TypeKit, New Friends & The Mistake
I had the pleasure of making new friends at the start of the week due to the AEA conference. Friends that I have met on Twitter, but hadn’t yet had the opportunity to spend time with in person. I’ve come to realize that one of the most important details in life is creating new friendships and laughing. I certainty had a lot of that the past two days. From meeting up with friends at the Media Temple party in SOMA to going to the Typekit closing party in the Mission. The in between stages of dinner, taking BART and enjoying life with people was certainly the highlight of my week
I have decided that instead of just talking about things I want to do, I am really putting my foot down for 2012 and really doing them. It may mean less tweeting (Yay for you guys! I know I tweet often) and less time on social media. But it will also increase social media. By doing, and then displaying what I am completing, it will bring a lot more influence and insight to you. I figure, it’s a win, win situation! So this week, making new friends and going to events was apart of my #DoNotTalk goal. Sometimes I just want to curl up in my bed and watch Ancient Aliens all night. But it’s great to get out and meet new people and build relationships that I’ll have for the rest of my life.
On the other hand, I do make bad decisions. I wore the wrong shoes.
I wore them to work, wore them to dinner, then wore them to the Mission for the Typekit closing party. I am way home, I had an older business man walk me to my stop, to make sure I got on my cable car safely. He said he saw me struggling in my shoes and suggested that I keep an extra pair of flats in my purse next time. Then after said I was an angel. It was so kind and not creepy. It’s amazing the quality of people you meet in the city. We didn’t exchange names, it was very un formal, but he left as soon as my cable car appeared. Almost as if he was an angel. I was really thankful for that, because I was feeling uneasy walking home late at night, in shoes I could hardly walk in. Yet someone, kind enough, took the courtesy to walk me my stop.
Overall, I’ve learned many lessons this week. Which will always some how tie into design, work and moving towards my goals.
