Jerry Ski firstly came to Athens in 1969 for his undergraduate study in general art. He then settled down in Athens after several years of post-graduation traveling. He opened the Ski's T-Shirt shop on Court Street in the 1970s, which is probably the oldest T-shirt shop in town. He designs and prints on the T-shirts. He says his biggest joy is painting and chasing women.

Last Fridy, I followed two mormon missionaries as my assignment for the Dawn to Dusk project of VisCom. Patty and Jones are the only two mormon missionaries in Athens County, both of which are only 20.
Never watching TV or reading newspapers to prevent distraction, they study the Bible in the morning and preach around in Athens County in the afternoon. What they do most is to knock on people's doors and ask if they are interested in knowing more about the mormon belief. They are self-funded to do the mission. Patty got some support from his families who are all mormons while Jones saved up to be a missionary. They will go back to college after they finish their mission.

I didn't know that nail cosmetology has to get a license to work in the US. Things are very different in China--most nail cosmetology are young girls at their 20th in China. I have never seen a male cosmetology in China. I talked to my roommate about this and she says in America, if you are going to do a job related to human's body even the nails, you have to get a license to be qualified. Hmm, much more to know about this country~

A late post for my first time watching American Football.
Hey guys, can you guess who is the cook for the dishes below?
You got it! I didn't realize that I would fall in love with cooking until I came to the US. Cooking shares some similarities with photography, both are fun and creative. Before I take a picture I would draw the picture in my mind while before cooking I would draw the taste! There's almost nothing more pleasing than cooking out a dish with an imagined taste. :)
