I am deciding to take the exam for the Association of Registered Graphic Designers, which is exciting yet intimidating. I have most of the studying material and started taking notes. I just have to send my application and my portfolio to the Association to be scheduled for the exam. Hopefully my portfolio looks okay, I did have someone else look at it, but I should make some adjustments before I send it.
Since I am going to be busy with the exam, my contract work, and my new studio, I have to make some sacrifices. First of all is that I can only attend the evening karate classes since I don't have time to be running back and forth between my house and into town. Other sacrifices are my more personal hobbies such as drawings, poetry, guitar, and an old website I was rebuilding. It's sad, but they have to be made.
The paint job in my studio looks great, it's just the floor that needs to be done. There is nasty stuff on the floor and it will be a nightmare to clean up. @_@
