Usually when I write about things on here I relate to the experiences I’ve had, but for the most part I try to keep my private life private. Well today is a little different, simply because so many things have changed in my life in the last month and a half. In May I moved into a new apartment with my best friend and it’s been great. My best friend and I get along perfectly, we’re quite the odd couple, and just being in here makes me really happy.
But then two other major changes happened, and it’s sort of thrown my game off a bit. First, I ended a long distance relationship that lasted three years. That was a major major change for me, one that I’m still getting used to. Then last Friday I was laid off from my job of 3 years. When it rains, it pours, right? This wasn’t a huge shock, my boss is trying to keep make things work for herself as well, and I was too pretty a penny to keep around.
Which now means I’m sitting at home, eating oatmeal at 10 am. This is a totally foreign situation to me, I’ve had a steady job since I was 17 years old. But I’m a glass half-full kind of guy, I’m eternally optimistic and no matter how crazy things get, you can always make it better. So in an effort to really utilize and capture all this change, I’m going to be accepting freelance design and retouching jobs if anyone has any cool projects they need help with. I’m hoping this doesn’t come off sounding desperate, but I figure that I’ve made a lot of really cool friends and I know a lot of really creative people read this blog, so what the hell?
If you’d like to see any examples of my work, retouching or design, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
