So I fell off the face of the internet world for a while. So long that I’ve decided my blog could use a new look. I’d like to redo my website too, but I know I’m lazy and so I’m not sure if that will happen anytime soon.
I’m also not going to finish my France blog. I had an amazing time, but…well retyping my journal and resizing all those photos turned out to be more of a chore than I imagined.
For now, here are some more recent pictures I’ve taken…
I will be making another graphic for the books I’ve read in December (because that was fun), but until then, here are some stats from my year end totals.

Clearly I have a book addiction (though I think you all knew that by now). I didn’t read as many books as I’d hoped this year. I was shooting for 110. As you can see, I have almost half of my collection to read, not counting the untold books I’ve yet to buy. ;D But still, I did pretty damn good!
Have a happy new year everyone!!!
Recently I designed an icon for an app that my friend was working on – Task Butler. Well Task Butler has launched and is available through Google Play for Andriod devices!
Task Butler is a personal assistant app that helps keep your life organized. Use Task Butler to keep track of all of your shopping, errands, bills, to-do lists, and more. You can group your tasks into categories to create sub-lists of similar tasks. You can assign due dates to tasks, and Task Butler will remind you when it’s time to complete them. For an especially time-sensitive task, use the procrastination alarm and Task Butler will make sure you finish it!
If you have an Andriod, be sure to download it and leave a review and rating!
Over the next few weeks I hope to make a nice webpage for it too. :]
I decided to try something new this month (and get off my graphic design ass). I turned my book stats into an infographic. ^_^ I love infographics and I’m pretty satisfied with my first attempt. (Click for a larger view)
I haven’t given up blogging, I swear. Mostly I’ve been focusing on my JET application (see essay editing process above). I’m also working on a website (logo, business card and resume) redesign, as well as a more interesting way to post my monthly books (like reviews and maybe some graphics to get me doing more design work). So…as usual, I have a million things I want to do….but will I do any of them?
Stay tuned until…next post!
