Change the World

Post-It Note world. 
One epic evening in the lighting studio with a couple of great people.

"If you're not doing something with your life, then it doesn't matter how long you live. If you're doing something with your life, then it doesn't matter how short your life may be. A life is not measured by years lived, but by its usefulness. If you are giving, loving, serving, helping, encouraging, and adding value to others, then you're living a life that counts."

I want to do something to help change the world. I haven't figured out how I'm going to do it yet...But one day, I will help out a little bit.

One of my life goals is to start a non-profit. I'm thinking in design somehow. I started thinking about my summer with the Upward Bound Math Science program. (I miss those kids and I am super bummed I won't be returning this summer...) I think I want to start a program that will be associated with the company I will start later on down the road. It will bring in high school students who have an interest in graphic design. Something, maybe like a summer camp, where the kids will come in and we will teach them about design, what college classes are like, and how the real world works. (Marlon and I have already discussed this a bit. So maybe I kind of have figured it out...)

I think education is huge, especially getting a college education. Even though right now, with the economy the way it is, having it may not seem legit. Sometimes I don't think students realize that you can get a degree for making super sweet designs. Plus, I have seen a lot of talented people waste their talent because they think that getting a degree in business or something else will suit them better (no offense to people who major in business or anything else!) I just don't think the resources are always there to open students eyes to what else is out there.

I have huge life goals don't I? Hope I achieve them all...

"A picture of your favorite band or artist.

I have such a difficult time with that question. My musical tastes are always, always changing. 

But right now, I heart:
-The talented and inspiring Miss Caitlin Crosby. I love her songs and what she sings about. 
-The Daylights, of course. Epic band. If you haven't listened to them, go. Do it. 
-And the ever great Cobra Starship, for when I want to get my dance on. 

I'm off to go doodle...or something. I'm working on product prototypes. Kind of. Working on ideas anyways. I've got some crafty things a-brewing. 



  1. Yeah cobra! I like the post it globe picture too.

  2. Yeah, I've been on a Cobra kick lately. It reminds me of Product/ID :)

    And yes, that globe is pretty epic. You did good.
