Love what you do, and do what you love

As I just finished up redesigning my personal website, I realized how much I love what I do and love learning more about it. I’m a designer, and no that doesn’t mean I just paint and draw all day. I … Continue reading

Where do I see myself in 5 years? 10 years? 15 years?

Back to where it all began… 

22. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 15 years?

In 5 years I see myself excelling in my dream career and hopefully getting the opportunity to travel sometimes with that job. Living in a different state, wherever the wind blows me, possibly (California or Arizona?). Also hopefully married to the man I love and a possible baby on the way

In 10 years I see myself with a family with 2 kids(or I open to more), but getting to travel with my family and still working. I would have paid off my student loans by then if everything is working as planned and just living the everyday life of a woman who is happy in love and happy  with my family and job

In 15 years shoot haha um have a great career in Web Design, who know,  I would love to be a Creative Director and hopefully by this time I have dabbled into a lot of different aspects of design and learned a lot to lead a team of my own. I would love to see how that plays out. I also hope by this time I have traveled to a lot of places that I have wanted to and made some great memories along the way



A typical day in my life

Back to where it all began… 

Happy 12/12/12!!!!

12. Describe a typical day in your current life

A typical day in my current life starts by waking up at 7:45am and getting ready for work. I’ll brush my teeth, figure out what I’m wearing for the day, while listening to videos or watching a quick episode of Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns or Boy Meets World. (really depends on my mood). I’ll check the weather as well, which will decide what I’m wearing. Then I’ll get dressed and go fix my hair. While I’m fixing my hair, i have the teapot on because I can’t go a morning without tea or coffee. Just habit! I’ll fix my lunch once I’m done with my hair and then head out. I’ll arrive at work around 9am or 9:15am depending on traffic.

We have our morning meeting at 9:30am and another meeting at 10am.  In between my time of getting to work and our first meeting, I will check my e-mail. I don’t like to check it right when I wake up because I don’t like having to look at all the junk mail as soon as I wake up, wouldn’t be a good way to start your day right? Then I’ll get into my work-mode and work until around 12:30pm. I eat my lunch, sometimes I’ll run and errand if I need to, but usually just eat and take a break. The next 4 hours is all full of work and doing what I love. Time flys by pretty fast if I’m trying to figure out a problem or making a webpage work. When 5pm hits, its time for me to head out of work and then I head to the gym. I’ll work out for a hour and then head home. Take a shower, fix dinner and watch tv.

And whenever I feel super tired is when I lay my head down to sleep. Night everyone!
