i signed up for career satisfaction, not an early life crisis



I’m running around, trying to get things done. Yesterday was a small opening night for a Ryerson fashion student exhibition that I helped out with. I made the poster above and had a chance to assist with the curation of the whole affair. The setup team was great, especially since it consisted of the amazing folks that are a) in my curation class and b) that I am working on a research project with.

The event was held just over at the Textile Museum of Canada, which is kind of stellar since I am a volunteer librarian there. The loveliest part was getting to meet the wonderful lady that I volunteered with on Wednesday evenings before I had to move to a Monday day shift due to class conflict. She is a retired teacher and I absolutely love talking to her. I haven’t realized how much I missed our conversations until last night and I think I may switch back to volunteering every other Wednesday night this summer after the semester ends.

In other news, I am completely overwhelmed, floundering in a sea of confusion, while at the same time juggling responsibilities both new and old and trying to make it to the end of the semester without failing too much at life. Who am I to get paid to do work that I love (a silly little disaster girl who just finished two bags of Doritos in as many days).

Putting together a portfolio…

…always ends up a mildly jarring experience. In a fit of misplaced enthusiasm I decided to update a) my online presence and more importantly b) my book portfolio. And so after a series of misadventures it is well after midnight and I am only halfway through really finishing what I set out to do, but now I have this set of photographs that I’m thinking of printing tomorrow.


Maybe I started on a slightly off-key note: putting together or updating portfolios is always terrible in its own way, as it brings up all the tiny insecurities (mostly of the “am I good enough?” kind). Still, it’s an excellent chance to take stock of things you have and things you need to do whatever it is that you need to do.

Apparently I decided that one of the (many many many) things lacking in my book was a bit of accessory photography compositions, and I’m pretty happy with how they turned out.  Now to finish the fourth episode of The Hour, and finally sleep.

(Or not, hah)

What happens when you take lazy and add Assasin’s Creed…?

…you get this very lazy sketch of an outfit from the S/S 2012 Burberry Prorsum collection.

But then again, I made Pad Thai with a seafood mix today:

On a list of daily accomplishments, this balances out the art thing.


Still doesn’t excuse the fact that I am absolutely terrible at Assasin’s Creed, despite spending the better half of the day playing it.
