This past Saturday, I went to an art portfolio day. I brought multiple art pieces along with my sketchbook in which I had drawn Kris' rhino/horse creature in it. When it was my turn, I presented my sketchbook to the interviewer. He began to flip through my book and commented on my drawings. As he reached the page with the rhino creature, he stopped and stared at it for a good 5 seconds. I was actually hoping he would've just looked at it and move on, but to my surprise, he asked me what it was. I replied, "A horse rhino thing". He nodded and stared at it again and said it was interesting and he liked it. /what/ He continued to say it was very intriguing and eye catching because he didn't know what it was. He said that was good because if the picture had some sort of deep meaning to it, then that (the rhino) was what will get the viewer to look deeper into the picture and find the meaning and feelings behind it. /interallycryingatthispoint. He continued praising it for a good 5 minutes saying how it was cool and fun and how he liked it. I didn't have the heart to tell him I didn't design it. Krisus, your artistic skills have blessed me.
21 People On What They Would Tell Their 19-Year-Old Selves
Jonathan, 55:There is no such thing as “the only one”. You will meet lots of “the ones”. Only commit when the timing is right for the both of you – that can take years for some, and that’s okay.
Miranda, 24:Drop pre-med.
Isaac, 48:Deodorant does not count as a shower, and that haircut only looked good on Bon Jovi.
Anya, 42:Make the conscious decision to be happy, and then stick with it. Society will do everything in its power to convince you that your personal happiness is dependent on something external – beauty, success, wealth, etc. – it isn’t.
Parker, 55:60% of the things you think are important now won’t matter a whit to you by the time you reach 50. The trick is to figure out the important 40% and work it.
Megan, 34:He doesn’t love you, and you will be okay.
Peter, 58:Don’t let anything stand in your way of taking part (or all) of your junior year abroad. You’ll never again have quite the same opportunity to experience a foreign land, for an extended period of time, in your youth. It is destined to be one of the most memorable aspects of your life.
Eleanor, 67:Talk less. Listen more.
Donald, 27:There’s a huge difference between who you want to be and who everyone around you wants you to be. Figure out which is which.

Vicki, 47:You’ll never have all the answers, so make every question count.
Donald, 38:You don’t have to grow up to be the dad you never had.

Joshua, 55:Women love to laugh.
Annabelle, 38:Drugs are not beautiful, glamorous or opulent. They are not a remedy, a solution, a cure-all, or a cure-anything.
Colin, 50:You miss so much life when you sleep until 3 PM. Wake up to see sunrises; they are the most stunning of nature’s masterpieces.
Eleanor, 26:Eating two pints of ice cream won’t make you happy. Neither will sprinting 10 miles. Be nice to yourself.
Aaron, 52:Don’t forget to ask that girl in the Oberlin library what kind of perfume she’s wearing. You’ll buy it for her in 20 years.
Scarlett, 54:Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Those that get you will love you, those that don’t, well, their loss. Just remember: Wherever you are, it’s a party.
Zack, 9:I hope you’re awesome. And be nice to girls.

We were talking about Somatogenic Amnesia and i was writing my notes for it and when I looked up she had Anterograde Amnesia up there…and im like SHIT. ABORT! ABORT!
