This past week was definitely interesting. Being the last week of school, there is definitely excitement in the air. Students seem to be more interested in getting their tan started than studying for that last test (guilty as charged). This past weekend, the swimming pool called my name, and I spent a mini-vacation soaking rays with some friends. 

Classes this week were interesting, as usual. As a graphic design major, I'm lucky that I don't have boring classes. Most of them give me hands on experience, while the lectures provide valuable and interesting information. We even had a field trip this week to Santa Rosa where we got to see a huge printing company. It was awesome!

Another highlight of my week was a screening of the film, For the Bible Tells Me So, in the Campus Center. The discussion after led by my modern art teacher, Alex Carpenter, was very thought provoking. I have never seen the media room so full in the Campus Center. I appreciated PUC's willingness to facilitate discussion on major issues surrounding us today.

Overall, my week has been pretty calm. I've been doing some preparation for the 09/10 Funnybook and had some SA and AIA meetings. I don't think I've ever had such a calm week. I could definitely get used to this. Actually, I probably should. I'll be living and working at PUC for the first time this summer. I've heard stories of the desolate feeling that Angwin can give. However, free time and sunshine don't sound too bad to me.

Oh by the way, I thought I should mention that I'm writing this at 4:30 in the morning. For the past few months I've been working nights while going to school days. Quite an interesting combination, I think. I don't know--I just like to think that the lack of sleep contributes to some of my creativity in my artwork.
