So I checked my domain name registration and what do you know – my personal domain and portfolio got expired and vanished into thin air. That site served as my online business card and when I inquired about me taking it back because I failed to check the expiration date, *poof* they flashed me with a bill of $300… WHAT?!
Well, today I “surprisingly” found myself attending the “CSI Nights” event of the I love Iloilo team by Gawad Kalinga – I was listening to three amazing speakers and let’s just say I got inspired of what they were discussing. After the forum and the little chit-chats, I came across a college friend, Tracy. Yeah. Small city! So I said “Hi.” – technically I said her name… then for a brief moment, I disappeared like a pro ninja!
Some children in Cauayan, Negros. – “Do I inspire you, kids?” hahaha!
This week I got a lot of calls from my clients regarding their design requests and mock-ups. Oooh! My phones were constantly ringing and in every call, I would to take that “deep breath” just to have the courage to talk to them. haha! The best thing about my job is that I could use my creativity to construct websites for those who are aiming to set up their company’s web presence. Well, online presence is a “must-have” nowadays. The bad thing is – deadlines! Boooooo!
Let me walk you through my “web designer” life because I rarely talk about it (well, there’s nothing much to talk about anyway) haha!
Whether being stuck with a mountain of design jobs or a simple case of “I feel so darn sleepy,” coffee really helps! Need I say more? I’ve been bombarded with “responsibilities” this week and not to mention the earthquake that hit us last Monday! – I am in dire need of caffeine in my system right now just to compensate for everything that is happening. Lol! Continue reading
So I got up early in the morning with high hopes of finishing everything in my “to-do-list” practically enthusiastic and ready to whip some pieces of art (and by art I mean websites, posters, and other related designs). Imagining this scene is quite the little perfect day everyone is dreaming of completing. But with a brush of procrastination – the seven things in your paper (well, in my paper actually) will result to zero productivity. Boo-you-sudden-emergence-of-crisis!
It was such a shame looking back. Me shutting the heck up and not standing up for myself when persuaded to take the course (Nursing) that I ultimately despised four years back. I mean, if you could redo your decision, would you opt for another course that you are sure that you’ll be passionate about? I do! I’d love to go back and pat myself on the back and say “I’m glad you made that decision.”
I grew up with a traditional Filipino family, surrounded by visual artists, businessmen, doctors, and nurses. Oh and I admit that I don’t blame my parents for choosing a course that could probably help me with my future (let me earn dollars and support them). I should be thanking them for helping me decide. Maybe four years ago I was clueless of the possibilities in life and Nursing was a step closer to what they call “Greener Pastures” which BTW I am not interested in. Just to be clear of my intentions. Haha! Continue reading
