90+ Degree Weather

I have so much to do this weekend but I can't seem to move a muscle. I need to pack up to start moving things to my parent's house, but it's been so stinkin' hot lately that I just want to lie here and do nothing! I really shouldn't complain; we're only just now getting 90+ degree weather at the end of August. Still... it makes me grouchy. I can't wait until fall.

Speaking of fall, my financial aid is giving me fits. I should've known. I have to submit a whole bunch of extra paperwork explaining why I need more aid after I've already been to school four years. It's so irritating. If I were going for a Master's, no one would question it. Maybe I should just go for a Master's. It'd certainly have less paperwork.

I really, really want this though, and I'm not giving up. I just need to go down to the school and find the right people to talk to so I can figure out what they want me to put on these papers. I have to basically map out my entire schedule for the next three years. I wonder what happens if I ever need to deviate from the plan? Or do they just want to know that I've thought it through... that I'm not just trying to waste their time?

And such is the end of August. Hot, humid, and frustrating. Hopefully September will be better.

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 …
