First Day of Class

I had my first class tonight, a studio class. I didn't know what to expect. The whole semester will be devoted to working with a single client, The Cleveland Sight Center. We won't be designing a logo or a website or any sort of visual concept, we will be helping to institute a system with the function of attracting 25 organizations in North-East Ohio willing to employ people who are blind or visually impaired. Work that is unfamiliar territory and that will have a major impact on many people's lives. I am very intimidated, and that's not a casual statement (my first day and I am wondering if I am in over my head). I don't think I have much to bring to the table; but I will work hard and do what I think is right; so if I am not successful or popular at least I will be respected.

On a lighter note, the town of Kent is an awesome place with lots of trees. Too bad I can only enjoy them for a few more weeks. Also, today I had my first visit from back home!

Panther and Big Mac

This is the far end of campus. Yes, this corn field is on campus.

Nice little spot in the middle of town where I spent about five hours reading today.

A.k.a., The Slinky Book. Required reading for my 
studio class, just finished today (three more to go).

The Grapevine-LLama-Flower-Couch Center of Kent. 
Seriously, your guess is as good as mine.

Yes, Ben, Swenson's burgers are delicious. Thanks for the tip!


  1. Don't be have PLENTY of talent and intelligence to bring to the table. KNOCK EM DEAD

  2. What an awesome project! i think you will get into the flow and your intelligence and genuine quality of character will be more important then anything else.

  3. I have faith in you. You are more suited for this than you realize. The campus looks beautiful!

  4. Facing this stuff on my own up here it means a lot to know I have friends who believe in me.
