Woke up thinking: I am here to learn.
Also am missing Japan. Upon seeing a poster titled “Setagaya Life” on my Tumblr feed, I started getting the feels. The energy, the exuberance of the city. I love it so! I crave wandering the streets again. In the day time, by myself. At night, with Duncan, holding hands.
Re: I am here to learn. I think I am telling myself: I am here at this job, I have the opportunity to transfer teams, I only must wait it out. If it eventually doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen, but at least I tried my best, was humble, and learned a few things.

After 15 or 20 years I discovered that design is just language and the real issue is what you use that language to do. Now I’m at a point where I’m tired of talking about what kind of accents to use. I want to talk about the words that are being said.
What is said determines who listens and who understands. Graphic design is a language, but graphic designers are so busy worrying about the nuances–accents, punctuation and so on–that they spend little time thinking about what the words add up to. I’m interested in using our communication skills to change the way things are.”
