Derek's Days

last year.

Posted in journal, Life, Uncategorized by moesker007 on August 20, 2010

summer has officially come and gone. school starts next monday, my last year at mcad. i just returned from a quick trip to vegas. though i’m 21 now, i still don’t think it’s that great of a city. before vegas ben and i took a trip to ashland. my aunt and little cousins were home too, it was great seeing everybody.

it’s a bit scary to think that i’ve only got one year left before i’m set into the real world. i’ve had one of the most fun summers this year in nyc. working at apple and opening ceremony kept me busy, but it meant when i did have time off i made sure to have fun.

as far as what’s to come… who knows.

sitting on the flight to nyc, neat. inflight wi-fi is quite nice.

i went up north last weekend to drop off the jeep and have some family and friend time. the picture posted below is from a day of boating i had with allie and her parents. we went all around the islands, fished, had lunch at hardwood. i got some nice tan/burn from the trip and realized that boats aren’t quite as scary as i remembered.

things are all sorted out so phil, sara, alison and jordan will be living at 3900 minnehaha for the summer. thank goodness for them, i’d much rather have them be living there than pay for 3 months of nothing.

it was phil’s 21st birthday yesterday. allie, phil and i came back from ashland and went straight to valley fair. it was raining when we got there, but went anyway and it cleared up about a half hour after we walked through the gates. it took only about 4 rides for me to feel sick, so i watched and had some snacks while phil and allie conquered the park. i’ve gotten more susceptible to nausea than i used to be, shoot.

nyc, here i come.

secluded summer.

the jeep broke down a few days ago, it just wouldn’t start. luckily, allie used her aaa for me and we got it towed to a mechanic in our neighborhood. turns out the fuel pump died, sad. it should be fixed this afternoon, thank goodness.

yesterday allie and i enjoyed the beautiful summer day here in minneapolis by laying in the park all day. she had two finals to study for so we sat in minnehaha falls park all day on a blanket and soaked up the sun. i read an entire three-hundred page book, “la candy” by lauren conrad. it was a horrible book, never read it.

some classmates and friends of mine are in nyc right now pitching a new brand of underwear to investors which is quite exciting. they are having lunch with mtv communications now. way to go, makes me happy to go to mcad.

everything is secured and set up for nyc. i’m starting at apple on the 5th of june and will be working about 30 hrs/week there. allie is coming to visit the week after i get there. i’m going home to ashland the last weekend of may then leave for nyc on the 2nd.  it’s going to be a busy (and fun) summer!

graphic design is officially over! surprisingly, i’m somewhat sad it’s done. even though it was an enormous amount of time and work, i grew to enjoy it over the semester. my teacher must have liked my stuff, he sent me this email before class:

You have been selected as one of a few people who are on my list
for project documentation. So to that end, could you bring ALL of your
work to class in the original(final) digital files. Please be sure to
include all links—photographs and fonts—that support the file.”
