bloggin’ for summer



As this summers has progressed i found myself more private and less willing to be open to others about who I am. Ive found observation the best method of learning rather than sharing with others. Although I love to learn about others and them about me, I found myself being judged and even ridiculed (not by fellow students either). Perhaps I should know more than I do, perhaps I should have retained more of my life experiences and perhaps I shouldv’e continued on the tradiational road I was on 10 years ago but I have to stop beating myself and letting others beat me up about taking another avenue. Although I look back and see my mistakes in living color I also apreciate my struggle and the lessons that have come from this journey. It is increasingy frustrating and depressing that I no longer have the opportunities that I once had and that I find myself running around like a chicken with its head cut off looking for new opportunities but I feel like some how some way a new path with new opportunities will open up to me. I am trying to be optimistic and enthusiastic about the future and implent the power of postive thought. I wonder is it this as hard for others or is it just me? I ponder, what’s the point? I contemplate the reality that this is no longer the world of networking and connection but of indirect tweets and blog surfing and wonder where I fit into this new world. I have come to the conclusion that this may very well be my “on the job training”. One of the greatest gifts that has come of this whole experience is gaining knowledge of self. I know who I am and can honestly say I am proud of the person I have become. During my summer pr publications class I learned the art of alignment, the layout of items along invisible but easily identified lines which means way more to me this summer than design publications. My life has aligned with God’s plan and put exactly where i need to be at this very moment. There are invisible but identified lines of life that situations have aligned me with to create a beautiful design, me.

What you say, what you do and who you are

We no longer care what you say.

We care a great deal about what you do.

If you charge for hand raking but use a leaf blower when the client isn’t home
If you sneak into an exercise class because you were on the wait list and it isn’t fair cause you never get a bike
If you snicker behind the boss’s back
If you don’t pay attention in meetings
If you argue with a customer instead of delighting them
If you copy work and pass it off as your own
If you shade the truth a little
If you lobby to preserve the unsustainable status quo
If you network to get, not to give
If you do as little as you can get away with

…then we already know who you are.


I think this blog is great. I beleive peoples actions reflect who they are more then the best words could ever describe them.
