Mine were paid, but I don't know that they had to be by nature though. The program was great for me though since it paid more than working minimum wage somewhere, not to mention that I was doing stuff that I could put on my resume, plus the work and classes were coordinated so that there wasn't an overwhelming amount on my plate.

I'm pretty pumped, I've been a huge fan of the Sketchbook Project for a good couple of years, but due to being a poor student and then unemployed, I could never participate; but this year I am! You should too! http://www.arthousecoop.com/projects/sketchbookproject

This is kinda neat! Could lead to some interesting meetings at coffee shops and bars.

I do have to admit to this making me sad at the same time. What ever happened to just striking up conversation at public gathering spots? Theres something to be said about that as well. Lets just make friends the old fashioned way!

If i find most of my business online via social media and i blog and utilize social media and guide people (not in the business sense) on how to use social media. That makes me a candidate to apply for a social media position for a school right? I think so! Good cause I'm applying to one! haha!

Yeah, don't give up! If you give up, I'm going to poop in your shoe. Do you want to have that all squishin' between your toes? No? Then I guess you know what you're going to have to do....

But seriously, it's rough... Yes... But hopefully it'll all work out soonventually. If you really want something, don't let anything keep you from it.

Story
Tagline
I'm an avid doodler, coffee & beer snob in-training, uncoordinated sports enthusiast, bad reality tv junkie and social media enthusiast!
Introduction
Hello! I'm a Designer & illustrator. I am an ENFJ. A graduate from The University of the Arts, a coffee & craft beer aficionado. I can usually be found drinking a good brew (coffee, tea or a microbrew), perusing design blogs or looking for uniquely designed ampersands.

I like clean lines, subtle texture with a little bit of whimsy. I think about paper, screen sizes, readability, UX and how I can break the grid without breaking the grid!
Bragging rights
I must admit, I am pretty awesome!
