Once in a while, you'll get a Facebook ad that will really make you go "What the fff..."
I think this one might take the cake.
First of all, I'm not sure what exactly is being advertised.
Is it a game? Some kind of creepy 3D chat program?
Are you talking about fairies-and-dragons kind of fantasy, or being-tied-up-with-an-apple-in-every-orifice kind of fantasy?
Second... WHAT IS WITH THAT BABY?
Does that image of a baby have anything to do with that advertised game, or is it a mistake?
Or perhaps that baby is supposed to be... seductive?
I mean, it is kind of in that "sexy cat stretching" pose seen all too often in movies and magazines.
Is this some creepy pedophile game, or do you just have the option of coming home and being a baby mama after your "steamy nightlife" escapades?
While on the train ride home from Delaware, I discovered that Blogger FINALLY has an app for iOS.
I can now blog from anywhere!
(Previously I would have to either use a computer, or struggle with the tiny scaled down version of the Blogger website)
This means more updates, at last!
See, back when I was at University of New Haven, I was always on the computer. I had a lot of time to update my blog with random stories, observations, and other stuff. Now that I'm a college that doesn't include housing, I could bring my laptop with me, but I prefer not to. It's just too bulky to bring around with me, since the desks here are small and most classes don't even allow laptops. When I do get home, I have cable with a DVR, a dog, and awesome non-cafeteria food. I'm definitely not on the computer as often.
To make a long story short, I now will be most likely updating a lot more often because there's always one thing I always have with me... My phone.
Even on the toilet.
Can I be any more blunt?
Ceramics class has become a downright obsession for me. I literally can't get enough of it.
Twice a week, for three hours, I get to play around with clay as much as I want. Of course, we do have big assignments, but we're also required to make what my teacher likes to call, "free-forms"... aka anything your little heart desires.
I've found the free-forms to be the most fun, especially because you can knock out up to three of them in one go.
And GLAZING! That's my favorite part.
It's not the actual process of glazing that I love most, but that moment when the teacher cracks open the kiln. I swear, it's like being a kid on Christmas day. Glaze is so unpredictable that you honestly have no idea how your piece will have turned out. That's what is most exciting to me, the surprise at the end!
Is it pathetic that I'm actually saddened by the approach of the semester's end? Probably.
I, however, am going to enjoy this luxury of creating stuff from clay for a grade while I still can. I sure as hell won't have this opportunity again anytime soon.
I'm hoping that by learning to code I can help Maddie out with her blog. Plus it's always good to try to learn something new. So far I've been teaching myself simple things: formatting, body elements, and the basics. I'm feeling pretty accomplished at the moment so I thought I'd test out what I learned today.
I've Been Away for a While
Last semester I studied abroad in Beijing, China. Overall it was an amazing experience. I returned to the States a few days before Christmas. Since then I've been working on a few other projects and continuing my studies, needless to say I've been busy. Sometime soon I'll try to publish a post about my experiences in China. I've got tons of pictures and a few stories to tell. Right off the bat I want to recommend that if you ever have an opportunity to travel abroad, take it. The world is worth seeing. Well I think I've practiced my code enough for now. 再见
