Y’ulz Seth Rotherham from 2OceansVibe reads my blog y’als! He said so on page 78 of December Elle Mag! (not on shelves just yet…be patient.) The one with Lily Allen looking like a naughty l’il slut on the cover.

I could die y’als! Should I die? Should I end it all RIGHT NOW? Has my blogging career peaked? Should I quit now, ‘while i am ahead’? Wow y’ulz. Never imagined this day would come. Srsly. Need to lie down. Need to sit up straighter. Need to … dunno y’ulz. Just need to. Click Here to read a scan of the article. See the full article here. But wait – there’s more. He does it again here.
Srsly y’ulz. Should I die? Can’t handle the expectation. The pressure. Might have to tweet it 20 thousand billion times and post it on my fbook status and RT my fbook status on my blog on twitter ‘just to deal’.
Y’ulz this whole new national logo has totally inspired me. Feel like now that ‘mediocrity is celebrated’ I can rly take my place in the world. Makes me think back to those days at Ad School when Brian Searle-Tripp told me my design work ‘looked like a plumber did it’ and see it in a whole new way. I was being praised y’all! Shouldn’t have quit design & become a writer instead. Should have ‘embraced my mediocrity’!
Wish someone told me that ‘the world hates competence’ sooner. Wish someone reminded me of ‘what happened 2 piggy’. Could have had a lot more fun ‘doing drugs at varsity’ and ‘binge-eating junk food’ instead of ‘working rly hard at being a good writer & not fat’ so I could ‘come out on top’. Wish someone had told me ‘everyone hates an achiever!’ sooner. Feel like I have born the burden of ‘taking pride in wot i do & who I am’ 4 too long now.

You know how ‘life is filled with contradictions & mysteries’? Think this is one of them y’ulz. Repeat after me:
“if you want to be the best, don’t be the best, and you will be the best” – Alex van Tonderstein
Feel like I’ve discovered ‘the meaning of life’.
An inspiration 2 designers / people everywhere.
