Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

At least I hope that's the case. I've been insanely busy lately because I made a big life decision. Hopefully you'll be happy to see this blog updated.

I made a plan! I'm not the type of person who sets goals for my year or my life. I may have tentative things rolling around in my head of what I'd like to do or see happen, but rarely is it anything concrete.

I've decided to go to nursing school! Feel free to take a minute, as almost everyone in my life has said, huh?

I've been a graphic designer for ten years now; that's really hard for me to admit. It makes me feel old and somewhat seasoned as professional. My career path has not looked anything like I thought it ever would, and it doesn't accurately reflect who I am as a designer. Don't get me wrong; I LOVE designing and photography! I'm actually hoping that in this new career, I'll have more time for both of those things. I also want to travel; there's a great big world out there that I want to discover and capture with my camera.

Above all of those things though, I find myself wanting to be able to help people. I feel like this will give me that opportunity and open up some other doors to serve.

I've been taking classes this semester and working full time, which is why I have absolutely no time for blogging. :) Lord willing, I'll survive these prerequisites and be admitted to nursing school for the Fall of 2013. Check out the image below of my in Biology Lab.

Despite not having much time, I have tons of images and logos that I'm want to share. Stayed tuned to see what I've been up.
