Yeah, so… I’m at work. On Monday, I felt a bit silly for coming back when I hadn’t gotten called, but hey, I felt guilty that I had run off at a critical time.
I needn’t have bothered. Apparently, a fourth person was hired in my brief absence. But it was still good to be back to my beloved RSS Feeds. I spent about an hour and a half clearing my mails, and going through my feeds. No small task, I tell you.
Tuesday morning, I felt especially good that we had a lot more work on our plates, and even though I wasn’t assigned the job I really wanted (re-design of the company site … I already had great plans for that, sigh), it felt good to be busy. But for some reason, I wasn’t inspired to do it, and at the end of the day I didn’t start it proper till about 2 (3 hours after I was given), when I plugged in my earphones and got at it.
This morning, I’m feeling rather motivated to once again work on my blog’s layout, but I can’t … cos I’m at work. Dammit. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking, I’ve been saying I would change it for AGES. I actually had something. But it took me so much time to design (thanks to NYSC), I got bored with it… Oops. So, it seems I may have to start from scratch. Again.
Don’t worry, it’s going to be worth the wait.
I’m also considering making a weekly comic (something I haven’t done in oh, 5 or 6 years)…. good idea?
I’m crazy mad with anticipation right now. I just want to do something CREATIVE. We were having a dry spell at work today (one of many), and I decided to explore my new Adobe Bridge CS3. It’s so cool. I’m not sure if it was working with the Internet connection, it probably was. But anyway, for all them designers out there, it’s a great place to look for inspiration and tutorials. Unfortunately, you have to install an Adobe product e.g. Photoshop or Dreamweaver to get it, and most of the links go online, so if you don’t have a moderately speedy connection, you may get impatient.
One of the sites that I found via the Bridge is The FWA -Favourite Websites Awards . Awesome site with some of the most creative flash sites you’re gonna see. Also, another fast Internet warning.
After some exploration and my usual daily browse of Deviantart’s design and interfaces section (take a gander at my GALLERY), I felt myself really itching to get back to my wild experimentations with design again. I haven’t really had that opportunity since I started work back in January, and sadly, most of the nice stuff I DO start end up hanging, for instance, Snow White Gets Even. It’s turning out to be one of the best paintings I’ve ever done, and definitely the friggin longest to complete.
I need like, a week off from work, going out, and whatever. Just me, Photoshop, some nice earphones to shut off the world and some food; bonding the way we were meant to. Sigh.
