  • Week in the life, Day 7

    Yay! Last day. I’m definitely ready for this writing exercise to be over. As much as its been nice getting to write again (it has!) it’s also time consuming to remember and write about each day in a timely manner. Last post! I’m not sure how representative this week is because I think I had more planned that I usually do, but I also did kind of want to capture this super busy time at work.

    Summary: walked around Land’s End, Korean lunch, Botanical Gardens to listen to piano, Vietnamese dinner

    People I talked to: 5 people from work I’ve never met before, my two mentees, Joseph, Joel, Monica, Vinita, Igor, Katie, Sarah, and Chris

    Holy cow. I made it to day 5. Whodathunk?

    Summary: Work, lunch, sleep

    People I talked to: Katie, Sarah, Grant, mentee #2, Chris, Vinita, Matt, Christy


    Me, not able to sleep at night. My room is actually not that dark but mostly orange with the eery glow of the streetlamp.

  • Week in the life, Day 1

    I have been thinking about writing a lot recently. Because I have realized with sadness that a a month has gone by without so much as a howdy-do. But as I sat on my couch this evening, I also thought that I didn’t feel like I had anything to share. Sometimes I feel exhausted from the week and I don’t feel like I can do recreational thinking anymore. At least no thought longer than a tweet.

    So I thought I would just describe my days for a week in excruciating detail to you. And then maybe you’d be like “ah yes, I’m not missing much.”

    Sunday, Day 1

  • Work metaphors

    I didn’t make it in time for your Friday 5, but I have 8 drawings to maybe make up for it. Since working I’ve started hearing the same phrases over and over again and I couldn’t help thinking about visualizing them the other day.

    These are apparently the things I do at work.


  • If my weekend were a kickstarter campaign…


  • Happy birthday, Carissa!


    Always late, but never never.

    *100% inspired by Oshie Merski from CMU.

  • I went to the museum yesterday


    It was the Carnegie Museum of Art and Natural History. I mostly went for the art part, but got lost and wandered through a small part of the natural history museum.

    It was my “do things you like” day in order to re-invigorate me for next week. Since I have the time right now I should be making the most of it. CMU students get free admissions to major museums in town so why not? I have realized recently that I get the most out of museums of I get the audio tour guide because I really like hearing more about the pieces. I like the feeling of getting a secret little story. One day I should try going on a full tour.

    It was a pleasant way to spend the morning and I’m glad  went.

    I was alarmed about how big birds are from how big you think they should be. Not just ones we’re told are huge, but even penguins, sea gulls, and turkeys. When I went passed a taxidermied emu it was like…I could almost ride that….so I could probably definitely ride an ostrich. (Thus the picture).

    It was also so neat to see the birds of paradise on display. Seeing their feathers up close is unreal. Check out some doing their mating dances from our dear friend David Attenborough, or see the whole 1-hour episode here.

    Anyway, thought I would pop and kind of smooth over my last, post with a happier one. Tomorrow is my department’s orientation and I’m so excited to meet everyone!

  • 5: watercolor cartoons

    So I bought a watercolor set yesterday.

    So. Much. Fun.

    I haven’t watercolored in at least 10 years (ugh, I sound so old) and it was fun to play around with them again! Nothing serious, of course.
