This should be the last official blog post for the semester, with a wrap up one coming some time this week.
So much learned this week. It took me about two hours, but I cut ten angles to make a pentagon. I then got to use my nail gun to put it together. Geometry was a problem for me in high school, between a bad teacher and an unknown learning disability, that really isn’t a surprise now. I was happy when I figured it out, even though I wanted to bash my head into the wall at one point. That seems to be the overall lesson this semester, perseverance produces results, but more on that in my final post.
I forgot last week’s post. The flu struck me down and I was not able bodied at all last weekend. Which is also why my project for the Mary Anderson center went through several metamorphses. While it wasn’t my original vision, or even my second, I am very pleased with the finished product. I was also happy that the install time was greatly reduced from the JAS instal.  


Project 4 – Final Version

It’s here, & it’s done. From what I’ve seen on the blog so far, mine is a lot different from everyone else’s.¬† Hopefully that isn’t a bad thing. Project 4 - FinalSo I’m sure some of you are wondering what a lot of these represent to me. Well..

symbol in top left corner – that is a symbol for independence that has a pattern of 100 dollar bills. i’ve had a job since i was about 14, always making my own money. i bought my own car, i pay for my college and rent, etc.¬†so financially i feel that i am a very independent person.

cross – not only does it represent my religion, but to me, it always represents faith and it’s a reminder to never lose faith.

two little girls – those are my cousins, Taylor and Reagan. they basically are my entire world. i love them to pieces and would do absolutely anything for them.

heart lock with key –¬†to me, this represents my family. i feel a sense¬†of security with my family so that’s why it’s a lock, and of course i love my family, so that’s why it’s in the shape of a heart.

colors – that is representing my future.¬† i’m striving to be¬†a graphic designer so the colors seemed fitting.

clocks – this represents two things. 1, the past. 2, to not let time slip away, because time is always flying by.

teardrops with anchor – i lost my best friend when i was 15 years old.¬† it was a very hard time for me, and dealing with it wasn’t easy.¬† so the teardrops represent the struggle that came along with losing her, and the anchor represent the strength and stability that i have now.

silhouette Рthat is a silhouette of me while i was cheerleading.  cheerleading has been apart of my life since i was in 5th grade and i have some of the best memories from it.
