It's 5:45am and I'm taking a break from studying Chemistry. I don't think I need to explain how sad it is that (1) I'm awake at 5:45am and (2) I've been awake long enough to take a break at 5:45...I went to bed at about 12:30am and woke up at 4:15am...
Aside from my Chemistry final I also have to finish a paper, turn in a final, and make a presentation today. I must say...if this wasn't the last day of school for me, I would not be a happy camper. BUT since I'm doing all of this for my last day this semester...I think I can put up with it. Honestly, if I've learned anything in college it's how far I can make my body go on the least amount of sleep and still be productive. haha.

My presentation today is going to be so cool. I'm excited about it. (Remember I mentioned this research paper earlier...I'm doing an analysis of women in advertisements from 1950-1980.) I wanna share some of the advertisements with you and see if you think they're as ridiculous as I do...

A 1950's ad for shaving cream...seriously??

In the 1960's everything was sexy.
Midol was sexy...
Oh p.s. by "Be a Swinger!" they're obviously talking about girls swinging golf clubs...

Cigarette ads in the 60's were just fantastic...
Seriously, you should view this one full size...you're not dreaming...that really says "It's not how long you make it... it's how you make it long."

The 70's had some that just made me angry...
What a drag for men in the 70's to have to choose just one woman..."It's nice to have a choice" give me a break...

*Fun fact: I didn't have enough money to make copies in the library of all 45 pages, so I took a camera to the library and photographed all the pages...I don't think that's against the rules...but I did it either way lol.

Yea...sleep deprived, naturally sarcastic personality, and semi-passionate about my topic...I think this presentation is going to be fun.

I hope you're all having a great week :-).

you should check out the book Pink Think by Lynn Peril. She has a ton of old adds in there, some are so offensive like the woman who's husband is leaving her because she did not douche and is not "dainty" enough. yikes!

Wow, that is insanity. It truly is offensive, although I must say the trumpet ad did make me laugh a little :)
