Today was the first day of my internship!
My first time working in a position that is an 8 am - 5 pm job.
It was incredibly interesting to see the 5 different work sites that we went to today. There are many more than those that we saw today, but the ones today were in my own county so it was really cool to see how they are progressing and what their planning the end products to be.
I started my required driving hours to be able to drive a DOT vehicle solo today as well. I’m glad that we just get to start with an automatic! It appears that I’ll be learning how to drive a manual!
I got to see an extension that included a simple and small bridge, where a passing lane is going to be added that will include an expansion on a small bridge, where a suicide lane is to be added, a traffic circle is being completed and where an entirely new bridge is being built across the Savannah River. It’s been such an experience just getting to see these projects and I’m greatly looking forward to diving more in depth into them over the next two months!
Luckily, all paper work was completed today and my direct deposit has been set up so from here on out it should be nothing but work!
I also just so happen to be the only female in the entire building besides the secretary (who is incredibly talented and sweet!).
I started watching Orange is the New Black today
and I’m hooked.
Slenderman came to Georgia Southern today.
He would sit at tables and just stare forward for at least 30 minutes at a time. He would be completely still even when people got in his face and waved.
Then he would stand in windows and just stare.
Shit was creepy

No cut-aways, one take.
Crew members threatened to quit and begged him not to do it.
The cameraman looked away while rolling.
A six ton prop.
It brushes his arm as it comes down.
And he doesn’t even flinch.
Buster fucking Keaton, everyone.
"Space is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is.”
"yesssss, pet me human"
idk man it just makes me so so so sad when you’re watching a cutiepie talk about their passion like when they light up and start bubbling over with words and then all of a sudden they stop themselves and say stuff like “sorry, i know this is boring” or “sorry i just got excited”
like you know somewhere in their life someone they respected told them “shut up nobody cares” and ever since they can’t talk about their favorite things without apologizing every 5 seconds
A few days ago I bought a course "Introduction of the Art of Modern Calligraphy" by Molly Jacques, which you should definitely check, and I fell in love with calligraphy.
Now I find this useful infographic with the basics of calligraphy, including tools. In case you want to try your skills you should try to do those exercise.
In both cases, (the classes from molly and this infographic) they ask you simple tools to begining your training:
- Pen Holder
- Nikko G pointed, 303 and 404 Nibs (but you can find packs including pen holder like this one)
- Black ink
- Semi Transparent Layout Bound (recommend by Molly)
- Calligraphy Lined Guide (optional)
In case you’re most an analog vintage retro-old guy, and you prefer to read a real book that stuck your nose in a monitor these are cool option for calligraphy beginners (the last to images):
- Modern Calligraphy: Everything You Need to Know to Get Started in Script Calligraphy.
- Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy: A Step-by-Step Manual
Here are the last useful links:
