Mark Every Hour With A Picture!

Yesterday I tried a fun experiment that I may repeat again. I took a photo every hour, on the hour (give or take 5-10 minutes), all day long. I saw this done about a week ago over on Artichoke Designs and wanted to give it a try. It was definitely a fun experience and made the day seem to go by really fast!

If you were following me on Twitter or Instagram, you probably already saw some of these, but for the rest of you, here's what my day looked like yesterday.

10:00am - Still sleeping. One of the perks of unemployment.
11:00am - The rain stopped for the first time in two days so I went outside to take Etsy pictures.
12:00pm - Carlita wouldn't stop playing with my yarn, so I gave her a remote to play with instead.
1:00pm - Working on a new pattern. So far, it's driving me crazy.

2:00pm - Watching "A Pixar Story" on Netflix while I work on my knitting.

3:00pm - Carlita fell asleep on the back of my chair while I was knitting.
4:00pm - Microwaving my lunch. Yum.
5:00pm - Finally settled on a new pattern to try. I'm almost done with the first prototype. So far, so good.
6:00pm - Carlita is surveying the neighborhood.
7:00pm - Waiting for the rice to finish so I can have dinner.
8:00pm - It got warm this evening, so I broke out the fans.
9:00pm - Time sure rushes by when you mark every hour with a picture! I just finished dinner and I think I'll start another hat.
10:00pm - Lights out. Time to watch a little tv before bed.

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
