This weekend the American Apparel Rummage Sale came to London.
28,858 people on Facebook replied as ‘Attending’ the event, myself included… but I’m not going now because it sounds like it got a bit crazy! Read about what happened the first day of the sale here
So I decided I didn’t want to get squashed to death, and was pleased to see that they had added a discount code to the website for 40% off the most requested rummage items – including the item I wanted to buy:
The Helvetica Alphabet T-shirt.
A t-shirt for the Graphic Designer inside everyone… these seem to be pretty popular.
The dilema came when picking which letter to opt for… one that I like the look of? one that has comedy value….. e.g.
Dd, Oo, Uu – get any of those? (If no, then don’t worry because when my internet stops being silly I will show you why they are funny)
Zz, because a Graphic Designer ALWAYS needs more sleep
or my initials (Nn)?
I decided that this is one of those times that having the same letter for both initials was a good thing, so ordered a Nn! I got it in Medium because I hate the T-shirt shape so I thought that I would shape it myself so having plenty of material spare would come in handy!
I will parade around in this like the geek I am – You will be aware when this arrives
Come on, who else wants one? I know the 40% code and I’m willing to share if you admit to being a geek tooooo…
..that I am a disappointment of late!
You might have noticed… but I have been indenial – I thought I could catch up! My 365 has crashed. I made it to 45ish (we are now day 94 of 365) but I found it really hard to keep taking an interesting photo everyday! Especially when I started to get more swamped with college work! So yes. I admit I have failed with that.
ALSO, Thursday marked the first time of another failure – I missed a project deadline! I’m really disappointed with myself because up until now I have always completed everything on time (other than advertising but that wasn’t my fault!) but I made the decision that I wasn’t happy with it and there was no point handing it in incomplete… so Packaging hasn’t been handed in!
On a happier note, I did get a Distinction for my Printmaking module So I’m pleased with that… and I now have this Easter holiday to sort out my final pieces for the Multidisciplinary module
So this Easter holiday will consist of:
and FMP ideas
Aswell of some blogging – a measly 5 posts in March! Pfft! April must be better!
And I am promising myself that this time will be different to all the other holidays! Usually I just laze about, and get out of practice with work and then try and cram everything I need to do into the weekend before I go back BUT you wait… I will be posting all of this week with project developments etc even though I have no Photoshop or Illustrator *sob*
I am excited about Multidisciplinary… though I have so many ideas and so little time! Watch this space!
