This is a great internship. Take my word for it haha.
I’d apply. If I didn’t live all the way in California. I hate my job at the UPS store. They have a graphic designer and I feel like my skills are going to slowly disappear. I need motivation to do something with my life in graphic design -_-
It’s nearing the end of January. And I am no where near accomplishing any of my New Year’s resolutions.
I suppose I should just quit, right? Wrong.
1. Don’t give up now. You’ve only been working on your goals for twenty-nine out of 356 days. You’ve spent a little less than 9% of the year working towards changing your life.
2. Be honest with yourself. Who are these goals for? Are they actually goals you can work to accomplish? Do you need to have mini-goals to get to that one big goal? There’s no wrong way to creating the life you want to live.
3. Seek clarity. “Aha!” moments don’t just come from doing nothing. They are the result of doing. Doing work, having fun, or even making mistakes. The goals you’ve made for the year may not be the goals you have at the end of the year. That’s okay. Make adjustments along the way.
Life is short.
Oh hey guys I contributed to the holstee blog.
"if you are struggling in your art, it may mean your creativity does not trust you. how many times has it begged you to be free (out of love), and how many times have you told it no (out of fear.) nothing will flow until you heal this relationship."
