Jewelry by Hand

Tag Archives: school

 

 

I’m going back to school tomorrow, I’m really excited about that, but I’m worried about losing the progress I have made in my jewelry business. I am taking a class called the multiple in jewelry and metals and I am also taking the intro to fibers course and an art history course.

I am going to try and manage my time better and plan into my days time to work on the business and times for school work. I have been making jewelry everyday lately, here are a few new pieces I have made, let me know what you think of them. I am planing on doing a photoshoot soon for things to list on etsy.

My dog Coco, isn’t she so cute

My first week of classes was crazy, I ended up dropping two classes, my photography class and my portfolio class, and I added another class, an art history class, women directors. I was taking on much more than I can handle. A lot of other stuff happened, but I don’t really want to share all of it here. I have been dealing with a lot of issues and had to come to terns with some stuff. The day that would have been my dad’s 55th birthday was Saturday and that triggered a lot of issues for me.

I am going to take a short break of my business, I will start to focus more on it after I’ve got my feet on the ground and am more used to being in school.


here's my school schedule

here’s my school schedule

School starts tomorrow! I can’t wait. Here is my school schedule, it is a very weird schedule, Mondays and Wednesdays will be wide open, but on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays i will be really busy. I don’t think I will be able to post on my blog everyday, but I will try and post every Monday, Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday. I don’t know how much attention I can pay to my business this semester, because I am going to be full time.

Yesterday I got a cold and was in bed the whole day. I was productive because I was on the internet though using social media and promoting my business all day. I hope I will be all better by tomorrow, when classes start. I’m still a little under the weather right now, but am feeling better than yesterday. I got a haircut on Friday, here’s a pic:

here's a picture of me all made up for dinner.

I really like my new haircut what do you think?


Well today was my second day of school and I think I might have bitten off more than I can chew.  I am overwhelmed right now. I am enjoying all of my classes so far, but I don’t think I can keep up if I keep going at this pace.  I need to figure out what I need to concentrate on and manage my time better.  I need to figure out a plan.

I was planning on taking 3 studio classes, what was I thinking?  I am going to have to drop one class, but I am unsure as to which class would be the best one for me to drop.  I think I am going to drop my jewelry and Metals class because I think it involves the most work and would be the most time consuming outside of class, I think.  I am conflicted about dropping jewelry and metals because it was the class that I was looking forward to taking the most.  I can still take it in the spring though, and will probably get more out of it when I take it then as opposed to with all of my graphic design courses.  I was thinking of dropping my typography class before I went to it today, but it turns out that the teacher is really cool and I know someone who is taking it already, and I think that it could turn into my favorite class of the semester.  I guess I already have made my decision.  Writing it out here helped me to decide because it clarified my thoughts.

I have many goals this semester and by dropping this one class, hopefully I can meet them.  My goals this semester are:

1. Get A’s in all of my classes,

2. Lose weight

3. Work on my business/sell stuff

4. Continue my blog

If I am going to be part-time I can probably devote some time to my etsy store and my business that I would have been unable to do otherwise.  Speaking of my etsy store I listed an item last night, check it out here.  I will write more about my classes later, right now I am going to sleep because I have to wake up at 8:00 am tomorrow morning.  My class doesn’t start until 11:00 am, but I want to work out, and I need to set a precedent if I want to get in shape this semester.  I have to take the bus so I have to leave around 9, which will give me enough time to get to school, by about 9:45, I hope, and then workout and shower, which I am budgeting an hour for, which takes me to 10:45, which gives me 15 min to get across campus to the lecture hall where my class is held.

Let me know what you think about my blog.  I look forward to hearing from my readers.


Hey nothing that interesting happened today, but I thought I would write a blog entry anyway.  I am really excited because school starts tomorrow!  I am really looking forward to going back to school.  It is funny, I never used to feel this way for my first degree, that must mean that I am on the right track.

Today I went shopping for school supplies and I hope that I have everything that I need.  I went to jo-ann fabrics looking for sketchbooks and I saw this in a magazine:

It looks a lot like what I make (the rock part at least) doesn’t it?

Well this is going to be a short post, as I can’t think of anything else to write about.  I am going to have a hard time sleeping tonight, I can just tell.  I am both excited and nervous at once.
