Semiotics 1

The signifier is a metal statue of a bull getting ready to charge.
I think that this signifies determination, driven attitudes, and a willingness to charge towards any and all problems head-on.
The reason why I think it signifies this is because it is placed in the most important business sector in the US. The US's economic system thrives and survives off of competition, I think that the bull embodies this by showing the fearless and headstrong attitude of the businessmen who pass it by within the statue.
I think that the meaning of the statue can change. Times that the economy is not good the bull signifies a willingness to persevere. The bull's position remains unchanged, it is ready and prepared to lunge forward to meet any challenge that arises.

sketch--week 8

Lighthouses are probably one of my favorite things in the whole world so I was so happy to be able to go to one while we were in France. I loved being at the ocean so so much. It's a little bittersweet that this is the last week. It has been an incredible three months but I am very excited to go back home as well!

sketch---week 7

Ate this churro while in Valencia and it was the first churro I had with sugar on it. It was filled with chocolate and it was delicious! Can't believe two weeks from today I will be home!
