Feeling a little depressed

Saturday, January 24, 2009

Today is one of those days where I just want to sit around in my robe and eat heart shaped gummies. Actually, that's not what I wanted to do, that's what I did. It's been a weird week.

It started off great-I was the first student who finished her portfolio. And it doesn't have a single mistake! Both of my interior design professors checked it over, and I am so happy that I don't have to reprint any of the pages.

I might have completed one thing, but my to-do list keeps getting longer and longer. I'm adding more things than I'm crossing off. We learned how to use a new program this week. Google SketchUp. It seems easy enough to do the easy stuff. But I'm at a loss with the hard stuff.

Last semester I found a designer on Etsy who made me some business cards and a letterhead. I really like how it all turned out, but my professors told me that I have to come up with my own design. The whole reason I found a designer was because I can't come up with any ideas for business cards and letterheads. This has to be done ASAP because next week I'm mailing out resumes and portfolios to different firms.

The absolute best part of this week (please note the sarcasm) was hearing that the girl I never, ever thought would find a boyfriend (the girl doesn't even bathe!) is now engaged. I think I'm just going to avoid getting on Facebook. I'm tired of seeing all these engagements. You know what really makes me mad about the Girl Who Doesn't Bathe? She and her fiancee have only been dating since October. And they're already engaged. She's the same age as me. She's graduating the same time I am. Except she's engaged and I'm not. It's just a tiny bit depressing that I've been dating my boyfriend for three years and I'm still not engaged. And it doesn't look like it's going to happen any time soon.

  2. I hated that feeling. But, what is right for them (or, stupid, I guess) isn't always right for you. I still can sympathize.

    Hope you have a better day!

  3. I'm sorry you're down in the dumps. :( I hope you're feeling a little better tomorrow!

    So stinky girl is engaged? Whoopty do, at least you don't stink! ;)

    Enjoy your single time while you have it. Before you know it, you'll be someone's ball and chain! Lol! I do understand where you're coming from, and can sympathize! Hugs from CT!!

  4. I'm with you on the engagement thing--Rob and I have been together for 6 years and I have no idea when we'll be engaged. Take heart in the fact that anyone can get engaged, you know? It doesn't automatically mean that they are great together or that they have a deep and abiding love. You know that your relationship is strong, with or without a rock. And I agree, at least you don't smell bad!

  5. I'm sorry you're feeling so down. I know how you feel. Jon and I dated for over 4 years before we got engaged. I moved down to AZ before I even got a proposal, which made me nervous, but I put my faith in the relationship. Lucky me it worked out! Things will get better. Hope you're days are better. Lots of hugs!

  6. haha, "Girl Who Doesn't Bathe"! priceless! i had class with a guy who'd come in barefoot, or in pink Converse All-Star sneakers; wearing small, kelly green gym shorts or AC/DC pajama pants; often completing his ensemble with a pink polo & carrying a Hello Kitty notebook. and he has a girlfriend. there's someone out there for everyone, i guess. so you probably shouldn't be so envious... :c)

  7. I feel exactly the same way! I know that I should be happy for EVERYONE I know who's engaged... but some days, it just makes me sad.

  8. Hang in there! (And good call on the gummies. :)

  9. hey girl,
    i am seriously the queen of watching my friends get engaged. Chris and I have been dating 6 years and we're not -and given our current situation, it's not happening any time soon - I've seen girlfriends of his friends come and go, get engaged and married and I'm still here.. just his girlfriend.

    Some days i'm alright with it, but others i'm not. It's a terrible feeling but just wanted you to know that you're not alone. Please feel free to email me about thsi ANY time you want... i understand completely

  10. I hear ya, that to do list just keep growing and growing and...

    I'm sorry things are rough, but this is the last time you'll have to deal with some of these issues (like Professors) because you'll be done with school soon - so that's a positive!

    I wouldn't worry too much about the engagement. I'd rather have a marriage that lasts than "beat" everyone down the aisle.

    (But I still agree, it's annoying)

  11. "The Girl Who Doesn't Bathe"--sounds like something I would say! I totally get the frustration. That seemed to be the story of my life for the longest. But, knowing Shawn, he will come up with an amazing proposal (if it's meant to be)! Hang in there!

  12. Hang in there. And I completely agree with Caitlin. Anyone can get engaged, but that doesn't mean it will last.

    And I've always cheese products to be the most satisfying on depressed days. But hey, to each their own, right?

  13. Well, I think you know I can totally empathize about the engagement thing...

    Check your library for the book I posted about on Saturday, and read the first 4 or 5 chapters. I really think it might give you a new perspective on how you're feeling about the whole engagement saga.

    My advice is to talk to Shawn about how you're feeling about things. Just have a conversation. The thing that I refused to do was never bring up the subject. Engagement is about two people deciding to get married, not one person offering marriage to the other. Just my 2 cents.

    Hope you feel better soon! The whole letterhead thing is annoying - you're an interior designer, not a graphic artist, right? Sometimes the little meaningless demands of school can make you crazy - but the end is in sight! :)

  14. good luck coming up with a design, I'm sure it will be kick ass.

    everything will fall into place when the time is right. Sounds so cliche and I'm sure isnt the right thing to say but it does tend to happen.

    I hope your mood improves! enjoy your bathrobe, gummy kinda day.

  15. Hi!

    I guess I'm kind of "de-lurking" myself =)

    Just wanted to say props to you for being an interior design major! That's a ton of work! I went to Savannah College of Art & Design (Atlanta) and i remember coming in the building at 3am and those interior design majors would be workin' their little behinds off!

    Good luck with everything!

    And its prob. not a good idea on stinky girl's behalf to get engaged so early. I dunno, maybe it works out for them but i've known 3 people who did the same type of thing and they broke up before they could even start planning for their wedding :-\

  16. Hi again!

    To answer your question, i was a Graphic Design Major at SCAD. =)

  17. You should definately be proud of your portfolio and you'll be engaged when you least expect it :] Hope you have a better day tomorrow! Gummy Bears work to <3

  18. Hi Rebecca, if you want that knitted t-shirt it's totally yours! I am so serious about giving it away! I can always undo it and use the yarn for something else, but I really don't know what I'd make with it. Giving it to somebody was my decision.

    It's about 14" long from the arm pit down, 33.5" around the bust, 33" around the waist, and 35" around the hip/bottom hem line. Let me know! You can email me at taniae dot fernandez at gmail dot com.
