Veganism

RANDOM STUFFChloe Gordon

My schedule this semester is pretty weird. I have no classes Mondays, which is absolutely amazing, and only one class on Fridays. 

As great as it is to have one class on Fridays, it happens to be during the prime dinner hours — 5 till 7:30pm. It’s awesome because I get to sleep in, but also super annoying because I’m sitting in class while all my friends are enjoying eating a nice fancy dinner at nice restaurants.

This past Friday my friends decided they wanted to continue their healthy streak and decided to go to a vegan restaurant that none of them had ever tried before. I was a little jealous so I asked them to bring me my food home so I could eat it when I got back from class. 

I left for my class when all my friends left for the restaurant, and I spent the next two and a half hours thinking about how much fun they were all having while I was stuck in a dull classroom on a Friday night. As I was walking home, I felt my stomach eating itself — I was literally starved. The first thing I did when I got home was run up to my room to drop off my backpack so I could eat my delicious vegan dinner as soon as possible. 

What did I see when I walked into my room? My two roommates literally rolling on the floor moaning in pain, sweat dripping down their foreheads, hands clenching their stomachs. They were in physical and emotional pain. Why? Because of the vegan food. Vegan food poisoning. 

It was like the bridesmaids scene when all the characters (except one) get food poisoning. It was bad news. I’m not kidding when I say that I stood in the doorway in shock, convinced that a prank was being pulled on me. I ended up being too afraid to eat my food and ate three and a half pieces of toast with cream cheese instead. Not the most fulfilling meal, but definitely better than rolling on the floor in absolute pain.

Moral of the story? Never eat vegan food.

Graphic Design Final

RANDOM STUFFChloe Gordon

I’m a pun aficionado. If you follow us on Instagram then you already know this, but I went (and am still kind of going through) a phase where every single caption had a pun about the picture posted.  I think I like puns so much because they make people smile and roll their eyes all in one. I like them so much that sometimes I find myself watching hours and hours of pun battles on YouTube. You say nerd, I say clever nerd. 

    Anyway, I took graphic design this past year and for our class final we had to create a series. This series could be absolutely anything. Our teacher gave us a few starting ideas but there were no rules except for each piece in the series had to be cohesive. I decided to take my love of puns and use that to inspire me for my project. We had to use something that we learned during the year, and I learned how to create these drawn graphics from an image. Originally I was going to make recipe cards, but I soon realized that that idea would take way more time than I had.
