Friends

I accidentally deleted my friends list, so if you're not on there anymore, that's why. AND, if you're not there and you want to be, just let me know.

People of the world

I present to you...
The Emily Martin font. Made with blood, sweat, and plaka paint.


What you say? There's only enough letters to spell phoenix? You are so simple-minded! What other letters would you ever need?

In an attempt to procrastinate my homework, here's the October First Friday pictures, poladroid style.

Shmappiness

Just a few things in the city that make me smile

  • The way everyone says thank you to the Orbit bus driver when they get off the bus

  • Seeing sleeping students in the Design buildings

  • Hearing the light rail chirp from my apartment

  • The peacefulness of the city in the early morning

  • Hearing ten different languages every day

  • Seeing someone I know at Target

  • The way my bus rides always seem like a scene out of a movie, one of those scenes where the music swells and you see the main character staring out the window as the lights outside blur past

  • Seeing someone pull off an ultra fashionable piece that I never could

  • No matter how weird I am, I can always find someone weirder

Bizarro

Look at this and tell it's not the weirdest animal you've ever seen.

Happenings

This man


this man


and this man


came to ASU last Wednesday for the event called "Is Faith Delusional?" It was fantastic. How amazing to see how God has blessed these men with SO much intelligence about faith. How amazing to hear the gospel of Christ preached to a full crowd at Wells Fargo arena. How amazing to learn more about my faith and the mighty God who loves me.

Two days before, a VisComm grad student shot himself in his professor's office at ASU. I was one of the first people to come upon the scene (the office is right around the corner from my locker) and I saw the professor running from his office before I realized what happened. I don't think I will forget the look on his face for a very long time. He is in my prayers, for I can't imagine the heartache he's been faced with. I am so very grateful nothing worse happened. The design school is very close knit and I can't imagine if the gunman had turned on someone else. Being so close to the scene made me even more grateful that nothing happened - God definately protected me that day!

I found out on Wednesday that the very professor that had witnessed the suicide had selected me for a scholarship! It's very humbling that he doesn't even know me but he saw my work and it was enough for him to pick me. I truly am grateful for the chance to be in the graphic design program. To have found the major that is perfect for me. It's so challenging and really pushes me farther than I think possible, but I've grown leaps and bounds. I'm so glad God has brought me to this place and I know he has a plan for me.

Now that I've written so much, I think I need to spice this blog up with a picture, eh? Enjoy.
