Organization makes me happy.

My dad is going to love this highly organized garage from the long lost pages of Domino. Lessons learned here:

1. Line your garage with cabinetry 
of some sort and hide paint cans, etc. within.

2. Hang pegboard on the walls 
to create storage for cleaning supplies, garden equipment, and power tools.

3. Add shelves 
on top of pegboard to store coolers and toolboxes.

4. Keep sporting equipment from taking over 
floor space by hanging boards and rackets on the wall 
and suspending bicycles from the ceiling.

Who knows? You might even be able to fit your car in there one of these days.

New York, New York

Today I'm in New York City visiting the offices of Cline Davis & Mann and attending a job fair I helped plan at MTV. (I have a campus job in Bucknell's Alumni Relations office.) Words cannot explain how much I love this city. It makes me feel alive, ambitious, and generally high on life. Do you know the feeling?

This week's lesson: when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. 

After my last phone took a little spin through the washing machine bit the dust this weekend, I am happily upgrading to the iPhone 4. (Thank you, Mom and Dad!) My first big girl phone — and no. 28 on my 101 in 1001 list!

Now I need your help. Any advice from fellow iPhone users? Favorite apps? I must know!
