I finally finished the last of the essays earlier this afternoon, and they're all handed in! Oh, the feeling of not having a deadline looming over me. (On that note, I'm amazed at some of those here who are participating in National Novel Writing Month and pulling off over 2,000 words a day.)

Having written over 7,000 words in all, I feel that I can't make myself write anymore. )

Today is...yard-sale day. The front yard has been filled with complete strangers since 7:30 AM, and I still have to go to work at 3:00. Even so, we've apparently sold a lot of things, which is all the better for us, right? I folded seventeen cranes, four luna moths, and two tigerwing butterflies to sell, both to get some more money for textbooks and to note the anniversary of the bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. (The moths and the butterflies are there as a technical accomplishment, since they were designed by the astounding Michael G. LaFosse. Hopefully I'll be able to take pictures, should they not sell by the end of the day.)

On August 9 64 years ago, the second atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. )

On a much lighter note, I finished the costume design. )
