Getting Close to Graduation

So I know that this blog is somewhat of a journal of my life and while in the past I was filling it to fill it, talking about things of little significance, I feel something of an obligation to my future self to preserve this thing as a book of memories to look back upon.

I am getting close (a few months) to graduating with a degree in Advertising from Grand Valley State University.  I want to talk a little about my GVSU experience.  I have met some amazing people and had interesting experiences.  I have opened my mind to new things.

As I sit here in the brand new library that GVSU has built I enjoy the generosity of the incredible donors that made this possible.  Free market capitalism is an incredible thing when the most successful people are willing to share with everyone else in the form of patronizing institutions like GVSU.

I am really hoping to get a great internship which will lead me to a great job after graduation. I am willing to move around, but a big motivating factor is a high salary and a fun environment.

Listening to this awesome song:


So this is just a random idea.  What if some religious cult that had like 50-X00 members was the only religious body that actually "got it right"?  Or even if the Pastafarians(look 'em up!) were the ones that were right about religion.  Can you imagine hell as being filled with a crap ton of people, good and bad, and heaven is like an awkward pool party with something like 25 people standing around talking about how they can convince more people to see the truth in the Flying Spaghetti Monster so they can join the super lame party.

Just a thought.

Pottery Barn

Going to do some temporary work at Pottery Barn starting next week.  Excited.

Hey.  I wanted to remember a major life event that happened two weeks ago today.  Unfortunately on the day of and on subsequent days I was unable to really use the computer.  I had a concussion.  My first and hopefully last.  It's very upsetting being unable to do certain things and remember certain things.  I'm getting rapidly better but I just hope that I will make a full recovery.  I'm speaking with the Spectrum Health Post Cuncussive Clinic and Mild Brain Injury Clinic about treatment soon.  I'll keep you updated.

The future

As I fall asleep tonight, I'm filled with self doubt.  Yes this is posted at 6am.  I'm going to bed late.    Where will I be in 10 years?  Will I be happy?  I just don't know.  I am thinking about the future more and more as I age, not that I'm particularly 'aged', but still.  I wish that I blogged more often.  I'm doing a lot of facebooking now.  Perhaps I will shift more to this in the near future.  I'll just have to think about it more.  Does anyone still read this?  I hope so.

Penn State Thing

Well.  I wanted to take a minute today to talk about the whole Penn State thing.  It's disappointing to say the least that all of this is happening.  I wish that Joe Paterno had gone to the police when this originally happened.  It would have prevented a huge amount of grief on his part.

Steve Jobs' Death

Saddened by the news. Love this quote.

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” – Apple Inc.

Zhengs left for China

Well Fan and Peter just left.  Lately, my blog posts are so rare that they seem to only occur at major points. I suppose you could call this a major point in the scope of this year at least.  They are headed back to Fuzhou until August 31 at which point they will return.  I am going to miss them a lot and I regret that I won't be able to see them on a daily basis anymore.  I have gained so much knowledge in this past year and I'm going to miss having them around. (Wait, I've already said that, right?)  It needs to be said multiple times.
The baby of course went with them.  I took pictures of them as they were packing up.  I helped them get the bags to the MetroCar.  I reminded them to take everything off of the porch.  A few minutes ago I heard someone bounding up the steps and I ran out to the stairwell hoping they forgot something.  Nothing.  I suppose my imagination must have gotten the better of me.  Wishful thinking perhaps.  Well they should arrive within two days and I will email them now and be ready to skype them later.
