Transcript of Essence of Megan [Journal 8]

Social Symbolic Dustin Vaughan "Days 'Til Dustin Wall" I am currently in a long distance relationship with Dustin. He is all the way in Auburn California. In my dorm room, I posted a wall of sticky-notes on my closet door that are counting down the days until I get to see Dustin. This is a physical representation of my anticipation and excitment for Dustin's arrival. This wall of sticky-notes is a symbol of myself becuase it demonstraites my creativity. It also shows that I enjoy making things into a game: ex It is a fun thing for me to be able to peel off a new sticky note each night. Crayon Art These works are not only representitive of me because I made them, but also since they show my love of art and my creative nature! Material The The The TOMS Galore My four pair of TOMS shoes represent my sense of style and my love for the global community. TOMS is a company that donates a pair of shoes to a child in need whenever a pair is purchased. 'One for One' Facebookin' it! I am an admitted Facebook addict. I am constantly using Facebook to connect with friends, family, and people whom I had forgotten about. In case you didn't know, Facebook is the world's largest social network with over 800 million active users. Instead of asking people how they have been doing, I have gotten in the habit of just checking thier Facebook profile to see their recent activities or status updates. This way of communication through social networking has become a very popular trend amung many genorations and has been adapted into people's everyday lives. Essense of Megan We have been dating for about a year, and he lived with me in Virgnia for 7(ish) months. I act differently to Dustin than I do to someone like my friend, Gage Herbert. This is Gage Herbert, by the way. Although I don't publicly show my affection for Dustin, meaning I don't sit on his lap in public or kiss him constantly, we do still hold hands, making it evident that we are in a romantic relationship. I also have started to set aside a specific time that we can talk everynight. Dustin and I have had to adopt different ways of communication since we live so far apart. We use Skype video calls. This allows us to see eachother's faces, so it is more fufilling that just talking on the phone. We send hundreds of texts a day. We use the chat tool on Facebook. As I said before, we always talk on the phone at night. I think that societies constant use of technology as a form of communication has helped make my relationship with Dustin possible. My relationship with Dustin is one of the most important aspects of my social life. TOMS has also recently launched an eyewear campaign; whenever someone purchases a pair of their sunglasses, they give a person in need their sight back. I am proud to say that I own these shoes. I sort of see it as informal community service, something that is an important aspect of my life. Imagine all the people... On my 16th birthday, I got this tattoo on the back of my neck. I got the tattoo (which reads 'Imagine') for many different reasons. My main reasoning is because of the John Lennon song, Imagine. The song talks about living in a world without violence, hatred, and overall, just living life in peace. I think the song sends out a great message and has been very inspirational to myself and many others. I also chose to get this as a tattoo because of my love for art! To me, tattoos (when meaningful to the person bares it) can be a great way to show their loyalty, values, beliefs, or ideas in a way that makes them forever perminent. This is why my 'Imagine' tattoo is symbolic of who I am as a person. It demonstraits my worldly values and hopes for peace, as well as reinforcing my love of art. Tattoos, when done corectly, can be a beautiful way of displaying someone's art for everyone, or no one, to see. They are no longer seen as just marks on someone's body, but works of art.
