I graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with Master of Arts, with my major in interior design. [Throughout my master studies, I learned how to mix different kinds of random materials into a space and let it become an environmentally friendly and creative design. (I don’t quite understand what you’re trying to describe, here.)]. To decorate the interior, I learned to imitate the infamous sui generis style.

    2. "I was watching a movie called 'The secret life of pet' today. I personally think this animation is made for children and adults (this is more than one adult). It's about pets; while their owners work during the day, the pets hang out just like human beings. The animators show in their work distinctive cat features very well. It always cracks me up when cat does "cat things". I used to watch this movie when I was babysitting my friend's kid last winter. So while I was watching this movie I had mixed feelings. I really miss the kid, holding the kid, watching this movie. He laughed a lot, and that made me smile, not because of the movie. Children really fill your heart with happiness. I wish I could make a jelly and peanut butter sandwich for him again. I loved when he whispered that he was hungry because he skipped his lunch, even though it was in the middle of the movie (happened in past so change verbs to past). I'd always put extra strawberry jam for him."
