I just realised I didn’t post last week, I went from a short post, promising an elaboration that never happened, to taking a vacay (It’s a real word, it’s in the goddamn Oxford English Dictionary). But hey, I not only left the house last week, I left the county, aren’t you proud of me?
The Project Runway effort is still going strong, which I’m sure you were dying to know.
It may not be career advancing, but it’s a fairly all consuming hobby. As the GIF might suggest, I am on season 9, and at a point where Joshua is the only vaguely interesting person left in the show. When you watch them all at once the shows dramatic drop in quality (and dramatic rise in product placement) is painfully obvious, and I say this with season 11 still ahead of me. They cast a bunch of crazies who obviously won’t win, let them cause drama for the first 9/10 challenges, then leave you with people so relieved to be free of the crazy that they’re all boring and friendly. The exception being season 8 where they went ahead and gave the prize to the psycho #teammondo (actually, you know what, no. #teamandy, that guy got completely ignored in the whole Gretchen-gate debacle, despite his magnificent hair, that only got more glorious as the series went on). I might have to throw in a cycle of ANTM to make myself feel better about this.
In the world outside of reality TV I am working through some Code Academy in an effort to not go into my Masters degree blind. Coding is a little tedious but also very logical (well, duh) and I can see myself not hating it for the next 12 months, so that’s encouraging. Provided I can keep my “issues with authority” (read: inability to take direction from people I don’t like respect) in check, I have the potential to do really well in this thing.
I appear to have finally stopped the compulsive drawing/painting. Which I’m pretty happy about, it felt unhealthy to be knocking out 6 watercolours a day.
Afterthought: All this looking for pictures of his hair has revealed that Andy South is now Ari South. Her hair is still fantastic. It’s also revealed that I have four extra seasons to watch, I forgot All Stars existed. I don’t know how I feel about this.
