Nothing to quite tempt fate like a post that says I’m back on track. I actually missed posting on Thursday because I was so hard at work on a Mochimochi Land project. There was some unclear communication about how polished of a storyboard we were sending to the client, and it led to lots of […]

Day 4: So Distracted

Posted on

I keep thinking about tomorrow’s job interview. I think that’s why today’s attempt at a run was not particularly successful. And why I don’t have any Blood Diamonds progress to share.

Trying to maintain a freelance career on nights and weekends became too much for me. I learned an important lesson about myself dyeing yarn. Even though I was completely […]
