Without frequent updates, you lose track of what’s going on in people’s lives. In all honesty, my life has been crazy lately and I haven’t had much extra time to update everyone on what’s going on… so here’s my update:
The last semester of my college career is quickly wrapping up and my final projects are in motion. I can say that I’m extremely proud of all of them. I haven’t posted them online yet, but that time will come soon. I’m simply trying to catch up on everything at the moment. My website should be launched within the next week. There are three projects left in my last semester. I will be applying for my dream jobs in the next month. Etc etc.
For my internship I’ve done a lot of work during my internship that isn’t 100% design, but rather social networking, blogging, web, etc. However, as far as the designs go I’ve mostly been working on rebranding a few companies. In the future, you’ll be seeing my rebrands for Sub Station II (a sandwich shop which now has over 40 locations), Safe Life Senior (a personal emergency response services company which was previously known as Pilot Club), and The Protocol School of Washington (a global leader in business etiquette and international protocol training). I am waiting for final decisions on which logos they have chosen before I post them anywhere.
Graduation is just over a month away. I will be applying for jobs in the upstate. I have one company that I’m shooting for, but I will be keeping my options open until something comes along.
A word of advice to all those who have been stressing lately: remove yourself from social networking. Remove Facebook from your phone. Remove Twitter. Remove Tumblr. Just stop. Breathe. Enjoy the fresh air. Enjoy the people around you. Stop looking at the phone in your hand. It’s distracting and takes away from everything around you. That’s what I’ve done recently. I plan to continue it also.
There are ups and downs in everyone’s lives. Things happen which make you question if what you’re doing is right. Things happen which makes you wonder whether or not you should pick a different path. We all know that life changes. Mine has changed drastically just in the last month. Don’t get me wrong… that’s not a complaint. Change can be good. It all depends on your outlook.
Life moves on and I’m ready for the ride to continue.
