Fa la la la la, already?

I can't believe it's December!! The good thing is, I've already ordered most of the Christmas gifts for my friends online and all I have left to do is shop for a few people and my family. I've been super busy with school as the semester winds down and I even went on an internship interview! The projects that I have to complete in the next two weeks consist of a 2 page joke comic, a stencil of Christopher Walken, a colored set design for my comic 20 Fingerprints, and of course work on 20 Fingerprints. I'm on page 9 now but I still feel like I should be working faster. I'm also working on a 7 page comic with Vanessa about twin girls in a surreal Japanese landscape. There's also a twist, but I can't tell you that!

Work has been fine, I was promoted and promptly transferred, and then the store that I'm at now got a new manager who doesn't seem to understand that school comes first. Many of the coworkers that I have made friends with are already looking for new jobs. A cool note though, the one that I'm at is the first Ricky's that was ever made!

Today I started Isagenix, a meal replacement system. Vanessa's mother set me up on the program, and I'm feeling pretty good so far. I gained 30 pounds since transferring to the School of Visual Arts which I hope to lose. I hope to surprise my family with at least a little bit of weight loss when I get home for Christmas. Speaking of, I will be flying to Buffalo on the 21st!
