Leaving a Left-Brained World

I am feeling much better today about my paperwork snafu. One of the advisors finally emailed me last night and say he'd be there at 10am sharp! Okee dokee!! I'll be there! :D

I was feeling nervous when I went in this morning because I wasn't sure if they would think I'm being a pain to keep wanting to come in and have them look over stuff. But as soon as I walked in, my advisor was all smiley and like, "Oh good morning! How's everything going?" While he was looking at the paperwork, too, he was like, "You're the one who already has a Bachelor's right? I bet that's why they're requiring all this extra stuff."

It really made me think that he probably is just majorly right-brained and only remembered me once he saw my face but didn't really have a remembrance capacity for dates/times/details over email, which is why our email conversation wasn't very to-the-point at first. I know I can to be like that too (remembering faces better than names & dates), and I'm only partially right-brained. As my mom tells me, "You're kind of both [left-brained and right-brained]." Lol.


This whole situation just serves to remind me that I am leaving a left-brained world and pulling into a right-brained one now. These profs are all probably going to be WAY more relaxed and non-deadline-specific than I'm used to with previous professors. Which is fine I guess, but I'll just have to remind myself to relax and let my creativity take the lead instead of the analytical side of my brain. It'll be refreshing, I think, to learn to exercise that artistic side of my brain though. I'm looking forward to that!

Next week I have a "Welcome to Campus!" event to go to, and then the following Monday is when classes start. It's all coming so fast!! Exciting!

I really do hope that this is the last of the paperwork I need to turn in. That way I can get my financial aid money quickly. I'll need to start buying books and supplies soon, so that money will definitely come in handy!

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 …
