As it turned out…upon printing out this HBS certificate at the printers (her second copy is a digital one…the first was stamped and she ended up tearing it up five years ago, as she decided to become an sustainable artist…sorry Harvard…it was just paper…), this Helenbobelen got vastly different service today as the printer guys found out the “college student kickscooter artist/ukulele girl” went to HBS…the Asian-American man didn’t do his usual smirk as she went to go pay for the copies, she went on to hold up her two Crayola* colored pencils and asked for a pencil sharpener!…he duly apologized when he looked in the drawer and couldn’t find one.
Why didn’t my printing out of my National Academy of Sports Medicine certificate get the same reaction?
I do think any certificate is duly useful if you can use it to share “the winnings” with others…
Thank you to my classy Helenbobelen.com clients and everyone here in Austin who’ve helped me to get to this point in Life’s no-finish-line race…

This semester, my young’un art students no longer wait for a recycle bin at their school (we waited and waited and waited…no recycle bin…)…they now just simply re-use paper from the “scrap bin”. Consistently, this Helenbobelen has been modeling various art projects using “recycled” paper and often times in a jokey/ironic way, depending on the paper’s written content…(yes, I’m giving this Helenbobelen a proverbial pat on the back…)
But in general, getting this to Earth-friendly art to happen is a shared joyeous victory and now these kiddos can see how beautiful the random colored scraps can look.
This morning, I came across Kirsten Dirksen’s video of Thomas Dambo who, along with Elon Musk, show that it’s indeed cool for men to recycle and care about our children’s future Earth.
It takes energy to recycle. It takes energy to care…and truly create.
