Does the world even know it's on fire?

I've taken up painting.

Okay, so really, I've been painting for a grand total of 2 days. But I'm having fun with it, even though I'm clearly no Picasso.

I have absolutely no idea what I'll do with my finished works. They aren't good enough to sell, and I'm not sure I want 'practice-stage' paintings on the walls. But we'll see, I suppose.

I'm also really angry about the trip to D.C this weekend-- we were told originally that we'd have a day to hang out on our own and see the sights, but now it seems like the entire two days are completely micromanaged for us. That, and the American History wing of the Smithsonian (where I desperately wanted to go-- Mister Roger's sweater is on display there!) is CLOSED for renovations and will reopen a grand total of NINETEEN DAYS after I depart.

I swear, if there's a God, he has a fucking sense of humor and he's LAUGHING HIS ASS OFF at my misfortune.
