gray scale

Yesterday I bumped across an article about the old mac OS design, it’s very interesting because it compares with things nowadays that have being became more and more distracting and addicting, all due all this talking about attention engineers and social media.

What I most liked about it all, was that some people are starting to turning their screens gray scale,  in a way to cancel all this distracting design, and it seems like a really great idea, that I turned mine gray scale yesterday (how). It feels very light and clean, and somehow calm, i’m excited about how next weeks will go.

Card for László

  Recently, I’ve been getting closer and closer to delete my facebook. Last month, I read an article about the data facebook and google collect from all their users, I managed to download and take a look at mine. Not that I feel that they’re going to destroy and bring a huge chaos to the world due holding my data, but I just find it’s too much free information I give away about me for not much in return.

I was already up to the idea of stop liking and commenting more, due the whole more humanity interaction and the logarithm boycott. But for me it’s still not enough, it’s as if i’m always so far away from everyone there and it doesn’t feel like real interaction.

So I decided that  i’m going to ask all my friends their address, e-mail and telephone and make my agenda, I already make bullet journal, so what’s the difference? It sure brings me a bit excitement the idea of call them more and send them handmade cards, so I can put in use some learning from the pop-up classes.

As Google’s alternative, I’ve been using Ecosia for searching, Moovit to public transportation search and when it’s something very specific I draw a little map, everything is going up pretty well.

edit post-publish: I’m very satisfied of how this post came out nice with those little drawings, it reminds me of my school notebooks. :>

immunology study

I’m so grateful that this semester I was finally able to pass at immunology, it was full of highs and lows, a bunch of confidence, lack of confidence and slaps at the face.  Things going well so far, but it’s such a shame that to finish my Biology BSc I don’t get much time to draw lately. Now at the next semester it’s going to be monograph’s time hehehe.

state of routine

Oh my, this week I had to get myself prepared to my second immunology exam, not that’s such a big deal or something impossible, but it was intense. Sometimes I feel so busy and so “full-glassed” about everything that I plan, that I just want to disconnect buy some nice shoes and be just pretty. But I ain’t have no shoes’ money for now so we gotta keep doing it.

mindset

Today I watched this interview with Patrick Smith, very nice, especially when he talks about his idea process and how to approach things in little steps. And for now I’m going to take a full reading at The Fundamentals of Animation, until now it talks nicely too about the whole mindset and process without being to protocolish.

And I realized that I won’t be able to apply for the Animation Workshop this year, which was in my plans, and makes me a bit sad, but who knows? That means I’ll have time more time to study and to create something to maybe send to a festival.
