    Cute puppies only have good days.
    I’m like that f***** movie….

    You know that stupid cheesy movie with Alexis Bledel -if that’s her name- where she graduates and can’t find a job… That’s me right now. I have a BA in Advertising and an MA in Graphic Design and here I am as a hostess in a restaurant. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not completely hating on my current job but… FUCK, I HAVE A MASTER’S DEGREE! I feel like I should be earning enough to at least open a savings account (note how I didn’t say 401K… that’s how broke I am) 

    The poop is that I have all these “degrees” and I want nothing to do with them… Well, not really nothing but not much. I like design and ALL the creativity that comes with it. Hell, I love creativity just ask my mom… but sitting in front of a computer wasn’t really in my plans (ever). The worst thing is that almost everything requires fucking computers these days and that FUCKING SUCKS! Anyways, before starting a whole rant about how computers have come to screw everything up, I’ll stop. Computers have been good to me. I can communicate with family and friends that aren’t close to me but at the same time distanced me from people that lived less than 5 miles away. Idk what computers do anymore. I mean, didn’t people in the freakin’ 1940s do amazing things without them?

    I call this a “Rant Post” so it won’t make sense but keep in mind that I’m a recent graduate with no job and debt knocking on my door. I’m crazy.

    Have an awesome Thursday :)

    great song for tonight… TGIF

    Had so much fun sketching this today! 

    HOPE

    Lately, I’d been feeling lost [career wise] and this had me feeling low, very low. I don’t have a 5yr plan… Hell, I don’t have a 1 week plan. I always thought I knew what I wanted but, apparently, I don’t. What I do know is… I am proud of the person I am today, I am proud because I have overcome problems and circumstances that I never thought I would, I ventured out because I wanted more, I want more. Who knows where I’ll be tomorrow, only God. One thing I am certain of is that…

    I have so many things to be thankful for.

    "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
    -Matthew 6:34

    The Serenity Prayer

    God grant me the serenity 
    to accept the things I cannot change; 
    courage to change the things I can;
    and wisdom to know the difference.

    Living one day at a time; 
    Enjoying one moment at a time; 
    Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; 
    Taking, as He did, this sinful world
    as it is, not as I would have it; 
    Trusting that He will make all things right
    if I surrender to His Will;
    That I may be reasonably happy in this life 
    and supremely happy with Him
    Forever in the next.
    Amen.

    Typeface Design class was definitely a challenge but at the end of the day I can say Prof. Newman was the best and I couldn’t have learned as much from anyone else. It was a love/hate process but it definitely paid off.


    Anti-Cigarette Butt Littering campaign I made for my Social Awareness class… Pretty cool stuff.

    The Cycle

    OK, I’m no expert in relationships… Hell no. But I can tell when people are being idiots in them. Look, you don’t need to have a PhD to know when someone’s being played or blown off. From my point of view (a girl), I have to give props to the guys that are very good with words ‘cause us (girls) are fucking suckers for words… Which sucks. We love the whole “You’re one of the best girls I’ve ever met” or “I have never said this to any girl before” shit. And, don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying we’re idiots but we do need to stop taking words so seriously. I am a true believer that -Actions Speak Louder Than Words-. Think about it dumdasses (no offense) ((yes offense)) 

    Sincerely mad at women who are stupid,
