It seems that I have sadly inherited Nick’s cold despite his pretty heroic attempts to prevent me from getting it. Germs have their own agenda, despite how OCD germophobic and pre-cautious we are with the hand washing, hand sanitizing, using tissues to open doors, and the like.
Since my left nostril is more clogged than what I imagine of Paula Dean’s arteries, I cannot breathe; and therefore, I cannot sleep. So instead, I have made a Christmas card for my cousin Richie. We’ve been shooting photos with her lil’ baby Taylor since October because she wants to make a photo calendar of Taylor in different “seasonal” outfits. Cute idea, but lots of work! Especially when we’re dealing with a sometimes uncooperative toddler. I have a newfound respect for professional photographers — photographing children is EXHAUSTING and DIFFICULT! But it’s totally worth it if you get some great shots.
Anyway, I got to be a reviewer at the Visual Design Presentation at Lamar this evening with Nick and a couple of other friends of mine. It was pretty last minute when we got asked, but I enjoy that kind of stuff. I am thankful to say that there were quite a few students who really know what they’re doing and have lots of potential to do great in the graphic design industry. And then there are others who…well, don’t. I hate to be so “mean” about things like that, but seriously — you either have it, or you don’t.
Methinks I shall try this whole sleep thing again. Here’s hoping I don’t feel like complete crap when I wake up in the morning. I don’t want to use any of my sick days yet.
