Strong Souls Should Equal Strong Bodies

EdwinHimself --Check it out. It's 10 Lessons for young designers.

By the way, I have to mention... I have lost a total of 8 pounds within a month! Everyday I wake up feeling a little more ambitious, stronger mentally and physically. I am happy-go-lucky! Some days I wake up excited, just wanting to know what life has in store for me. Good things will happen because I will embark on my plans. I'd get high on this anytime!

We Are Our Own Worst Enemies


I hate myself for not knowing how to balance school!!! But the overindulgence feels sooooooo good and life is too short! :'( But the reality is, I gotta do it if I want to get there.

Slap me silly. Although, I must say... I don't regret any of it. ;) I had such a good weekend! Though I over indulged a bit too much on money, food, and yes, alcohol... I would never trade those last few experience with friends and loved ones everrr! It's what makes my life go around. I must say I've really bust my ass today and I need to do that more often if I want to reward myself at the end of this quarter (Spring Break = ATL + Sora!!!)

See... it's not about cutting out my social life. It's more about incorporating practical-ness into my schedules: I.E. Me waking up on time and getting to work on time (or getting Priscilla to work on time), focusing on homework routines, gym routines, and being careful not to excessively indulge...

ehhhhh bahhh humbug!

Especially when I get them for freeeeee

This year, I vow to dedicate myself to growing more as a Graphic Designer. Its been a struggle in my past to try to incorporate "graphic design" lifestyle. This year, it'll be different. I will vow my time to more of myself, to more of the creative me... and for once... follow through with my creative concepts.

This year, it's not just about spiritual findings; it's going to be about finding my creative spirits.

Fade Into You

I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that's true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life
You go in shadows
You'll come apart and you'll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what's not there.

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

Some day you'll know

Be who you want to be and say what you want to say. We learn best when we make mistakes.

And to that, some day you will know what it meant. Life's happening doesn't so much matter in the now, but matters the most later. So be who you want to be and say what you want to say. We learn best when we make mistakes.

Where to now?

So... A LOT has happened in the past couple of months that I haven't been here. I got the internship at Blanks/USA. Granted, it taught me a few good things about the working world which is definitely mission accomplished. I can't say I love it or hate it either. I've met fun people here. I have a good month before I leave here.

I'm glad a took the step up in life and made a change but after this internship, I have a bag of worries to carry: Do I go back to school? Or find a new job? How much time have I got 'til I have to pay off my school loans? How will I even pay it off with no job? Etc.

I must say I've attuned myself to the "Go to work-come home-eat-sleep" deal. And I did finally get to just enjoy some ME time instead of having to do projects for school, fill out paper work here and there, and jumping here and there with other pain-in-the-ass priorities etc.

And lately I've been trying to get on with MY projects: more painting, framing my bedroom walls with my favorite photographs, buying shelves and re-staining/painting thm etc. --more so the interior design stuff. I've also learned a great deal about freelancing; NEVER SELL YOURSELF FOR LESS. Some people just have no idea how hard Graphic Designers work on a project etc. Most of the time they don't mention a pension and leaves you at an awkward state about the project and/or throw a project out there to you with out considering what you already have on your plate. Sorry, if we're just acquaintances and you can't respect that then forget it and don't waste my time because TIME to ME is PRECIOUS.

Anyway, our 4 year anniversary is coming up on the 4th of this month. (Should I consider that our GOLDEN anniversary yet? lol) I hope to do something special because the previous years we hardly celebrated them. Shouldn't it be extra special this time around? I'm thinking I should do the planning because... MEN... what do they know about romance?

Is it just me?

If its one thing I do know in this life, loving you was the best thing I could do.
