Hey there,

It's been a while...sorry but haven't had much excitement going on lately. Update on my life: Arrived in Austin today, woohoo! Cousin's wedding is still a week away and LAF internship a week and a half, but getting close! My fully loaded up car made the long trek, and fared the journey much better than a certain mercury Sable would have. Anywho, it's late and I just wanted to leave an update; a more detailed post is yet to come.

Rocks in Jellies

Today, while babysitting 3 year-old Kate, I was taken back to a time long ago. Little Kate was sporting a sassy pair of hot pink Jellies today, much akin to a pair I once had oh-so long ago. The problem: Rocks in Jellies. We were playing on a playground filled with those colorful yet spiteful tiny rocks, which always manage to find their way into one's jelly shoes. Several times during the brief romp in the play area, Kate had to stop, remove a shoe, and proceed to dump 2-3 rocks out. I feel ya Kate. Jellies were always a popular and stylish form of footwear, but never ceased to fail miserably when it came to playground time. A sneaky rock always managed to work its way between the criss-crossed rubbery lacing and continue to weasel its way to the single most sensitive part of the bottom of my foot where it would firmly wedge itself between said foot and the bottom of my jelly shoe/sandal (not sure on the terminology there). No wonder the jelly fad didn't last...

Kate also told me today that her dad "toots a lot"

I can't come up with anything creative to put here...


I'm sorry I've been neglecting's Truman's fault. Things have been quite busy today. Ceremonies and parties galore with graduation with today along with packing up for the long trek home tomorrow. Let's discuss my mixed feelings about heading home.

First of all, I'm obviously excited for summer, what kind of weirdo wouldn't be? Especially with my internship and sunny Austin awaiting (it was 45 degrees May. That's not ok.) However, I will be gone allllll summer. This means: No impromtu Kirksville trips, no Greek Reunion, no summer concerts in STL, no laying out at Taylor's pool. I would say overall though that I'm happy I'll be spending the summer in Austin doing what I love, graphic designing! lsdkjfa;sldjfs. Speaking of graphic design, I have a link for you today. The following site has brought me many-a-laugh:

Graphic Deisngers: You'll appreciate this

That's all for now. Sorry nothing exciting has been happening with me lately. I'm going to go pack up my life into some Rubbermade Tubs. Peace.

Happy Reading Day!

Once a semester at Truman State University, students are rewarded for all their hard work with the day we all know as Reading Day. Today is that day. Happy Reading Day everyone! Now, as one might infer from its name, Reading Day was created as a class/finals-free study day in the middle of finals week so that students might catch a break and brush up on some extra studying. This is rare. It is currently 1:46 and I'm yet to crack open a book, or even think about it to be quite honest. I have two tests left that I can take at my convenience, and motivation is currently quite hard to come by. Perhaps it has to do with the great news that I recently received an internship at the Lance Armstrong Foundation for the summer in the graphic design department! With summer only 2 days away and this exciting opportunity on the horizon, my concentration levels are at an all time low.

On a completely unrelated note, here is a picture of me and my new precious car:

Ok, I'm now going to pry myself from my computer so I can do something productive with my day. Wish me luck!

It's finally here!

IT'S HERE IT'S HERE! That's right, my highly anticipated and long-awaited website! Actually the majority of people reading this probably accessed it from my website...or had no idea I was making one at all. Anyways, there are still some things I need to work out, but it is online! What a's a link so you can check it out!


I've also finished a video I made in motion graphics; It's stop motion. Believe it or not, the most difficult part was making the paper crane, sheesh those things are confusing!


The Inventor of CSS is a Rude Person

Welp, here I am at 1:16 am the Monday of finals week working on my CSS website. Typical. The most frustrating thing about CSS is that if you try to make one baby, minuscule, minute change in your website, the entire site becomes a hot mess. I'm so close, yet so far. I just ate a pop tart which hopefully will rejuvenate myself along with my love for viscom and inspire me sit here and stare and the screen even longer. Anyways I should probably be web designing rather than blogging, so I'll leave you with this video I made in motion graphics:
