Keri Smith :: It is what it is

This illustration by Keri Smith {of guerilla art kit, wreck this journal, non-planner datebook} brings back memories of "the good old days {see below}." (via swissmiss)

Once upon a time, I worked for several years as an in-house graphic designer {which our "studio" comprised of me and one student worker} at a university. It was an amazing learning experience, but if you've ever worked in a university setting, you know that more often than not, change can happen oh so very slowly. The only way to keep my sanity at times was to just
simply say "It is what it is." It became my signature phrase; a co-worker, who is now a good friend, used to often end her rants with saying "I know, I know what you're going to say, 'It is what it is'. . ."
