Know what's awkward?
When you’re in a crowded computer lab and the girl sitting next to you is talking to herself and freaking out a little. What the heck? I talk to myself as much as the next person, but mostly around people I know, or just once in a while… very quietly. I don’t understand people who just freak out to no one.

Put in any letters that you have of a word or anything an after answering some questions, it’ll tell you which font it is! How bad ass is that?
I just joined graphicdesignerforum.com hopefully it’s going to be a bad-ass forum.
Why yes, Illustrator. I would LOVE you to freak out on my after I’ve worked for a VERY long time on this logo! And go ahead… quit unexpectedly! It makes me so happy to see you doing that and not restoring default settings after I restart!
I just had an amazing nap. Ahhhhhhhh.

I did not sleep well last night. It was just one of those nights where I couldn’t get comfortable and my back hurt and I had a million different things running through my mind that I just couldn’t stop thinking about. I used to have this problem a lot at home this summer, but when that happened, I would just get up and watch tv for a little bit or something to distract myself. I guess...

Both of my classes got cancelled today! That means I’m free until my internship at 2:30 p.m.! I really should spend this time working on stuff for a big presentation I have next Wednesday, but we’ll see. On a side note, I got up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night and I had the worst cramp in my left calf. I haven’t had one of those since I have been scuba diving...
I’m taking photo-j next term in hopes that I’ll get into photography. I want to start shooting every day because of some stuff that my prof. said in class today that I’ll post later.

I should follow these
I don’t know what I want. I feel like I’m making this big push toward something (getting a job?) but it’s so allusive that I don’t know if that even exists. I get bored with things so easily, I’m worried that I’m never going to be satisfied with a job. Is it good that I studied journalism? Sometimes I wish I had majored in digital arts so I could learn more....
Sorry. I’ve been so busy lately! Between planning for Flux, planning Emerald Magazine, Allen Hall Advertising, finishing up at the Oregon Daily Emerald and training my successor, school and life in general, I have been totally swamped. I’m still trying to find a job next term. Luckily, I have to fix up my resume for one of my classes on Wednesday, so that’ll help. I need an easy...
Today is the last of our beautiful sunny days. At least it’s easier to get things done when it’s rainy out.

clientsfromhell: “I hate this new font. Use the first one I showed you. This one makes the site look cheap instead of elegant.” The ‘cheap’ font was Georgia, the ‘elegant’ font was Georgia Italic.
Gimme gimme gimme!
It was a beautiful day
Every year in Oregon, we go through a week in February when we get a small taste of summer. When I was a junior in high school, it was the week of tennis tryouts, so instead of wearing five layers of sweats while trying out, we were actually able to wear shirts and tank tops…. Wha? Anyway, this week is one of those weeks. It’s absolutely gorgeous outside. I can’t sit outside...
ducktails: F-u, economics. →
dailybranflakes: Got my econ midterm grade back. And the results are…..not good. I HATE ECONOMICS. On the brighter side, my GTF said that the average for this test was about 10% LOWER than the first midterm, and on the first midterm, if you got anywhere between 50%-60%, you got a C. So…there is hope. But it… Ugh, I’m sorry HJ. I don’t understand why we have to take economics either…it’s a...

I think that it’s refreshing to find out that I am not the only person who already has their life completely mapped out. Sometimes I feel like an anomaly because everyone else who is my age is so caught up in partying and the social aspect of college. I am perfectly happy with my social life and I strive to make sure that I am getting the most out of my college experience and that I’m...
