I'm Good...

Because I, I go for mine. I got to shine.

And as of yesterday, I'm throwing my hands way up in the sky.

I'm finally done. I can emerge from my hole victorious and with another degree. Thanks to all of my friends who put up with my sudden AWOL status in the most gracious of manners and to my fam who had to deal with me acting like a stranger in my own house.

I did it guys! Through mounds of work, projects galore, and outside hustles that would compare to those poor people on Design Star (gotta love it), I've done it. Cheers to me.

Welcome to graduation. And the real world grind.

Coming Up for Air

1 to the 2, 2 to the 3, 3 to the 4, then you gotta *BREATHE*

The song used to go so hard. Anyway...

I'm almost done with it. School is officially over on Monday and I'm only a test shoot and a lamp away from washing my hands of my second go round at education I have to pay for out of my pocket. It's been a crucial two weeks, but as of today, I've actually had the time to sit back and enjoy the day, make plans for the weekend, and act as if (school) work has not completely consumed me.

I mean, it has, but it's been for a good reason. The Emmys gift suite came out VERY nicely and I came away with a nice amount of free stuff as a result. My portfolio is officially done (for now), Armani is no more, and my graphic submittal for a concept Sony store received some great feedback.

People have resorted to making appointments to see me starting in 2010, but it was all worth it. Sad...but worth it.

I'm coming out of hiding this weekend, and dammit, I'm gonna go out. There's some listening party with free champagne and chocolate covered strawberries somewhere in the mix - cheap and sexy on a Sunday night. Oh yeah.

RANDOM NOTE: I finally sold the wedding dress. I should have hit up ebay the first time, sheesh. I figured I wasn't going to use it, so someone else should be able to benefit. Eh? Eh? Now I have to figure out what to do with this engagement ring that a certain someone asks about the status of but never actually comes to pick up. Now I could keep it in the little box it came with in a safe place...or I could...umm...find something more constructive (read: lucrative) to do with it.

Or I could just call him on the day we were going to get married on (it's 2 weeks from today...wow) and tell him I've sold it. That would be hilarious.

Decisions, decisions.

I'm tired as all get out.

As I sit here at 3:00am STILL prepping stuff for my portfolio and thinking about the millions of projects (or so it seems) that are due in the next 2 weeks, I just realized that I need to sleep sometime this week.

Today ain't the day, but let's hope I get to it eventually. Between the aforementioned portfolio, a computer rendered electronics store proposal, a lamp (that yours truly must construct), a forthcoming test shoot, and designing an Emmy's gift suite (YAY ME!!! It's probably the most legit thing I've done ALL YEAR), I'm tapped...almost tapped the heck out.

Jesus be a co-pilot.

I can't wait until all of this is over. Then I can have my real job and not worry about projects...




That almost made me laugh out loud. Delirium is setting in. *sigh*

Pray for me, ya'll. I just need to make it to the 24th in one piece and of sound mind.
