Apparently I like to sleep, etc.

 We've switched to night shift, which I wasn't very excited about, but it's proven to have a lot of unexpected pro's.  One of which is that the nights are filled with colors like this, as the sun has stopped setting, but rolls sleepily along the horizon every night, setting the sky ablaze.  Station is also quieter, and though we have far less opportunities to hang out with friends, we have more time to do the things that often got pushed by the wayside, like journaling and drawing and reading.  Go check out Weird Birds for a rather amusing post about transitioning to night shift, as we wrote it in the delirium of exhaustion.
Here's a picture of a Valentine's Day card I made while transitioning.  The janitors of Antarctica and zappos.com have struck up a rather hilarious relationship, involving shout-outs on customer service lines, signed books, and now we have sent them a large bundle of homemade cards.  Mail is surprisingly efficient considering we're at the bottom of the world, but just in case, we chose the closest non-religious holiday.  Yeah, that's an interactive card of hearts punching each other :)

Also, I had a revelation while perusing the gorgeous photographs of Lily Stockman's studio.  If I could have one thing beyond the things I already have in life, it would be one little room to make things in.  That's it.


  1. I too would like a special little room for writing and making. I used to have a studio, but it has been a while now. Happy making.
