So like should I start posting here again? Can I be truly honest here. I feel like to be truly honest I can only tell it to a bunch of strangers.

I'm finally starting to feel useful and good at something. I finally finished the last web design project I was working on. It's here if you want to check it out. She's really happy with it and has been blogging about it around the interwebs. From that I've got one person interested in my web design services. She's asked for a quote and I think I gave her a pretty good deal considering how much others are charging for web design. Also I don't want to break her wallet. She's an indie author and I'm pretty sure they don't make a lot of money. Yea, I'm nice like that. If it were a company I would definitely charge more.

I'm delving into the world of blog design because that seems to be the future of websites right now. I've been researching how much good designers get paid for wordpress websites...anywhere between $2000 to $10000! PER PROJECT! So yea, I think that's what I want to try to specialize in.

I've been bidding on projects on online job boards. It took a while but I finally got one to bite. It was a simple job that didn't have much to do with coding or design. But that's good because I wasn't getting any projects before because I hadn't won any. Once I finish this one she will give me a review and hopefully that will get more people to take a chance with me. There are a lot of foreigners on that site so I should have the advantage of working from the states.

I'm starting on a new project. I'm redesigning this website. I've already sent her my ideas for the front page and she almost hyperventilated through email she liked it so much, don't know if that's possible but she did. It made me feel good. YAY!!

I start school in March, so I'm excited about that. I was able to transfer 34 credits from three rivers, so that cuts down almost 3 semesters. AND because I'm a military wife I get the military discount until he gets out. So for 2 semesters I only pay 1/2 the tuition.

Nothing else really has been happening in my life besides that. It's probably pretty boring for everyone else but I love it!

Hey guys! I'm new to this community, I'm a freelance web designer and thought I'd shamelessly promote myself while also trying to help out anyone in need and also getting some insight from fellow web designers on things I may be having troubles with.

Check out my portfolio and blog!

I've finnally finished the Nuka Cola design on my tshirt.

It took me two tries to get it to look decent, and I ruined a perfectly good shirt, but this one came out exactly how I wanted it to.

Also I've pretty much finished my online portfolio. So you should check it out.

I hate watching previews for upcoming movies. I used to like them, but now I hate them. Most, but the exceptional few, pretty much tell what the whole plot is going to be. Seriously? That's a preview? You just showed me the whole damn movie, and now...if I'm not an idiot, I won't spend $11 to go see it. They are also a telling sign to what kind of people are expected to go see that kind of movie. The reason I wanted to go see District 9 really badly was because the previews didn't tell me much and I wanted to find out what happened. And it was a pretty decent mainstream movie, I wonder how many cocks had to be sucked to get that one through. After I walked out of the movies actually PLEASED with the way I spent my money this time, I over heard these two hamhawks say "that was just a cheap version of Transformers."

I lose faith in humanity little by little each day, and that was my daily dose of it.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? Transformers had the emotional depth of a rock. When I saw the first one, because I couldn't bear to have to sit through the second one, I got scared because I had a little bit of a seizure from all the explosions. And that's it. Excuse me, but I like a little character development, a little emotional depth, and I don't want to be spoon fed the plot the whole way through. My hope was that maybe they were just talking about the special effects. And they would be wrong AGAIN because District 9 was able to make a believable world out of 1/5 the budget of Transformers.

But I digress, people just want to go see a movie to get boners from explosions and hot chicks. Go see an indie film if you want that shit.

So I've started to plan out a little business for myself. I've got myself a web host so I can put up a website for it. These are my steps:



01. Build my website. (so far this is all I have, let me know what you think of my logo)
02. Go to local business websites, and if I think I can do a better job than what they have I will leave them my info. HOPEFULLY they will call me back. I need at least one for now, I'll even do the first one free just to build up my portfolio.
03. There are a bunch of websites that have freelance jobs, and I will apply to as many of those as I can.
04. I conversed with Scott, he said if I want to be more on the design front of webdesign I should probably learn Javascript and JQuery. So much for this PHP book that I just bought. (for those of you who don't know PHP and Javascript  basically do the same thing just different languages)

All I need is for someone to take a chance with me because I don't really have anything to show for myself. (Except my website when I have it up) Then I can get this on the road.

What if? What if? What if?

Now STOP!
Stop imagining shit. The best and the worst outcome is really all in your mind. What happens happens. There may be a reason for all of this or there may not. So what...

All I know for sure is that I am here. I'm here to experience whatever I can get, good fortune, or a black eye.

So what if I'm tired and bored (peaceful?), it's not the end of the world (or it is). Mundaneity (that's not in the dictionary, but you get the idea) is a gift. It's not maximum extreme excitement but at least it's not chaos, and that's how you know everything will be okay.

In the back of every peaceful moment there is the possibility of complete chaos. The fact that most of my life hasn't been lived in chaos is a miracle and a blessing if I ever saw one.
