@WalterStephanie Woohoo! 🚂 @WalterStephanie WTF, that’s messed up. 😢 @mcgregok That's definitely a contender - I love that you can customize some of them. @dbanksDesign @ZooeyDeschanel https://t.co/UzR2pjAVDh @dbanksDesign Basically I want to have something that screams, "I'm the @ZooeyDeschanel of tech". @dbanksDesign I have one and love it, but it's slightly too bulky for where I keep it at work. Also, I'm looking… https://t.co/yHG80QRbTs @elyktrix I love my Peak Design everyday backpack for travel, but it’s a bit much for daily use. @elyktrix To start... ✅ Easy access to my laptop (no weird clasps, no rollup) ✅ Multiple exterior compartments for… https://t.co/GGnlQsGTW4I’ve spent the past month looking for a new backpack and still haven’t found anything.

I’ve found something else I’m terrible at: Golfing with Friends. In other news, @Dierkens03 and @tylerkrupicka are no longer my friends.

“Let it be clear, Kelly will not be doing everything for this project.” Narrator: But Kelly would be doing everything for the project. @Spentacular @Dierkens03 It’s because he’s a designer.Okay, enough procrastinating. Time to design something beautiful that @Dierkens03 won't hate.Had a kickoff meeting today where I basically said, “this is the way” repeatedly til I heard no further objections.
