I’m not going to lie, I’m really excited that it’s Friday. This week has seemed very busy, but also very long, and I’m looking forward to the weekend to have some time to relax a bit. It’s also Father’s Day – it’ll be a different kind of celebration this year, since we won’t be going out anywhere, but it’ll be a celebration regardless.
This week’s favorites ahead!
This actually happened a few weeks ago, but it didn’t really seem like the time to be sharing celebratory news. I was inducted into my high school’s Highlander Hall of Fame as a distinguished alumni, which is an honor that I feel incredibly undeserving of. Since we couldn’t gather in person, you can watch the virtual ceremony (and check out some pictures of me from high school!)
This is a really interesting look at how you say Black Lives Matter using ASL, and how language can evolve differently in different groups of people. You might think that ASL is a direct translation from spoken English, that follows the same patterns and syntax, but it’s actually pretty different.
I think part of why this week felt so long is that I have so many different projects going on all at the same time. I was trying to make digital lists, but I’m really missing the pen-on-paper experience. I’m hoping this pad makes me feel a little more organized!
My incredible artist friend Katie Koenig wanted people to remember the role that art plays in our lives now, even when we’re separated physically. So she organized a virtual exhibition with over 50 artists, all with new small works (12×12 inches or less). It goes live TODAY and everyone should check it out!
