I had my first lab in the photography class today. We were taught how to make photograms. I don't think I made a great one, but what I like about the picture was the tiny dark figure of a toy frog. It was a gift a friend got for me from New York.It looked out of place in the image, but it certainly sparked some curiosity. Unfortunately, it lost a leg.

I have my assignments for journalism and communication due the next few days. I am supposed to write about how I feel about advertisements and especially about those that "worked for me". I am certainly going to write about my experience in Times Square in New York City, where one seems to be attacked by advertisements everywhere.

I am a kinda broke, but I bought four books today! I am supposed to save up and look desperately for a part time job, and I ended up buying those books because of some compelling urges. Silly urges! Those titles are 1. Elective Affinities by Goethe 2 The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers 3 The Age of Reason by Sartre 4 Islam, a short history by Karen Armstrong.

A good friend of mine from the coop is leaving for Washington DC tomorrow. She is from China and found a job almost immediately after she graduated from the masters program in urban planning. One of the lucky few! Will certainly miss those interesting moments with her!
