Everyday should be a celebration about the moments that make up our lives.

Monthly Archives: September 2010

     This last week has been very exciting for me. I’ve made some crucial decisions for my future and am  well on my way to implementing these decisions. I also spent some time this week sitting down with a Graphic Designer and we talked about things I should be doing. This was very encouraging because I’m doing a lot of the things he suggested already. I also went to a meeting of TAGA the Technical Association of Graphic Arts and am looking forward to going back for a second week!
     Things seem to be falling into place and it feels GREAT! I want to take a moment to thank all my family and friends who have been a great support for me in taking these first steps. I cannot fail with such a strong support network to back me up! I cannot wait till I have my own copy of the adobe software and can spend most of my free time working on projects. But for this coming week I am planning on focusing most of my time and effort to learning all I can about CSS and website design. I’ve started laying out a design for my personal portfolio but it is far from ready and is very basic.
      Wish me luck on my next week of adventures! I’m looking forward to sitting in a coffee shop somewhere working on my designs and sipping coffee!

     Does anyone ever wonder how much the timing of events in one’s life affect the ability to operate? I can’t help but feeling that way today. My name is Michaela (sounds like 

michael – a) and I am aspiring to be a creative professional in the design field. I began this journey after graduating from college and being totally and utterly lost.
     Exactly how is anyone lost after graduating from college you might ask? Well its purely simple I want to be happy and proud of the job and career I have for my life. My decisions up until a few months ago were unfruitful in my one solid goal for my life. So I began searching for my lifelong career. After weeks of traversing through the Internet, my past experiences, and my hobbies one major career stood shining like a beacon drawing me ever closer to my fate. Graphic design.
     I am truly excited now and look forward to what I will learn along my path. However, getting back to the first sentence of this post. My freshman and sophomore year in college I worked on a website as an ongoing project I had help and found it extremely fascinating but I just didn’t get it on my own. I struggled with CSS documents and struggled with remembering how to tag and html page. But now its like the fog has cleared on my journey and I am ready to face the day because bits and pieces are falling together and the knowledge that I held previously and my new knowledge are meshing together beautifully.
     My hopes for this blog are two-fold. I hope to record my journey so that years down the road I can look back and laugh at the peaks and valleys of venturing out into the great unknown held and also to help anyone by offering my own perspectives on tidbits that I come across or struggles I have.
