Comments on: 2006 eh? http://designnotes.info/?p=850 Testing & Sprinting Mon, 20 Feb 2017 09:49:00 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.7 By: michael http://designnotes.info/?p=850&cpage=1#comment-3077 Fri, 05 Jan 2007 04:50:34 +0000 http://designnotes.info/?p=850#comment-3077 While I’m just a lowly undergrad Callie, I felt the same way after University. It took a very long time for me to get to the level of inspiration that I had when I was in a learning environment – actually six years but who’s counting?

Just from experience it’s amazing where the seeds will grow. Places that I thought would be easy growth didn’t work out while those that you don’t think about much have had interesting results…

Life after grad school has been disappointingly flat. Maybe it’s all this Seattle rain. I’m ready for a geographical change. Just planting lots of seeds right now. Waiting for them to germinate is the hard part.

Johanna – no wonder we keep bumping into each other when there’s a bit of a parallel going on. I appreciate your comments as I just needed to reflect Jan 1st. If there’s one good thing about getting sick, it’s that you appreciate getting back to 100% normal which is where I’m finally back at.

My career started through a blog as well, and I also moved to New York in August. Also, I had been meaning to write a reflective blog post, but have been sick for the past few days. Your story was very inspiring, and I hope as many people as possible read it. Hope you’re feeling perfect by now! Happy 2007.

Brian – I appreciate your time here. It’s always interesting to know who’s coming to my corner of the world and why. I almost miss the snow of Saskatoon and the cold of Edmonton… and thanks.

Randy, we’ll always have msn. I can always count on you to have something smart to say, of course that’s when you’re not mouthing off to me about some cool runningmap app you just created. and thanks.

Caren – It’s funny how I don’t think I could ever get tired of hearing that. and thanks.

We still need to go to Savoy and the Tasting Room, though.

Caren

PS I’ve always loved that UPS photo.

I have been a graphic designer for 17 years and our many “discussions” brought the designer in me back to the forefront. Your blog continues to inspire. Happy new year.

I have been reading some of your posts for a few weeks now. I have to say I was looking for a good blog with content from NYC. Finding one from a fellow designer and Canadian I should add are extras I really enjoy. Since I was there for a workshop a few years ago, I try to stay connected in some ways with the city. But my goal is not to move there. I’d really miss the country living and the snow… Happy new year to you and to all the readers.

Congratulations, you deserve it.
