April 2009

So Bryce just told me I don’t blog or twitter so it feels like he doesn’t even know me anymore. I decided I’m going to try to blog once a week even if its about nothing. That seems reasonable.

I have one more week of school before Finals week begins. I have a book project due, a photography project due, another book project due, and a t-shirt & poster due for another class. Plus a test although it isn’t a Final as much as a normal 6 chapter test.

In my Graphic Design class we just finished up a brochure that the entire class worked on for the College of Design. We had a $2400 budget for printing. Once it is done, which it now is, it’ll be mailed to prospective students. The class was split into groups: Interviews, Images, Layout, and Printing. One group had to interview students from the seven different majors the college offers and learn what they like about their majors are, what they do in a day, and what their dreams and aspirations are. Based on their answers the image group will create highly photoshoped images to go with a person’s story that is featured along with the image. Once the images and stories are done, the layout group figures out where to place everything and what typefaces to use. Once that is all done it is ready to print. We just finished it up last Tuesday and hopefully our clients, two old ladies who are high up in the College of Design, like it.

I was a part of the image group and the interview group.
This project took a lot of time and it is nice to have it done, especially since we have our own book to make for our final so we were working on two projects at one time for about a week. Doesn’t seem like a long time but it feels like it took a lot of time away from working on our final project.

I went to the driving range for the first time this year on Saturday and it was glorious. A guy from work texted me he was going with a buddy of his so Houa and I drove there, I got dropped off, and she went off to get a pedicure and a manicure which apparently was amazing as well. Anyways, it was awesome. Nice sunny day out just hitting golf balls. Now I am extremely sore. My entire back is messed up, my arms, my sides, and my inner thigh. I am very sore and stiff…but excited at the same time. I want to golf!
