freelance diary // 1

Working for myself is something that I've always known I wanted to do. Ever since I got my first job, at least. The thought of not setting my own hours, and not being able to have the flexibility that I need to stay inspired and motivated is really unwelcoming to me. I've really been on my game to get things moving since the new year began. I'm never really inspired by the new year, and have never been a person that makes resolutions or anything.

Weekly Freelance Notes:

:: I registered for Erika Lyremark's Morning Whip. It starts the 13th, and I'm nervous/excited/so ready to be whipped. I've heard nothing but good things, so I'm hoping I get a lot out of it!

:: I still have a few pieces to add to my online portfolio. I really want to have some pieces actually on hard copy (like business cards, or a lookbook) and take a photo of them, so you can get more of an idea of what they look like in life, rather than just digitally

:: Need to put together my pre-design playbook, an idea I lovingly stole from Alexandra Franzen.

:: Time management is going to get a little crazy once my PHP class starts next week!

How is everyone's week going? Wish me luck beginning Erika's class!


  1. i think it's really great that you're doing what you love and you knew that freelancing was what you wanted to do. i know of a lot of people... well bloggers... who freelance and to be honest, i get a little jealous sometimes. what i would give to wake up at 8:55 and get working at 9! i'm still figuring out what kinda of career i want to make for myself.. i'd love to dip into graphic/web design... but i'm just an enthusiast, NOT a professional. not even near. but maybe one day... one day.

  2. also! let me know how your PHP class goes. i code on and off, and i'd love to know what you think about it!
