I've modified the rules of this community and everyone should take a look. I've taken a lot of influence of modeling this community after the one over at /r/graphic_design on reddit. As in the past any suggestions or feelings you have over the rules can be discussed here.   

Everyone's been really good tagging their posts recently and that's saved me a ton of time. Thank you so much for tagging your posts appropriately.   
  
Additionally, if your post doesn't show up right away it might have gotten caught in the spam filter. Give me time to sort it out and it will show up in the feed.

If you are a freelancer, or even someone working for salary, you should read this article about contracts. It is heavy on the web design side however there are many parts that translate to graphic design for print and other mediums as well.

Thanks for sharing this. I actually had a question about contracts and found the answer by following links from the article.

I love it when things just work out like that.

There is a podcast created by Debbie Millman on the design observer website. She interviewes a lot of famous designers and the conversations turn out to be really interesting. I'd give it a listen if you have a free moment.

If you haven't heard Aaron Draplin's speech "Tall Tales From a Large Man" then I highly recommend taking some time out of your night to watch it.

This is the website of an inspirational young designer. As they explain on the website, he traveled for a month learning from great designers all over Europe after graduating from his University. I really hope to someday do something like this. I feel the hard part would be to set the entire trip up and get designers to want you to come in the first place. What do you think?

If you go to another Sushi restaurant you are going to the wrong place. This is the best Sushi in town, always has been and always will. The guys at the Sushi bar are always nice and willing to conversate. You know it's a great place if you don't care that you drop $80 every time you go (and I'm always full when I leave so it's worth it).

I'm not quite sure how the other reviewers can find tomato, meat and cheese to be bland food since they're the most rich in flavor of the food groups but to each their own? Anyway, Tomasso's has a few locations. Two on Edgewood and a few others I haven't even been to. I really like the one by the Laundromat near glass road. They have a brick stove and they make the best Detroit deep dish. It's a normal pizza place (what did you expect? Biaggi's? get that chain stuff outa' here!). You get what you pay for. You want a Chicago deep dish? You'll get one but remember it's almost $25 for a large so make sure you pick your toppings right. It takes a while to make so be sure to order ahead and if you decide to eat in you shouldn't go during peak hours, there's not much seating at the one near glass road. Now the one down the street near Boyson road has way more seating and they're alright for the food. I just think the one near glass road is superior to all. Happy eating!

This is the best Chinese restaurant in Cedar Rapids. I usually get General Tso's chicken with fried rice and some crab rangoons but I really do recommend the sweet & sour. I know, I know, it's really common but theirs is so good! Even if I'm on the other side of town, near Pei's, I usually drive all the way over just to get it. If you order to pick up it's ready in less than 15 minutes no matter what time. Be sure to check their site to see what time they're open. Sometimes they're closed right when most would have lunch.
