It Ain’t Easy Bein’ Green

Well, this is my last official post for the semester. It has gone by so quickly. Seeing that foliage is changing to the festive colors of fall I decided to write about my favorite color GREEN!

What comes to mind when you think green? Kermit the Frog, hybrid cars, Oz, money? Well, for many it envokes the feelings of serenity and friendliness. It symbolizes envy and jealousy.

Green just so happens to be a complimentary color of red. It is exactly opposite of this color on the color wheel and is created by mixing the other two primary colors together.  It seems that nature had it just right when it created green to be the companion of red, especially now, considering that we are only a few days past Thanksgiving and the Christmas decorations of red and green have alreadygone up.

I bet you’re wondering what is difficult about green. Well, it is at the center of the light spectrum (the center of it’s own light world) making it the least arousing of all the colors. Or the fact that if you wear red with it you atomatically look like one of Santa’s elfs. Case in point, would love to wear my green shirts with my red Toms, but I can’t too close to elfin. Although these are the funny little difficulities with green it does have its redeeming qualities; which are:

  • it works weel with white, and looks good grayed, warmed or cooled
  • Muted shade of green attract readers eyes better than bright shades
  • Green tint screens hold pages down
  • Green bars work well around photographs with green in them
  • It works best when you want readers to fulfill an exact task.

Although, green is probably the least liked color I hoped this post caused you to realize the wonderous beauties about the color green.

Wishing you happy holidays and a Grand semester

    While it is true that I have heard of some people that have never had office interviews before sometimes it can be beneficial to get interviewed in a variety of ways besides sitting in a office. And any way, it really does not matter how you get interviewed as long as you prepare yourself well for the interview and know how you will answer the questions.
