drafting... so lost.

this drafting section is taking me for a hard ride. i am not understanding or feeling like i am doing well in this section at all. i hate not being able to get this, but it really has me confused. my lines all seem off, my pencil lines are way to dark... hell, i am even having trouble picking a song to use.

it has me really stressed too. i have been working at my job, and trying to do this as well. i feel kinda pulled in 900 directions. my mind is all over the freakin' place right now.

the paper-leaf project, the dubbed title i have given it,  i feel much more relaxed and understanding of. i feel that i have a much more "creative" mind then a "technical" mind. believe that is why drafting letters is hard to me. i am already knowing now though, that this is where i am going to have to put extra practice too.

i have put in all i can for this evening i do believe. off to bed... back to the grind in the morning.

i began work on letter drafting today. i can see possible problems here. i have never been an amazing writer when it comes to letters, i have always had "chicken-scratch" and i am still having problems with drawing straight lines, even with a ruler. i am holding out though. this is where i want to be, and this is what i want to do.

corny as it may sound... i am carrying this idea into my paper-leaf project. i like playing with the organic growing from the man-made. i have some beginning ideas that i hope to take even more in-depth.

big changes... so short of time

well, the first week of school is in full gear now... and i am feeling it. this project idea due here, this design idea due there... whew... go, go go. i am not exactly having the easiest time keeping my pace, but i am trying, and content with trying harder and harder. I created my header tonight. tomorrow morning all can see. i am pleased with the design. i still feel i need lots of work with drafting. it's getting late. time to sleep and prepare for tomorrow.

how i find my mojo, man.

when i am looking for something to give my a spark of genius, or in better terms, to inspire me, i look to many things. i find it in friends, nature, television, fashion, music, art and anything else around me that i see beauty in. beauty and inspiration come from so many things... my eyes have to always be open and looking. nothing should be missed.
