What I Read in January

The Assistants: I liked this one a lot. It was a quick, easy read, but with some substance. It’s being turned into a movie and it kind of felt like I was reading a movie, but that doesn’t necessarily bother me. The Anatomy of Dreams: Hmm. I kind of liked this … Read more ››

A Few Good Links

No solid plans over here, but I am hoping to finish my Unit Three project for my design course (or ya know, start it anyway) – it’s all about space planning/furniture arrangement, furniture styles, and warm and cool colors, among other things…also planning to … Read more ››
