Primexecutor = Primeape + Executor

In the spirit of the supposed Pokemon Month this December, we got together and brainstormed some Pokemon hybrids. We mixed Primeape and an Executor to make a Primexecutor. Sebastian came up with the concept and drew it up what came to mind.

I cleaned up the drawing and colored it in Photoshop. These are the steps:

STEP ONE: SCAN ORIGINAL INTO PHOTOSHOP, AND ROTATE


STEP TWO: CLEAN UP AND REMOVE STRAY LINES


STEP THREE: DARKEN LINES AND REMOVE WHITE SPACES


STEP FOUR: ADD COLOR, FIRST PASS


STEP FIVE: BURN COLOR, SECOND PASS


STEP SIX: ADJUST OVERALL CONTRAST AND BRIGHTNESS

"Yeah Fat Squirrel!"

Later today I will have submitted my last paper and finished my last final (and the last thing I need to do other than packing) before the break. I will repost this photo in celebration. Maybe it'll brighten your day. Ithaca weather blows.

Apparently, I do not have much patience. It doesn't go well with the fact that I have a short-temper. This is not a good week. It is almost over.

Fall 2009, In Summary

I just realized I didn't learn anything substaintial this semester. This fall was filled with a lot of "busy work" and a lot of sub-par or terrible professors and TAs that I have little respect for the class. Most of them, anyway.

At the end of this writing-intensive semester, with a total 8 classes, 4 of which are liberal arts, I summarize it as follows:

CLASSES I'M GLAD I TOOK
Technology in Society (STS 2501)
Introduction to Wines (HADM 4430)

CLASSES THAT WERE OKAY
Communication and Technology (INFO 2450)
Energy Seminar (MAE 5459)
Fluids and Heat Transfer Lab (MAE 4272)

CLASSES I LOST RESPECT FOR
Introduction to Linguistics (LING 1101)
Professionalism in Engineering (MAE 4300)
Introduction to Nuclear Engineering (MAE 4580)

What a terrible semester. At the very least, though, at least we suffered through the tough classes and endured through the crappy ones together. Cheers.
