I want this room

January 30, 2012 Leave a comment

I found this while looking at Dornob.com, and simply have to say I want this room.  I can’t be sure the clock, which is what I was looking at, is actually in the room instead of being placed there with some photo editing; regardless I like this modern approach to what appears to be an audiophiles heaven.

Writing a resume for some jobs may be in the past according to the article “No More Résumés, Say Some Firms,” at Wall Street Journal and written by Rachel Silverman.  The article details different approaches some companies are taking to find the right employee for the job and that fits in their office culture.  At times going as far to have applicants submit brief videos as part of their job application, citing that it gives them a better chance to see the real applicant.  While I haven’t been through a non-cover letter/resume application yet, I think I would like the challenge and appreciate the ability to showcase my talents in different ways.

Lists and More Lists

Lists and More Lists

I enjoy reading the lists Inc.com, or any other business, self-help, or magazine website publishes because more often than not they summarize what my family, friends, business professors, or common sense have been telling me for years.  They are like verification of the little tidbits you pick up along the road of life – anyways, I liked this list because lately I have mini-crises of motivation around the house.  It also puts some thoughts on work, and how to go about it, it better words than I could possibly.

Modern Light Shining Through

January 3, 2012 Leave a comment

I know that I haven’t made a post in months, but not to fret I haven’t given up on the blog – I was just distracted with life and work upon coming back to the States.  To follow the list of recently created New Year’s resolutions I need to start blogging and posting a great deal more on here.  So like starting fresh I give you some modern home design!

This picture above stood out to me, like many interior shots of modern homes do, because of the great deal of light coming in through all of the windows.  It is one of the strongest attachments I have to modern architecture, the ability to easily be asymmetrical but yet balanced with windows and light.  In classically styled homes, or even the salt boxes and cookie cutter homes, the design too often necessitates a patterned approach to windows.

This house above was designed by David Jameson Architect Inc.  and can be read more about at HomeDesignFind.
