As it Stands 04

1 // 2 // 3 // 4

This week has been a crazy blur full of wrapping up freelance projects, starting new ones, and just being busy overall. Whenever I have a lot to get done, I look to music (and coffee) to keep my energy levels up. That being said, I spent quite a bit of time listening to Disclosure’s album Settle this week. If you’re looking for some upbeat electronica to keep you hustling, look no further!

This week I came across a really great video/song called Nothing to Prove by Geek Girls and the Doubleclicks which explains what it’s like to be a female geek who is constantly put down for her gender. The video itself features photos of women holding signs explaining the troubles of being a geek girl. As someone who was once banned from a Half Life 2 server for being a “hacking 12-year old boy” (sorry, I’m not sorry for having a feminine voice and being awesome at the game), I could definitely relate. I love this video, the message, and the cameos of awesome people like Adam Savage and Amy Berg. Love this!

This week I could not stop laughing at these Bass Dog photos. I don’t know how people come up with these concepts, but I’m glad they do because they’re truly the lifeblood of the internet. If you need a pick-me-up, I would highly recommend visiting their tumblr and scrolling through all of those Bass Dogs. There are some real gems in there!

In addition to wrapping up some freelance work (more on that at a later date) and starting work with some fun new clients this weekend, I’m really looking forward to getting outside to enjoy this beautiful weather with my friends. We may take the boat out on Lake Michigan, and if we end up changing plans, I’m still looking forward to whatever adventures come our way!

Have a great weekend!
