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?
