Note To Self.
Design is very much about filtering through crap.
Whether it be your professors, peers or even people you look up to, there’s so much…stuff that’s told to you about design on a regular basis.
Work hard. Work a lot. Work intelligently. That’s just the basics.
Remember to be honest with yourself. Learn to go with your gut feeling.
Take a step back. You have a good eye. Don’t let it get muddled up by other shit.
It probably means something when your studio professor/the head of the Industrial Design department comes up to you after studio and tells you that you work too hard and that it’s okay for you to take it easy because your work is already good.
It’s been a long week.
You were looking for the key for years / But the door was always open
“ In a more collective society we realize, from the inside, that our own well being is deeply tied to the well-being of others. Danger is shared. Pain is shared. Joy is shared. Achievement is shared. Houses are shared. Food is shared. Ubuntu asks us to open our hearts and to share. ”

How the hell is it already 1AM. It was like 1PM like 5 minutes ago.
I’ve had 3 cups of coffee today.
Hot glue guns are the best things ever…EVER.

“ The world is a sneaky place, but it can be kind of fun if you can figure it out. ”

I guess this is one of those times that I’m reminded how not invincible I am. As a healthy 21 year old guy, I often feel like nothing can hurt me. That I can pretty much do anything and walk away unscathed. That things like sickness and accidents happen to other people. It’s dumb, I know.
Well, my body has been getting rocked this past week. Literally can’t sleep at night because I’m too busy coughing my intestines out.
Overdosing on vitamins, cough medicine and flu pills tonight. Time to kill this bietch.
