Behind-the-scenes, project research, new ideas, and trip snippets.

Daily—Triangle Chocolate, Nerf Guns, WingStop

[su_heading]10:12AM[/su_heading] On the phone this morning speaking to an automated replier for 10 minutes. Having an automated system certainly keeps the process efficient for the company, but man, do I hate talking to a machine. They're not flexible, can't be creative, and there's absolutely no negotiation. It's...

Daily—49ers Shirts, Blank Desk, Shotgun, Secret Santa

I didn't mention it in every post, but this is the 4th day I've spent packing. First were the pillows. Then, the shirts came in. Soon followed by more pillows. When the process becomes repetitive and boring like my daily pooping ritual, I'd skip over that...

Daily—49ers shirts are here

Appreciate your support and patience. Spent the night packing all the orders. Yours will be on its way first thing in the morning. [su_divider top="no"] [aside]10:24AM[/aside] This certainly shouldn't have been my first drink in the morning. Too much sugar, not enough caffein. First generation "Nest" thermostat. [su_divider top="no"] [aside]12:20PM[/aside] Work, work, and...

Daily—Just Keep Writing

Today's one of those days where my determination's being tested. I'm exhausted and I'm already in bed. I start to come up with excuses to postpone my post. -I have no idea what to write and captioning my day is just boring. -I'll definitely have a better idea...

Daily—Berkeley Hats, Michelle Self-Rev

Very long day. I'd have to keep this post short before I pass out and slam my face on the keyboard. Michelle just had her grad show today, it was a success. All her cohorts had also performed their pieces brilliantly. It was courageous for each of...

Daily—Tech Rehearsal, Super7, Super Burrito

Michelle's having her graduation show, also known as the self revelatory performance (self-rev), tomorrow. Today's the rehearsal day for Michelle. She's gotta nail it. [aside]10:12AM[/aside] First thing's first—breakfast. For champions. Can't go wrong with ham and eggs. [aside]10:43AM[/aside] Last minute preps for her big show tomorrow. [aside]11:52AM[/aside] The street art of San Francisco never...

Daily—Plushtography, KoJa, AAU

Chance favors the prepared mind. Or in this case, prepared vendor. Plushtography is the brand I founded with two high school friends, Kevin & Christine. We all exert our own strengths and we share one thing in common—a love for photography (except for Christine, actually. She's just...

Daily—Ranch99, Home Depot, Props

They say the best part of a project is not the result, but the process. I agree, but not all parts of the process is as engaging as the direct development of the product. Errands, they're not the most delightful steps of realizing a project, but...

Daily—ThinkGeek, Army of Ants, Puma

Today's been a terribly long day. Ironically, I have little pictures to show for it. I suppose when you're engulfed in a project, everything around you that takes any less of your full attention would just fade away. At least that's what happened to me. I...

Daily—AggieTV, CREAM, BeSeen Magazine

Documenting every aspects of my day turn out to be too time consuming and laborious. (no shit.) Plus, I don't learn much of myself from all the fluff I wrote, neither.  So I'm now in the process of trimming the fat for each post and preserving...
