  1. Let me start by saying this: I am not some thing about me being a daft punk fan girl. But lately, I’ve spent a lot of time mulling over the concept of success. I have spent so much of my life pushing myself to the very limits of my sanity in the name of self improvement and success- to be better, to do more. On nights full of wishing and what ifs, I find I need a little perspective and to remind myself that persistence pays off…. eventually….. hopefully.

I’m not sure whether or not to be impressed or horrified at what my daily schedule has become. The photo posted above was uploaded to my Instagram at 11 a.m. Sunday morning. Since this photo was taken I’ve slept a grand total of 7 hours; it’s Tuesday. 
There is no doubt in my mind that I was meant to be a visual communicator after weeks like this. After putting in roughly 40hr weeks in a cramped windowless Student Media office on top of being a full time students. Balancing these two very serious full time jobs has definitely taken its toll, but that’s what it takes to make the magazine happen. I can’t wait to see the final product…. you know, as long as I manage to design my entire portfolio book, 60 variations of three logos, write a philosophy paper and remember to breathe with the remainder of my week.  To say that this week has been a challenge to every creative bone in my body is an understatement.

Re-blog this post for a chance to get in for free! My friend John Francis is missing this show because he’s currently deployed, and he bought a couple tickets for me to give away. I’ll pick two people at random who re-post this flyer. Click the event page to find out how else you can get a free ticket.
