Still in Santa Fe




One of the only things I don't like about Carleton are these final two weeks of summer break. My friends Mara and Matej just left town to go back to school, which leaves me with one friend in town. And the only reason she's still here is because her boyfriend paid to move her flight over a few days more. I'm already consumed by loneliness. Well, not really. But I know that by the end of the week, I'm going to be really bored. Maybe that will help me with this whole art block thing.
Yes, that's right. Instead of exploding art like a Mimbulus Mimbletonia, I'm imploding it like a...well, I don't know. Whatever the opposite of a Mimbulus Mimbletonia is. But I can't seem to make anything creative lately. It's a little scary, since this whole study abroad trip is focusing on making art. What will happen if I get there and it's my turn to make something, and I can't think of anything? Will I get in trouble? Will they just make me make something stupid? Will I be caned? I don't know. And what if I don't get in trouble? Will I just end up not making any art at all? That would make the whole trip kind of pointless, wouldn't it? We'll find out. I plan on making a very short documentary soon about the employees of CCA (the place that I work), and I've been thinking of making a few music videos and such, but nothing really great. I guess I just kind of feel like everyone has already done everything, and everytime I see someone still come up with something new and original, I feel shot down. But I'm going to stop before this blog turns into some kind of horrible online diary and some sketchy 14 year old emo guy finds it and starts writing to me about how he knows my pain.

The opposite of an exploding Mimbulus Mimbletonia is obviously an imploding Ronald Weasley.

Oh, and if they don't cane you, I will. I know how you like those long, hard, erect objects.
