What I am most afraid of.

Today was interesting blog prompt - "What are you most afraid of?" - because I couldn't really think of anything off the top of my head. I tend to be rather optimistic about life, generally speaking, but I guess one thing that lingers in the back of my mind some days is that I'll never actually reach my larger goals in life (become financially stable, become a graphic designer, move to NYC, travel the world... in no particular order).

One of the tendencies I've noticed about myself is that I tend to perpetually daydream but never actually act on anything (maybe this is an INFJ thing?). So I fear sometimes that my daydreams will stay just that... daydreams... forever, instead of actually being realized. I think my stepping out of my comfort zone and actually going back to school is a huge step of actualization though, as will moving 1000 miles away to Los Angeles (something about a change in scenery makes everything seem more real).

I'm not really sure if this qualifies as something that I'm afraid of, but it was still an interesting thing to think about, and it gave me something to write today! ;)

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...

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 …

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?
