Here's what I did this week!

I vowed (to myself) that I would be better about sharing what's going on in my school life this term. I kept meaning to share last term and didn't get to it very often. Sorry!!

So... starting the new year off right... here's what I did this week!

I read about the color wheel. Did you know if you combine two paint colors from opposite sides of the wheel, they'll make gray? 

We had to make a collage of colors that represented ourselves. Here's what mine looked like when I was just starting it. (Stay tuned for next week's photo montage to see the finished product!)

Typography class is pretty exciting. Everyone warned me that it will be brutally hard, but so far it's just been fun. Even the reading has been fun! So many pretty pictures in these books!! 

Today I'm reading about type. It's surprisingly interesting. ;)

And yet another typography reading assignment. So much to learn and absorb!!

I had to add a non-school picture in here for good measure. How does an avocado-tuna sandwich sound? It's super delish!!


  1. I want to read all of your books! hah. My Typography classes were my favorite...looking forward to seeing your finishing collage!!

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 …
