I remembered one important point of websites, especially blogs, and that is to always keep the content fresh. I’d like to say that my lack of fresh material was due to my busy time as a designer but alas, being unemployed and looking for work can lead to many distractions. I did finally planned and went on the vacation that I needed to open my eyes and learn more about places other than California and indeed I have. I spent a week in Texas near Dallas catching up with an old middle school friend and an old high school friend who have been making a pretty decent living there for the past decade. My experience has concluded that home is where I can make the best living for myself. I’ve been couped up in California for so long I was blind to give other places a chance. I am now back on the job hunt, stronger than ever, never holding myself back. I remind myself that I am never bound by a place or by people and that I can embrace other places fitting to my living needs and goals.
Ok. So I’ve been guilty at times for not bringing a sketchbook with me. Sometimes we forget or we’re just plain lazy. Make it more a habit to carry it with you. You mind is always teeming with ideas and when you’re out there, many things will visually impact you and invoke some sort of idea or inspiration.
Today was one of those days where having a sketchbook came in really handy. I was at Borders meeting with a couple of people when I spotted a young gentleman who have been serving in the Army. He was wearing this really kick ass army coat. I never knew that the Army issued such awesome threads.
