if you love mail…
… you’re a geek. But it’s okay! because i’m a geek too. Especially when I geek out on getting a peel and stick weekly calendar and beautiful swiss pen. This little bundle of joy arrived at my door less than 30 minutes ago and I feel giddy. I started feeling giddy as soon as I got a glimpse of the package through the curtain.
It comes from Quarterly Co., which is a subscription service that lets you subscribe to awesome people on the internet and get real, awesome things from them in the mail. I subscribed to SwissMiss’s Tina Roth Eisenberg, because she is one of my favourite designers/bloggers and I knew that whatever she would send me I would very likely love. Turns out, it was true!
For me, it’s not about collecting things from internet people, though I’ve got to admit, they’ve got a great line-up, it’s more about finding meaning in the somewhat randomness of it. Last time, I received a package with the theme being “what to focus on: happy” and I really needed that reminder at that time.
This time, it’s about getting things done. Check it out:
Today, I needed two reminders: Get goin’ on gettin’ things done! (That mostly means finding a job) and Be true to your interest! (That mostly means getting serious about design).
Tina said she put this package together because she loves side projects and needs to stay organized in order to follow through on everything. She likes being organized, so do I. BAM! Do something about it. (Still need to figure out what but.. you get the idea).
I need to start with me with all my projects. And part of this post is about that. I LOVE getting mail (who doesn’t really?) and why wouldn’t I write a post about loving mail? BAM! True to myself, done.
Also, just for fun, here’s what my checklists normally look like:
On two different papers, messy, no sense of date, yuck! Now i’ll be as organized as ever!
