This year’s classes are wrapping up around Emory. Another school year under my belt, and I’m kinda sad to see it go. And yet. Before y’know it, it’ll be fall and dad will I’ll be lugging all my stuff back into the dorms.
My family went a little DIY this week. We took an old dresser that had been staking out a dark corner in the basement for the last, oh, half decade and repainted it for what is now its fourth reincarnation.
The before and after pic shows it: we swapped out our mirror for our TV. Now that’s a good deal.
Here’s the highlights:
Step 1: Dig out old dresser.
Step 2: Um, find that missing drawer.
Step 3: Clean drawers.
Step 4: Take a lunch break.
Step 5: Take the dog out for a walk.
Step 6: Paint drawers.
We repainted the white frame, and went with a warm beige color on the drawers to go with that white.
And I don’t mean crazy-fun-so-many-random-things-happened. I mean, so many tests, midterms, projects, and papers piled into five days, it made me feel crazy.
Let me tell you, I wasn’t too crazy about it.
Went to the High Museum on Saturday because general admission for college students is only $5 this month (and this month only! promotion/good hype/plug). We were headin’ there to see the Da Vinci exhibition (a no-photo exhibit).
The artwork was amazing. Included were tons of da Vinci’s pieces and journal pages, as well as artwork by his teachers and some sculptures by one of his students, Giovanni Francesco Rustici. My favorite display was The Battle of Anghiari.
Back on campus, noticed that while my head had been buried in books and papers all week, something had changed.Something was different about the place.
The leaves were beginning to change colors for autumn.
Now there’s something worth going crazy for.
