Portrait of a Suicide
Posted by Sam at 5:12 PM | tags: , , ,

I have one week left of my first semester as a graduate student. I cannot believe that it went by this quickly. And what do I have to show for my semester of hard work and toil? Bags under my eyes the size of Texas... oh, and of course, an unwavering addiction dedication to coffee.

Actually, that's not true. While I do have huge bags under my eyes, and my devotion to the Good Bean has never been this acute, I have much to show for my first semester's work... much writing, much learning, and one suicide. Fortunately, the suicide is of the fictional variety... although lately, napping for the rest of eternity does sound appealing... Kidding. Just kidding.

The suicide takes the form of an audio project for a Media, Imaging, and Sound Design class that I am taking. If you have one minute and fifty-four seconds to kill, you can give it a listen. The project is in a handy, iPod ready, .mp3 format. And if you can, listen on headphones. There are some slight nuances that certain 'puter speakers won't produce well. So, without any further banter, I give you:

Portrait of a Suicide

I'm fine. Really.

Nicely done...was that a few slugs of liquid courage (Old Overcoat perhaps) that I heard? Wonderful...I loved the desperate, the hesitation and the pathos!

But you are sure that you are all right?

I noticed that you tagged this post "life" wouldn't it be more appropriate to tag it "death?"

It might seem like a silly question but when you have acne, lots of different things influence your skin. Finding the right acne solution for you depends on skin type as well as what type of activities you like to do. Taking care of your skin is important; everyone wants to have healthy beautiful skin. Many people do not realize that stress, environment, diet and exercise are all things that influence skin. The amount of sleep you get also makes a difference. In general, people that exercise on a regular basis might have a little more acne because of heat and sweat. Always make sure to wash your face well.

The kind of acne treatment that is right for you may not be right for other people. You have to know what skin type you have like oily, dry or a combination. Finding the right acne treatment does not have to be hard. Acne-reviews is a free service that gives you all kinds of tips and information on skin care as well as reviews of skin care products. Skin care products range in how well they work based on your skin type and how well you use them as directed and on a regular basis. They can direct you to a product that can help your skin.

Lots of the activities we do everyday have affects on our skin and we might not even know it. When we exercise, we sweat and that can cause our skin to become clogged with dirt and oils if we do not wash our face and bodies quickly after we have finished and that can have an impact on our skin care. Exercising is important though not only because it will help make us strong and healthy but because, when you sweat it helps rid your body of toxins and waste. When you are looking for acne treatment, it is important to follow the directions so you can get the best results possible.

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
