 Why Green: Is green my favorite color? Not quite but it's on the long list of favorites. But as all art majors know, there is a psychology to color theory. The phrase 'being green' comes to mind when describing myself because I'm smart but sometimes I am lost in the sauce and it takes some explaining for me to know what's happening right in front of me. I am dope but slightly naive, thus green. But as I gather knowledge and understanding, I've been able to be ...less green. Green is a cool color. Its opposite is red which is a warm color. I want all my accounts, relationships, and the environment to remain 'in the green'. I need all the things around me to grow, flourish, and be cool; like the color green.
