"La Sweet Vida" Diabetes Campaign

A part of the reason why I was MIA most of last semester was because I was able to be a part of this amazing project. Being able to work with amazing people who happened to be great designers was an opportunity that I’m glad I didn’t let slip away. I appreciate Cosme, Karen and Seiji for welcoming me into their group halfway into the project and allowing me to take on an important part of the campaign.

This morning I received an email with all of my developed film and I’ve never felt this level of nostalgia. I’ve read about people who’ve experienced big cities, telling us how lonely and isolated they’d felt even when surrounded by a sea of people. I have to admit though that I went through many moments where I felt lonely, wanted cry and sleep until it was time to go back home. I learned so much about myself through this isolation and was lucky enough to have people that I could distract myself with when it became to dark. I had to trust myself. Being “isolated” made me understand that my happiness was a combination of doing what I truly love and sharing it with people who enjoyed it as much as I did.

Our professor asked us how many drafts we did on our mechanical drawings and I honestly answered 7. Someone responds with you have a lot of time. We literally all have 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I don’t understand what this means because we literally have the same amount of time. Like why? I work, I have class, I’m literally using my time as I should???

Having fun alone with card stock and fashion magazines. This has been a somewhat therapeutic thing and I might make it a permanent thing. 

My favorite moment lately has to be right before bed when I eat a sliced pear and listen to old school hip hop while scrolling through 90s aesthetic fashion blogs.
