All my life, I've been searchin' for something....

Yeah, I used Foo Fighters lyrics for my title. For this next part, pretend I'm rapping.

My name is Isaiah Trevino, and I've been a human for 17 years. All my life, I been looking for something, but haven't found anything here. What am I looking for, I hear ya ask? Well, explainin' this a bit of a task. I'm a hopeless romantic, special emphasis on "hopeless". But why am I telling you this? It's besides the point, it's pointless. Fact is, I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking for. Maybe I'm just tired of this town, gotta admit, it's a bore. Do I want love? Independence? Money? A place to call my own? Or is it a mix, maybe a purpose, a need to not be alone? But whatevs, this is it, this is the one. Seniors 2015, hopefully this year will be fun!

*drops mic*

Told ya I'm not a rapper. Here are some pictures of me for some reason.

Senior Year has been pretty chill so far. The most eventful day has got to be my first day, though. I went to the wrong class after lunch. I was supposed to be in economics, and instead I went to Astronomy, where there was nobody except one other girl who had also read her schedule wrong. When I realized what had happened, I went down to my economics class, only to find out that the room it was in was my English class and the teacher didn't even teach here anymore.

So, I went down to the library, and tried to explain my problem to the teachers, and then failed. The girl in front of me, who had friend-dumped me last year, stepped up and was able to explain to the teachers what my deal was. Which was kinda embarrassing, but whatevs. We made awkward chit-chat, and then everyone in my situation was told to go to the college and career room and wait out the rest of the period there.

(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

And then I went to Astronomy again.

Today we had to find a Photoshop tutorial that we want to learn this year. I picked a watercolor effect and some cool light effects. We're gonna vote on the ones we want to learn this year. Mine should be picked because they're really amazing and you can do tons of cool stuff with them. So vote for me! President 2K14!

The pen tool has a ton of different uses. Two cool things you can do with the pen tool? You can cut specific things out of pictures to paste in something else. Like, if I wanted to put Nic Cage's head on Batman's body, I could use the pen tool for that. You can also create custom shapes. If you're painting a picture from scratch in Photoshop, the pen tool makes things a lot easier.

Yesterday we created short quizzes in Kahoot! about what we've learned so far in Photoshop. Today we're taking each other's quizzes. I took Edward's quiz and got 4 out of 5 questions.

El Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead as it's said in 'MURICAN, was created in Mexico. It originally consisted of praying for and celebrating the lives of loved ones who have passed. Celebrated around the world today, people dress up in traditional outfits while wearing skeletal make-up, carrying out the traditions created in Mexico. Some places even have huge festivals dedicated to the day. El Dia de los Muertos festivities begin on October 31st and end on November 2nd.

Logo critiques

The Good

This logo represents the show perfectly. The periodic elements represent the chemistry that takes prominence in the show, and the decaying letters represent the lives of every character in the show falling apart over time.

It's completely unique and very memorable. When you see this logo, you know exactly what you're getting.

This logo represents the game perfectly. In addition, the change in case and the person standing in the "O" make it memorable.

It's very simple, but the shape of the "T" makes it stick out.

This logo is aggressive, yet heroic, reflecting the Avengers themselves. And the style of the lettering, especially the "A," make it instantly memorable.

The Bad

It's very plain and bland, and the combination of the blue and yellow don't look very attractive.

Also very plain, and more than a little outdated.

COLOR THEORY! What is color theory? Heck if I know.(jk, I googled it.)

The basic idea is that color theory creates a logical structure for colors. The three basic principles of color theory are color wheel, color harmony, and context.

The color wheel shows the different colors and hues in a logical order.

Color scheme is the choice of colors used in a design. A color scheme might be used to fulfill a specific purpose, such as invoking a mood in a viewer, or providing camouflage.

Some colors might provide an audience with a sense of patriotism if they use a red, white and blue color scheme. They could also provide a sense of calm by using blue colors, or aggression with reds and blacks, love with reds and pinks, or sadness with black and white, and so on.

What are you thankful for?

I'm thankful for this food I'm eating right now. Seriously, I'd be stone cold miserable right now if it weren't for my pop tarts and fizzy OJ. And I'd probably take it out on everyone else... because I'm not a morning person. But anyways, I'm also thankful for weekends. I get to sleep in, be a bum all day, sing loudly, dance like an idiot. It's the life. And don't forget my music. Gotta have my music. Oh yeah, and I'm kinda thankful for my family. I mean, I guess.

Over the thanksgiving break, I saved the world. Like, 3 times. The first time, I prevented a nuclear war with China. The second time, I punched a meteor heading for Earth into the Sun. Then I fought a giant robot army in North Korea. And won! So yeah, that's the good thing I did over break.

Infographic

An infographic is a graphic that displays information on a specific subject. This can include facts, statistics, costs, or surveys. The information is usually arranged in an attractive manner, using shapes and a streamlined arrangement that flows well. They are also accompanied by pictures, which are either taken from photographs or drawn in Photoshop. Infographics are used to display information in an attractive way so that it can be accessed by more people.
