It's because I want to keep my friends.

Dear Patrick,
Life update? Life update for you in ten or less.

1. I intend to graduate from college on May 8th, 2010.
2. I'm getting my hair cut later in the month of May.
3. I'm planning my life around said haircut and moving to Chicago soon after.
4. I'm moving to Chicago to live with Brune and Philio Saoler of the Pepsi Corporation for the summer.
In other words, Phil got an internship with Pepsi in Chicago. Brooke said, "Move with us!". I said, "Yes. I will do that."
5. I still have close to one billion prints to make before May 8th.
6. I'm starving. So starving.
7. It is snowing in Logan today. I hate.
8. I reopened my Facebook account. We'll see if it lasts longer than two weeks this time.
9. I've run out of things to say.

Love,
Adrienne

It's because I'm really going to graduate this time.

Dear Patrick,
I'm happy every single day because I have friends who do things like this for me:Scotty works for Coke and hooked me up with a 24 pack I needed for a thank you gift. Naturally, he didn't want my roommates to take it before I got to it. I've been smiling for an hour. People like Scotty make me sad to leave Logan. But Chicago is calling my name. And I have to go.
So happy,
Adrienne.

It's because this plus this equals Saturday morning.

Dear Patrick,
Do you like running around and buying neat things? I bet you do. Good news, there's this.

Love, Adrienne

It's because sleep is for the birds. And for babies.

Dear Patrick,
I feel shorter today than most days. And I'm pretty sure somewhere in the past week, a small group of people have played the "is that a boy or a girl?" game about me. And for that matter, they probably also played the "is it actually alive or a zombie?" game about me, too. At this point, I probably can't answer the latter question either.

It's crunch time. It's oatmeal-brain time. It's you-can-sleep-when-you're-dead time. The BFA show goes up Saturday at 9am and if I go home between now and then, it will be cause for celebration. Oh yeah, remember how I'm graduating? What is that? I don't know how to graduate. I only know how to go to school. That's it. I don't know how to sleep. I don't know how to keep my hands clean. I still haven't gotten past a third grade reading level. And eating anything nutritious is probably something I'll never get a hang of. So what am I even supposed to do after I graduate? I'll probably end up dinking around until I get tired and go back to school. We all know I can only function in an academic setting. I mean, let's talk about what happens when I'm not in school. I work at Utah Lake and wear Carhartt shorts. I deliver pizza and memorize the countries of the world in order of the continents. I sell corn from the side of the road. Things are not okay when I am not in school. Oh speaking of school, come to my BFA show opening. It's Friday the 23rd from 6-8 pm in the Twain Tippetts Gallery at the Utah State University. I'm currently working on a book that may help the world be a finer place to live in. You'll see. Oh guess what I found! This:I believe that was from another week of this sort but a year or two ago. Glad I took it. Glad I found it. Glad I could share it.

On that note,
Adrienne

It's because tonight I'm going to pray to wake up as a clone of this woman.

Dear Patrick,
Last week I went to Philadelphia. It was sogoodyummy. More on that later. Right now we have more important things to discuss. I've been meaning to post inspirations I come across for a while I think we'll start here. With the lovely Lilli Carre. Brooke and I stumbled across her brilliance today. She made this with her hands. I want to kiss her feet.
