Around Campus

I procrastinated for my Trends assignment, and ended up taking a bunch of the photos on campus, so I thought I'd share them here. Just people walking around campus in the morning :)

Intensity & Value Scale (Day 2)

Second day of class today. Second week of this quarter today. I wake up and dread the traffic down to Downtown LA and walk into class moody thinking it'll take forever for the next 3 hours to go by but before you know it, you're all caught up in mixing color dyes and wrapping the pieces of silk in plastic food wrap that you wish you had an extra 3 hours to finish up your second assignment. Geezus!

Textile and Color Management, this class literally goes by so quickly. It's one of "those" classes where you wish you had an extra hour or two because you could really use it. Thank goodness there are open labs.

The view of FIDM from the corner where I parked. Beautiful building isn't it?

How I was feeling.. .

We were assigned the "Value" and "Intesity" scales this week.

See ya next week!

Winter Quarter 2010

Hello my fellow FIDM Blogspot readers! I hope you all had a great end of the 2010 year, holiday and new year! Cheers to 2011!

Many of us have resolutions and there are those that we do accomplish and those that we do not. I, however, have made this blog one of my resolutions. I hope to publish at least 1 post a week so here's to my first post!

I am actually siting in the FIDM (LA) Library typing this right now! :)

Today was "my first day at school" again. I took 2 quarters off so it's kind of bizarre and new to be back again. I see a lot of new faces. Many of my fellow classmates+friends graduated last summer. I was suppose to but I came across an opportunity that needed me to take a break. I have 3 classes left and will be graduating this summer. You bet I'm excited!

So this quarter, it's Winter 2010, I am taking "Textile Application & Color Management". I'm a Merchandise Product Development major so a part of our program is to go through a series of "Fabric Idenfication" classes. These classes involve identifying endless fabrics, learning what the fabric is made of, what are the uses are the fabric, and more. This class is the 3rd level/stage and today which was the first day of class, dyed a piece of silk in different color dyes. Basically, we're suppose to make the entire color wheel out of the fabric and dyes. We were given red, yellow, and blue to make the entire color wheel. Class went by fairly quickly but I know that will most certainly begin to change next week, lol.

Good luck to all my current FIDM class mates and cheers to a successful quarter! As for my readers, here's to my resolution of having a post(s) for you every week!

Random photos time!

My "healthy" lunch.
The strawberry, raspberry, and blueberries yogurt parfait actually tastes REALLY good from The FIDM Cafe! Much better than McDonalds, lol! And it comes with a lot of granola if you're a granola lover like me!

And as I was leaving the library I came across this BEAUTIFUL roller backpack!
I love it!!! Where can I get one anonymous person who I took a photo of your backpack?!

Xo, Anna

The types who go to fashion shows..

"Fashion shows are jolly affairs. There's pulsating music, flashing lights and lots of people walking up to and down so you can see what they're wearing. Usually the types who go to fashion shows tend to be interested in what people are wearing, so everyone's happy."
