I’ve Been Wondering

For the last year and a half I’ve been in a job that doesn’t really fit what I want to be doing. I’ve been unhappy for a while.  I come home in a bad mood, I don’t really enjoy most of my day, and I feel like I’ve somehow gone off track from where I was heading in my career goals.

But.

Last Thursday I was called into my boss’ office and told that she had to make cuts, and being as I’m one of the newest employees in the department, I was out of a job here. Admittedly, I had been wondering if this was coming for months. It wasn’t a horrible thing to hear, and I really wasn’t stressing too much (it was odd though, I’ve never been laid off).

The good news, though, is that they found a position for me in another area of the company. For the next two months I’ll be working on the branding for a division of the company. I’m pretty excited, and am looking forward to next Monday.

The slightly bad news, if you didn’t catch it, is that the position is only for two months. So I am making plans to find something else. That means going somewhere else. And I’m concentrating on Savannah, Georgia.

The next few weeks should bring some interesting changes and hopefully some more good news. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Been Busy

It’s been an interesting week or so. I’ve been working on designing a website with about a week turnaround. That’s the design up there. It needs a lot of work but I’m not worrying about it too much since I don’t have much of a timeline to work on it.

I will be driving down to Jacksonville Beach this weekend to attend my Uncle Terry’s memorial service. I’ll probably spend about 14 hours in the car. It’ll be good to see my family and to hear stories about him.

If I didn’t have so much to do, I’d write more. There’ll be another entry tomorrow seeing as it’s been 6 days since the last.

Cameras

A couple years ago my uncle Ed gave me a worn out cardboard box full of old cameras, flashes, and film. I’ve gone through them a little and looked up some info, but have recently started to come up with some sort of idea for putting together a document with images of the cameras and other equipment and all of the relevant info I can find. It should be an interesting project to work on. First, though, I really want to build some sort of light box for taking photos.

Couldn’t Sleep

Couldn'tSleep2

Last night I couldn’t sleep thanks to a horrible ingrown toenail.  Before I woke up at 1:30, I had a dream that I was cutting it out on my own.  After I woke up I was up for hours.

Design Stuff, Music Stuff, Job Stuff, Exercise Stuff

I did a new design for my portfolio website and I really like it. It’s a lot better than what had been up there. I need to add more samples of my work, but that won’t take long at all. You might have noticed I changed the look of my blog, and now they look somewhat similar. I like the continuity.

Speaking of my portfolio website, I’ve sent out another huge round of resumes. I must have sent 100 applications/resumes out. Let’s hope something turns up, because I certainly need a new job.

There aren’t any big plans for this weekend, but I’m ok with that. I’ve got a new schedule for working out and running, so Saturday should be a long run, and I’ve been missing trail running so I’ll probably head into Pisgah to go on a long one. Plus, I need to start saving some money for this “spring break” thing that’s being planned. A long weekend in Florida staying in a place for free near the beach sounds great.

What do I do at work?

I’m sure you’re all wondering.  And thanks to the magic of digital photography and the internet, I’m going to show you.

First off, I actually do do work.  (haha do do)

Secondly I do things like draw stick figures, which I post places like so:

These stick figures generally look like this:

Take a nice long look at that last one.

Ok, it’s time to go.  What a day: three posts on here!

I’m famous, and other news

A few things for you today.

Evan and I went to a Teenage Bottlerocket show in Laramie while I was out there for Christmas with the family. During the show, they filmed part of their new music video for In The Basement off of their new album, Warning Device. When they show the crowd shots, I’m on the far left and Evan is behind me (he has a beard and glasses).

In other news, I’ve finished the artwork for the new Jerks CD EP. I really like it and think it’s some of the best album artwork I’ve done. I tried to keep it really simple, and I think it worked.

CD cover, Insert, Back

We’re having them printed professionally, and we should also have our t-shirts made by the end of the week. We’ll have stuff to sell at our show in Georgia on the 16th. Also, there’s a chance (which I’ve been told is about 98% confirmed) that we’re going to play a show with Teenage Bottlerocket and the Copyrights. They’re two amazing bands and basically what I’ve been listening to nonstop for the last few months.

It’s supposed to get up to 70 degrees here today. I can’t wait to go on a run.

Last of all, I’m capturing all of the video from my drive last Tuesday. I should hopefully have this edited and up for you to watch by this weekend.
