Say hello to the Biggest Fucking Drawing in the World by Erik Nordenankar. He did it by FedExing a briefcase with a GPS device in it through the world, and the trail of the GPS device drew out a self-portrait when plotted on a world map.

IS THAT NOT THE FUCKING COOLEST THING?!?!

Anyway. I'm back at this thing called school and I am tired and depressed (it is likely the former is influencing the latter). I think most people tend to have some kind of "back-to-school-blues", though; for me the last couple of quarters, it's been manifesting with this overwhelming fear that I'm not good enough at anything I do and am going to fail all of my classes. Even if they're just art classes. Because I'm nowhere near as good as I think I am, you see. No talent, no brain cells, no social skills, no worth. And there she goes again with her trainwrecks of thought! You should probably look away now if you want to be more productive that I ever will be.

ART228 is my Computer Applications For Design II class, and it's going to be heavily based in Adobe InDesign. Our three projects are 1) an information map about some event in Chicago history; 2) a conceptual travel guide; and 3) a collateral set (poster, postcard, and trifold brochure) for a Chicago nonprofit organization. That last project technically got assigned today, but then again since all of the project guidelines are in the syllabus, I guess you could say that the projects all got assigned today. All in ten weeks! Thank the Gods I only have three classes this quarter.

At 1:00pm I have my final liberal arts requirement (except for my experiential learning requirement, but I can fulfill that with a major-related class), which is my Honors senior seminar about identity in the 21st century. I have 8 books to read for that class, wtf?

Listening to the voice is unavoidable. It is always present and never shuts up. But you do not have to let it win. Continue to do your thing. Get through school. Work tirelessly and fearlessly and let us tell you the truth: darling, your work is AWESOME. When I got your card, I was so impressed by it, I ran and flagged down the Mum and the big sister to show them how good it was. My mom's never seen any of your work and she thought it was a professional's product. We've said over the last year, we're all so proud of each other for taking the real steps to make our real dreams and desires happen. This year brings you that much closer. Keep pushing sweetheart and keep your chin up. We're all here for you and believe fully in you. Much love, my dear. Hope to see you soon. :)

Unfortunately I found out later that it was all a hoax. :(
