Six Years Later (and a month, however who’s counting?)

Now we have now celebrated six of Dave’s loss of life days.  I can return in my reminiscence and describe how I used to be feeling surrounding the final six deathaverssaries.  The primary, I used to be in absolute survival mode and in a lot bodily ache with my busted disc that my solely aim that day was to outlive.  The second, was about essentially the most regular one.  The subsequent three have been have been depressing and unimaginable, however not due to grief. The subsequent was so wealthy, however it took an excessive quantity of vitality to protect the sacredness of that day.  And now this one.  12 months six. Personally, I feel it’s a good signal that I did not really feel so pressed to put in writing about it in any hurried method.

A number of months in the past, I did form of get slightly/lot panicky.  The dates have been lined up, simply as they have been the 12 months that Dave died.  The 12 months he died, college ended on a Friday and I used to be speculated to go in and assist with Spencer’s Kindergarten Christmas occasion.   The subsequent day we have been headed to Pagosa Springs, to ski and have fun Christmas on a Tuesday, together with his total aspect of the household.  Quick ahead to 2018.  This 12 months, college ended on a Friday, with Christmas events as traditional. We have been headed as much as Pagosa to ski and have fun Christmas, on a Tuesday, with Dave’s total aspect of the household.  I used to be beginning to really feel like I wanted one thing to be totally different or that one thing dangerous may occur once more, with every thing lined up so precisely the identical.

As Christmas started to creep nearer, I anticipated my fears to escalate, however they did the precise reverse.  I do not know if it needed to do with God’s continued whisper to me that HE is the SUSTAINER of my life and the lifetime of my youngsters, or if it was some EMDR work that actually helped surrounding this, however I think about it was slightly of each.  The truth is, I felt slightly over EMDR’ed probably, as a result of I used to be truly wanting ahead to the day in a candy manner.

Fact be informed, I truly felt virtually slightly responsible about feeling so OK with the day and even accepting  of Dave’s loss of life.  It was an unfamiliar feeling, for positive. Right here is my sample now. I’ve that unfamiliar feeling of being slightly too OK with Dave’s loss of life, so then I really feel responsible for about one second after which it’s rapidly adopted by slightly smile.  You realize why?  As a result of I’m 10,000% positive that Dave is so happy with me and our youngsters.  He is so proud that we’re shifting on and having fun with life.  He is so proud that I left an unsafe state of affairs, as scary because it was.  He’s so proud that even his loss of life does not have the identical maintain because it has previously.  He is so proud that we’re wanting ahead to the long run.  And he’s so happy with who I’m, who Spencer is, who Leah is, and who Macie is. (I am unable to make certain he is happy with Emmit, as a result of he REALLY liked Charles, the canine).  I simply comprehend it and I’m 10,000% positive that he would need it this fashion, as a result of DAVE WANTED GOOD THINGS FOR US!  I am unable to let you know how a lot I liked that about him and the way a lot that character high quality of his, helps me now.

So, on Dave’s loss of life day, we actually simply loved the day with the 4 of us.  We noticed the film, Ralph Breaks the Web  (I by no means would have chosen to see that film, however I liked it), we did slightly final minute Christmas buying, after which we went to a kind of pottery portray locations.  We painted plates with issues that reminded us of Dave.  Then within the night, we went dwelling and watched Christmas Trip, as a result of that’s what Dave and I did the night time earlier than he died.  I nonetheless really feel so fortunate that Dave and I had such a candy night time, the night time earlier than he died.  What a present!

On the high of Spencer’s plate, he added the quote,  “Did you see the Peak?” as a result of EVERY time it snowed on Pikes Peak, Dave would name
from work and ensure we noticed the snow up there!

My Dave quote was, “Earlier than we go, everybody wants to choose up
10 items of trash.”  This quote is significant to me, as a result of till
his funeral, I assumed perhaps he simply mentioned that to our household, however one in every of
his associates that spoke, included that Dave quote in his discuss. One factor
I liked at his funeral is that every thing I heard was so per
who I knew Dave to be. He was the identical particular person with everybody he
met.  Dave was simply Dave.

One other unimaginable present that occurred the week of Dave’s loss of life day is that this little story.  I LOVE this.  So, a pair weeks prior, a pal despatched me an image of Macie when she was nonetheless in Ethiopia.  It made me notice that I used to be lacking some footage.  So, I took a cursory look round for Dave’s outdated cellphone, questioning if I ever bought the images off of it.  I could not discover it, however then I used to be searching for one thing else every week later and got here throughout his cellphone in essentially the most random place ever.  It mentioned it was disabled, however I attempted to sync it with my laptop and it truly labored.  A number of the footage I had, however a few of them I had NEVER seen and there have been plenty of movies that I had, additionally, NEVER EVER seen.  Evidently, when Macie got here dwelling, I used to be busy falling aside and Dave was busy taking movies of her.  So, the week of Dave’s loss of life day, you can discover the 4 of us huddled round my laptop, watching these new discovered treasures.

I like the timing of this discovery.  It was so excellent.  I am so blissful that we did not uncover them till now, as a result of now they really feel so untainted.  I like that the youngsters can hear Dave within the movies.  Once I took movies it was often of the youngsters and never Dave, imagine it or not, and often he was at work or wherever.  However within the movies he took, it was his voice and his character that you just get to know.  There have been a pair movies that I feel the youngsters watched actually 20 instances.  These movies weren’t ones the place my youngsters have been performing or doing one thing video worthy, however they have been movies the place Dave was interacting with them.  I feel they have been so hungry to know what Dave was like with them.  I will not publish these, as a result of they really feel so sacred to my youngsters, however I wish to publish a few them to share Dave’s voice and to share this completely timed little treasure.

Is Huge Information Corrupting the U.S. Election Course of?

As the 2020 election cycle ramps up, voters can expect a flurry of targeted advertisements fueled by big data on their doorsteps, inboxes and social media feeds. While microtargeting based on demographic information is not a new trend in campaign strategy, campaigns traditionally relied on analyzing voter behavior within broader categories such as age or gender before big data was easily accessible.

●本書特色
  ◎從心態及觀念養成開始,1-5分鐘,新手也能立馬上手的「立中式速繪教學」。
  ◎58部插圖教學影片免費下載,新手可一步步反覆學習,書末更附有作品集供創作者參考。
  ◎3大章節、逾200張速繪圖,講解觀察人物技巧、速繪重點及提升風格的小撇步。
速繪人物的基礎三堂課:
  ➊ 建立正確的心態
  不要想畫「正確」,而是要「輕鬆地多畫一些」,
  所謂的觀察力,只是「知識」和「經驗」的累積,
  熟悉自然就會,真的畫不出來的時候,只觀察也行。
  因為#魅力十足的圖,和技巧或常識毫無關係。#
  藉由觀察獲得的經驗和記憶,會轉換成「現實感」並活在作品中。
  不斷畫速繪,就能培養出短時間內掌握特徵的能力。
 
  ➋ 練習簡單畫全身的速繪技巧▁▁火柴人練習
  ⑴ 將全身分成15個部位,
  用2D畫全身,
  「頭 部、胸部、骨盤」是橢圓形。
  「上臂、下臂、大腿、小腿、手、腳」是線條。
  用D字形畫胸廓、軀幹和髖部,塑造印象,
  部位和部位之間留下空白,
  就能輕鬆畫出姿勢。
 
  ⑵ 注意基本結構,不要注意輪廓和細節
  看全身:那個人在做什麼?你有什麼感覺?
  看部位:位置和傾斜度?有什麼功用?
  簡單大膽地畫,鎖定在動作和使用身體的方式。
 
  ⑶ 立體化
  畫出火柴人的2D表現方式,稱作Shape,
  接下來要把平面添加立體的資訊,
  讓Shape有厚度(深度),
  只要畫出縱向的中心線,以及表示膨度的橫向曲線,
  就能變成有厚度和方向性的立體物。
 
  ⑷ 創造不對稱平衡
  全身的節奏和動線是一種流線感。
  盡量避免線條左右對稱,
  大原則是:弧線的對面必然是直線。
 
  ➌掌握印象,最後的風格和情緒添加
  這個人正在做¬「什麼」(動作)?他有「什麼樣」的感受(感情)?
  動作和感情,就是本書所說的動態。
  習慣用少量線條畫全身的思考方式後,就加入動線(flow)的觀點吧!
  不同的曲線會流暢地引導視線。
  彎度深的曲線會用慢節奏,彎度淺的曲線會用快節奏來引導視線。
  將線條加上粗細,就會產生強弱,成為更有趣味性的圖。
 
  本書從心態建立到步驟教學,
  不到20秒就能完成一幅速繪,
  附上58張速繪插圖影片,
  從空白至完稿,一筆一畫的繪畫過程全呈現,
  供學習者一遍一遍觀看臨摹,
  零基礎也沒問題。
 
  每次畫的速繪都是僅有一次的體驗,
  是當下你所能畫出的線條所構成的,
  請輕鬆享受速繪的樂趣吧!

Design College students’ Summer season Break

With summer break fast approaching, graphic design students like me are trying to figure out productive ways to spend their time. Work for money? Work for experience? Summer classes?

I’ve spent the past few months doing everything I can to
find an internship this summer. Finding a company that isn’t an MLM and will
actually pay good money for your design work is tough. Luckily, graphic design
is a field that’s in demand, so there are a lot of good options out there.

The other option for getting design experience during the summer
break is freelance work, but that comes with its own slew of issues. There’s
nothing worse than beginning to work with a client and getting excited for a
project just for them to look at you with a face like the Surprised Pikachu Meme
when you start to discuss cost.

With two weeks left in the semester, here’s hoping we figure
something out soon!
