I have found, while trying to manage, that it does not take much to completely derail my day. And my plan. Take for example, this morning. It was 2 a.m., to be exact. The loudest crash of thunder I've ever heard rocked my city (quite literally) and seemingly woke everyone up, myself included. It was … Continue reading Disruptions.
Time To Share Some Work.
I got the chance to interview a really cool local designer and shop owner this week for an article that came out today. We talked design trends for 2018, easy ways to revamp a room, where to save and splurge, and easy ways to incorporate Ultra Violet, the Pantone color of the year. You can … Continue reading Time To Share Some Work.
Work Work Work Work Work Work Work.
Do you ever get the feeling like all the work happens at the same time? That happened to me today. It's like all the things are due, on two very short weeks. I'm mildly terrified about getting it all done, but I'm always very well aware that sometimes you need some free time to decompress … Continue reading Work Work Work Work Work Work Work.
I've decided that it's a good thing for my brand and my wallet if I freelance. I had a few opportunities come up before I was even looking and I decided to take them on. And while getting to work with these clients makes me happy creatively, I'm mortified that I'm going to commit to … Continue reading Side Hustles.
No one really likes to do it. Most of the time we say we're over things, but out of no where you'll feel a tinge of regret and feelings come flooding back. Currently I'm trying to move on--specifically from my time as a magazine editor. Which tends to be difficult when you still have two … Continue reading Moving On.
The ups and downs of workload.
During weeks or days that I'm incredibly busy, I always long for a job that's much more consistent. An actual 9 to 5. And it takes roughly halfway through a slow day before I realize the notion of me in a 9 to 5 is completely absurd and that I'd live that lifestyle for maybe … Continue reading The ups and downs of workload.
It’ll Get Done…
It'll get done. Said at least once each production week. The thing is, the statement is always true. Whatever isn't done at that point always manages to get done by deadline. That's just what we do. Missing deadlines isn't part of the job. I'm not sure if this is the case for other professions, as … Continue reading It’ll Get Done…
Diving Back In
It's been a while. I could list out a ton of reasons why I haven't been posting, but honestly it's because this hasn't been a priority. With madness in my office—from a 'reinvention' that landed me with a second job title that should really go to another full-time employee, to planning a beer release party … Continue reading Diving Back In
A week of drinks…and catching up
First things first, I received my copy of the September issue of LNM; the issue that had me pulling my hair out two weeks ago. And I'm already freaking out about October. I swear the cycle never stops. But nevertheless, I'm incredibly proud of this issue and so in love with how the cover … Continue reading A week of drinks…and catching up
So I'm pretty proud of my Friday. Though I did not get my nap and am therefore still kind of sleep deprived, I did, however, get to have some tasty treats at a great somewhat-new ramen restaurant called Futo Buta. I attended the media soft opening for this restaurant a few months back, but … Continue reading Weekend Wind-down
