Daily Life

Due to my MacBook cord deciding it didn't want to charge my MacBook anymore and also due to my school schedule, I thought it might be fun to do a series of quick posts from my iPhone for awhile. I'll try to post a photo a day and give a brief synopsis of what I've been up to. What do you think?

So my first day of my last term of school was yesterday. So far so good! I'm only taking 3 classes instead of the 5 that I should be taking, but I know I made the right decision. Having too busy of a schedule totally stressed me out and these three classes that I am taking are going to be insanely tough as it is. We're working on our graduating portfolio, personal identity and branding, and personal website (to be used for our online portfolio). Needless to say all these are all very important projects and very time consuming as well!

Which brings me to another topic I'd like to discuss. Well two really... (did I say this was going to be a quick post? oops). So since my portfolio site will be done in Wordpress, I most likely will move my blog over there this summer to keep everything together. Ordinarily I've liked Blogger just fine, but with their doing away with Google Reader and Friend Connect it's not nearly as easy and convenient of a blogging system as it used to be.

Which brings up my second point... I was testing out Google+ as an alternate means of letting people subscribe in lieu of using Google Reader or Friend Connect. Turns out GR is just as unusable as it was when I first tried it. Apparently there is still no (free) way to automatically publish my blog feed on there, which is the biggest downside for me. I have enough to do in my life without regressing to 2001 and manually submitting my blog feed every single time I write a post. Get with the program, Google!

Anyway... long story short. Probably going to pull the plug on my G+ account soon. Unless you really want it. Speak now or forever hold your peace.

INFJ vs INFP

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 …
