summer is trying my patience

this summer is trying my patience. or perhaps just this past month is. i know i needed to quit my job and i've already gone into all of that, but now i feel like i'm sitting here in limbo. i'm waiting to find a job, i'm waiting to start school, i'm waiting for someone to start buying my etsy hats. i'm tired of waiting. i want something to happen. something good.

i want the check from my recently abandoned profit-sharing account to arrive so i don't have to worry so much about money. i want school to hurry up and get here so i can start learning and growing and embracing my future. i want to not feel guilty for relaxing for this last month of summer and to actually be able to live in the moment and enjoy this unexpected time off that i would've given anything a month ago to have.

i'm not saying that i wish i didn't quit. it's just that now nothing's settled but nothing's happening either and i'm just waiting. for everything. i hate waiting. it's one thing when you plan a vacation. then it's okay to lay around and read or watch tv. but right now it's hard to even enjoy that, even though i want to so bad. i feel this expectant-ness pressing down on me, like something's about to happen, i just don't know when.

i promised myself that this blog would be a happy, fun, creative place but truthfully, that isn't always how i feel. since i also promised myself that this blog would be about just me, not some phony, made-up me, but just me as i am, i guess sometimes i won't always be able to post happy, fun, creative things. but i guess that's okay too.

sometimes the me that i want to be and the me that i am are two different people. maybe that's an infp thing or maybe a gemini thing, or maybe none of that matters and it's just a human thing.

sometimes i just wish that i could see into the future and know that everything was going to be alright. that this boring stretch of stressful nothingness will be just blip in my history in the long run and won't even matter.

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 …
