Influential Person #17: Soo Kim

6:15 PM Michael 0 Comments

Last Spring quarter, I signed up for a class "Fashion Merchandising, Planning, and Control." What I did go in was knowing I would need a calculator and the left side of my brain. What I didn't realize was it would prompt a journey to discover the so many other facets of fashion outside of design. And you know what it gave me? Hope. Soo Kim is one of the most influential people on my journey because after learning about the customer and the marketplace I could never design the same way again. And this certainly isn't a sad thing. It is a happy shift. I can now design for people. People with lives.
Most of all Soo Kim gave us everything. It is observable when a professor goes clearly out of his way to help. Thank you professor. 
It's very inspiring to see him going after his dreams. School is not the same. We miss you so so much. Thank you for FASM at scad. I should defend it more often.
There is something I will never forget him saying : "Don't say 'I think', nobody cares what you 'think'. Say 'I believe'"


Sans poetry.

My eyes are heavy.

Always weird the morning a deadline is past. You can look at your emails again, realize how much you have to catch up on and how quickly time has been moving. But the morning is so quiet. Rotating, rotating, rotating.

I'm having a really tough time in school. I wish we could eat together to feel better. I wonder if there is a way to feel better. A way to do better and be better.

 I wonder where all the fat goes.. my hair?

Listen... authentically.
Better posture.
Better backpack.
Admit a need for help.

*I really get up in the middle of the night to perform such acts...

"We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents. We do not choose our historical epoch, or the country of our birth, or the immediate circumstances of our up brining. We do not, most of us, choose to die; nor do we choose the time or conditions of our death. But within this realm of choicelessness, we do choose how we shall live: with purpose or adrift, with joy or with joylessness, with hope or with despair, with humor or with sadness, with a positive outlook or a negative outlook, with pride or with shame, with inspiration or with defeat, and with honor or with dishonor. We decide what makes us significant or insignificant. We decide to be creative or to be indifferent. No matter how indifferent the universe may be to our choices and decisions, these choices and decisions are ours to make. We choose to do or what we refuse to do. And as we decide and choose, so are our destinies formed. "

Thinkertoys, Michael Michalko
