...here's what happens...
I wake up after not sleeping, take my cold meds...start feelin' awesome, like, 'Hey, I am kickin' this cold's BUTT!' Then I run around and do a bunch of stuff...get exhausted, run out of steam, realize that the cold is still there...and it won't let me sleep...
This happened to me yesterday...by the time I made it back home I was feeling pretty drained. I did manage to watch some of the Oscars after I napped, and even started a few fashion illustrations of a few of my favorite looks from the red carpet...I hope to finish these up sometime this week, maybe add some embellishments...
Today...it didn't happen. Instead of kind of perking up a little after taking some cold medicine I had a raging sinus headache...which doesn't really go well with teaching classes of forty high school kids...even if they are REALLY trying hard to keep their voices down.
For my daily piece...I just kept going back to the image of Lupita Nyong'o in that pearl Calvin Klein gown. It was amazing- SHE was amazing. So...I abadoned Jewel and her lovely 'fro for 'Lula'...my version of Lupita in that gown last night. I figure it still goes with the series...I kept the color yellow/black color scheme...kept the embellishment...and even kept the natural hair, just went with a different 'do.
...and that's it. I think I am going to bed. At 8pm. Totally serious...night ya'll!
