a belated spring cleaning


Hello faithful followers. Over the next few days you may notice a few things shifting around, links not working, et cetera. I'm attempting to dust away the cobwebs and spit polish the ol' blog. What happened to me? I won't go into too much detail, but I'm sure that many of you know that being unemployed can take a toll on even the strongest optimism. Having a blog was a double-edged sword, keeping me in the loop in the design community but also reminding me of everything I'm missing from employment. I had to step back. Lately I've been gardening and rock climbing, so it must be the chemicals balancing themselves out, or dopamine circulating, or whatever, that's inspiring me to get back into blogging.

Thank you for hanging around, and I hope to see you again soon!

Kat, I can be totally honest when I say that I know how you feel... I was out of work for more than a year and a half before finding a full-time job eight months ago. I had the ups and downs, and at one point far into my redundancy I started feeling pretty good and trying to take advantage of all the time I had... spending time reading in the park, taking nice back road drives (when I had the gas money!), working on craft projects, and of course, trying to do some blogging. Hang in there, and we are very glad to have you back in blogland!
