“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”

—Steve Jobs

Remember these posters by Shepard Fairey? They were so appealing and fun to make. They were a huge trend. I did have hope and thought Obama made progress. I am grateful.

mistakes

“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
― Albert Einstein

Last week I had a day where I made a lot of mistakes and my new boss was pointing them out to me. The mistakes were all things I had never dealt with before, or little comedies of errors.

to store everything in there
