I’m not a fan of explaining myself, but maybe this one deserves it. Derived from Latin, “modus vivendi” essentially means “agree to disagree.” And that’s that.
But seriously though, the real story isn’t that much more fascinating. I was watching “Julie & Julia” and got a brilliant idea to start a blog in that fashion. My genius claim to internet fame would be showing everyone the foibles of making a quilt. My mom bought me some expensive fabric, Moda Fabrics, on a spring break trip to Berlin, OH (do I know how to have a rockin’ good time or what?!), and thus, my blog was born on Blogger. I think I had one post. Maybe two. The quilt went over just as well, ie: like a lead balloon. To be fair, it’s all sewed together, I just have to get around to the actual quilting of it. See, I can stick with projects, for years if necessary!
At some point in time, I decided that it would be better to start fresh and to use WordPress to capture my senior year of college. And here I still am, working to show that I am actually a positive, upbeat person, despite the few posts that are more of a therapeutic vent than an indication of what kind of employee I am (to clarify: I am not an ungrateful, pessimistic, moody person).
So there it is folks, in case you’ve ever wondered, “Why Moda Vivendi?”
