Hermit Style.

No, I'm not going to talk about the style choices of certain hermits (whoever they may be). I'm just realizing that aside from the occasional outing with my guy, my friends and on the VERY rare occasion, my family, I'm basically a hermit. It's really not intentional. I am a very busy woman who works on her projects at home. So I am home ALOT except for when I am working in studio, of course.

It's lonely, Hermit Life. I live alone with my dog, Spencer. He's not much of a conversationalist and he certainly doesn't give me any creative input on any of the designs I'm currently working on. So I do tend to get a touch stir crazy at times. And don't get me started on the paranoia when I've had absolutely no contact from anyone. I start to think that everyone is against me and that they all hate me. I think up conspiracy theories, betrayal scenarios, and even visions of mutiny start to invade my overloaded imagination. All while working on AutoCAD or Rhino Drawings such as this:

Well, that's a Rhino Drawing, but you get the idea...

Anyway, I find myself home alone now, working on yet another project. My final project actually for the summer studio I am DETERMINED to get an A in. Oh yes... the A will be mine... and I'm hoping the schizo part of me doesn't interrupt my creative flow (yeah, I said it) so that I can try to go to bed at a decent hour. I'm hoping around 2 or 3 a.m. That's decent, yes???

At some point today I need to make a crappy physical sketch model. But for now, I sit here alone in front of my computer working in CAD and wishing I could spend more time blogging and working on my book (yes... a BOOK!).

I'll ask Spencer his opinion on what I've done so far but I have a feeling he'll probably just look up at me and then go back to sleep. Silent. As usual.

Freakin' dog.


  1. I am the king of conspiracy theories. I've recently been basing them all on body language. Crazy!

    So what is your book going to be about? I'd say you could do my biography, but Cormack McCarthy has already expressed great interest. He may let you co-write, we'll see.

  2. Seven down, two(?) more to go! Are you going to tell us how your final went? Surely that merits a post! :)
