I’m not even sure anymore who follows this blog, but this will probably be one (if not the most) very personal entry. I don’t keep a paper journal, and it’s for these types of things that I wish I did. Perhaps I will start one. But I’m mostly writing this for posterity’s sake. I feel some intense need to mark this day as important. Let’s start at the...
Talk about experiential.
So I’ve been meaning to post this for a couple days now, but I guess now is as good a time as any. Not sure how many of you were familiar with Dodge’s “Find a Journey” campaign (www.youtube.com/dodge). Well, the gist of it was that they had three scavenger hunts for their new model, the Journey. They hid 3 of them around the country - one on the west coast, one in the...
Rainy days and window displays
Chris and I both had the day off today. We decided to run some errands and generally just tootle around. There’s a brewing supply store in Pembroke that I’ve been meaning to check out (www.kettletokeg.com). The owner, Jesse, was a super cool guy and was really helpful with all my questions about making my own cider. But what caught our attention when we pulled up to the store was how...
A brief reflection
So the summer is over. I’m still living with my parents. The house isn’t finished. I really dropped the ball on this blog. Now that fall has greeted us with the promise of crisp air and beautiful scenery, I, too, need to take the opportunity for some change. I need to refocus my attentions on what interests me and be more active in sharing those thoughts - whether it be reblogging...
I haven't forgotten about you, Tumblr
I have been so busy. I’m sorry internets. Working at the bank has really warped my abilities to do anything but count money. But I’m back. I’m ramping up to start something awesome. I’m going to find an awesome job and Internets, you’re going to help me do it. Thanks to rebecca for nagging me about failing to update this - please keep at it. But I think things are...

museumofusefulthings: This week we surpassed 10.000 friends and followers on Tumblr. As a token of our appreciation, we’d like to extend a 10% discount* at our online store, the Museum of Useful Things, to all of our Tumblr friends. A little about us: We are a utilitarian based, design centric web-store…. Buy stuff from here.
I’ve been scolded for not updating in days. I’m sorry! This is probably due to the fact that I got a job. I’m now technically employed. Working part time as a bank teller. Yeah, it’s decent, we’ll see where it goes! So I’ve been intensively training for that and not doug much else. Painting has slowed. Between me working and Chris going to Kentucky, not much...
My 5 year high school reunion was this weekend. Seems that both a lot and nothing has changed. It went better than I was anticipating, which is nice. Stayed with Rebecca and Eric and ate amazing cake. Today I woke up and felt like doing lots of things but was too uninspired to anything specifically. Then Chris and I went to concord and…well…I’ll post photos of how the rest of my...
One of the agreements my parents and I had when Chris and I moved back home is that we’d paint the house. It’s been a week and we’ve been hanging out, but now it’s time to get to work. We got supplies and such yesterday and today Chris and I started scraping. And of course it’s supposed to get up to 100 degrees today. Ugh. We’re inside now eating popsicles and...
Let's try this again.
So I’ve done what I’ve been meaning to do for a long time. Actually started a blog. I’m not 100% sure about what I will be writing, or what purpose this blog will serve. Will anyone read it? Doubtful - but I’ll be able to look back on it (hopefully fondly). Why am I doing this? Well, I’ve just moved back home and I actually will have time to do it. I don’t...

beginning a foray into the future
So this SoMe thing…it’s the future. It is the future of communications not just between us people, but between companies and people, consumers and product. Is that weird? Is there time for us to determine its weirdness before it becomes the norm and then becomes outdated? I was listening to On Point with Tom Ashbrook (i love this show) tonight and one segment was about how texting is...
I don't understand.
Tumblr. You are so foreign to me. You are everything and nothing. I don’t understand. Am I getting old? Have I already passed on to the younger kids knowing things I know nothing of? How can this be? I will fight to keep my grasp on being young via technology. But is it too much? I don’t even know anymore. lisa and scott, this one’s for you.
