It’s been a while, but here is an update!

The last year or so of my life has definitely be fast and hectic! Talk about some chaos, but I love it. I realize it has been a while since I have added anything to this site, but life took over for a bit. About two years ago, I was diagnosed with chronic migraines, the daily kind. After going to numerous doctors and nuerologists, it was determined that I shouldn’t do any graphic design until we knew the cause of them. Alas, two years later, there is no knowledge of why I get them.

I gave up working on Graphic Design to do some work for a family member with data tracking. Then after that short bit of time of numerous doctors, and missing my family, I moved back to Iowa. I still get migraines on a regular basis, and I still have a hectic job. Honestly, my high stress environments may be the reason I get them. I am currently working at a medical staffing agency, and I help staff facilities when they are in need of nurses or aides. I send them the people they need, and I get tons of gratitude and praise in return.

My job is still as high stress as can be, and I am still working on computers. However, I haven’t done any design in the last two years…nothing to keep with the times or just to keep my ability tuned in. I do miss it, everyday. I know one day, I will be able to start doing it again. Until then, I am going to just keep learning about new processes, and hopefully, get back to blogging about it. If I can at least provide helpful information to someone else, at least that counts for something.

I was writing a textbook on typography, maybe it is time to get back to reviewing that? Maybe there are questions I can answer for someone out there? I am still going to be around in the Graphic Design world – trust me.


Until next time (hopefully not too far off),

Marga-Daiquiri-Screw-Aloda-On the Beach

Marga-Daiquiri-Screw-Aloda-On the Beach from my favorite song!


What?! Yeah, you read it right. Marga-daiquiri-screw-aloda-on the beach. What is this you ask? Well, if you’re a country fan you may have heard Jerrod Niemann’s “One More Drinkin’ Song”. If you’re not a country fan then 1) shame on you and 2) you can find the video here. In the song, he sings “… my favorite drink, a marga-daiquiri-screw-aloda-on the beach”. Check it out at around the 1 minute mark. Excited, I decided to troll the internet and see if a recipe existed already. No such luck. It’s okay though, because being able to experiment to find the perfect recipe was really, really fun.

Anyway, this drink was so good. So dangerous, but so good. I mean, you can’t really go wrong with a drink that combines a margarita, daiquiri, screwdriver, pina colada and sex on the beach! Give it a try with a couple friends and have…

Ello, mates! How have you been? Things have been especially hectic for me lately (AKA I’ve been pretending to act busy so that people sympathize for me).

Lately, as I’m sure some of you have heard as I have not stopped talking/tweeting/posting about it for the past week, I have been informed that I am a MEDICAL MIRACLE.

(well, not exactly…but I’m running with it)


It means I have have not five but SIX lumbar vertebrae.

My chiropractor has informed me that this is fairly rare, as it occurs in only about 6% of people. Oh I’m sorry, what?


That’s right people. A MEDICAL PHENOMENA.

(Possibly exaggerated slightly, but go with it)

So this is what my spine looks like:


I know it’s kind of hard to see, but on the right, there is a place where part of my spine…
