What if our spaces inform who we are?

There was a snow day yesterday which precluded me from being able to interview my anyone this week. I am rescheduling the interviews with graphic design for next week on Tuesday. In the meantime I am doing more research on costs of books and where I could potentially print them. Right now it looks as though I will be doing small publishing through Blurb, where I had a book printed for my Advanced Typography class, the second semester of my junior year. I was quite pleased with the quality of their printing. I believe this is when I fell head over heels in love with the idea of making a book for my thesis.
    I love to cook, and at the end of my sophomore year I began compiling the many recipes I have come up with through the years. At age 16, I made the major life-choice to become vegetarian—and with little support from my family at the time, I had to begin to prepare either part of, or all of my own meals. At that age, what little I knew about cooking came from working at a local sandwich/pizza shop, and searching the frozen food section for vegetarian protein patties which I could use to supplement the “meat” portions of my meals. It wasn't until I was in my early to mid 20s that I began to teach myself how to actually cook, Learning from cooking with friends and watching a lot of Gordon Ramsay or the Food Network. When my wife and I went vegan (meaning that we neither wear or ingest the flesh, ovum, or breastmilk of any animal) in 2010, we spent even more time making our own home-cooked meals from recipes we had either converted from old meat-based, or vegetarian (using eggs and dairy) recipes. Between 2010 and now, my wife and I have created for modified dozens of recipes, and I figured one of the more interesting tasks I could use my thesis for was to make my own cookbook.
    The reason I'm not doing a cookbook is because of what I want to find a job doing once I graduate. I am far more interested in editorial design and exhibition design as a career path, rather than working solely as a book designer. As I was selected to be a part of MECA’s 2017 BFA Thesis Curatorial Team, I figured it would make more sense for me to take what I am learning from the curatorial team, and apply it to my thesis work, which is where I came up with the idea for making an exhibition catalog.
    That's all for now. I hope to have more interesting information next week.
