I just switched out of one class on M/W and into the Romantic Literature on Tuesday nights. It makes my Tuesdays crazy, (the classes are doubling up at the end because there is like 15 minutes between the two) but my Mondays and Wednesdays look amazing. I just wasn’t feeling my Film and Literature class. I hated my last one so….

I think I may be teetering right on the line of having overcommitted myself this year… Yeep.
But here’s a little breakdown of what’s coming up for me/the Beastlies:
October 19: I’ll have a piece in the Story Time show. That’s a local one, and it should be a super adorable show. I’ll post some previews of my piece soon.
November 9-10: Designer Con in Pasadena! That’s a biggie, and I didn’t actually think I was going to have a table this year. But I just found out that I will! Now I have about a month to make enough stuff to fill it. Yiiiiiiikes….
November 16 (through the end of the year): I’ll have some small pieces in a show at one of our favorite places: Leanna Lin’s Wonderland. The show is called “Through the Looking Glass,” so if you’re a fan of work inspired by Lewis Carroll (I KNOW SOME OF YOU ARE), then this will be a good show to attend. Everything in this show is designed to be in a very affordable range, so… holiday gift… just sayin’.
December 14: I will have some small pieces in a show called Gift Wrapped in the Clutter Gallery in New York! I love Clutter Magazine, so I’m very excited about this one. I wish I could actually go to it, but it’s not going to work out. If you can go, take pictures for me!
There’s more exciting stuff in 2014, but let’s leave it at this for now. Rest assured I will continue to mention and plug these as they approach. :)
Oregon’s Schedule Released for 2013 Season - features non conference games with Tennessee and Nevada. Conference Schedule features Civil War at Autzen.
Aug. 31 Nicholls State Sep. 7 @Nevada Sep. 14 Tennessee Sep. 28 California Oct. 5 @Colorado Oct. 12 @Washington Oct. 19 Washington State Oct. 26 UCLA Nov. 7 @Stanford Nov. 16 Utah Nov. 23 @Arizona Nov. 29 Oregon State
Only once in 2013 will Autzen host games on back to back weekends (Oct 19/26). The month of September will also not have games every weekend as in years past. Oregon starts out their season with Nicholls State, which wrapped up it’s season in 2012 by allowing 70 points to Oregon State. I’m not sure they are looking forward to Autzen. Oregon then goes on the road for a rare non conference game at Nevada, who have hired ex Texas A & M assistant Brain Polian as their new head coach. An SEC team will come to Autzen for the first time in….well..forever when Tennessee visits on September 14th.
Once we enter conference play, after a bye week there are several games that stand out and one requires a big circle…that being the trip to Stanford on November 7th. With the way 2012 ended for some of these teams, the 2013 Ducks should be the favorite in a lot of these contests.
Two others to watch. Washington and Arizona.
The one question I have is who will be Oregon’s starting running back in 2013 - how long will it take for incoming freshman Thomas Tyner to make is mark as a Duck?
As per the cricket schedule announced for Champions Trophy 2013, it will begin on Thursday June 6, 2013 in England. It is an international tournament which will be organized by England. It consists of 15 ODI matches, hosted…
