  • Robots - yep, read more about that in my passionate thing.
  • Installations for fine art. Like Tim Hawkinson. He does some badass installation art pieces.

  • FIRST - Seriously ADDICTED. That's not even a joke. I can't stop talking about it. It makes me happy, teaching people about it makes me happy, knowing that other people know about it makes me happy. And you, reading, right now, if you don't know what I'm talking about go visit
  • Blogging- I really like the idea of posting something and having it just exist out there forever in the digital world.
  • Pixel art - I started it accidentally actually. Someone had this really cool drawing in her signature of a forum I belonged to, and I asked her how she did it, and I just kind of got obsessed. I have HUNDREDS of pixel pieces, and I am always trolling websites to find new pieces I like and might be inspired by to make NEW pixel pieces.

  • BAD GRAMMAR and spelling. Omg, it makes me crazy. I can let go with typos or a few missed words, but if you start blogging with "Omg last night u was craaaaaazy," I seriously consider buying a shotgun and killing people.
  • Large groups where people don't get anything done. Working in a group can be fun, but when you work with like 50 people, and 3 people are working on the other project, why are the other 47 people sitting around?
  • When someone changes a good song right in the middle.
  • Being REQUIRED to wear heels or get dressed up for work.

  1. I think that you would be great in teaching. From the first class i understood that you are very good in communicating with other people. Because my English is not that great and I am very sorry for my Grammar, whenever you would say something i could understand it because you have many ways to explain what you want to say. I hope that you understand what I write above. Maybe you never thought about it but I really think that communication is very important and I had professors in the past that i could not understand what they wanted me to do in class. Again sorry for my English! :)

    Thanks Georgia - not to worry, you're doing great with your English. =)

    I considered teaching, but I get easily frustrated. I'm a little nervous about teaching people, because if they don't get it after like...the tenth time, I get annoyed.

    I wonder if that's something I could be taught - like finding new skills to be able to better explain something.

  3. Well, if the person does not understand what you are trying to teach him/her after the tenth time, then it is definitely NOT your fault!!! I'm pretty sure you are going to be a great teacher as long as you like what you're doing!!!
