The Excitement of Paper

last Thursday was the annual Xpedx show. I know you’re jealous. mixing with the majority of the area’s professionals in print and production over food, drinks, and the most delicious miniature deserts. and I can’t forget to mention that the theme this year was bright pink. but seriously, the tiny chocolate mousse was amazing. the server walked near the table I was standing at, catching up with classmates from college, and I saw the array of itsy-bitsy treats. I was unable to resist for long. I caught the next server on her way out of one of the B.O.B.’s many kitchens as I headed over to another table of associates. wish I’d been able to try them all.

I know I don’t live in as large of a city as I’d like to, but we are the second largest city in the state. so, it’s still surprising to me how many people I network with somehow know one another through some other avenue. how does my old Branding and Identity Promotion professor know the Senior Sales Executive from my office? I guess when you’re talking something as specific in the print production and design realm as paper, the world of professionals would be small.

it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. I ran into several friends I hadn’t seen since my BFA graduation in May, including Sarah, Sara, Shannon, and fellow WordPress blogger, Jen. what else was great, was having a little one-on-one time with colleagues from work.
