Gosh Darn Knit

Etched Magnolias - Moleskine Cahier Journal Notebook - Gocco Printed - Lined
I have a confession to make. I love notebooks. I love getting new ones and flipping through them for the first time, when they’re crisp. I love filling them up with notes and changing their definition. What was once a bunch of blank pages becomes design notes, then it becomes job interview details, and on and on. When it’s full, it’s a little slice of your life all written down. As a blogger and web designer, I can now type probably twice as fast as I can write (assuming, that is, that I want to be able to read my writing later). There is something romantic and tactile about physically writing something down though.

That being said, I cruise Etsy very often for cool notebook designs. I hit the jackpot when I found goshdarnknit tonight. In addition to the image above, there are these illustrated styles:

Check it out. The notebooks are affordable and each one started as a moleskin so you know it’s quality.

The "Millennials” Are Coming

My boy Ryan Healy was on 60 Minutes tonight. First off, congratulations. Second, what’s with the expose being alarmingly snarky and negative toward our generation? I blame jealousy and a nostalgic “when I was your age” sense that Gen X and the boomers seem to have toward us. “Oh no, they want praise, they’re confident in themselves, they won’t devout countless hours to a company”. Exactly we won’t. Way to alienate your young viewers 60 minutes.

Any press is good press though, especially for Ryan and his site, Employee Evolution. Congrats to him on sticking up for a generation.

Watch as “Morley Safer reports on the new generation of “millennials.” They are in their late teens to early twenties and could be ill prepared for a demanding workplace.”
