What is an accomplishment anyway?

I did finish something before the last time I posted. Two somethings. Now, I just can’t seem to finish the incredibly insightful follow-up post I’m working on.

So instead, I will show you the two somethings.

The first is a wedding present for my cousin, and I’m reluctant to post it. The second is 10 years in the making, but I finally did it. I’m also reluctant to post that. Thing is, finishing the present is only the first step. I still have to get it printed, framed and sent, three things I’m notoriously terrible at. The second thing? That too is just a first step. Gee, I know I’m being vague, but I want to keep these things for after the cut.

First, I’ll build anticipation by listing some other recent and ridiculous accomplishments in order to encourage you to find pride in your own little feats:

  1. I thought of AND purchased an excellent Christmas present for my father, who never gets anything good because he doesn’t LIKE anything.
  2. I’ve been keeping my nails manicured and painted: I have not been biting them off!
  3. I finally unclogged my bath drain! (EW!)
  4. I watched seasons 1 and 2 of Californication, which I’ve determined is a) the most 90s show made not in the 90s and b) ‘Dream On’ if ‘Dream On’ wasn’t fucking wretched.

What I have not been able to do:

  1. Persuade Jen to write another post.

What I would like you to do:

  1. Browse the Wallpaper Graduate directory.
  2. Be grateful for the Parsons Institute for Information Mapping.
  3. Love the shit out of Blazers Basketball.
  4. Be kind regarding what’s after the cut…

Accomplishment one:

Karen + Corey

Karen + Corey, a typographic palindrome. I’ll admit it, even the colors aren’t finalized.

Accomplishment two:


That’s right friends, I got my permit. Again. It only took me 3 years to get it the first time, and 7 more years to get another. Count down to license starts now. Please ignore how crappy my hair looks, but do note that sweet nail polish color I’m currently sporting. Just like the guy at the DMV said, (when I scored 100% on my knowledge test, FYI) it’s like I’m 17 again.

    1) That palindrome is gorgeous and incredible. What an excellent present.

    2) I’m addicted to Californication in spite of myself and tend to watch it obsessively to and from work.
