Presidential Coin; no monetary value

4 Comments

Right about now I’m sitting on the porch of the local coffee shop.Joe Bucks, sipping the last of my vanilla iced latte and browsing facebook (and taking webcam shots of myself, obviously).

So this weekend was a very fun one–Modern Miracle did some more recording with Michael Martin and Charity and I spent most of the day sewing. Our brainstorming process for our recycled/DIY business is coming along fairly well. Saturday we focused on trying out the ‘blue jeans into purse’ idea. In general, this idea seems very juvenile to me simple because it’s just not my style, but we’re coming up with some great ideas to sort of sophisticate the idea so it’s not so childish. It was fun finally getting to work together instead of just talking about it. Here’s a sneak preview of one of the designs we’re working on!!

So, this summer I did a lot of freelance design work for TSTC–I created a TSTC pole-banner and did a lot of painting and currently I’m designing some t-shirts. Apparently I’ve done enough to gain some recognition because the TSTC president wants to give me a presidential coin–which is a high honor (I think…my mom has two of them) And apparently they want the newspaper to be there and such. Well, of course part of me is screaming,  “Hey, a scholarship would be nice!!”, but I’m actually happy to recieve some type of recognition! And who knows…maybe getting my name out there will give me some more work!!

I thank God for showing me design…I really do love it and want it to be my career! Although I’m never really overly thrilled to go to class, my fall schedule is packed with multimedia classes, so that should be fun (up until finals when I’ll have so many projects to do!) I’m so happy that I’m almost finished with my degree! This summer trigonometry class marked the end of any basic, required class, so now I am focusing only on classes that pertain to my major! Ten more classes to go and then I’m done! I graduate! haha…I know, I’m getting a little ahead of myself…ten more classes means two or three more semesters, but hey, that’s really not that long.
