I don't even know what my weekends are anymore now that I have AP English on Saturday mornings which means no going out on Fridays which could possibly mean no going out ever because I have so much art homework all the time (and maths to study for because I'm really pushing for all As this year) and then there's pilates on Sunday mornings (ohmyyygod, don't go there) and all my friends wanna kick until the AMs and I just can't anymore, guys, I'm sorrryyyy.
- OK, crisis over. -
Anyway, I think I'm going to dedicate a piggy bank to save money to buy more of these beautifully cut and shaped Topshop Joni jeans. They are the epitomy of everything blue jeans have ever been said/sold to be but better. What sucks, though, is that I've lost a teensy bit of weight (which is usually a whoohoo) but now they're folding and getting a little saggy and it hurts because I'll never find another love like this.
Last Thursday we went on a trip to the CBD to visit the Standard Bank Gallery and the Goodman Gallery to see and be assimilated by Walter Oltmann and Gabrielle Goliath. They're both such amazing artists and it was all parts chilling, inspiring and just plain amazing to see their works. Right now they're in my top five South African artists and I can't wait to see more of Gabriel Goliath's work.
I should be writing an A++ review on them right now for tomorrow but instead I'm playing around with my MS Paint, sitting in front of the fan, watching 7th Heaven reruns and praying for some cheese sandwiches and juice.
