artsy fartsy

Well I am happy to say that it's been a successful first day of classes! My day started bright and early with a drawing class, then a basic design class, and ended at night with a graphic design class. Yep, it's been an artsy fartsy kind of day, and currently I'm loving it (I'm sure I'll take it back when I'm neck deep in art homework ...). For now, I am really excited to learn all I can about graphic design and art in general. I'm a studio art major (+ English) rather than a graphic design major, but I'm taking most of the graphic design classes just because that's the most interesting to me (other than photography and ceramics, which are the other two concentrations I'm taking), plus it's really applicable in this day and age. I can't wait to be able to take what I learn and actually use it in life.

I hope you have a great day!

Hello beautiful people! If you follow me on instagram, then this is old news, but I just dyed my hair purple! Last year at the start of school, I did the whole "sit in a chair in the bathroom surrounded by my floormates and have a dying party" thing and ended up with really fun purple hair, but that first color had more red undertones and I just dyed it once and let it fade back to my normal color. This time around, I did a lot of research on dyes and how to care for hair because I want to try to maintain the color, so this dye has more blue undertones. And I'm basically in love with it. It still catches me off guard when I pass by a mirror, but it's super fun and looks different colors in different lights and I've already gotten a lot of positive feedback, including one fun comment, "you are my hair inspiration!" It's really exciting and I'm super happy with the results.

Also I'm finally moved in to my new apartment and will be starting classes bright and early today. It shall take a bit of time to get into a normal schedule, so things may be kind of quiet around the blog for a couple of days. But all in all, it's really good to be back in Oregon.

Have a great day everyone!

sponsor introvert's introduction!

Introvert's Introduction is changing the system for ad spots, so sponsors and friends, please check out the sponsorship page for details.

I'm switching over to paypal because passionfruit, as many of you know, now costs money, and since I don't make enough money from this blog to support that, I'm discontinuing my account until I do make enough. I know money as it relates to blogs is a touchy subject, but I put many hours into doing this (doing it first and foremost because I love to do it, and if I never made any money I would still do it), and I'm also a college student trying to afford school, so it only makes sense to try to make money in the things I'm passionate about. I hope you understand, and I hope you consider supporting me and Introvert's Introduction today.

Have a great Monday!
