Today I wasn't really planning on getting a Shamrock Shake but my roommate was going to McDonald's and knew he wouldn't like having to order it I asked nicely if he could get me one. His response was "in drive thru. Will do." Then I got another response of "They asked if it was for "that Wendy girl" You've got a rep." I probably should have specified the size because I think he got me a large. I may need a nap after this.

I did end up sleeping in again. :( But when I did finally drag myself out of bed I did do my workout so that was a good way to wake up. I was so busy running around I didn't eat breakfast so I guess eating the above plate wasn't too bad for me.

Busy Busy.. I'm glad I did have a calm moment when I got to watch Venture Bros Season 4 Vol 1 this morning before work. I didn't realize the new season had come out yet. Go Team Venture!

Over the weekend my boss went down to Connecticut and stopped and grabbed cupcakes from a local shop near her parents' house. I found two cupcakes on my desk this morning wrapped up for me. I don't think dieting is possible working here.
10 Lessons for young designers
1: Be authentic. The most powerful asset you have is your individuality, what makes you unique. It’s time to stop listening to others on what you should do.
2: Work harder than anyone else and you will always benefit from the effort.
3: Get off the computer and connect with real people and culture. Life is visceral.
4: Constantly improve your craft. Make things with your hands. Innovation in thinking is not enough.
5: Travel as much as you can. It is a humbling and inspiring experience to learn just how much you don’t know.
6: Being original is still king, especially in this tech-driven, group-grope world.
7: Try not to work for stupid people or you’ll soon become one of them.
8: Instinct and intuition are all-powerful. Learn to trust them.
9: The Golden Rule actually works. Do good.
10: If all else fails, No. 2 is the greatest competitive advantage of any career.

It had been awhile but I finally got to go for a walk in the city forest. I was glad that I grabbed my LLBean stablizers because majority of the trails were covered in ice. I actually got stopped and asked what was on my feet because some people were struggling on the trails. I didn't fall down once.
