My brother’s college graduation is tomorrow. I cannot believe it. I’m so proud of him. He’s graduating with a BFA in Sculpture. I know he will go on to do great things.
^^ Me & Rob. Summer of 1990? Maybe ’91? ^^
^^ Thanksgiving 2005, I think. No idea what’s with the weird faces. Ignore the bangs I am growing out. ^^
^^ July, 2010 – wedding day. ^^
I’ll make sure to take one tomorrow and update this post with it. I wish I had access right now to more of the pictures our parents took of us growing up. There are so many albums but they are all in NJ.
Today’s Blog Every Day in May…
Today’s prompt is supposed to be: Day 16, Thursday: Something difficult about your “lot in life” and how you’re working to overcome it.
I actually am pretty happy with my life right now. Sure, I have issues – if you are a living breathing human being you probably do too. There was a time when I might have shared those issues online with random strangers who might be reading this blog, but I’d rather focus on the positive.
So instead, I’m going to do a prompt that I missed earlier in the month:
Day 4: Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, etc) and why you love it.
“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.“
–Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I love this quote because it speaks to minimalism. In writing, in decorating, in writing code – I always want to keep it simple while still getting the most out of whatever it is I’m doing. Maybe this won’t exactly make sense, but – why write 10 sentences when 3 can do say the same? Why write 10 lines of code when you can get the same output with 3 lines? Why fill a home with unused possessions when you can enjoy it for the lack of stuff?
I get that not everyone is a minimalist, but I definitely am, and that’s why I love this quote.
