I need a big creative project to hold my brain...
Because besides 3 weeks in Europe, I got nothin’. This is always the hardest part. What the hell do I do?
Anybody use a Bluetooth keyboard with their iPad?
I’m gonna be doing a fair amount of writing abroad. I don’t want to bring my laptop, but writing on the iPad screen keyboard is bleh. I already have a good iPad case, so I’m mostly looking for a keyboard I can easily connect/disconnect to use with ByWord, but I’m not against a great keyboard case. Right now I’m thinking either something like TacType that fits over the...
Today is 3 months.
Which means this is now my longest relationship ever. My mom sent me a $25 gift card to The Olive Garden. Sorry if you’re jealous of the party that’s gonna go down.

You can obviously write.– At the last minute, they switched the professors who did our final first-year portfolio review today, from the professor who’s been making me consider dropping out to an art direction prof I’ve only had once. It doesn’t seem like much, but to have someone with fresh eyes for all of...

The Grad School Finals Diet
Breakfast: hahahahaha Lunch 1: the final scrapings of some free pulled meat (I want to say pork but I’m not sure) sandwiches in front of the business school Lunch 2: three tacos at Baja because it was Dollar Taco Tuesday if you sat at the bar and looked depressed about your existence Snack: a small order of curly fries split between four people Dinner: half an Arby’s cheese, bacon...
It's my life, and I'm gonna keep Ralph Wiggum-ing...
Even though I'm not doing the internship thing
it’s nice as hell, during the most stressful days of the year, to get that first email from an NY agency recruiter who likes my work and wonders if I’d be available to come work with them this summer. Ego: stroked.
In Which I Spend My Afternoon in a Coffee Shop and...
Customer: What's the most decadent thing you have?
Customer: You know. Decadent. Decadence.
Barista: ...uh. We have a cookie left. And some chocolate muffins.
Customer: Hmm. Which one is decandent-er?
At a certain point, after a day of exhausting meetings and a night of free drinks and tacos with agency recruiters, we say fuck it to tomorrow’s early morning assignments and eat all the bacon his mom sent for his birthday and fall asleep watching The Simpsons and I realize how, if I dig hard and claw away the dirt of a million stresses from these past few weeks, ignoring every other...
He’s stuck in a long meeting and I’m swamped with work at home so we’re sending each other Snapchats of things around us with dicks drawn on them.
Last night was prom. We had an open bar until our enormous tab ran out. 150 grad students, for 3 hours, dressed in the finest outfits our budgets allowed, drank our body weights several times over. The party ended at 1 AM when someone threw a potted plant that someone else puked in off the balcony of the Cuban restaurant that will definitely never host us again. Today is Boy Thing’s 26th...
This was a terrible, terrible, terrible, terrible week. I’m excited for prom and for CHSH pictures. Until then,
He’s in surgery right now and apparently in good spirits, he just feels like an idiot. He’ll be back at work in a few days. It’s his pinkie on his right hand and he’s a leftie, so he’ll be fine. Since he works with kids, I think it’s important to play this up. I have already begun discussing with my mom where we can buy him a tiny hook. It’s important...
My dad lost half his pinkie this afternoon in an...
A Title as Original as Writing a Bulletted List...
I’m incredibly sad not to be able to go to CHSH this year. This’ll be only the second one I’ve ever missed. The first one was because of dental surgery. I’m missing this one for a much more painful ordeal: portfolio review. If you want to see 100 people freaking the fuck out over putting their books together and 100 more people freaking the fuck out over recruiters and...
I don’t know if you know this katie girl but she is quite drunk
Making cool stuff is really, really, really hard
and I highly recommend it.
Favorite to-do/time management app/program?
I managed my entire existence with Appigo’s ToDo + iCal in college, but these days instead of having a dozen things to do I just have a few things that all take a long time to complete, so I’m looking for something that focuses more on time and productivity than items. I’ve been looking at Eternity but I’d prefer something cross-platform. Anyone use something that they...
And now, to hyperventilate that I made the wrong career decision while procrastinating on actual relevant work with Game of Thrones.
Did I just buy a ticket to spend 3 weeks...
I think I did.

Questions about Things I Want
Anyone know of some decent-quality, not-too-thin (so I can wear it on its own) women’s v-necks that come in plenty ‘o’ colors? (Gap stopped making my favorites) Also a good backpack? Also cheap plane tickets? Also convince me not to dye my hair light brown again? Also you’re all lovely?
