Grad School: Art Skills Not Required

For the record, and this has nothing to do with this post, I read for an hour today and brain hurt. I am the worst student ever. Also, I wanted to make this post 2 terms ago when I took this class, but was too lazy to unroll my poster and take pictures. Seriously. If I end up with a completed thesis I will be surprised.

So, onto the post at hand. We took an intro to grad studies class and for our final paper, instead of doing a presentation, we had to make a poster which represented our research. My research was about social networking sites, mainly Facebook, and how they can increase social support and therefore increase self-esteem (WHICH WAS SUPPORTED, Huzzah!). Now, when it comes to the creative projects in school I usually shine through and do something that all the people who go after me despise me for (Remember that time I dressed up as Gabriel Garcia Marquez and had another student interview me as him, made a ten minute video tape about the history of Colombia, and brought a delicious spread of food for my senior project?). I wasn’t feeling it on this one. I mean, you wouldn’t really expect to do some arts and crafts for grad school projects right? Ehhhhhh. I think it is safe to say that only Mariko had the art skills one would want for this assignment. However we all passed with flying colors. And how could I not want to share this glorious piece of educational materials with the world. So without further ado, I give you my poster…

By the way, book on the left makes no sense. Book on the right makes even less than no sense.

Here is Brad, he is happy because he has a Facebook account and higher social capital:

But poor Chad hasn’t gotten with the times yet and has no Facebook account. Wah wah:

So there you have it. Apparently your terrible art skills will never leave you behind. It brings me back to elementary school when I couldn’t figure out how to round the corners and had to make like 6 Santa Claus faces before the teacher realized I wasn’t doing it on purpose. Common sense, pff, who needs it?
