The committee I created to increase attendance at our basketball games (see previous note) had its first meeting, and I think it went really well. I was surprised at the number of people who showed up because I hadn't heard back from a few of them. We had almost everyone there (the few who were missing were out of town or otherwise unavailable). The group brainstormed ideas, then we talked about options, and then discussed the sensitive topic of budget.
While meeting with a USAO alum and former basketball coach of about a million different schools, I realized I had a big project on my hands. I was going to increase the attendance at our basketball games. I want to double it. This just might be a huge undertaking. As the alum continued to give me suggestions, I was filled with this excitement and joy that I hadn't felt in a long time. This is my mission.
I was asked by Jessica and Kellie why I don't like Arial and I guess it is primarily a snobbery issue. The general reason is because it is Window's not as attractive knockoff version of the classic, my good friend, Helvetica. If you are not completely bored of typeface talk then you may understand a little more by reading these two articles. See excerpt here:
Every time I think of the terrible mess caused by the recent oil spills and the depressing state of the economy, I think it's a good time to be be immersed in beautifully mysterious and interwoven fantasy worlds. I definitely recommend the book Johnathan Strange and Mr. Norell by Susanna Clarke. Some patience is required to get into it. However, I was eventually taken completely in by the depth and credibility of the universe she created.
Hi, I'm Shayna Woidke from the Media and Community Relations Office and I hope I will get to know some really talented students through this project. It's known as Shayna's Crazy Animation Thingy around the office. It is really crazy and ambitious to think that we can get all the approvals, find the right students, agree on a concept, make original artwork, write a script, compose music, and have a compelling final product all by November. It's just crazy! The final goal is to give students a real life production experience.
