The madden showdown!

Derek and I played a good ol game of madden football on xbox!! It was late and there was lots of mountain dew, energy drinks, and chocolate chip cookies involved! To my enjoyment I beat him both games we played! 31 to 0 the first game! (he quite that one early cause he wasn’t very happy about it) The second game as you can see got a lot more exciting! There was screaming and jumping and flailing about like crazy people. But I again came out on top beating him 49 to 35!! There was a glimmer of hope for him late in the 4th quarter with like 10 seconds left but he blew it and i ended up getting a victory, rub it in his face, pour salt in the wound touchdown with 4 seconds left in the game!! Good time had by all!

– In his defense he did beat me the other night by one touchdown in overtime! But still, this night is the one that counts!!

– Feel free to leave plenty of comment bashing him!! I will make sure he sees them! =)



The worst time to start a blog ever!!

I really did pick the worst time ever to start up my blog! I didn’t know it was going to be the worst time, it just ended up that way. I’ve been wanting to start it for a long time and so Thursday at work i had Marcus help me get it all up and going. And then Thursday night I started house sitting. And the house i’m at has wireless internet but the family can’t remember the password to it to let me onto it. so for the next 2 1/2 weeks i don’t have convenient internet access. Except for when i’m at work. Even right now I’m on Meagan’s computer so I can’t even post a design and blog about it or anything. I could post a picture of Meg and talk about that but I have a feeling she wouldn’t appreciate it very much. But when i do get back to work… i will be posting a couple videos… so stay tuned!

And if you haven’t already make sure and look at the “the word became” page at the top! I promise this blog will get more interesting! =)


Oh silly lamp!

Filed under: About me!

So I had this favorite lamp in my cubicle at work a while ago. I’m not sure why i loved it so much, some people thought it wash kind of ugly but not me! It had a special place in my heart. I think the reason was more about the personality this little lamp had rather then the amount of light it gave off or the element of decor it brought to my work space!  You see this lamp was really sensitive.  I would turn it on, and it would shine its light. Sometimes the first time but other times it would take a few tries. But never the less I would eventually get it working as any good lamp should.  The funny part about this lamp is that at any given moment the lamp would just shut off and to get it back on I would have to grab the base of it and shake it. The light would flicker a little as i shook it and either turn on… or not, in which case i would continue shaking it until it did turn back on. I was never annoyed at the fact the lamp did this, I would always kind of shake my head, laugh, and enjoy the quarky little personality of my lamp.

This is what i liken my creativity too! Completely sensitive and moody and random and no real solution or remedy for it when it decides to turn off other then awkwardly shaking it around a bit until it turns on again. For example, I’m supposed to be this really creative graphic designer and yet today i sat brain locked for like 20 minutes in trying to fill out the “about” part of my page. Like really?? I can’t even tell you an little bit about me?  Apparently not!

So anyways, just giving you a heads up. My creativity is so incredibly moody so expect nothing less of this blog! =)


The word became… #1

This is a design series I am doing called “The word became…”

This is first of many… the others just aren’t done yet. But don’t worry i have them all up in my head…. somewhere. A little shaking might be needed to get them out!

The idea is simply taking scriptures I love and placing them in and around designs and pictures that I love! My goal is to grow my knowledge of typography. I want the words to be the focus of the designs. Not to say that the pictures wont be beautiful! I love the font used in this one. Its called Velvet!

This scripture is out of Ecclesiastes 3. There is more out of this chapter that I want to use and will probably use this same font for those but we will see….

Hope you enjoy it!
