In Need of an Update

You would think that with an entire Summer I would've at least posted once. Nope.
Summer is almost gone and I guess I have been busy!

Sweetmint Movie Update:
We are anxiously awaiting the news whether or not Sweetmint has been accepted into the 2010 Milwaukee Film Festival. The movie is just about complete, although I have heard that Christian has been editing the sound some more. Here is the link to the new website: Sweetmint. It features the trailer, the blog, and has a complete cast list. How exciting!

Job Update:
I have been working at Office Max lately(since June) and it is working out pretty well. I can't say it's my dream job, but it isn't so bad as retail jobs go. I will be trained in the Impress(graphic design/printing) department hopefully next week. *crosses fingers*

Obsessions Update:
Another trend I have found myself being sucked into lately is Steampunk. If you are unfamiliar with Steampunk it is a fashion trend that includes a mostly Victorian style of dress with added futuristic gadgets, gizmos, and goggles! Basicially as they eloquently say on "It is as if the future had existed in the past". It is a lot of fun! I have already ordered some brass buttons, and clock parts, and chains to begin making jewelry. If you go to and search 'steampunk' there are tons of pages filled with people selling jewlery, clothing, and accessories devoted to Steampunk. There is a Steampunk ball August 26th downtown Milwaukee that (I hope I asked off of work in time for) I am getting ready to attend. It should be awesome! I found a dress at Goodwill that should work and also am starting to design some jewlery and goggles. really helped with diy tutorials and videos.

I will post pictures of the results later! For now enjoy the videos and check out the Steampunk Ball event on facebook!

Posting ladeda

Hey all! The end of the semester is getting crazy...

My last Choir Concert at WLC is tonight at 8pm. It will be amazing. We are singing most of the selections from Carmina Burana. If you think you haven't heard of it, you have. Look up "Oh Fortuna" on Youtube. You will go: "oh yea!"


More updates later.

Hair Cut

Hey all, I got a haircut. It was just time. I had been growing it out for awhile, trying to see if long hair was "me". I can see now that I am meant to have short, cute, and awesome hair. Not to mention the place where I got me haircut.

Mirror Mirror Hair Salon in St.Francis, WI is a great place to get a haircut. The owner, Deano, has studied in Europe and China to learn every type of hair. He has been cutting hair for 15 years and does an amazing job. He told me tips and facts about my type of hair that I had not heard before. I had been damaging my hair for years without even knowing it!

The atmosphere at Mirror Mirror is unlike any hair salon I have been to. The overall effect is Gothic, but not in a creepy way. More like the class and darkness of Edgar Allan Poe that is still accessible to people from everywhere. Tall, dark framed mirrors draped with red cloth and chandeliers decorate the entire space. If you are waiting, the literature decorating the coffee table included anything from fashion magazines to Haunted Places in Wisconsin books.

A truly unique and amazing experience all around. I will going here from now on!

Almost another break

I have been pretty lax at updating this thing, but it has been pretty busy around the Walker household. We are in the process of moving the entire contents of our apartment into our new "apartment" at Mom and Dad's house. Uncle Lee helped us move furniture, boxes, and other large items last weekend. Now we just have a few more big items, boxes, clothes, and lots and lots of cleaning to do.

Our new rooms are pretty awesome. Dad was nice enough to combine the two rooms with a pocket door in the middle.

Today is the last day of school until next Wednesday. I am so happy! I love that I am privileged enough to go to school and earn my degree, but I have been having trouble finding the motivation for anything lately. Talking to others on campus, I am not alone!

Hmm...what a boring post.

I will talk about Grandpa. He is doing a bit better. He is going to be in a nursing home(hopefully by Friday) because the recent home he is in will not be covered by their insurance. Pray for him, ok? He is still a bit confused and needs all the prayers and love we can give him.

Home Again

Happy St.Patty's Day!

I got back from choir tour on Sunday around 6:30PM. It was a long almost 10 hour bus ride from Virginia.

Tour was great! I have never been that far East before and it was amazing to see our American history in person. I will have up pictures later this week/weekend depending on time!

It is great to be back. Except for the homework....

Choir Tour 2010 Day One

It was a long trip, but we are finally here in Findlay, Ohio. The concert went extremely well, but we are so tired! I couldn't sleep very good the night before because I was having nightmares. Luke and I stayed up until 1:30ish watching Robot Chicken Star Wars. It helped scare the bad things away!

Tomorrow we are driving about 3ish hours to Cincinnati and then around a 7 hour trip to Knoxville, Tennessee.

It is going to be a long one, but it has been fun so far.

I miss Luke, but I think he can survive without me for 10 days, right? We shall see!

Have a good night!

I Just Noticed the Change

Wow. It's March? REALLY? That is amazing. This year is already flying by so fast. I cannot wait until school is over for the year. I love the feeling of passing all of my classes and being one step closer to graduation. It kinda stinks because if I wouldn't have taken a year (or so) off then I would be all done with school this Spring...oh well. Too late now!

Everyone have an awesome Spring!
