The Daily Meep

Found out that my favorite local gem bakery in my small town burned down this past weekend. Really bums me out when bad things like this happen to such good people. I’ve always enjoyed coming here because all of the ingredients they use for their menu items are organic, homemade, and natural. I live in a small, pretty mundane town, and this bakery was honestly the only positive thing about it. The owners have always been so sweet and passionate about their creations; my heart really goes out to them and I hope they have a speedy rebuild. Please send your positive vibes there way!

I’m very excited to be finishing up this chapter in my life and the past few months have been hectic, but filled with lots of good times and good memories.

Cute wedding photos always make me tear up, even when it’s random strangers pictures I don’t even know.

Because the couples usually look so happy and so much in love, it’s overwhelming for me to look at.

Happy 25th Anniversary, World Wide Web! Some of these early museum webpages really cracked me me up.

See British Museum, The Metropolitan Museum, the Louvre, the Prado, and more classics in a new Museum Nerd (>140) blog post, 10 Vintage Museum Web Pages from the 90s.

SO GREAT.

Don’t worry. I’m all right. I can’t help it. It is just my body.

Last night I was social and did social things that normal 21&+ year olds like to do. Verdict: being social is exhausting.

Encounters

I met such an interesting man today while receptioning at the gallery.

His name was David, he was about 60 or so years old, and he was a retired film lecturer/ building restorer who came to check out the ceramics exhibition.

He told me his teacher’s work was on display here and that he’s been taking ceramics classes as a hobby since he’s retired. He asked me about Woodbury, what I’m majoring in, and what the school was like, the typical stuff I get asked.

But then we started talking about how he studied architecture and art history for his undergrad, but had no desire to pursue it as a profession. He later got a degree in filmmaking, and was teaching film classes over at USC and worked in restoration for old buildings.

We talked for about 45 minutes and he shared so much wisdom and experience with me, telling me about his younger life during the 1960s, his spiritual beliefs, and his outlook on life.

Towards the end of our chat he told me I have a wonderful soul and he wished me the best of luck once I graduate, and that he hopes I someday have a great man or woman in my life to share my soul with.

I really cherished this experience because I’ve had such a crappy past few weeks filled with stress and it was so nice to meet a total stranger who genuinely believed in me.

On the bright side.

However….

I try to think optimistically and I realized there were a lot of positives to today.

PRIOR to walking into the shock that awaited me in my graphic design class, I had woke up early, gotten free paper samples for the stationary from a great paper store, and managed to get everything printed and finished with an hour to spare before class. So I got to stop by Coffee Bean and grab breakfast before class which was nice.

I also went to work today and had some of my esteem boosted after I told a colleague about my unfortunate morning class, and this person pointed out that I have something that the graphic design students don’t. I have great marketing and communication skills, I can draw and paint, and I have great writing skills that make me very multifaceted so I shouldn’t even think that I’m the underdog.

I also talked to my advisor today and got some more kinks in my degree project hammered out, and feel a lot better about the direction I’m shifting towards.

Those were the major highlights today, but all in all, I’m just relieved this week is over which means I am one step closer to graduation.

Underdog, sigh.

Today was a really frustrating day because I made a dumb mistake and it really took a toll on me.

I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned before, but I’m a Marketing & Graphic Design major, in my last semester ever of my undergraduate career.

BACKSTORY: However, since the nature of my major has two disciplines, I don’t take all of the classes a student in one of the traditional majors would. Therefore, I haven’t taken all of the classes in either major.

It hasn’t been a problem for my Marketing classes, but for Graphic Design courses, it’s been dreadful for the past year. Since the program is creative in nature, there’s bound to be competition in the atmosphere like any other creative major. And since I signed on to the curriculum later than expected, I’ve sort of been at a disadvantage than everyone else.

…Anyway, back to rant about today.
We had a stationary pinup today for our class session based off of the logo system that has been chosen by our client, and for some reason, my brain thought stationary just meant a paper sheet / letterhead. So I walk into class and see fellow classmates pinning up business cards and envelopes and I’m stunned after a peer told me it meant everything. I didn’t know stationary meant EVERYTHING.

I’ve always felt like the outcast and outsider in these graphic courses since I’m the only half breed so to speak, that’s in the class, making me feel as if I need to prove myself and show that I’m just as good as any of them, despite having less experience. But forgetting what the term stationary actually meant in design lingo just discouraged me more than it should of.

And no one likes standing in front of a classroom critique looking like the only person who misunderstood the professors instructions.

I try not to let things like this bother me, but it really does suck when you feel so utterly alone and singled out in these classes. I know I’m a friendly person, but some people just aren’t interested in making new acquaintances.

I’m just rambling at this point because it helps me clear my head.

Oh and I fell down today while walking to class and bruised my knee and that kind of sucked today too.

Sigh.
