i am very confused by this. today i went to dunkin donuts because the other day i showed up early for work and my manager brought in donuts for everyone so she offered me one. so i took a blueberry one because it was brown and brown things are usually healthier and i don’t really like donuts anyway but i like blueberry muffins sometimes. i told my mom about it and she’s been craving a blueberry donut since yesterday and so have i. so we went to dunkin donuts and i was like “2 blueberry donuts, one corn muffin and a chai latte” and the guy was like “okay” and my order came up on the little screen and it was all there so then he started on my latte first and then he came back and he was like “2 blueberry donuts right?” and i was like “yeah, and a corn muffin” and he just nodded so he bagged the donuts first and then he put the bag in front of me and kind of held it there like looking at me and then the bag and i was like …?? r u ok ? and then he like slowly turned and got my muffin and i looked in the bag while he turned away and he had put 3 blueberry donuts and i was like is that why he was looking at me like that? is this a mistake? you can’t accidentally slip a whole donut that just doesn’t happen. i didn’t say anything though because i like blueberry donuts. and then he was like is that it and i was like yeah and he cashed me out and then i looked at the receipt and he had only charged me 2.23 when just the two donuts and the muffin alone cost over 3 dollars. i’m so confused??? did he give me an extra donut on purpose??? why did he charge me so little??? why was he looking at me like that?
idk but i like blueberry donuts
"Much that may one day be possible can already be prepared by the solitary individual, and built with his own hands which make fewer mistakes. Therefore love your solitude and bear the pain of it without self-pity. The distance you feel from those around you should trouble you no more than your distance from the farthest stars. be glad that you are growing, and realize that you cannot take anyone with you: be gentle with those who stay behind. Be confident and calm before them, and don’t torment them with your doubts or distress them with your ambitions which they wouldn’t be able to comprehend. Find in a true and simple way what you have in common with them, which does not need to change when you yourself change and change again. When you see them, love life in a from that is not your own, and be kind to all the people who are afraid of their aloneness"
Love the Solitude.
Worpswede, July 16, 1903
Letters to a young poet
Know your placement in life.
Dowling Duncan and redesigning the American Dollar:
Why the size?
We have kept the width the same as the existing dollars. However we have changed the size of the note so that the one dollar is shorter and the 100 dollar is the longest. When stacked on top of each other it is easy to see how much money you have. It also makes it easier for the visually impaired to distinguish between notes.
Why a vertical format?
When we researched how notes are used we realized people tend to handle and deal with money vertically rather than horizontally. You tend to hold a wallet or purse vertically when searching for notes. The majority of people hand over notes vertically when making purchases. All machines accept notes vertically. Therefore a vertical note makes more sense.
Why different colors?
It’s one of the strongest ways graphically to distinguish one note from another.
Why these designs?
We wanted a concept behind the imagery so that the image directly relates to the value of each note. We also wanted the notes to be educational, not only for those living in America but visitors as well. Each note uses a black and white image depicting a particular aspect of American history and culture. They are then overprinted with informational graphics or a pattern relating to that particular image.
$1 – The first African American president
$5 – The five biggest native American tribes
$10 – The bill of rights, the first 10 amendments to the US Constitution
$20 – 20th Century America
$50 – The 50 States of America
$100 – The first 100 days of President Franklin Roosevelt. During this time he led the congress to pass more important legislations than most presidents pass in their entire term. This helped fight the economic crises at the time of the great depression. Ever since, every new president has been judged on how well they have done during the first 100 days of their term.
but how will the blind determine a 50 from a 100 if they only have one of the two?
