I've been admittedly neglecting working on the ole painting because
1) I've been busy
2) I've been frustrated (with it)
3) I've been itinerary planning
August is going to be crazy. Internship ends at the end of the week, and then my body will physically be traveling for thousands and thousands of miles, which I guess is good, seeing as how it's been a while since I've traveled (unless if to NJ or MA or MD or PA counts... I guess it's been a while since I've left this coast).
Going upstate to Potsdam mid-next week (probably Wednesday night-- like, a literal 9-hour bus ride, according to trailwaysny.com's bus schedule) to meet up with Colin.
Driving down to Cape Cod on Friday morning for the weekend.
Driving to Reading on Sunday.
Driving to NYC either Monday or Tuesday.
Then we have to PACK. Our flight to Israel is on Tuesday night, arrival in the Netherlands to spend a looovely day lay-overing on Wednesday early afternoon, arrival in Tel Aviv eeeeearly Thursday morning (like, 2:30AM).
From there we've planned one night in Tel Aviv (and when I say "we've", I mean "I've," haha-- but it's totally mutually beneficial, having me plan everything. I enjoy the HELL out of planning, and Colin hates planning anything). Then 2 nights in Eilat. 3 nights in Masada (with day trip to the Dead Sean/Ein Gedi). 4 nights in Jerusalem. 1 more night in Tel Aviv, and flight back late the next day.
Get back on the same day as I flew out, thanks to the magic of time-zones. Recover for a day. Go to first day of fall classes the next morning!
This thing miiiight be on hold for a while, but here's how it's been progressing:
