January thoughts..

This is a great quote that I worked on as part of a pitch for a freelance project. Originally said by Frederick Buechner, I can't help but take it as a great inspiration for a resolution. Although about 13 days late, I'll say that my New Years' Resolution will be to find and keep a big purpose!

Looking back at my post from a year ago this time, I think I actually kept all of my resolutions! So.. let's hope I find my big purpose sometime in 2014 ;)

Overheard at the office..

It's funny the metaphors we come up with to try to explain the inner-workings of the web or the back-end of a website. Pretty sure that half the time no one knows what we're the heck we're talking about..

Errands in suburbia

Running my last few errands before the big move.. My sister saw this outfit and said it was "shabby chic" ..... so here you have it. Me and my mom's Prius about to head out for a few things. How surburban of me. Ahh I'm going to miss living at home!

Mastering french braiding and selfie photography

Well, it wasn't rocket science learning how to french-braid, but photographing my own turned out to be much more difficult to master. I spent the previous 21 years of my life without ever learning how to french braid my own bangs. I tried a couple times and failed miserably, and gave up after that. I don't know what I found so difficult about it now, because I finally sat myself down with a YouTube tutorial and figured it all out. Turns out, it wasn't rocket science after all.

Here's the video I watched that helped me do my first few braids. It's an adorable new mom whose cats keep meowing in the background, but nonetheless a very good braider and explainer.

And now, some miserably failed selfies. Enjoy.

Oh hey, forehead!

Looking forlornly down my own top.

Closer, but more a macro shot of my pores and sunspots...

Did I tell you I got new earrings? Also, what's up, armpit?

Har har. Happy Tuesday tomorrow!!
