i finished the last first week of school of my last fall semester.
quite frightening. i'll take you through my schedule so when i reference classes later, you'll know to what i'm referring.
contract studio II - new professor. i think i'll learn a lot from her.
our first project is a mall kiosk inspired by a classic architect/furniture designer. i chose charles eames and am selling skateboards and related paraphernalia. i'm pretty excited since i've become fond of the idea of doing retail design. marketing/display/packaging/subliminal messaging fascinates me. any who, i'll post pictures of the completed project later.
greek II - gross. although, my professor may be my new favorite person. he's at least 75 and wears intricate bow ties like i've never seen. the real kicker though is the socks and sandals. normally i have a physical gagging reaction whenever i see this, but on him, it's rather endearing. and he's a grammar freak. each class he informs us of another grammatical error he hears on NPR, or of "dying" english words of which he's fond.
media photography - i die. i'm going to love this class. i'll post some of the stuff i shoot on here!
theories of family development - aka my mrs. class. i hated it within the first minute. the professor is a sweetheart, but i absolutely loath that we spent an hour defining 'family' just to come to the general consensus that everyone has a different definition.
art history - i'm enjoying it so far, so hopefully memorizing hundreds of works won't suck too bad. thankfully i have a somewhat photographic memory.
golf - another darling professor. he's from germany, so all his w's still have that slight v sound to them. i love it.
i'll be busy, but for the most part, it'll be completely enjoyable :)
ps - oh don't worry, i won't become one of those people who go on and on about their lasts. i'm aware no one cares about the last time i register/buy books/stalk people for a parking spot on campus.

Meet my nephew, Sly, the frito bandito
A few weeks ago i got to dog sit this handsome little guy. let me just say, after this, i know i am NOT ept to look after another living thing for a long, long time.
but i had fun with him and all his snuggling and 5 minute bursts of gazelle-like leaping.
i'm now on the hunt for a baylor shirt for him, or a ridiculous mask because of his name.
