ALEC shares thus cares

Don't know where to begin. This year has been an epic onslaught of fun. Having said that I still managed to learn some things along the way (both on and off the graphic design pitch) 
A little list of things that I love/respect now that I didn't 12 months ago - all thanks to Graphic Design Foundation 7890

Fontology (thanks Kurt) 
Photo collage
Mac computers 
Teachers can be down with graffiti too
Browne's Choc Honeycomb Thickshakes - often on special at Kingscliff Woolies for $2.20
A clean desktop
A clean desk
A clean pencil case
The value of art galleries
Crop marks - still hate them but respect them (sort of)
Woolies dropping the price of pizza rolls from $1.80 to $1.30 - love that value
Free print media
The amazing live trace tool
The amazing history tool
The amazing Adobe Suite
Partying can not only be fun but a great source of inspiration - an hilarious form of procrastination
Graphic design can be hard work
You can never do too many thumbnails
The virtues of carrying a little black book every time you leave the house
Blogs - music or otherwise
