worst muse more like best muse
Time is a funny thing.
I can feel my emotions physically settling. They fall through water like those little flakes you give fish to eat. Each piece moving at different speeds depending on the size and density.
First to fall was the anger. For me anger never lingers. I let it pass and move towards understanding why I felt that way as quickly as possible, and I disapprove of its inability to have any positive effects on the things around it. It only causes rash and stupid decisions. I watch as the fish darts to catch it, but fails entirely.
Then you have the guilt. Unlike anger it lingers continuously until you swallow it whole. However I watch as the fish spits it out again and again in defeat towards being able to handle the task. I feel that guilt is something to battle with constantly because I must feel the hurt that it causes as well as defy its existence. Eventually I choose to accept the fact that it doesn’t matter any more.
There are small emotions. Burst of great proportion that go unnoticed. Those small specks that the fish ignores entirely because it understands that those things will bring no satisfaction. Sadness. Longing. Remembrance. Joy. These things are what I am made of daily, but they do not effect my core.
After all of the struggle there are moments when I give up. I feel empty. The fish floats down to the bottom of the bowl and decides that trying to catch all of these pieces is just impossible. I am merely one person. How can I do this by myself? Yet, when I am thrust out of this defeat I am more upset that people think it is better that I move on to the easier things than to continue struggling. How am I to learn? I sulk. I sleep. I feel.
Eventually the fish realizes there are no more flakes floating through the water. It stirs to the surface to find that there are some flakes left. Ones it can partake in easily, and does so happily.

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.
I get so annoyed with Americans who make fun of Canadian currency because it’s “Monopoly Money.” What? Our currency is multicoloured, see-through, holographic and almost indestructible! I guess that’s not as cool as being impossible to tell apart, wrinkly, bland and super easy to rip?
These designs are slick as hell, though.
I hate when a person says they’ve had a bad day and everyone, instead of trying to cheer them up, enters a competition of who’s had the shittest life
