Meme Me

It’s no secret that my friends and I are in love with Arrested Development. Back in the dawning days of Netflix, I discovered the Jason Bateman show and was immediately intrigued. There’s too many quotable characters and hilarious scenarios to not become obsessed. So one day I was bored at work home, and I created my first Arrested Development Meme: BORQeuzCMAACvhA

Ten things I miss most about being an Art student

I graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno in one of the most coveted Journalism schools, The Reynolds School of Journalism. I studied everything from broadcast to graphic design, PR, copywriting, and strategic marketing. While my biggest passion was in advertising at The Reynolds School, I received a minor in Art. You may say that art goes very well coupled with a degree in marketing, and to an extent you would be correct! I learned all the programs through my art classes, and everything about good design; however, my art projects were always completely different than anything I ever did at The Reynolds School. I had a lot of fun times and weird experiences in my art classes, and I’d like to share with you the top 10 moments of my career as an art student:

Your font horoscope

As a writer and designer, I tend to spend a lot of time obsessing over font style. There are some styles that I prefer over others, and some styles that should just be eliminated from existence immediately. Type faces can range from crazy eccentric to super dull, and the font you use on a day to day basis can say a lot about you as a person. Here are some different type faces, and what they could potentially say about you.

*Disclaimer* If this offends you users of fonts that I despise, my deepest condolences.

14 Resolutions for ’14

Back in 2012, I resolved that 2013 would be an amazing year. And like every fortune cookie I’ve ever cracked open at Panda Express, that resolution came true! I don’t want to toot my own horn or anything, but I’m a bit of a goal-getter (is that a thing?) and in order to reach goals, you must set goals. In just a few days, 2014 will be upon us, so I have compiled a list of 14 of my own personal resolutions for the new year. Feel free to resolve to follow my list, or come up with some of your own resolutions. Happy New Year!

Biggest Little Santa Crawl

This past weekend, my hometown was host to one of the largest pub crawl events, called The Santa Crawl.  Thousands of Santas, elves, reindeer, and general snow hos, roam the streets of downtown in search of great drink prices (generally not great) and good times. I’m always in for a good time, and the Santa Crawl is no exception.

I started my trek for the perfect Santa Crawl by selecting a crawl-worthy ensemble. My “Bah-Humbug” attitude led me to a sweater I found on Amazon.com:
