I've been working STRENGTHTHROUGHUNITY.NET since i first heard about the earthquake in Haiti on January 12, 2010. This project is my way of helping out Haiti and was created to bring awareness to the recent situation in Haiti through design. It is my belief that design can change or influence the way a person thinks or acts. So with that belief in mind I set out to aid those in need of assistance in Haiti the best way we can through design. I‘d personally like to thank everyone who views the site for taking time out of their day to possibly help those in need. THANK YOU!
So today for lunch i hit up Buena Vista Deli which just opened last week. This deli comes from the awesome owners of Buena Vista cafe/Bistro. The deli is right next to the Cafe and by the old Amendment XXI lounge. I got the turkey sandwich which was pretty good but what i got for dessert was pure bliss. Their blue berry tarts are out of this world. I'd high recommend this place to any food lover as well as the cafe next store which is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. (I recommend the curry chicken)

OMG Hitler knows exactly how i feel about the iPad. But unlike him i still have faith in you Apple. I know your doing it this way to make money. I know you have the technology i want, just sitting.... You probably have technology ready that i can't even imagine.

So today apple announced it's new product the iPad . I've been waiting for Apple to release a tablet since i first saw 3rd party companies create them and use Apple operating systems on them years ago. The 3rd party ones I've seen can run the adobe suites and have Wacom capabilities.So with that being said I'm a little sad that the iPad isn't a computer that can run creative programs or any programs in fact. It's just an over sized iPod Touch when you step back and look at it. I still think it's cool but it's just not what i was hoping it was gonna be. Hopefully Jobs will get it right next time around.

There's a project that I've been wanting to work on for a long time now, but i haven't the opportunity to do so until i took this trip to Chicago over the holidays. Hopefully I'll be finishing this project in the coming days and post it online. Until then here are some photos from my trip. The trip consisted of a lot of eating and hanging out with friends. Some of the spots i hit up were the Golden Apple Diner which is one of the dopest diners in Chicago. If your ever in Chinatown I recommend House of Fortune. I think it was the best Chinese food I ever had. Other places you should hit up are RSVP Gallery in Bucktown and LDRS downtown. All in all it was an awesome trip. Thanks a lot Talia for having me and Alex.
