Exciting myself to exhaustion

7 September 2011

I’ve said this a lot, but life just doesn’t slow down. At all.

  • With tonight’s class* over, I now only have one, ONE, week of school left. (read: OMGOMGOMG)
  • This week, myself plus three awesome ladies started a project I’m super excited about–all of this sparked by a very lively twitter discussion. (details soon)
  • Getting things ready to start freelancing. Which means building my site, getting professional-ish pictures taken, figuring out rates… (read: OMGOMGOMG)
  • Back to back Mucca weekends, and next weekend has two shows in one day.
  • This Friday night I have a design nerd event (aka Public School at Post Family), plus a going away party for a friend I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen…

It’s really those first three keeping me insanely, but a good insanely, busy. Part of that is because for my book design class I choose to do A LOT of hand drawn lettering… And for my type II class I have a poster I’m redoing with two different concepts as well as another poster to tweak, and an assignment that was supposed to be a one-page magazine spread that I’ve turned into a full-on tiny zine. And all the awesomeness of this new project that I cannot wait to share. (Starting something from the ground up is a lot of work, but super exciting.) And yeah. Freelancing. Scary and exciting. (Please contact me if you’d like to work with me on a project!)

* “Class” meaning we went to the Apple Store to listen to our instructor (and Post Family) speak about their design collaborative.

  • not gonna lie, i nearly jumped out of my chair with excitement that you’re freelancing again. i’m in desperate need of website help, and i’ve been dreading who to ask. i’ll definitely be hitting you up some time soon 😀

    boo and yay for one week left for class. i always find it emotionally hard when a class is ending. and can’t wait to find out about the new project. it really is a lot of excitement for you 🙂

      I’m hoping the freelance thing can take off, but I know I’ll still have to get a “normal” job too…

  • (and then i snuck back to tell you how fabulous i think you are, complete with silly award: http://schoonsense.blogspot.com/2011/09/feeling-special.html <3)
