My videos from the Blogalicious Party at BlogHer ’10 are finally up and ready to view. Let me just say that Blogalicious knows how to throw a party like no other. They hired break dancers and a dj who came equipped more than even the other parties. Enjoy!

Summer To Do List: Get it All Done by Fall…

I don’t know about you all but I have a lot going on this summer. So much so, that I started what I call my Summer Happy Fun Time To Do List™ to just get it all out of my head and down on (digital) paper. After this, I’m going to plot all this out on a real live calendar so I can get a spatial feel for the season. There’s nothing like using a real calendar to see you have 4 deadlines or events all one day. Also, because I’m concurrently in school for my MFA while running a business, it kind of feels like I’m “on summer vacation” when that’s entirely not true. At all. Doing this will help me balance out a design practice mixed with an academic practice. On to the show, here’s what is swimming around my head for the summer…

Ongoing Throughout Summer:

– land 4 new projects
– make something every day
– finish Sketching User Experiences by Bill Buxton
– finish 2 other interaction design books
– conquer Drupal
– upload all my photos to Flickr from last 3 years
– do user research for thesis
– purge 20% more of my books & papers, aka de-clutter
MFA Design & Technology summer thesis assignment

May:

– enjoy my vacation to Brussels, Belgium (with a day trip to Paris and a couple of days in Malmo, Sweden!)
– web site launch
– thesis user research
– read Making Ideas Happen by Scott Belsky (CEO & Founder of Behance.com)

June:

– finish Brooklyn Urban Homesteaders Unite project & user test (click for a click through demo)
– start practicing yoga
– start the Design Procedures class at School of Visual Arts Continuing Ed
Creative Freelancer Conference in Denver, 6/4 – 6/7 (I’m hosting a breakfast round table!)
#TechMunch NYC Food bloggers workshop, 6/10
– quarterly taxes, 6/15
Design for Drupal in Boston, 6/19 – 6/20

July:

– finish applying for grants and scholarships for thesis year
– design an iPhone/iPad app (interface only)
– learn how to swim at the Y
– launch Brooklyn Urban Homesteaders Unite

August:

BlogHer ’10 Conference in NYC – 8/6 – 8/7
– Fall promo project for papercut
– streamline all my blogs
– Final launch of web site
– squeeze out one last weekend away before school starts again
– drink to my awesomeness and not be disappointed if I don’t finish all of it.

So, dear readers, what’s on your Summer Happy Fun Time To Do List™? Do you need help with any of it? If so, feel free to ping me and let’s figure out how we can work together.
