First, there’s this: http://www.fastcodesign.com/1670019/10-steps-to-designing-an-amazing-infographic . a Blog may not be a bad place to post good links. Better yet, find a place that does that. I’m certain there’s something out there.
Second, why don’t you try blogging about your health and related things. Remember, the body has 5 levels of state in regards pain:
-2. pain from dying
-1. pain from being in bad health
0. normal status
+1. pain from health getting better
+2. no pain for feeling better
Stewart Brand said, “We are as Gods and might as well get good at it.” This should apply to everything in life. Mental, physical, and spiritual health. … Blog. Blog the shit out of what you’re doing. Make note of how poorly you spend your minutes and hours. How often you waste time in a semi-vegetated state. How often you blow hours during the day and at night in a slow-learning state, when you could be using those hours actively or sleeping (respectively)? How often do you spend real quality time with your family when you have it? Too tired? Too unhappy? Take some fucking responsibility for yourself. You say you’re a Humanist, be one. Don’t skip the small by looking at the big. Be the big. Be positive. If you look at things positively then you remove the negativity harming yourself and those around you. When you focus, you focus. You don’t make excuses. You say, “I’ve done this much, I can do a little more.” Always a little more. That’s how you know you’re trying.
Be fit. Be fast. Be healthy. Be active. Be your future. Always be your future. Be who you’ve never been before. Don’t just be new. Be evolved. Master your body and mind. We are as Gods. Start acting like it. Only thencan we get good at it.

It’s 02012Jun18 23.36 (11:36PM) and currently I’m listening to “Lesser Heaven” by Brian Eno from his albumSmall Craft on a Milk Sea. The album, at this point, I’m only sort of on board with. This track is gorgeous though and utilizes the same sounds that could be found on the iOS appBloom. I own the album, but the track happens to be on my Brian Eno list in Muse/Pandora.
I may have mentioned this before, but I’m looking forward to someone recreating the Harry Potter movies scene by scene using only Animated GIFs. I’m certain they nearly all exist already on the internet. Also, if there isn’t one, there should be a Harry Potter animated GIF repository on the internet.
Currently I’m hoping to learn a bit about how sound works as far as acoustics, electronics, speakers, etc. As much as I use and work with these things, I really know nothing about them. It’s mostly part of research I’m doing in RE a well designed iPod stand. We’ll start there and maybe it will become more. Ideally it will be flexible for any iPod/Phone/Touch device vertically or horizontally. I’m also strongly trying to apply Dieter Ram’sDesign Ethos. They are:
GOOD DESIGN should be
thorough down to the last detail
as little design as possible
I have already begun sketches, - but research should be thorough. I’m really just doing this to see if I can apply my Design skills (which are being learned in Visual Communication) to some sort of industrial or cross-media design. So I’m even taking into account cost and efficiency and yadda-yadda. All one step at a time.
That is all.
My blogs all started as a school blogger. But the more into my studies I get, the more it becomes a summer blog. Go figure.
This has now been connected and will serve as the primary blog and “up-to-date” source of info in regards studies and stuff - as part of my official website and portfolio: www.geodesicdesn.com
I’ve actually purchased a blog theme for Tumblr, but I didn’t really like it that much. Hmmm… bad late night purchase! 12:25AM now ~ time for sleep. Tomorrow is the first day of summer. I have a long list of stuff to do that by the end of the summer I’ll be saying, “OMFG what happened? Why did I not do a single damn thing?!”
I’m fortunate for one thing (well besides everything else): “…Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.”
Combining two words to make one. I fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu********** hate them.
… Coupled with “catchy” slogans like “Goodness Inside” I saw on the side of a box the other day. … Marketing makes me want to puke. Anyone can put two words together and keep up with a trend. Joetastic. There. I just did it.
And now we can move on. (this is how I abbreviate a ranting blog post I’ve been wanting to do for a week or so)
Things I find strangely pretty: dust swimming in the afternoon sun.
