Creative Projects... Oh How I Miss Thee

I just finished up editing a Vietnamese video project. From this, I realized that 1.) iMovie 2009 is fun, 2.) it's rewarding in the end, and 3.) I miss creative projects like this.

Somehow this leads to me feeling excited about taking on creative projects after I graduate. I can't wait to work with personal visual projects, from more vector art to Flash Macromedia. I can't wait to pick up my pencil-deprived drawing pad for a flip. I can't wait to take on amateur photography at scenic spots. I can't wait to read for FUN (I got a list of books going already).

Although I've been stressing out about not securing a job by now, I know it will come and I will be okay. So for the mean time, I'm trying to appreciate what is "securely" good to come! ;)

SF Date w/Alice, Tony, & Silvia

Last Sunday, Alice, Tony, Silvia, and I ventured off to San Francisco at 11AM. We first went to Shanghai Dumpling King and had a good wait until we got a table. One of the new things I tried was this minced beef noodle thing, in which I thought was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! :) The flavor was a median of savory and saltiness. I now want to go back for 3 things: xiao long bao, sugar egg puff, and the minced beef noodle! Yum yum yum.

Noodles embedded below. Yum!!

Afterwards, we went to SF Japantown. I thought we would spend a maximum of 1 hour there, but 3.5 hours elapsed somehow. We saw many cute things and gave into such cute persuasian by purchasing and pinching our wallets. I saw some things I really liked but couldn't bring myself to buy it, so instead, I took pictures of them! Hahaha :P

SF Japantown!

Having fun w/the cardboard thingys

Cute GREEN wallet... I didn't give into buying it though >< Stitch Bentos

Postcard Stamps!

Pomegranate, Star Fruit, Kiwi, Papaya, and Guava

I went to the Post Office today to mail off a postcard and a letter. In addition to that, I bought 10 postcard stamps. They're of the exotic/tropical fruit collection or something. I like! :D

How Berkeleyans Think

I realized today that many Berkeley students think the same, in that we're very anal retentive. Thoughts of, "how much of our grade will it be?" "when is it due?" "what's the average, SD, etc.??" I also like how the professors at Berkeley know how we think, and answer our questions before we can ask them. For example...

Scenario 1:
I got a bSpace announcement about an optional assignment. The fact that it was optional was repeated twice at the start and at the end of the assignment. Each disclaimer was 3 lines long, in CAPS.

Scenario 2:
I got a midterm back today with a 68 plopped on it.


The GSI announced that the average was 78, generally pretty low for an average.


Although she had no idea what the SD was... geez, I was having a heart attack about scoring 10 points below the mean. 

Then I found out you're supposed to add your short answer points to the score. Putting me at 7 points above the average. *phew*
