My Kid Could Paint That...

I watched an amazing documentary last night titled "My Kid Could Paint That." I thought it was just going to be this simple little story about a four-year-old abstract painting genius, but it was way more brilliant than that. Questions about what is modern art, child fame, greed, lying, scams, relationships...whew...this just went everywhere. I urge everyone to watch it...completely fascinating. I was actually crying at the end.
You can check out www.marlaolmstead.com , yes a six-year-old has a website, and see what you think of the artwork.

The Past Two Weeks

In the past two weeks I have:

*graduated (minus a thesis still in progress)
*been confirmed in the Catholic church
*finished all of my undergrad classes with sorta flying colors
*read 3 books
*started studying for the MCAT
*have had MCAT-anxiety nightmares every night
*been rejected by a boy
*trudged through snow and sweated through the sunshine

All in all, everything just feels so unsettled right now. Hopefully in a few more weeks everything will feel a little more settled and I will start enjoying summer. I am enjoying my new camera...check out this cool picture I took of a cabbage at Red Butte.
