HK

Spring break is coming up the  second week in April.

Singapore Airlines is advertising $599 roundtrip to Hong Kong.

i started out with a few older tracks and stuff i don't normally play, but tha...Read more

Trying to figure out what I should blog about here

So I'll start with school projects:

Most recently I finished up a magazine design class.  Our class of 11 students were to come up with an idea for a magazine, come up with the content and design it in less than 5 weeks.  Though I've used InDesign before, this was our first real assignment using CS3 and with style sheets.
