Yesterday, Stacy (my boss at Tonic) offered me a paid position at the end of my internship after the first week back to school. I'm officially a graphic designer now. It's super exciting and you all are going to have to go celebrate with me once I get a bit of cash in my account again. Wish me luck!

Old Quote List

Theses quotes have been floating on my comp. for a long, long time and I didn't want to delete them, but they need a new home.... that new home being here! The summer quote list will be up here as soon as summer ends :D

Be who you are. Say what you feel. Those who matter, won't mind. Those who mind, don't matter. - Dr. Seuss  

Hal Wert: "Historians are looking in a black room for a black cat, Theologians are looking in a black room for a black cat that isn't there, and Philosophers are looking in a black room for a black cat that isn't there, but keep screaming, "I'VE GOT IT!""  

The sexy chick to James Bond while laying on top of him: "You can have me anywhere." Josh: "On a train in the rain? On a box with a fox?"  

Katie as we're playing Super Smash Brothers: "Okay that's it! You are no longer welcome on my magical platform.... of... trust..."  
Me: I think I'd like to name a dog something completely random. Like Lamp Shade, Elmer's Glue, or belly button." 
Katie: Left Foot 
Me: Marco Polo 
Katie: *breaks into sign language* Tree Leaf Hot Dog Apple! 

Kat: "It's in London, so it must be French." 

Joe: I'm going to get a Botox injection in my balls.
Bo: Do you have any idea how much that would hurt? 
Joe: Yeah but I'd have the smoothest balls in the world! They'd be like eggs...  

"It is not merely happiness we all seek. We seek some place where we belong. For the lucky few, we find it in childhood with our own families. But for most of us we spend our adult lives seeking that place or person or organization that makes us feel that we are important, that we matter, and that without us something would go undone and undoable. We all need to feel that we are irreplaceable."  

Sherry Sparks, talking about the letter Russell wrote, "Don't show this to your parents..."  

Nick: If I were a tree, you'd be my leaves. 
Mom: If you were a tree you'd shit acorns.  

Nick: Do you believe in mercy killings? 

Nick Garvey: Holy shit. It's like you're working for the president or something. "Uh, Ms. Gallagher, we need you to pee in this cup, then we need a sample of your blood, and do you mind filling out this form, it just tells us about every bank transaction you've done in your life, along with what you've eaten in the past 42 hours. Oh and uh... we need a sample of your hair, and a toenail clipping from your left pinky toe. But that should do it.. besides the tank driving test, we wanna make sure that you can fire a missile from far distances. Any questions?"  

Pizza guy: I keep trying to tell my girlfriend she should come to school here. 
Me: Yeah, that would be cool. We don't bite... at least most of us don't. 
Pizza guy: And those of you that do probably have to wear some sort of tag or wrist band, right?  

Jon-boy: I'm just expressing myself and sometimes, when that happens, swear words come out.  

Eppelheimer: it's like a sea of widows!  

Mo: It's raining cats and dogs outside 
Sean: It's raining dogs and pigeons.  

Dustin: I really just want to get naked and run through the woods right now.  

Kidwell: That's a cute little car. It's blue! 
Me: Is it yours? 
Kidwell: No. I spilled yogurt on my shirt earlier and I'm not too happy about it.

Jumanji Porch

I've been thinking about the movie Jumanji a lot in my adult life, I and thought it was epically awesome when I looked onto my front porch and found a chair tipped, but held up with vines. It was really kind of exciting. I took pictures. Hush.

Busy Bee

Between the mural project, my internship at Tonic, and my volunteer work, I had a thirteen hour work day. I'm feeling mighty exhausted, but I'm also feeling pretty darn good. I hope to get some real work done involving my business cards and website soon. I really, really do. Anyway, here are some pictures from my night of volunteering, enjoy!

Kauffman Center Mural Project

We're on day twenty of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts mural expedition. Things are coming along really, really well. I put all the updates of the progress on the Kauffman Share Space Blog which can be found HERE. Not only are there updates, but you can see photos I take each work day, find out about issues that arise, see the community connections we're making, and even see a few video clips that I'm taking every now and then. I hope you'll check it out!
