Minimalist Wardrobe FTW!

“You’ll see I wear only gray or blue suits,” [Obama] said. “I’m trying to pare down decisions. I don’t want to make decisions about what I’m eating or wearing. Because I have too many other decisions to make.”

Why do we have all of these options?

  • Blue suit or black suit?
  • Black, Gray, or Blue Pants?
  • Polo or Button-Up?
  • Which color shirt works best?
  • Which of these ties goes with the shirt/pant combo?

Unsolicited Redesign #1 – Redbox Email

I have the “Design Bug,” which is a clinical way of saying that I find myself wondering how I could improve experiences that I have. Redesigning things is fun and relaxing, and can also be a good way to demonstrate design process.

Formatting note: Over the first few Unsolicited Redesigns, I will be working on the form and function of these posts. Please feel free to send your feedback.

Who’s Afraid of Clowns?

I’m a big fan of the What to Draw app on Android, which gives random sketch prompts. This one stood out to me as being something that would be fun.

A food, wearing rings/ear-rings/piercings, running away from a clown on the street.

The Big Three Zero

Today, I’m crossing over a major milestone. I suppose this makes me an adult. The average age of retirement is over sixty years old, which means that I still have all of the life I have lived before I even retire. This is great news because I have plenty of time to grow and explore!
