I really cannot believe that i am almost done with school. Its eye-opening to be honest. I am not a kid anymore : ) if only my mother would realize that.
When i graduate im going straight home- i have had enough of being away from my family. I pray to God that he blesses me with a wonderful career in Chicago working for the Chicago Magazine.
I trust in him and what ever his will is then i will do it.

I saw this at an Masters graduate exhibition in London. It's a great piece of design that brings into readers' consciousness the ethical decision making process through mundane everyday events.
It's a clever way to introduce ethical thinking to the main stream, where ethical theories and thinking in general are seem as heavy and a deep subject to tackle. Through using everyday events that are as small as whether you'd post back to the sender a wrongly delivered piece of mail, ethical decision making process becomes relevant to the average Joe.
Also, through the understanding of the different models of ethical thinking the book becomes a vehicle of self-discovery.
It is only through raising the awareness of ethical decision making in individuals will we as a society start making the right decisions for the world we live in.
The designer of this book is called Mina Jee by the way. Find her at (www.minajee.co.uk)

The migration continues and hope is the destination.

BUY NOTHING DAY ORGANIZERS CONFRONT THE ECONOMIC MELTDOWN HEAD ON
Now in its 17th year, Buy Nothing Day is celebrated every November by environmentalists, social activists and concerned citizens in over 65 countries around the world. Over the years, Buy Nothing Day (followed by Buy Nothing Christmas) has exploded into a global movement, inspiring the world’s citizens to live more simply and buy a whole lot less.
Designed to coincide with Black Friday (which this year falls on Friday, November 28) in the United States, and the unofficial start of the international holiday shopping season (Saturday, November 29), the festival takes many shapes, from relaxed family outings, to free, non-commercial street parties, to politically charged public protests, credit-card cut-ups and pranks and shenanigans of all kinds. Anyone can take part provided they spend a day without spending.
Featured by such media giants as CNN, USA Today, MSNBC, Wired, the BBC, The Age and the CBC, Buy Nothing Day has gained momentum in recent years as the climate crisis has driven people to seek out greener alternatives to unrestrained consumption.
This year, Buy Nothing Day organizers are confronting the economic meltdown head-on – asking citizens, policy makers and pundits to examine our economic crisis.
"If you dig a little past the surface you'll see that this financial meltdown is not about liquidity, toxic derivatives or unregulated markets, it's really about culture," says the co-fou...
