Loving: The opportunities that I’ve had after making the jump into self-employment. I’m learning about video, animation, email marketing, designing infographics and working with really amazing clients. This Monday is my 1-month mark! Maybe a celebration is in order.

Reading: Design is a Job by Mike Monteiro. I’m about halfway through and it really has be thinking about designing to solve problems vs designing for production services. I do believe that there can be a balance (especially when you’re earning your income) but I definitely am thinking. More on that later…

Watching: The Big Bang Theory (always).

Thinking about: I’m about to make some big changes to Show + Tell this weekend. So big that…it might not be called Show + Tell once Tuesday rolls around! I’ve never loved the name and it’s not really tied to my blog URL. Why not? I can do whatever I want! Plus, I want a responsive site. I read a lot of blogs on my iPhone and it’s so annoying when sites aren’t responsive.

Surprised by: Where did the summer go? But, really, I’m giddy for fall.

Making me sad: All the shootings. People need to stop killing each other. For real.

Making me happy: Cuddles with Desh, great conversations with Adam, working in a great studio, seeing my brother today, and dry roasted peanuts.

What are you up to? Feel free to copy this post and share or reply in the comment section! Thanks, Liz, for the inspiration! I’ll be back Tuesday with my 3 New Things for September!
