State Appeals Court Finds Florida's Law Banning Adoptions by Gays and Lesbians Unconstitutional
Also, another versions here
Article from The American Civil Liberties Union

I'm not a very well informed person - by choice, I assure you, but this is cool. I wrote a paper on transgender/transexual rights in my second year of college and I was a bit more up to date on this stuff. It's nice to know that change is happening and progress is being made.

Congrats, Florida and everyone who's affected by this.

It's too late to go print my promotional posters for class in the morning. BUT I've discovered that my HP Printer will do the job fine. I may have to tile one of them, but that's perfectly acceptable. It saves me so much time and stress. The lab hours for the design lab are only 9-11 tonight, so there is a good chance I wouldn't get to print anyway if there are other students in there. Plus the gas it takes to get out there is horrendous. Now I can procrastinate as late as I want to and still print them myself. And I have my rice pudding with me. XD

I've done it before, but it's been a while. I'm going to try to survive the next 10+ hours on TWO hours of sleep (maybe less). The wedding is this weekend, a project is due in the next... hour, and (THANK GOD), I went to finish my painting last night and a fellow student informed me that's not due until tuesday, and not tomorrow! So I'll try to stay awake for class, go buy a dress for the rehearsal dinner and then come home and CRASH.

We're back and in one piece. White Russian's own me, as do Bloody Mary's (and Pepto). I'm tired as shit and just busy, busy, thinking about the wedding next weekend. Plus school project and stuff that are due. I've got loads to do in graphic design and my painting is due thursday. I forgot to go to class last thursday so I hope my honey hasn't... umm, soured or whatever it is that honey does when it's been left out too long. ^^

OH, and the new billboards are up for the store I work for! I did the initial design and then my bosslady sent them to our ad people and they fiddled with them a bit. It didn't change very much. I'm super happy though. Can you image seeing something you made on you computer on a huge ass billboard? It's crazy. XD

Me? I'm anxious in general. I'm switching back to contact lens, 'cause I just look ridiculous in my thick glasses. ^^ All I needed was a a break from contacts for a while (and I didn't have any money to buy anymore). I went to the doctor and I'm trying to get my body back in order. The anemia is loads better. I've got a follow-up in three months so hopefully my levels will be replenished by then. The pharmacist said that iron takes a while to build back up, especially is your a woman who is continually losing it. Which is why I'm now on a three-month bc. Simply, I need to keep all the blood I've got. Ah, the wonders of being a woman.

The aftertaste of my Iron Pills tastes like old cherrios. It's quite disgusting. Yay for anemia!
And I give you my mood and my music. It's all very simple, really.

Why do guys have awesome shoes with no female equivalent? I think it's unfair that a style of shoe (this style in particular) should be limited to the male sex. I also think they're bad-ass, but they're for men. Where's the love for the ladies?

No Master of this Mind
In and out of control, always, never, of you, of me
And this is not the end, downhill, downhill from now on
You're not sayin' anything that makes sense
No words, no conversation, no imagination anymore, anymore
Unsaved, unsure, unafraid but so, so afraid of everything
Tomorrow will be the same as yesterday, the same as ever
The same as five minutes from now and we haven't changed
Still in and out of control, someone else pushing my buttons
Someone else is the Master of my Mind.

Guys, I can't even begin to tell you how bad this week has been. )

Edit: And no, I cannot decide what layout to use. Though, the one right now is pretty cool. I think I'll keep it.

I'm too depressed to even think about putting this under a cut. DEAL.

I finally bought me some Puma sneakers. *fistpump* I've been wanting some since, well, forever. And these were only $33!

The sun is bright and fluttering 'neath the great oaks of my home
I wander, chase and dizzy myself in the daytime, soaking up the air

Hey guys. I'm gonna be really swamped this month because of school. But I always make time for my livejournal. <3 If you're interested in seeing my schoolwork, you can watch my photostream on Flickr. I'm Jessica1660 there and you can see my current and some past work I've done.

Cheers! XD

Who just bought the last Sherlock Holmes Literal Writer's Block: Ruyu did. Ha. I'm stupidly happy.

Summer class starts tomorrow. I'm excited/nervous as usual, but I've missed working on school stuff (minus art history!). It's a month long class, 4 hours, MTWTF, Ahhhhh! I've never had a class so long, the longest has probably been 2 hrs and 45mins for a studio class. But 4 hours... this will be a challenge on my concentration and determination - I foresee many cigarette breaks. >.<

On the bright site, I've been making pretty good money so I've splurged. I bought THIS duvet for my bed and the shams are in route. Also, Keep Calm and Carry On by the Ebury Press. Brilliant little book! And The Small Stakes: Music Posters by Jason Munn. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I knew and enjoyed almost every band he's designed posters for. I love this and think it's a awesome addition to my growing design library.

Yep, I think I'm ready for class. XD

Ooh. That's a tough one.

Likes: Patience, Politeness, Insightful
Dislikes: Pessimistic, bluntness, socially awkward

I'm known for my patience, especially where I work when I deal with older people and confused customers. I just grin and bear it, they can't help it if there are problems. Things slide right off my shoulders and I'm not easily offended or angered unless you really mean to be hateful. My mother taught me and my sister traditional southern manners, Yes ma'am, No ma'am, respect your elders and all that. You'd be surprised how many children these days are missing those qualities. I'd like to think I'm insightful considering that I'm an artist and whatnot. I'm extremely sympathetic and understanding. I can easily imagine myself in your shoes and the struggles you must be facing. It's not pity, it's a mutual understanding of the human condition and it's trials, misfortunes and difficulties.

Likewise, I'm a BIG pessimist. But I justify that by telling people that I do my best thinking under pressure. I'm sure I'll regret this habit when I'm actual working under a serious deadline. I'm reliable to a degree, but don't ask me to do a commission, chances are you'll never see it completed. >.< As I'm sure you've heard me say before, I'm a blunt person. And while you may not notice it here on LJ, my family, friends and coworkers do. I am not afraid to say NO, but I do so politely. I don't always say what I think, but when I do it's pretty straightforward. Indecisive people get on my nerves, like my sister.

As for being socially awkward... well I'm on Livejournal, aren't I? XD

We're back! We ended up staying the night at the beach house. The wind was wicked and I think I'm sunburnt/wind-burnt. My Mom, her best friend, Sam and myself went to Lulu's to eat and I bought my mom her Mother's Day dinner. We did some random shopping in which I spent way too much money and then we bummed it out at the beach house until the sun went down. I enjoyed it. I bring you pictures. Enjoy.

Some photos from the beach... )

Me and Sam are heading to the beach to see my mom while she's on vacation (she's been there a whole week!) It's a bit overcast right now, but it should clear up to be a nice day. I hope everyone has a nice weekend! XD
