I cannot believe how fast the days go by. It is already November 1st and yesterday I purchased plane tickets to go to L.A. for Thanksgiving. (I should probably start planning my trip for Christmas as well…) Anyways, so it is also the start of NaNoWriMo and I have decided to do my part by writing a blog post every day for the month of November. I think that this is much easier of a task than my writer friends are undertaking which is to write 50,000 words a piece by November 30th. That is too much for me, but this I can handle.
My Halloween day ended up being so much fun. I received Quiddler in the mail from my friend Tim! It is a favorite game of mine and also of my Cloud Ninth housemates, and our previous copy was lost in the move. I was so excited so have it again and made everyone play it that night. It was awesome. Jason brought out his lappy, played music and kept score on a spreadsheet just like old times. Tim will be here tomorrow and much more Quiddler shall be played in celebration. *_*
Also that night, maiki and I went exploring and discovered the Pacific East Mall in Richmond. A classmate of mine told me about it and we were intrigued by the prospect of an Asian marketplace that was closer than San Francisco. We walked lots, but were pleasantly surprised to find how close to home it really was. We warmed up with hot tea and hot & sour soup and got some cream pan from the bakery. Maybe we can convince everyone to take a Cloud Ninth field trip to go sing Karaoke one night. That would be fun (hilarious!).
Today I worked on a logo for a bakery/cafe for my homework. I also have three more to create for my other class as well. I am not sure how I feel about logo and branding design work. It seems to be simple but it is really quite tedious. Thankfully I have another week before the other logos are due so I can focus on one idea at a time and really explore all the possibilities. It is fun for me, but I wonder how I will feel when I am working for a real client with real deadlines. Right now all of my assignments are enjoyable because I don’t have to stress too much. I figure this is just practice and portfolio building and right now that is fine with me.
