New Lessons Every Day

Every day I learn a lot, and every day I get better. For most of the day today, I worked on a single graphic (that hopefully runs in the paper). I gave it to the person in charged, and oh man, there was a lot to change. Fonts, labels, fill colors, bar widths, spacing, layer orientation, size… on and on and on. I think it might have been faster for him to make the graphic himself than it was for him to fix mine.

Sigh. Gotta practice.

The graphic above is the number of daily steps I’ve taken since I started wearing a pedometer. Can you tell when I moved to the city and was forced to walk to the subway and work?
