Young 20 something, design student, idk, w/e.
I’m looking at fonts in use and thinking about fonts (trying to sleep but thinking about fonts).
And I’m feeling really tired of gothics right now. Just working on a project using Adobe Caslon was so nice. It’s just beautiful. I feel like lately it’s been a lot of looking for hot new fonts, which is good and all, but after using something so old and classic and remembering how lovely it is. I just want to sit and set some long form type in a nice transitional or old style serif.
That would be really lovely.
I’ve been spoiled these last couple days and have come home early and left home late.
All I want to do is hang out at home and listen to music.
That’s all I want right now. To sit at home all day and just listen to music.
So close, we’re so close to being done school and for summer to be here and then I can hang out and do nothing for days. (While of course looking for jobs, because that’s a thing I need to do. frick)
This is why I can’t work from home. Because my apartment looks pretty tidy because I’m never home to mess it up, but there’s just dust everywhere and then there are things that need to be cleaned and I just get distracted cleaning.
But I have to work from home this morning because I don’t have any clean underwear anymore so I had to do laundry.
"Sure! I can do all these things, what’s 12 – 14 hours a day at school?"
Nope. I always forget in doing that I end up neglecting my outside of school/work needs.
What ever, 2 more weeks and then it’s all down hill. 12 more days until my grad project is due and I can slowly adjust back into living at home.
I’m a gross human.
sometimes it hits me that I was in a six year relationship with someone.
How is that real? How is that not some lie someone told me once?!
Because really that is CRAZY. How insane. Teens are crazy.
WHEN DID THEY ADD POKEMON TO NETFLIX!?!
so what do you think of furries or furry culture?
what views of yours would you consider most leftist? most fascist?
what emoji are your favorite and why? give a detailed explanation for each answer.
I feel like I haven’t taken a break today but also I feel like I haven’t done anything today.
Ever since I got to Baltimore, the way I see a lot of things has changed, including things like design, the queer community, race & class, etc. In particular, I realized how I experience my Asian culture and heritage has changed drastically. Race has never been something that I’ve researched or thought about because I’ve never felt it was as relevant to me as topics surrounding queerness and gender (so please excuse me if I write something that may be politically incorrect or possibly offensive). Oftentimes, I’m not even sure if I use the word “Asian” properly- am I erasing and generalizing by referring to myself as an Asian, or should I be more specific and say Taiwanese? Am I even Asian, or should I just say Asian Canadian? I don’t think I can even say that sometimes… I’m just Canadian, really. I’m not sure. As you can see, I feel extremely confused about this all, and almost like I’m experiencing being Asian for the first time here in Baltimore.
This is a thing I think about so much! Race is a thing I think about weekly?
Esp being mixed race and westernized but not from Canada. There’s a lot of “where are you from?” and I feel misunderstanding of my background because of all these things.
I never feel asian enough, but I’m never white enough. I go through feeling more asian phases and feeling more white phases. Even more so being westernized and never have gone to the Philippines or nor do I speak Tagalog/Filipino.
Raccceeeeee. What a mess.
