Something I read
I'm reading Small Wonder by Barbara Kingsolver, and I'm really into it. I found an excerpt from American Earth: Environmental Writing Since Thoreau. "What we lose in our great human exodus from the land is a rooted sense, as deep and intangible as religious faith, of why we need to hold on to the wild and beautiful places that once surrounded us."
Something I made
Technically I made this yesterday, but I gave it a library/grocery run test. I'm working on a tote bag that doubles as a backpack for lighter loads. I'm hoping to have them up for sell by the end of the week. I'll try and take pictures or video clips to show the process from start to finish. It's a simple design but it's still nice to see how it all comes together.
Something I learned
I'm pining for a job at Otherlab, and after watching a few of their videos I heard "graph theory" getting tossed around. It also looks like their logo is based on it, so I thought I'd try and learn a bit about it. The books I got from the library were too dry, but there were a couple of videos that had bits and pieces that we're worth watching.

Something I'm excited about
A few weeks back I got an email from Klean Kanteen asking me to review their products that I owned. "Doesn't matter if the review is good or bad," they said. So I bashed their lids because they're not that great, especially the cafe lid. Turns out they've been working on a better design and they're sending me a freebie. Try and overlook the fact that I said "seeded" instead of "seated."
