Learning new things
Okay, so this is probably the billionth time you have read about Wordle. Me too. But I finally fished the link out of my "places to waste time on" folder and gave it a try. Oh Wordle, how I love thee, let me count the ways! It was not a waste of time, in fact it was delightful. I even learned some dorky new things, like taking a screen shot, saving to a PDF and then making a PDF into a JPEG. Since I am always just faking it when I do something fancy on the computer, it brings me great joy to figure out things I never thought possible. (I give 99% credit to my Mac though.) So anyway, I made this little guy in a few minutes and I am quickly obsessed with it. I need new price tags and business cards for the shop and upcoming boutiques and suddenly I have them. Who me? Did I go to grad school for graphic design? Why, that's so sweet you asked. Yes, I went to the University of Wordle. I graduated Magna Cum Laude. I hear they are enrolling right now for the Fall Semester. Go over there and apply.
