I went to History 417 which is probably the most interesting a history class can be and I still was fighting sleep. I used to like history but I have taken 7 history classes... seriously what more history does one need to know... I actually could take 3 more and be a double major... but I am not going to that... no way. I then ventured over to Woods Hall to Art 218. This is my photography class... I made some really cool prints today. The assignment I am currently working on is called "Experimental". Basically, I get to take prints and negatives I have already used and develop them in new, slightly more exciting fashions. Like solarization and diffusion... and making them be negative and opposite from the original. It's really quite interesting. I will try and post a few on here... my favorite ones are still in Tuscaloosa though. And then after that... I walked over to Reese Phifer Hall. This is my favorite building on campus. It's my college! There I had a group meeting with my APR 422 partners. I am really loving this class. We are getting to make an entire advertising campaign from scratch about Moe's Southwest Grill. (too bad i HATE Moe's... i always get sick ... i just hate it...anyways...) We are on the final portion. Before we actually get to start making ad layouts and designing new products... hopefully one day they will be using my group's ads... keep your fingers crossed! I get some gift card or something for life if we win... my brother pretty much can't wait for this. He is in love with some Moe's.... eww. After my meeting, I then departed for my long journey home.. i swear I think the road home is longer than the road to Tuscaloosa. Seriously.
When I am driving I think. When I say I think ... I mean I think a lot. Really random things... one day I am going to think out loud and record myself so people will actually understand that I really am "that random". I was thinking about how I am graduating in May.. but I have not even started to seriously look for a job! Christmas is less than 2 months away.. and I have not a dollar to my name! I will be 23 in 23 days... and that blows my mind! 23...eww it does not even sound fun at all.... I think 23 is a nicer way of saying OLD... without just putting it out there! I listened to a cd the entire trip because all that was on the radio had either to do with McCain or Obama or both of em or their running mates or taxes or abortion or whether or not God made the sky blue or was it really a more lavender tint... seriously I am OVER the election. Over it. I cannot wait to march my happy tail down to city hall tomorrow on my lunch break...vote... go back to work and wait to hear who wins. And celebrate (regardless who actually winds just for the pure fact I won't have to hear about the election anymore!!!) At this point, I just want it to be over. OVER... I know I sound irritated. I am. I can no longer hide it. I mean I couldn't even walk across campus today without someone handing me a flyer or attempting to stick a sticker on me. I slapped at one dude. He did not fully understand what I meant when I said "no thank you" to his offering of an Obama over McCain sticker. No means no. Even when it comes to random stickers that end up on the ground all over campus that the poor yard guys have to peel up off the cracking sidewalks. They should really outlaw stickers unless they are in the form of a houndstooth hat, support an university or team, and ultimately end up on a vehicle. That's my thought about stickers. Anyways then I get home, after stopping by Shelley's to eat Thanksgiving dinner. (It as seriously like Thanksgiving on a random Monday....thanks again!!!) And I am now bloggin' cause the time change is killing me....
Anyways the whole point of this rambling was to tell you I am excited about my Moe's campaign (even though I hate Moe's), I wanted to share some of my new photography experiments, stress the fact I am over the election, and that i think stickers are stupid. :)
The first image is solarization. It takes a lot of prints to finally get it right. This one is still not right but I gave up on it and moved on... it turned out kinda cool.
The second image is a negative print of my original print.
The third is diffusion. I placed a wet paper towel over the paper when it was under the enlarger.
And the last print is a double print. It took FOREVER to do this. But I like how it turned out. RD (Ryan) has no seen it yet. He is obsessed with the picture of his gate so I think he will like this one too.
