My son gets sick, the other breaks his nose, my oldest son turns 18, my daughter wants me to teach an art class to 35 second graders,I get a cold, my other son gets sick and ends up in the hospital, my oldest son wants to move out, I get an ear infection and have to take antibiotics, my mom wants me to stop my son from moving out, I can`t stop my son from moving out, I gain 15 lbs., I am working with 3 wonderful clients one whom is a celebrity in another country, I get hit by a car.
Can someone please stop the insanity? Getting hit by a car sounds worst than what it is. I have a bruised hand and ego, as I now feel I need to learn how to walk across the street. The ego hurts more. Not to mention the anxiety and panic attacks that came after. I had to take control quick.
The funny thing about control, is that you never really have control. Life throws too many variables at you. To have control, you must let go of the control you think you have. And when you have a close call, you start to take stock of all the things you never did/finish/experienced.
I always wanted to read Dante Algheiri`s The Divine Comedy. Maybe not. Visit Paris. Design at my heart`s leisure, but have been too busy to do so. Learn how to make sushi. Have a Sushi party in a cute kimono. Lose my fear of heights. Go paragliding. Lose my fear of idiots. No. Wait. Lose my fear of looking like an idiot. Become a Wine Connoisseur. Visit Abu Dhabi. Get my degree.
If you remember, I failed miserably at even trying to get back to school. On an impulse I called a local school, exactly two weeks after being hit by a car. I have been accepted and have started classes this past week. I am enrolled in The Art Institute of Pittsburgh for the Associate degree program in Graphic Design.
I am very excited. That finally a piece of paper will say what I already know. I am a graphic designer. I have worked so hard to forge a career, that I forgot to tie the loose ends in my education.
I dislike my blog becoming about my life, when I intended for it to be about my metier. Somehow life always intertwines with business, but not all the time. As I master the work required of me in school, I promise to steal away to my blog and share what inspires me, my upcoming projects and the places I go.
I love Chinese design, Specially with a modern touch, and a French twist. If you are looking for stationery fitting this style look no further.
I am always up for a challenge. So if you are inspired by it too I would love to see your mood board!
I was born in the year of the dragon.
