“It is not a record of rights and wrongs.”
I think as a good referral, or go-to. Even if it is so old. And some may think it is full of cheese. It rings true.
It does not envy
Dear Elise, you will get through this just fine. I believe you will. :)
Today i will set aside whatever bothers me and will be focusing on fixing my presentation.
… I need paper.

Why we find certain things beautiful?
Why we find certain things beautiful? According to Wilhelm Worringer, a German art historian in the early 1900’s, we are drawn to things or find things beautiful when they express innately something which we lack.
Now, I don’t always think this to be the only instance. Another possible means for us to find something attractive is if these are familiar to us, or reflect values which we would like to uphold.
Another is if an artwork expresses ssomething which reflects our very own personality, or perhaps a part of our personality which may be very much projected or not.
A person can also develop an attraction towards a particular art work if she does not have a sense of her own definition of what she finds beautiful and thus will follow whatever society or those commercial marketers say is beautiful. These are the sheep of society who simply follow trends of what is considered “beautiful”.
I want to be someone who can express in her creation what she feels, what she values and as well what she envisions to be better in function for the future. I want to bring out as well in things, what can be projected of their characterisitic, what can be enhanced, instead of entirely shunning certain elements that superficially seem “not cut out” to be “beautiful” or “appealing”.
I rather think it would be a challenge to see what can be enhanced in what we find ugly. Isn’t that something that drives us to imagine, envision and eventually create?

I am quite stressed out.
Happy that I got to purchase for myself some toiletries for the upcoming trip! The exfoliant worked with my skin and so now my face isn’t peeling anymore :D This is the Vitamin E Exfoliant from Body Shop. Hello to caramelized skin for graduation.
Among other things that ran through my mind today. I was just thinking about how much I think my dad and I disagree on certain things - with respect for the need for better livable working environment. I really think as someone who wants to eventually go through a phase of having her own place, it would be good to have utility areas I would really not mind using myself. I would go as far as ensuring and challenging myself to make the place a pleasure to use. It’s not like I should enforce such ideas to this household, so I guess I will just keep with suggesting and drawing what I can. They can decide for their own and I can just practice creating ideas for this and that. Win win.
I have been thinking about this a lot and I think that I will perhaps have to really post more. I think it should be a good way of reflection and hopefully lead me somewhere in a more focused manner.
In the meantime I need to continue feeding my mind and juicing it.
Things just don’t feel right.
I am in need of.
Almost the same; just a different approach. I find it interestingly similar with the design process. I cannot design properly without writing firstly or sketching firstly ans then “transcribing” all the ideas onto a soft copy. I think what’s important for design is learning when it is best to use what.
:) Which one are you?
“I have watched both of you through a lot of those years and I have seen your passion for riding. I secretly envied both of you. Both your love for the sport, and the oneness you shared with these beautiful animals. In my opinion, you two were born to ride, Nina and Sasa.”
- And then I started crying. I haven’t cried for thesis even if I’m so behind schedule, I have never cried over the distance between Enzo and I. But this? My first love, just like what Sasa said. The first first love? I will miss and love, always.
