Well, I survived the first week of school.
I think my classes are going to be pretty rad, and I have a feeling that this quarter will be awesome overall. One of the big projects I’m going to be designing for my Information Design class is about the cultural history of the sewing machine! I will be sure to share any cool tidbits I discover along the way.
You know what else happened this week? I was reminded that I am passionate about sidewalk etiquette*.
Really, sidewalk etiquette is super simple at its core. It’s about being respectful to fellow human beings.
1. Walking on the sidewalk is like driving a car. Stay on the right side, and allow oncoming traffic to pass on the left.
2. Groups of people—yes, even a duo is considered a group in this instance—need to line up single file (on the right side, of course) if walking on a crowded sidewalk, or when someone is coming toward the group in the opposite direction.
We have the power to make the world a better place! If everyone practices sidewalk etiquette and teaches their children these rules when they are young, these good habits will become so natural to all of us, it will become just a part of our daily lives. And in turn, future pedestrians everywhere will never have to the feel the frustration of a rude sidewalk hogger**!
Now that’s a thought that puts smiles on the faces of kittens!
