Me, then.

So this is a video taken of me last year around this time, around 3 or 4 AM. I believe. We were eating at an all night place near FUXING North? South?

anyway, it was amazing. I miss those times. Tom took this video I believe.

Big thanks to Helen for bring (not)sexy back!

Sunday at the vet.

So I just went to the fucking vet coz my parents want the dog to die. I think they are just over her. It's really aggrivating to have immigrant parents sometimes, as some of you might know, there's always something missing that is so normal for others' folks... U know, things like resources like the net and just popular things that we take for granted they don't know about. Or care about. Or when ur father says to you "I've been coughing for my entire life, NO ONE CARES ABOUT ME!" (even tho my dog has cogestive heart failure and she was literally drowning in her lungs this morning). It's ALMOST funny, cept I was tired and well, it is what it is, the ethnic parents and their Americanized children. *sigh*

But I digress.

So I did what any good pet owner would do, take her to the emergency vet, she got an EKG, her pulse taken, and an IV of the drug that she lapsed on... I don't even want to get into how easily that could've been prevented...

She peed on the floor as soon as we got there and we got seen right away. The whole time I was thinking I was in a Grey's Anatomy episode. No McDreamy tho. Oh well.

I'm actually very very annoyed right now and will blog later. I need to decompress.


PS: $225.00.

First week of school.

So it started.

Nothing crazy exciting yet, but I do really enjoy the classes.

1. Modays, I have a photoshop class. I thought I knew, but WOW, I really have no idea. I think it's gonna be a good technical class, I'll be able to talk to the printer/outputter in their language. It'll make my work look like how I intend it to look. The teacher's name is Manolo. That in itself is already way too cool. So much fun i'm gonna have with his name.

2. Next, on Tuesdays, there is Brainstorming class and In Design. Brainstorming is a class that I'm gonna enjoy a lot I'm sure. I've already decided that I'm really really not going to censor myself which means that I will prolly offend some people. OFW.

InDesign is a class that I REALLY need, coz I've actually never touched that program at all. Nelson, the teacher says it's easy, so should be good, once I get up to speed.

3. Wednesdays, I have Layout/Design. All black and white class, no color to rely on. We're gonna solely doing stuff with type, and focusing on negative space. It's gonna be a challange, but great for me, I know it. First class, we started Kerning, but hand. Cutting shit out and spacing them, adjusting per copy. It was VERY tedious, but ultimately really helped me see the space and where it makes the eye go. Real cool.


Most importantly, the put in a new kitchenette thing with new microwave and a great new fridge. There's been talk of a keg as well. AHEM.

People are really cool so far. I'm happy that there are people from all over the place. There is Kuwait, Israel, Spain, All over the US, and other parts of Europe... more on that later. Everyone seems like they have a good sense of humor and I'm excited to get to work with them.

First day of school.

I started school today.

It was basically orientation and people starting to group up.

There are a lot of people from all over the world, most notably, a chick from Kuwait who is 21 and hot.

Today, I learned that I am not as good at Photoshop as I'd like to be.
