On Saturday, I got carded.

This is supposed to be some sort of rite of passage, right? But it wasn't for things people normally get carded for, like cigarettes, alchohol, or getting into a club (as I don't do those, I can't get carded for 'em). No, I got carded trying to purchase a movie. D'oh!

Spring Break went by far too quickly, and now I'm back at school. I'm not particularly looking forward to finishing this semester, but I realize that I cannot run away, so I'm going to deal with it as best I can.

I'm quietly pondering some plans and disregarding others. Yes, I probably could develop a more effective study program, spending even more time buried in my books. I refuse to shut myself away, however ... I'm burned out enough as it is, and I see no need to lock myself up and make it worse. If I do an academic internship this summer, I think that could raise my GPA ... but I won't make needed money. Hmm.

I did just get a solid A on my History of Photography midterm, so that gives me new hope.

The ceramics teacher did a demo for our next project today. Watching his hands work with the clay was a surprisingly moving experience for me ... will my own one day move with such skill? Each movement, though seemingly instinctive and instant, was controlled and elegant. I want that effective grace!

I finally got around to making the logo for nyxdae's group. I found it very easy to create a mockery of the "abstract yet elegant" figure style that a lot of companies seem to use, and the minty colors gave it an appropriately medicine-ly feel. I got paid in chocolate for my efforts, and all was well.

It is indeed a beautiful logo. It is perfect for a chiropractic clinic...Great mockery technique!!!

Internships are amazing! You can learn so much more on a company site you are interested in than in school. If you have a chance to do it, go for it...Maybe you can get a paid one ;-)

I don't even drink, but I get carded all the time... just for buying spray paint. OK, maybe it's not a big thing, but when you're my age and you get mistaken for a teenager, that's just fuuunnnnnnyyy... haha

Not being carded totally took all the fun out of the first time I went to a bar.
