words you might not know

I love things that you need to break in order to enjoy like bubble wrap, or this book by will hudson where you have to tear the perforated edges to expose a word that you might not know, and thereby devalue the book.

I took my last final in History of Rock on Tuesday, the senior show is hung and I'm almost out of here and back home.

Incomplete manifesto

Bruce Mau is basically the man. I love the way he embraces large corporations as ways to institute big change rather than just whining about them. His incomplete manifesto is incredibly reassuring.

Some advice
18. Stay up late. Strange things happen when you’ve gone too far, been up too long, worked too hard, and you're separated from the rest of the world.

Size Matters

As a designer you are only as legit as the size of your printer. This is incredibly sad considering the only printer I have is the standard 8.5 x 11 canon that comes free with your mac, and it's been out of ink for the past 4 months.

One day I will be this cool.

Until then I'm off to Kinkos.

I saw this super sweet address book yesterday and couldn't pass it up. The stationary designer Sukie just came out with a more affordable line for Chronicle books.

Thoughts on Graduation

We get one story, you and I, and one story alone. God has established the elements, the setting, and the climax and the resolution. It would be a crime not to venture out, wouldn't it? It might be time for you to go. It might be time to change, to shine out.

I want to repeat one word for you: Leave.

Roll the word around on your tongue for a bit. It is a beautiful word, isn't it?

So strong and forceful, the way you have always wanted to be. And you will not be alone. You have never been alone. Don't worry. Everything will still be here when you get back. It is you who will have changed.
-Donald Miller

I came upon this blog and had a weird glimpse of myself in 10 years. I think I'd be down.

Midwest is Best

I recently found this fantastic illustrator through the Newstoday website. I was in a particularly outgoing mood so I decided to call him and tell him how cool he was and ended up asking him to coffee next saturday in Brooklyn. He said yes. This will most certainly be an adventure.

this is one of my favorites

Settlers of Catan

So I have this amazing roommate Donna from South Jersey. Picture Donna from South Jersey walking into our local gaming know they sell magic cards and dungeons and dragons paraphernalia. So she walks in looking very cute and South Jersey with a sweater tied around her neck and her vera bradley purse, and gets a very strange look from the employees that resemble the creators of the lord of the rings movies, or people you would find at a star trek convention. They ask with a puzzled look if they can help her with anything and she replies, "yes, I'm looking for the settlers of catan expansion kit". This is one of the many reasons why I love my roommate. She can dress like a sorority girl and flash her junior park ranger badges from every major civil war battlefield. Can tell you about the latest ludacris album and in the same sentence talk about the history of the Soviet Union. What will I do without her?

Donna and her friends playing Settlers.
