It’s crazy. I barely have time to write this entry. I have a lot of work but wanted to plug this real quick in order to gather my thoughts in the past couple of weeks.
It’s been good being back and still on the hustle as usual. More than ever.
I’m planning on running again tomorrow and get back to the swing of things. Heck if everything is good tonight, I just might start up right now! haha But tonight I’m gonna chill and stretch a bit before I make the big leap. I’ve been putting my own health at risk for some time now since my Dad passed away. And I think I need to get back on it. I’ve smoked my last cigarette. Sorry to say that I’m on the electronic cigarette again, despite my research into the various environmental concerns regarding it. I’m scared the the stuff isn’t FDA approved, but it’s an alternative to smoking real cigarettes. I think, perhaps too, that I’ll get back on the patch as well. As that worked the last time I quit smoking.
Currently, I’m working on 4 campaigns for classes, 1 branding exploration, 1 midterm, and one real-life client. But shit, after this weekend in Crashvertising, I feel I can seriously get it anything done.
Crashvertising helped my realize that my life is going to be on hold for a while. That is, until I get my shit straight with school and career. It’s a fortunate thing though because I’m getting to do what I love, and that’s creating good ideas. Like Gary told us, I still have 10,000 hours to get good at something, and at this point in time, I need to get to work. Really feel confident in what I learned these two weeks. In that anything is possible, and as a creative, we all go through the same, painful processes and experiences. I hate to sound like such a cheerleading. But in the end, its about the work, and something I could look forward to in the next 10 to 20 years in building this. One day, I’ll be old, and I gotta do this now to make way for my future.
I don’t know exactly where I’m going to go from here. But I can tell you that it’s no where but everywhere. Feels like I’ve been waiting for this for a while now.
Now here some Tamia.
