Personal Development

My goodness. I can’t believe it’s been OVER a year since my last post. I’m terrible.

On the bright side, I am back, and I do have the best intentions to try to keep up with my design/creativity/inspiration blog more often. A LOT has happened since last year, and I won’t bore you with all those stories, but if you’re really that curious, check out my fitness blog aka Melanie’s Journey to Tinier Pants. The posts for that go all the way back to April 25th of this year, so that should be good enough, right?

ImageAs of now, I am trying desperately to figure out my life’s goals and passions. They’ve been reignited by my involvement with Nick’s animation school adventures and my getting asked to be part of a review committee for the advanced graphic design students of my alma mater.

I’ve been my own biggest obstacle. Why do we all tend to do that to ourselves? I’ve wanted to learn more about graphic design, lettering, and typography, but when I begin the process, I never follow through or I get too easily distracted by life’s ups and downs. Granted, this year has had its seemingly UNfair share of ups and downs, but why does it take me so long to get back on track when the dust settles?

I’ve been searching like mad and trying to figure out how to balance it all. I’ve recently become a huge fan of The Skool of Life blog, I’ve been watching countless inspirational videos online, and I’ve been trying to step out of my comfort zone at least once every day…

One thing I’ve done that I’m pretty happy about is that I’ve created myself a Behance profile. I’ve failed multiple attempts of creating my own website, and I think that Behance is my best temporary solution for sharing my work since I’m really NOT a web designer by any means. At least not yet. My mind isn’t closed to being more web savvy, in fact, it’s pretty much necessary in the design industry, but for now, I’m happy to finally have a way to share my latest projects with people in an easy and well-organized way. What’s better is that I can even post work I’m doing that’s still in progress so that I can get feedback from other designers/friends.

That’s all for now, friends. I hope to be back again sooner than later!
