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 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.
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:
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.
