothpicks, too. Partially because I have no supplies, and also because it’s super small and I don’t think I’m steady enough with a brush of that size. It’s cool when you paint on wood because the paint stands up a bit, and you can feel the texture when you run your fingers across it.
Thank you to Ebony Soulstress for giving me the idea to paint the boat 🙂 It’s my first painting, so I’m satisfied with how it turned out. I hope she likes loves it.

And now I’m eating chocolate cake and watching Mexico slaughter the US. Not really, but our defense needs to get its act together. I swear last year I was such a sucker for fruity candy. This year I’m all about chocolate. I don’t know what happened, but I’m completely obsessed. And every time I watch soccer I want to play. I haven’t played since before spring break… it’s way too hot outside :/

Here it is, almost 11pm and I’m already sleepy. I think I’ve always been sleepy. In high school I remember napping when I got home from school some days. Shopping is tiring. Maybe that’s today’s reason for my exhaustion. Also because I got home from the engagement party close to 3am last night and had to wake up early for Samirah‘s dress fitting early this morning.

Anyway, I’m gonna go pray and then read Harry Potter and be sad about how the tickets for the midnight premiere are already ALL SOLD OUT. I had no clue they even went on sale yet :/ There goes my plans for dressing up and lining up.
