This week has been such an experience. That's really all I know how to describe it as. I swear, 70% of the time I was out of my comfort zone and, as they say, that's where the magic happens. And it did. I'm going to mostly focus on Wednesday because that's when I wore this outfit. This past Wednesday was typical for the most part -- Rachael and I ventured to Fremont because it's nice to walk and talk, plus I wanted to take outfit shots. We stopped into the Sun Shoppe and ended up both leaving with new plants... My little jade plant may have been the good luck charm of the day, people.
On the way back to campus, we stopped into the art center and Rachael pointed out that there was an SPU design/art alumni panel that night. I've been trying to say YES to more things, so a couple hours later, we returned to the art center for the panel (and we also dragged Kenneth along as well). Not only was the whole thing super interesting and informative -- it was also just awesome to see where previous SPU students are today. Many of them were recent graduates as well, and they already found jobs -- which is comforting.
The crazy highlight of the evening was when I realized that Moorea Seal (PNW jewelry designer, blogger, and more) was on the panel. I had NO IDEA that this women -- who's face I have seen all over the blogosphere -- went to SPU only a few years ago! So I introduced myself, we talked, and it was just awesome to hear what she had to say about graphic design, jewelry-making, blogging, and everything in between. If meeting her and absorbing some of her knowledge wasn't enough, Moorea featured Missing Lovebirds on her blog today! I would love for you to check out THE POST and Moorea-Seal.com.
To wrap this up, this week has been inspiring and motivating in a number of ways and I almost feel like a different person somehow. I can't quite explain it, but if anything, it has got me thinking and doing and I can say that I am proud of that. xxoo E
