Hey there, friends! Can you believe it’s been months since we last caught up? Oh, the whirlwind of life! But hey, who hasn’t experienced some major changes over the past three years, am I right?
So, here’s the latest scoop: I’ve bid farewell to the university and embarked on an exciting new chapter with a smaller, but oh-so-ambitious and fast-paced, company. And guess what? The best part is that my new role is 100% remote! Let me tell you, that was a major factor that finally pushed me to make this leap. Don’t get me wrong, I adored my previous team, but in this digital age, there’s really no need for a web or digitally based team to be confined to a physical office space. It just doesn’t make sense. By embracing remote work, we can create happier employees with better work-life balance, not to mention it’s a greener choice as we move away from lengthy commutes and overpriced parking. It’s about time companies caught up with this social change, and I’m thrilled to see many of them making the shift.
I like to think of it as the evolution of technology, just like instant tellers or cell phones. Sure, there might be some initial resistance, but innovation always wins in the end.
Now, I must confess that I’ve been a bit lax on the digital art front lately. But fear not, my friends, for I haven’t abandoned it! I simply took a step back and enjoyed a break for a while. We also took the time to work on our yard, and I even ventured into the world of tomato-growing (and let me tell you, it’s been quite the adventure – I had a plant so dry, dead, but resilient that we called it the Tomato Stick). But now, I feel the creative itch returning, and I’m ready to dive back into Procreate and maybe even give Character Animator a whirl. Who knows what the next few weeks will bring? One thing’s for sure, though – I’ve been learning project management skills that I’m eager to apply to my own creative projects. It’s all about motivation and better time management, my friends.
Oh, and speaking of time management, I must confess that I’m trying to limit my Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Stardew Valley escapades. I mean, let’s face it, the world hasn’t improved much, has it? It’s tempting to bury ourselves in idyllic fantasy, but we must find a balance, right?
Anyway, enough about me! How are all of you doing? I hope life has been treating you well. Remember to take care of yourselves and find moments of joy amidst the chaos. And, of course, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading and joining me on this journey.
Mahalo, as always!
