New! Improved! (and Very Old) (via A blog about the art and the science of marketing research.)

New! Improved! (and Very Old) Interesting little article from the WSJ about the throwback trend in consumer packaged goods. While the trend itself isn't all that remarkable, I found the "Chip Flashback" sidebar amusing. Here's a simple recipe for creating a throwback package: Colors: The brown, orange and yellow palette is 'very time stamped' to the 1960s. Limitations in printing techniques also meant that only a few colors could be used. Letter Blocks: Often used by TV shows … Read More

Onward and upward…

Posted in Choices, Future, Happiness, People tagged , , at 5:45 pm by lemaclellan

Ladies and gentlemen I have a home for the next two years, it was stressful and there was drama but it is done. I have already found a little tea shop close by which I have a feeling I shall be inhabiting quite a bit.  Now just working on my list of stuff I need to acquire from Ikea, Bed Bath & Beyond, and of course sleep country haha. Have to set up phone and internet with Shaw and then I think I will be set. 

I am excited, nervous, and also scared. this new excursion of my life shall be interesting at least I will not be too far from my dear Calgary so that way if I get too home-sick I can always drive back for a bit. 

I will definitely miss my friends but we aren’t far apart and we all have transport in some way or another so I do not foresee this being a problem. 

I am however immensely looking forward to living in the same city as my Anya! we have not been this close, distance wise, since high school and we have a plan and weekly date and oh it is just going to be spectacular. Not to mention my complex has a pool, this means I can actually swim laps everyday…. I think this may be a fantastic 2 years.  Possession during the first week of august and I’m set! 

Ta Ta for now

lolcat literacy (via word and image)

lolcat literacy I have been pondering about writing something about lolcats for quite a while, but lots of people have been commenting on them, so I have held back. However, I am increasingly concerned about the widespread tendency of people to understand lolcats as devoid of any education and sophisticated use of language. Some people patronizingly link lolcat-language to babyspeak. In order to draw attention to the growing discrimination against lolcats based … Read More

Planning & Sunshine

Posted in Business, Choices, FERI, Future, GWT, Happiness, Human Nature, People, Relationships, Society tagged , , , , , , , , , at 9:33 pm by lemaclellan

This summer has brought with it many things, the potential for more opportunity being one of them. By opportunity I do not mean just in the business sense, though that is definitely something I am pursuing, rather more along the lines of lifestyle or relationship choices/pathways. I never quite know what to expect of individuals or even opportunities that cross my path let alone how to best approach some of them to acquire the best result.

Lately I have adopted more of a ” go with the flow ” approach  which has been working for the most part, I guess we will see how it plays out as it seems to be the best suited way to deal with happenings in my life.

One thing that happened earlier this spring/summer that I found amusing was a guy that i had seen several times, before I had to take a little medical break due to personal health issues, then when I talk to him again he tells me he got a girlfriend but that he really liked me just could never “figure me out”. I found this hard to believe as I am a very straightforward not to mention an open book when it comes to understanding or ‘reading’ me. Anyway his loss but it made me think if you really want to be with someone or would like to try a relationship with someone, shouldn’t you be willing to put in the time and effort? after all a perfect relationship will not just be handed to you on a silver platter you have to work at it and for it. But what would I know.

On the business side of things, things are picking up I have gotten some great leads for people who are looking for some new jewelry as well as a few wanting to know more about the business. I am excited to see where this will go as it will be wonderful once I start building my team, not to mention when I start making/saving money so I can buy more product like the FERI shields or some beautiful sterling silver or FERI Mosh items.

Edmonton plans are coming along nicely, this weekend I should be finding out where I will be residing and then can make moving/budget plans accordingly. This summer will be a summer of big changes that is for sure, and I have a feeling they will all be for the better. 

till next time

Hello Summer!

Posted in Expectations, Future, GWT, Happiness, Society tagged , , , , , , , at 10:41 pm by lemaclellan

Well it seems that summer seems to have finally deemed Calgary acceptable of it’s presence  and with that also comes the exciting release of the new sunglasses made by FERI. The FERI SHIELDS released to the website today and I must say they look stunning and I hopefully will have a pair in possession very soon. I browsed through the collection quickly and there is definitely a pair for everyone. So take a quick peek and I hope you find something you like if you do choose to tempt yourself and purchase one.

Also summer for me means the approaching of CFL season and thus returning to my marketing buddies at the wonderful McMahon Stadium for my Stampeders, and my Roughriders when they are in town. which I am greatly looking forward to as none of my teams for hockey are playing and I could care less at this point who wins, though I would prefer it to be the Boston Bruins over the Vancouver Canucks, but that is my opinion either way it is not the Flames so it is of little consequence to me. In other hockey news though the NHL is returning to Winnipeg! YAY! though they may not be called the Jets it will still be epic.

Also this coming friday is my convocation from my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, I am pretty excited and happy about this.  I am celebrating with friends friday and then doing so with the family on saturday.  During the middle of next month my mother and I will go up to Edmonton and find the place where I shall reside for my next two years of education for my post-degree Bachelor of Education specializing in elementary school.

This year will hopefully bring with its new beginning lots of wonderful things, of course with hard work but nonetheless lots of good things. I am excited. I also need to save lots so that I have a cushion in case I run into trouble in Edmonton.  New adventures await hopefully things turn out well and my life continues on the upward path that it has been.

Till Next time
