V-Day package

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

I guess I'm a little late talking about Valentine's Day, but this is the first chance I've had to blog.

On Valentine's Day, I went to lunch with my roomie, Melissa. We went to a delicious Asian restaurant. I like the restaurant mostly for its design. One wall has a waterfall built into the wall (but the food is good too)!

That evening, I braved the crowds and went to Olive Garden with my friends Bridget and Cara. We were told we would have to wait two hours, but it only ended up being one hour.

I got my Valenine's package from Shawn on Monday, and when I opened it the first thing I noticed was that the box smelled like him. The second thing I noticed was his homemade confetti. He had cut up strips of patterned paper and put it in the box. I thought that was such a cute touch! He also made me two cards and bought one. One of the cards he made he sprayed with his cologne, and that's why the box smelled like him.

He sent me my favorite candy-Sour Patch Kids. He also sent me a heart shaped box of Ghiradelli dark chocolate. I opened the box, and he had written on a piece of paper, "I love you more than..." On each piece of individually wrapped chocolate he had written something: science, movies, the beach, podcasts... I thought it was really sweet:) I don't want to throw any of the wrappers away.

He also included some individually wrapped packages of gummi bears, another of my fav candies. On each wrapper of the bears, he had written adjectives that are descriptive of me. Some things he wrote were "creative, petite, beautiful..."

I enjoyed reading about everyone's Valentine's Day. I had a great one! I just wish we could be together on Valentine's, but my package was a nice alternative.

Some pictures

My computer still isn't fixed, but my wonderful roommate has been letting me use her computer. Look what I got in the mail yesterday! This beautiful sweater from Tania. She was kind enough to mail it to me. Thanks Tania! I love the sweater!

Here are some pictures from the ASID career day. We got a goody bag that was filled with neat stuff. My favorites were all the notepads.

One notepad even looked like a fabric book.

3Form was giving away these cool bracelets. 3form isn't a company that makes bracelets, but the bracelets allowed to see and feel what Ecoresin is. It's very cool stuff. I think I'm going to have a wall made out of 3form in my art gallery project.

Here I am standing next to my award winning project and holding my check.

When I posted about my portfolio, a few people wanted to see pictures of it, but I'm a little nervous about putting my projects on the Internet. This picture allows you to see my layout. I took the photo from the cover and cropped out a little piece. Thanks to my readers who voted for my best photographs. I put the photos with the highest votes on this page. I have tried and tried to rotate this picture, but blogger keeps unrotating it.

I'm a winner!

I have some good news and bad. First the bad: my computer is still sick. Computer Services called me today and told me to pick up my computer because they were unable to fix it. They suggested I get a new operating system. Whatever that means. I'll be calling my computer scientist dad tonight. I think he needs to visit me again. Last time he visited, I got a new hard drive. I'm sorry I haven't been doing very well with commenting on blogs. It's hard to do without a computer.

The good news: this weekend was the ASID (American Society for Interior Designers) South Central Career Day. Schools from Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi were there, as well as professionals from those states. I entered three projects into the competition, and I won second place in the residential category for my Studio Apartment/DuBois Residence project! I got $50 for winning!

I shared a hotel room with three other people. One other student and my two professors. I though it might be awkward to spend the weekend hanging out with my professors, but it wasn't at all. This trip probably ranks at the top of the list for Best College Experiences. I know I'm a huge dork for admitting that.

On the drive back we stopped at McDonald's for dinner, and we discussed internships/my future after graduating. My two professors think that I would make a great interior design professor and suggested that I stay at my current school and get an MFA. If I did that I could still be the student worker. It sounds like they really want me to stay. They've both told me that I'm a great student worker. Ms. B (the new professor) told me that our school has the best organized materials library out of all the colleges she's been to. That's so nice to hear!

I've talked about my love of organizing on this blog several times. One of my jobs is to organize the interior design materials. I love getting paid to do something I love.

Apparently I also have a certain reputation among the freshmen students. Yesterday I went to my 8:00 class and saw a student who I didn't recognize working in the materials library. I assumed she was a freshman because I don't know many of them. As I was setting up my laptop in the classroom, Freshman Girl walks in and asks, "Are you Rebecca?" I told her yes, and then she quickly says, "I don't want you to get me because I didn't leave all those fabric books out on the table. They were already out when I got here. Anything I take out, I put away. I don't want you to get me because someone else left those books out. I just didn't want you to get me."

Do not worry Freshman Girl, I won't "get you". I wish that I struck fear in the hearts of all the freshman students. Maybe then they would pick up after themselves.

In other news, tomorrow I'm going to Hattiesburg for the ASID career day. I'm entering three projects in the competition. My school is entering something in each category, so hopefully we'll win something!

We have started our next interior project. This semester we're designing an art gallery. Yesterday we visited the art museum to check out their ceiling system and track lighting.

My laptop is temporarily residing at Computer Services. I think it has a dreadful virus. I hope to get my laptop back soon, so I catch up on everyone's blogs.
