    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,

    One of the first projects I did in grad school. It was so much fun to make and it’s one of my favorite photography projects.

    TGI-Effin’-F

    Friday. Ah! So, i had my school review today… The thing i’ve been preparing for the past few weeks. The thing that wasn’t letting me sleep. The thing that was stressing me out. And… I PASSED!

    I don’t have the energy to write anything else but that i feel relieved and excited. Now Friday, let’s see what else you have left for me.

    Thank you God for today.

    I hope you have a great friday, now go out and have a drink for me.

    With care,

    Raquel

    thugsday

    "As Tupac defined it, a thug is someone who is going through struggles, has gone through struggles, and continues to live day by day with nothing for them. That person is a thug and the life they are living is the thug life. A thug is NOT a gangster." (www.urbandictionary.com) ((yeah, i used it as reference hah!))

    i’m struggling today, i mean, not as bad as Tupac would define it but yeah. it’s thursday, pre-review thursday. kbfli#$%^%kbvdjkbsvln@@@kkl^&^*^%!!!!! ok, carrying on. i feel like scratching my head, eating popcorn, doing my nails, running around my apt blasting Blink 182, Netflixing, giving You a foot rub, napping, making tacos… i feel like doing anything but i what i need to be doing. hee hee hoo hoo. thank god this review is tomm ‘cause i might lose it soon. 

    anyways, it’s almost friday. can’t wait for this to be over and i’m hopeful it’ll have a positive outcome. i’m ready to leave this week behind. to leave bad and stressing moments behind. one good thing this week has brought is distractions. even tho it has been a pain in my butt it really helped me take the focus off an unpleasant situation. all i hope now is that the upcoming days bring good and positive moments.

    smile, it’s almost friday. see ya tomm.

    with care,

    Raquel
