Endless to-do's!

Well hello there mr. blog. It's been a while, hasn't it? Work has been a tad slower this week, and I just finished doing quite a bit of traveling, so my mind has been in the concept of cleaning, organizing, purging, and so on.

I definitely have a short attention span, and I hate cleaning, so getting organized is very hard for me. I get excited about it, but then inevitably, I get tired, distracted, overwhelmed, or bored.

However, I am finding that doing a little each day does help. Further from that, who knows. I feel as though I just will never ever finish. From deleting, archiving or responding to emails, to updating my portfolio, to sending off birthday cards and thank yous, to cleaning out junk mail, paying and filing bills, where does it end?

I've found a few tools to help, one of which I can't wait to try when I get home tonight. It's called PaperKarma. It's an iphone app that you use to capture an image of your various junk mail, and then the app takes care of unsubscribing you from nagging unwelcome catalog subscriptions and credit card apps (which really are the bain of my existence).

Anyone have any other organizational tips?

heck out this cool inital cap I am testing out. It's by typographer and designer Jessica Hiche, whose work is quite inspiring. She runs a fun blog where she posts a new initial cap every day called Daily Drop Cap.

Travel Travel Travel

As specified in my post earlier this year, I'm finally getting to do some much needed and wanted travel! In May I went to Texas (College Station & Houston), Turks & Caicos, Portland, Washington (Quincy) and San Diego. Whew! So much fun!

Well, this Friday I leave for Mexico - I'm gonna hang out on the beach (just south of Playa del Carmen) with Alexandra. I'm keeping this tan all summer!


New Work

Work has been busy, which keeps me from updating this blog with my non-work oriented fun stuff. I'll get to that soon, but in the meantime check out some new interactive work I did for Sprint 4G Gaming on my portfolio blog:

Cheetos Mighty Zingers

After 9 mos of hard and tedious work, my TV spots are finally complete and live! Tune into late night TBS, Comedy Central, MTV, VH1 and Adult Swim or prime-time NBC around shows like the Office or Parks and Recreation and you'll hopefully catch them.

The spots are for a new Cheetos product called Cheetos Mighty Zingers, smaller cheetos that are packed 2 flavors to a bag—Cheddar and Salsa or Cajun and Ranch.

Here's a few highlights from the spots "Observation" and "Experimental Experiment."

Here's links to the spots on YouTube:

Experimental Experiment:


There's an online campaign as well. Wednesday, March 31, catch our online partnership units running on YouTube, Funny or Die, and Slate. Additional smaller units will continue to run after that day.

motivator within a motivator

hopefully this topic isnt getting too old yet - but my most recent fitness goal is to gym 3-4x a week, with the emphasis on 4. I use an application from my gym called Wellpower to track my gym visits—it's a good motivator to be able to log in the next morning and see the number go up. I felt compelled to celebrate how my graph looks when i saw the yellow bar today - i can visually see the change that my new fitness goal has had. It's a motivator within a motivator. Let's hope I keep it up! At least my booty is looking nicer :)

a small rant

When it comes to conservation, recycling, composting, etc, there are different levels of laziness that i see at my agency. One that I cannot stand is throwing things into the wrong bin—like throwing a used compostable plate with a knapkin and leftover foods bits into an office trash can. Move your ass to the kitchen and put it in the compost bin!

Even worse is the reason for this rant- throwing a recyclable container into the recycle bin, with food in it, ie a full serving of sushi. Hey slappass—take off the lid, dump the sushi in the compost bin to your right, and then throw the lid and container into the recycle bin. So easy a child could do it.

It just amazes me how much this agency does to make it easy for everyone to do small things in the name of sustainability and most people cannot even take a second to think and participate!
