Winter is almost over which means spring is on its way with lots of positive energies. Even though I haven’t posted as much as I would have liked, I’ve kept busy with bits of new projects and ideas. My goal this year is to be able to write a blog post at least once a week and we’re only at the end of February so the procrastinator in me will say “There’s still time”. But in all seriousness, I am working towards achieving that goal among others.
It’s a bit hard to keep up with a day job, a long distance relationship, planning my first vacation on my own and staying active with posting on the blog, on my Facebook page and on Twitter. Not to mention -still- having to finish those web design and development courses I’ve been beating myself around to do and planning for moving away from home, to a different country, by the end of the summer. I don’t think I’ve ever been on so many deadlines in my life but it keeps me busy, it keeps my anxiety at bay and my mind active in a good and much more productive way than before.
Small disclaimer: the following article is based on my personal experience. Some things may or may not apply to everyone. I am not a graphic design expert, some or all of the things stated below may be wrong in some people’s opinion but the purpose is solely for knowledge, advice and experience sharing.
When I got my job as graphic designer, I knew almost nothing of the real life experience of what it means to have a job. I had just finished university studies and, to my shame, I admit I hadn’t had any other job until then. Now, six months of training and almost two years of work later, I know a whole lot more about graphic design and life in general so I decided to put it all in words and possibly help someone who wants to follow the same path.
