"I think we’re both going through a quarter-life crisis right now."
"What does that mean?"
"Well, so much of your energy in college, and immediately afterwards, goes into finding that first job. Then you finally get a job, and you get settled in, and you get past that initial hump of excitement. Then you start to ask yourself some big questions.”
"What kind of questions?"
"Things like: Is my work getting recognized? Is this job leading me toward my larger goals in life? Do I have balance?"
I mean, do you really need to ask? (at Dunkin Donuts)
Signs for the Homeless
an art project started by artists Kenji Nakayama and Christopher Hope in an effort to raise awareness about poverty and homelessness around the Boston area. The basic concept behind the ongoing project is that the two artists approach homeless people on the streets who are holding signs and propose an exchange. As their tag line states: “A sign in exchange for donations and a hand painted sign.” Essentially, Nakayama and Hope offer $10 and create hand painted signs for each person they come across.
I need to be better about remembering this too - but people who are homeless are still people. A lesson from FYSOP that I still take with me.

“It was easier to meet people back in Mali. People would speak to each other on the street. Here, people keep their distance. If you want to make a friend, you have to do it at the office or a club.”
“I originally wanted to work in advertising design, but that didn’t work out. Maybe it’s for the best though. If something requires advertising, I probably don’t want to be helping to sell it.”
If something requires advertising, I probably don’t want to be helping to sell it.
