Last week I worked some pretty late nights. Monday I came home from work at 1 AM, Wednesday it was 4AM. They were the first few nights I’ve worked late at a job in my long history of working in this business. I’ve always heard stories about how designers work until all hours of the night and now I can say that I’ve fully experienced what that’s like. I can sum this up in two words: not bad.

Granted, I work at a really awesome place with a great boss who has the greatest music ever (i.e. Muppets and William Shatner), so my experience might be different from others. I’m pretty tired this morning (as I usually put myself to bed by 9:45) but I feel as though I’ve completed some sort of rite of passage by working late. But I digress.

 I’ve been sniffing out Tumblr for the past few months, trying to decide whether or not to start my own account. Or in other words, trying to decide whether or not I need ANOTHER home on the web.

My decision is evident here. And this is why: Read the rest of this entry »

A friend of mine brought to my attention that Earth Hour is tonight. Something I have always planned to do and am now really going to follow through. So needless to say I was grateful for the reminder. So tonight at 830 PM central time, my husband and I will be turning off our lights. We’ll light candles around the house and play cards or read or (I really wish) take a nap.

While researching any sort of event (movie, inauguration, food-eating contest), I always go to the “Downloads” section of the event’s website to see what sort of design they are letting the people have. I was not disappointed when I went to Earth Hour’s home on the web. Read the rest of this entry »

What IS this!?

Well, I made it to Arkansas and am once again employed. This place makes me very happy and I am honestly excited (despite my comment in my last post) to start writing about design again. So without further ado:

The other day I went to Apple’s website to see what was new. I was a bit shocked to see they’ve come out with a new Shuffle. Even more shocked that they changed it so much. And though I don’t own one and haven’t tried it out, I would still like to relay my first impressions. Read the rest of this entry »

I’d like to tell you all a little story. Here is the summary:

Girl starts blog. Girls loses job. Girls blogs about losing job. Employers read blog. Girl gets new job.

It’s basically a success story. And now I’ll elaborate. Read the rest of this entry »

I know you are all eagerly anticipating my next adventure, but I thought I would take a small break and share with you a photo. I’d like to do this more often and hopefully will follow through. Enjoy.

I have returned from my epic road trip to the Ohio Valley. I would’ve updated last night, but I was exhausted when I got home and there was a marathon of Ghost Hunters on SciFi–something I simply couldn’t miss. So here I am, in my pajamas, regaling you, the reader, with this tale.
