Friday Thoughts

Right now, I have my blinds and windows open. It's an overcast day and the thunder keeps sounding. The dorm room above me has the windows open and is playing country music, Travis Tritt's 'It's a Great Day to Be Alive', and I thought to myself, "I'm happy to be right here."

A lot of times, I struggle with contentment. I want to know where I'm going to be in 10 years. I want to know the reason for lots of things happening in my life. But somehow this week I've had an overwhelming sense of peace and trust. (Ah! Now it's starting to rain!) I'm applying for the Graphic Design program and won't find out if I'm in until August. Trust me, if anything is to scare you...that will. The more and more I learn about design and the thought process behind it...the more and more I want this.

But for now, I'm going to pack up my supplies and head to the studio to work on yet another never ending project. But you know?

I'm happy to be here.

p.s. how do you like the new header? My friend, Sam, went crazy on illustrator and made this for me. I'm now officially 'Happy Camper' and I will be doing my best to make this blog a happy place for you to visit...whenever you feel apt to do so!

Stumbled across your blog the other day through some other ones and just wanted to say hi!
And boy you are making me miss those moments in college when everything seems right...war eagle and good luck with getting in to graphic design. :)

I can take or leave the new banner, but I will say I do really love the new profile pic. :)
