I GRADUATED! ! !
As of last Sunday, I officially have a BFA in New Media from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. It;s been a long journey - there were two points where I seriously considered dropping out. I still haven’t wrapped my head around it yet.
Here’s a photo of Mike and I just after the ceremony. It’s so weird that we’re in the same major; there were only 8 New Media undergrads total in our year!
This is everyone in New Media minus Eric.. I’m going to miss having classes with them all. <3
My family and I celebrated at the reception afterwards~
And took some photos with my closest friends. Ahh I’m feeling more and more nostalgic by the day! :o
Now I’m just packing things up, moving, cleaning and organizing. But after that, I get to blog full time again (so many posts planned, including an outfit post for graduation~). Can’t wait! c;
With only a couple weeks until our BFA shows go up, I’ve been super busy trying to both start and finish a ton of projects. But while I’m so busy, I can’t help but think about the small amount of time I have left with all my friends as normal college students.
I think I’m starting to get prematurely nostalgic for what I’m assuming will be a simpler time in our lives. There probably won’t ever be a time when we’re all living so close to eachother without real jobs and obligations, and are able to just walk over anytime to hang out. I know this sounds depressing, but I’m just as excited for the future; we’ll all go on to go new places, make new memories and hopefully still keep in touch. :]
On a more light-hearted note, I’ve been taking film photos a lot this semester. I think it’s my way of having unfiltered memories (you can’t “delete” the bad ones and keep the good) in a physical form that I can hold on to. So there will probably be more posts like this for a bit. :]
These photos were all taken at our Naan-ties Party. We made and ate naan with rice and curry and watched 90s movies (specifically, Space Jam). Look at how plaid and apathetic we are!
I know most of you probably aren’t familiar with my friends, but my blog is like my diary so I have to include the photos that make me happy. :] Here are Hugh and my roommate Caro:
The drink of the night was the old fashioned~
Caro and Sam wearing light up hats (my dad gave them to me haha~)
And Caro finally got to live out her dream of playing an accordian. ;p
Please excuse the finger in the corner of a couple of photos.. I guess I forget I’m blocking the lense if there isn’t a screen to show me a preview haha~
Hope you’re all having a good spring semester!
spring break, whooO!
Time to get EVERYTHING donee
I’ve got a really exciting announcement for the coming new year; my new clothing line will drop!! More info and a giveaway to come very soon. ♥ ♥ ♥
I had originally planned on taking photos for an outfit post today.. but after having to bus home at 8pm (instead of getting to bike because it was raining), and not eating dinner until after that, I really didn’t feel up to it anymore. So I changed into comfy clothes and am putting off my schoolwork by doing everything else imaginable. :x
This webcam photo will be my last form of procrastination for tonight (I swear!)~
My roommate Caro and I decided that I have to wear this wig to class one day. But only if I wear the floral headband too - along with black clothing to ofset the ultra-sweet nature of fairy hair and flowers.
This wig was a $16 impulse buy from last year.. I’m trying to get myself to wear it out so that I can justify getting a black wig from Arda~
