This is the product of some brainstorming via the blog and twitter regarding the lessons we learn during our journey through life. My brother graduates from high school in June, and I wanted to impart a little wisdom into his brain.

Mundania Horvath over at Steeltown Anthem is curating a show at  <C> Space Collective on June 4th called Steeltown Stock, and I’ve got a few pieces in the show. I hope you’ll check it out — this sneak peak looks like it is going to be awesome!

I Bet We’ve All Been There

Oh, the workplace.

I think we’ve all been roped into a project that didn’t fit our job description, or handed something from capable but lazy hands, or inherited something that was fundamentally broken before you came along.

Of course, you can’t really say it.

Or, for when your feeling a little a little feisty:

Life Lessons - Help!

Yeah? Then help me out.

The Brother graduates from high school next spring, and I’d like to impart some knowledge on the youngest babe of the Arnold clan. Also, I’m itching to do another typography project.

My hope is to create a poster full of life lessons that I’ve learned since high school. A rough list follows:

  • Be thankful every day.
  • Credit card companies are evil.
  • If you have a question, always ask.
  • A bad situation will probably be really funny tomorrow. Sometimes it might take a week.
  • The ingredients for any healthy relationship are trust, communication and respect.
  • The Steelers are the best football team. EVER.
  • Mistakes are important and okay. Learn from them.
  • First impressions are important, but rarely accurate. Give it another round.
  • Bad things do happen to good people.
  • You are who you surround yourself with.
  • Things could almost always be worse.
  • Attitude is everything.
  • Every situation offers a lesson. Try to find it, good or bad.
  • Be tenacious.
  • You can agree to disagree.
  • Learn to let it go.
  • Your first instinct is probably the right one.
  • Learn from the past. Live in the present. Plan for the future.
  • Do what you love.

Nothing can replace life experience, of course, but a cheat sheet can’t hurt.

Is there anything you wish you’d known at 18? Any obstacles you would have liked to have been warned about? Deep, silly — let’s hear it!
