Which, if you think about it, is equal parts Huh? and equal parts o_O.
Sadly, I didn't keep that promise to myself. There was a push to finish my last semester of college, then a stint with a personal trainer (for health!), then not one but two cross country moves. In between there was a short unemployed period which was still long enough to add to the bottom line.
For a year I knew I was in trouble again but with everything else going on I couldn't tackle it. Once I was in the job in Maryland and settled, I was able to really wrap my brain around the total damage. But even then I was sure I could chip away at it enough to make a difference. I think that was out of stubbornness and embarrassment really. Finally I realized the grown up thing to do was to move in with friends and aggressively pay down the debt. It's not been fun and I miss living alone even though the friends couldn't be nicer. But it's all been worth it as in a year and a half (barring life throwing me any more curve balls) I should be debt free - again. For good this time, damn it.
"Thanks to the internet and social media, what followed the introduction of the new packaging were not a few unnerving backyard conversations with eccentric neighbors, but an outpouring of complaints from consumers as well as demands that the suddenly beloved previous packaging be reinstated."
The above is in reference to the Tropicana rebrand attempt in 2009. I didn't write to the company but I was most definitely in the camp that noticed and disliked the change. It pleases me that I am friends with people who also notice such things. But I've also had enough experiences with people telling me that how a report looks, or the choice of font, or the kerning in a heading doesn't matter to still be a bit self conscious about my predilection for armchair designing.
I know a proper font won't cure cancer but let's face it - what are the odds I'll be the one curing cancer? But knowing an exclamation point is out of proportion with the rest of the lettering on a presidential campaign logo, now that I've got down. Play to your strengths, I always say.
