I can’t stop thinking about the scene in Revenge of the Sith when Anakin has his nightmare because he and Padmé are sharing a bed and honestly did they not realize that was risky?? like what if someone needed to speak with Padmé late in the night and walked in?? ‘sorry to wake you Senator but this matter is- OH MY GOODNESS MASTER SKYWALKER’
it must be so strange to come to DC and hear us talk about the metro. these are actual things I or someone I know have said:
“it’s single tracking again - apparently there was another fire at Metro center. I thought they were fixing this”
“25 minute waits are pretty normal. I mean, this is the red line.”
“kid in my class lives at college park, so both his metro stops are closed. he’s been driving to the orange line, but Monday he ended up having to evacuate at Roslyn bc of a fire. can not catch a break.”
“I mean, Cleveland Park flooded that one time and the escalators had a waterfall of water coming down them. why are there pipes up there anyways?”
“did you hear about the baby beaver that British tourist found at Cleveland Park?” “was that when friendship heights had that electrical fire?” “before I think. the video is so cute.”
“it was pretty obnoxious that they had to shut down the entire system for a day on such short notice, but it was probably for the best. the sparking wire stories were getting ridiculous.”
“had to wait an hour and a half to get a train to go one stop. gallery place man.”
“Mimi couldn’t make this meeting because she’s had metro trouble. think she’s still down there actually.”
“does it ever worry you that this giant stone entrance is being held up by scaffolding?” “only when I look up.”
“we have like 6 of the longest escalators in the western hemisphere!” “man, I use the dupont south one for work - I totally believe that.”
[literally happened as I type this] “my boss said I can work from home today bc the red line isn’t working. I’m already on the train but I’ll be stuck for a while… so, tempting.”
bonus: the buses
“missed the N6: it just didn’t come. schedule says 45min until the next one so I just walked home.”
So like? These were drawn maybe less than a year apart??? And I’m?? So proud of myself??? I never thought my art would reach this point? I never thought I’d improve and I felt like my art was going no where?
I remember when I started actually trying to improve my art when I was about 13/14 and thinking I’d never be as good as the artists who were my inspirations at the time. But now I’m 16 and seeing how far I’ve gotten from when I was 15 is so nice??
