When my life slows down...

I had a whole post written out on the mobile app and then it got deleted.... You ever have days like that? Lol.

I was waxing on and on about how when my life slows down, apparently so does my blog writing! The days are already blurring together and I've only been unemployed for a week (if you count the partial week I was suspended). I've been spending my days sleeping in, applying for every office job I can find, catching up on TV shows, and knitting up a storm (new items to my Etsy shop soon!!).

Today I plan to eat breakfast (yes, I woke up at noon) and then I told myself I have to go register with some temp agencies. Why do I feel nervous about that? Probably because it feels a bit like a job interview, which always makes me nervous. Bleh...

Oh, I made homemade popcorn last night! Until I get my final paycheck in the mail, I'm kind of limited in food choice to what's already in my cupboards. I remembered that I still had some popping corn in there, so I whipped it out last night. It's pretty fun to feel the kernels popping underneath your hands as you move the pan back and forth on the burner!

I also watched an insanely boring orientation video for school yesterday. It was a prerequisite for being able to go in and sign up for classes. They probably wouldn't be able to tell if I didn't watch it, but somehow I could feel their eyes on me, so I did the right thing. It was pretty patronizing though... did you know "college will NOT be like high school"?? Lol. Anyway, I go in and sign up for classes in a couple weeks, so that will be awesome!! One step closer to being a graphic designer! :D

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 …
