Hmm, I think I'll open up friending again. Drop me a line if you think you share some interests with me, and maybe we can be pals, yeah?

Man, what's been going on...I periodically forget that LJ exists! I returned from Chicago almost a month ago, wow :'D I'm back at school now for the last 6 months of college! AHHHH I'm just starting on my senior thesis, which is a bit daunting but even so, I'm determined to keep the 18 credit hours I'm taking this quarter. So far I really love the two electives I'm taking for fun--Political Philosophy and LGBTQ Literature~ Hoping they'll both be helpful in informing my thesis project, which will likely focus on social justice and gender roles.

Also I'm distressingly obsessed with Tintin (again) sob sob I want more time to draw but alas T3T WIPCollapse )

Hrm, the last episode of series 2 Sherlock is this weekend, and I have a lot of complex ~feelings~ about this second season. It seems like a different show, almost, and not entirely in a good way? Maybe this is always what happens when one builds up to something for a year and half and is finally faced with its undeniable reality. I'm the sort of person who judges the shit out of things though, regardless of any sentimental value they might have. Ho hum~

Anyway, watching Tintin a second time and the last episode of Sherlock with my friend this weekend! Excite.

I've been doing a lot of etsy shopping lately LOL on my eternal search for MOAR SHOES oh my god I've got such a madness

I bought one of those vintage-style school satchels too, I can't help myself, I need everything vintage-prep


ugh I know, I hate awkward perspective mirror photos of yourself, it's unavoidable awkward perspective mirror photos of myselfCollapse )

and some school stuff so behind on everythingCollapse )

sighhh currently on an intense apartment hunt for a place in Chicago. I'd love to live in the midst of a lot of shops and restaurants but I'm probably going to have to settle for a quieter residential area?? I want to live in Lincoln Park...but it's so expensive :'D AUGH I really want this to be different from Baltimore! I want to enjoy this coop quarter fully. It's my last time, so no regrets! (hopefully)

Also I've only got 2 weeks left of school UGH I've been more unmotivated this quarter than I've ever been in my entire time in college...Also also, my mom is leaving for Shanghai this Thursday for a teaching job! She'll be there at least a year, with time off for Christmas--it's really great for her, but of course I'll miss her (and her cooking sob /insatiable)

Hoooly shit so I was about to reblog a "share your old art" thing on tumblr but then I got to digging around on my oldest external HD for my old art and I've just been looking through it all evening. Memories! It made me really want to do an art retrospective. I mean it's been almost 6 years since I did the last one, so I think it's time for an update. First 5 years will mostly be a repeat of the older post.

BE WARNED: AWESOMELY UGLY OLD ART, image heavyCollapse )

THE END.

I want to move to a cottage in the country, run around all day in grassy fields, and watch green things grow. :)

This season always makes me inexplicably both optimistic and nostalgic. It's like the world is waking up after a long, long sleep~

I think I'll do the "what's in your purse" meme later, when I find a clear surface to photograph on (gahh).

It's off to Baltimore! In 4 weeks. Figured the big name might be better to work for in the long term. Might not even stay in design, so I'm not really bothered. A really cool firm in San Francisco wanted to interview me but they were waaay too late, bastards. Ah well. I'm not hip enough for a real design firm anyway.

It's supposed to get up to 66°F today! Yay yay yay

Argh, so my options so far are thus:

T. Rowe Price, Baltimore, MD - Lots of responsibility, but will be pretty much alone in Baltimore. Also need car (hate). Possibly really corporate...which is not what I want to do after school.
Sasaki Associates, Boston, MA - Maybe not that much responsibility, but do not need car. Also have never done multidisciplinary work.
Minelli, Boston, MA - Small office of six people, culture & arts branding. Sounds cool, but already done branding, sorta.

I'm not sure which I should choose. I don't want to get super hung up on location, but...man, I really want to go to Boston! The one firm in Boston I REALLY want to work at - SapientNitro - haven't gotten back to us yet. And I need to reply to the offers I have by next Tues/Weds AUGH. If I wait for Sapient, it's a total gamble, there's no guarantee they'll even want to interview me. Sigh. I only have two co-op quarters left. I guess I could change again next time if I don't like what I choose...I'd like to end with a company I want to work for after graduation. sdflkjdf I don't know what to do.

I'm taking this philosophy class this quarter that's really fascinating, even though the professor is a terrible lecturer and probably the most stereotypical modern philosopher ever (soft, doughboy appearance, subscribes to the New Yorker and belongs to a Bacchanalia club, etc etc lmao forever).

philosophy and life blah blahCollapse )

I'm applying for internships at few places in Boston, in San Fran...maybe one in Seattle (which would be awesome to get), and also that place in NYC that offered me a job last time. But I'm not sure about that last one. I think I want to try going to a different city, get a different perspective. I really hate my portfolio. Like, I know I'm not a bad designer but compared to work from other schools, I feel like my stuff is totally shit. FFFFFFFF

You know those days where every little thing you do feels futile because the end result is always total garbage?
...Yeah.
