So happy I finally received my new ‘grimoire’! This will be way easier for me to organize all kinds of information and I’m thinking of buying a rose gold chain and carrying it with me like a necklace! It’s 16GB so when I make meditation/energy work sound tracks I can bring it to gatherings too.
I feel like I can finally get a move on with organizing all my info lol!
2016 wasn’t great for e-books, with sales of the digital books continuing to dwindle, CNN reported. E-book sales in the United Kingdom declined by 17% in 2016, the
Publishers Association revealed, while U.S. sales in the first nine
months of 2016 declined by 18.7%.
books, on the other hand, had a pretty good year on both sides of the
pond. Physical book and journal sales went up by 7% in the U.K., while
U.S. book sales in the first nine months of 2016 increased by 7.5% for
paperbacks and 4.1% for hardcover books.
What’s more, the physical books people buy are seemingly more likely to get read. Read more (4/30/17)
Unhealthily obsessed with video games, anime, Disney, or some sick combination of the three
One of the most sleep-deprived majors, but also surprisingly chipper (there are exceptions)
Instantly recognizable by their triforce t-shirts or Pokemon Go snapbacks
In spite of everything, they have the highest population of straight-edge asexuals
If you weren’t straight edge and celibate before, then prepare to be, because you’re about to disown all bodily urges and dedicate your life to drawing cartoon animals
Like Animation majors, but cooler and much better taste in fashion. A little less tech-savvy, though
Comic book nerds
Painting & Drawing
A friend of mine once said, “People who love animation go into animation. Then they realize it’s a ton of work and switch to illustration. Then they realize THAT’S a ton of work and switch into Painting & Drawing.”
Highest percentage of colorful hair and weird tattoos/piercings
Listen to music you’ve never heard of
Smoke a LOT, asthmatics beware
Kinda stereotypical stoners or high level artsy kids, but not that pretentious
Somehow even more conceptual and indie than P&D
Behind the ceramics building, there’s a sculpture garden of all the sculptures of students past. Every night, the campus closes at 4AM. They say it’s for security, but I say it’s because the sculptures all come to life at that point. I mean, think about it. The whole “spooky midnight hour” is so cliche, I don’t know anyone who DOESN’T stay up till midnight at least once a week. But 4AM? That’s the true witching hour. The hour that belongs only to the living sculptures (and architecture majors I guess)
Frankly, the least hygienic major
All the males and most of the females have a rank odor after being sweatily hunched over the steaming hot forges for too long
Might be stoners, but the chill, easy-to-hang-out-with stoners
Probably the most like a real family. I always walk by the Glass Studio at night and feel the breeze of warm air from their fire, catch a riff of tasteful classic rock, and hear the echoes of genuine laughter from within. It must be nice to have a home.
I dunno, I’ve never met one. They put on some sick gallery shows, though.
In spite of Graphic Design as an art not being super emotional or indie compared to, say, Painting, the GD majors are probably some of the most tortured souls I’ve met
I used to be best friends/date a GD major and watched before my eyes as she was crushed by the world around her from Freshman to Junior year. Honestly I’m not sure if she still goes here. We don’t talk anymore, it’s too painful. I miss her, or rather, I miss the person she used to be. The person she used to be before Graphic Design.
I’m now roommates with a poor little GD Freshman, and I worry about her every day. Not as a lover like with the last one, but as a parent. What will happen to her? How long will she last? Cheyenne, if you’re reading this, run away while you still can.
Gets excited about fonts and kerning.
I don’t really know what kerning is.
Outdoorsy and nature loving hippies
The chillest major, I envy them
Photography IS hard work, don’t get me wrong, but come ON! You travel to a beautiful mountain spring, snap a few pictures, and call it a day
Never need to pull all-nighters
Seriously, I deeply respect Photography as an art and all BUT
Some of them are also outdoorsy and nature loving hippies, the rest are hipSTERS
“I don’t watch ‘movies.’ I watch Films.”
Apparently they have something of a drug problem, i.e., half the class comes in stoned
My friend Chris said one of the film teachers plays Porno he made in class, I’m not sure if he was messing with me or not
Oh boy, Architecture
The coldest hearts of any major
The only nice Architecture majors are the first years. After that last final, something inside of them breaks. At that point they either crawl to a different major in submission, or become as sharp, straight, and lifeless as the buildings which they spend so much time designing
They literally do not sleep
Seriously, I was pulling an all-nighter last week (since the Architecture place is the only place open 24/7) and I swear to god there was an entire CLASSFULL of the Architects up and jamming from 10pm to 7am. I tried to sleep, but the Architecture majors just wouldn’t quit. Also, it was so cold there. So cold. Cold from the hearts of fifth-year Architects. I’m bringing my winter backpacking sleeping bag next time.
Mostly foreign exchange students, especially Chinese, Indian, and Korean
I don’t speak Chinese, Indian, OR Korean so I can’t say much else
Vaguely like Architecture majors, only they appear to have a normal spectrum of human emotions
What is Interactive Design? Honestly I don’t really know. Like making Apps or some shmuck.
Graphic Designers who love themselves
Obviously they’re very very VERY nicely dressed
Calm, confident, but also have fun sides
Most of the textiles students I’ve met are just stop-motion loving Animators
I think the ones that aren’t are probably like grandmas that love knitting or something
Honestly I didn’t know this was a major until like last semester
The only furniture major I’ve met was this Norwegian dude who looked like a greek god
We were once assigned to do a group project together but then he blew me off to go surfing so I had to do it myself. Seriously? Surfing???? Like I’d be mad but that’s a cool reason to blow someone off. Hell, I’d blow people off surfing if I had the easy life of a non-animation-major
“We have a writing program?”
They’re cool though
Get really excited about books. I’ve read only about three or four books so I kind of just smile and nod while they talk
Seem genuinely interested in other people’s stories
I’m not entirely sure what this is
Passionate about social justice and teamwork
Disclaimer: No offense to any of them (except architecture majors)
*At California College of the Arts from my relativley limited perspective as an animation major who frankly has only had minimal interactions with the others

You were going to get one-click access to the full text of nearly every book that’s ever been published. Books still in print you’d have to pay for, but everything else—a collection slated to grow larger than the holdings at the Library of Congress, Harvard, the University of Michigan, at any of the great national libraries of Europe—would have been available for free at terminals that were going to be placed in every local library that wanted one.
At the terminal you were going to be able to search tens of millions of books and read every page of any book you found. You’d be able to highlight passages and make annotations and share them; for the first time, you’d be able to pinpoint an idea somewhere inside the vastness of the printed record, and send somebody straight to it with a link. Books would become as instantly available, searchable, copy-pasteable—as alive in the digital world—as web pages.
It was to be the realization of a long-held dream. “The universal library has been talked about for millennia,” Richard Ovenden, the head of Oxford’s Bodleian Libraries, has said. “It was possible to think in the Renaissance that you might be able to amass the whole of published knowledge in a single room or a single institution.” In the spring of 2011, it seemed we’d amassed it in a terminal small enough to fit on a desk.
“This is a watershed event and can serve as a catalyst for the reinvention of education, research, and intellectual life,” one eager observer wrote at the time.
On March 22 of that year, however, the legal agreement that would have unlocked a century’s worth of books and peppered the country with access terminals to a universal library was rejected under Rule 23(e)(2) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
You calmly strutted through the laughter-filled halls of Midtown High School with your textbooks clutched against your chest, sparing a genuine smile to the students who waved in your direction. According to the teachers and students throughout Midtown High School, you were considered to be an intelligent and well-respected student. You had grades above an A in every class and did not mind tutoring another student. You were also well-known throughout the school due to your spot on the school’s swimming team. Being properly raised by your parents, you’d grown to be very lady-like, calm, generous, and warmhearted. You enjoyed brightening up a person’s day and helping a person in need. Doing kind gestures would make your heart flutter in happiness and satisfaction. You cared so much about helping others that sometimes you would even forget to help yourself.
Shortly, you arrived at your locker and dialed the combination of the lock. Unlocking it, the first thing you saw was an old photo taped on the locker door—you smiled at the sight of it. The photo was of you and your best friend, Peter Parker. Your head rested on his shoulder, smiles displayed on the both of your features. The memorable photo was taken a few years ago. When his parents died, Aunt May and Uncle Ben had became his surrogate parents and took him in. When you found out about his parents’ death, you refused to leave his side. You two had been inseparable ever since. Even through the toughest times, Peter was always there for you as you were always there for him. It’s you and Peter against the world—together, you were invincible.
Most of the times, when you were over at Peter’s house, you two would just do homework, have deep conversations, or watch movies and cuddle next to each other wrapped in blankets. Aunt May would walk in to catch you two sleeping the night away together—cherishing the adorable sight by sneaking a quick picture. Aunt May and Uncle Ben were convinced that you and Peter were destined to be best friends, or even more, since the very start when you two had met in elementary school.
