Dreaming in Technicolor


I've been working, working, working on my project for school. I wish I had a year to work on it; there's so much information I need to assess and so little time to do it. I've looked at so many magazines from the 1955 that I had started dreaming in technicolor. Now I've stepped back twenty years into the Depression and the ads reflect the times: black and white, eating 3 cubes of yeast a day to stay healthy, living on $25 a week and feeding a family of seven. My mood now matches. Evidently those ads are doing their job.

I can't begin to tell you how overwhelmed I am by school at this moment. My hours of sleep are shrinking daily. I'm an 11 pm to 5 am girl now. Oh, May, I can't wait for your arrival.

I'm 2.5 inches away from finishing February Lady. I only hope I can eek her out before the weather changes for the warmer. At this rate, I'll have time...one warm day, three cold ones, one warm day...

I'll be back soon with the weight of 1945 on my shoulders. Cheers!
