brain fried.

if you're thinking about going into graphic design, be prepared for your brain to turn into mush.


i officially feel brain fried after this last week. every single one of my classes decided to have a major assignment due this week plus i did all the typesetting for my mom's book plus my friend just launched a website i'm doing marketing for (more about these later because they are projects i'm SO excited about), PLUS the things i like to do to relax/unwind usually involve the computer - like blogging or music video watching.

but now i've hit the point where i want to just lay on the floor and stare at the ceiling for awhile and not think about margins or vector images or thumbnailing or really anything (which is precisely what happened for about twenty minutes yesterday in the photos above when i should have been preparing for the oral presentation i gave today). i don't know if i'm gonna have more time for this sort of mindlessness this weekend but you know what i am making time for...snowboarding.

brighton opens tomorrow and you better believe we are going to be there very first thing. we're shooting for the first chair of the season. and right now, absolutely nothing sounds better than inhaling crisp, fresh air and riding down a mountain with friends and music and ninja suits.

hope you all have a very happy, very relaxing weekend :)

  1. Oh Shayla I feel you. I work in graphic design/marketing all day, 9-5, and then come home to unwind to my blog and my photography. By the time the weekend hits I am so zoned out I don't know the difference between my lefts and my rights.

    Hope your frazzled head cools down for the weekend. Enjoy yourself and try to relax :)

  2. oh girl, thank goodness for fresh air. between writing and graphics classes, i feel wooooorn out at the end of every week, too. my thursday nights involve me & the couch on a very lazy, much needed date.. before a weekend of homework and adventuring around in-between to clear my mind. exciting projects for you though!! xo

  3. I hated the weeks in college where it felt like I had no room to breathe. They are the worst! I am glad you are taking time to relax. Rest your brain for a while :) Have a great weekend!!

  5. Sending you peace of mind and relaxation! But snowboarding?!?! I am SO jealous! I am a skier and I have been craving a ski trip all summer. It doesn't look like it is in the cards for me this year. I would love it if you took an extra run down the mountain for me!

  6. Wow. You've just summed up my week! I hear you. I have learned that I have to MAKE myself take breaks. I, too, love blogging and listening to music.. and doing other things that requite a computer, however, my mind will blow up if I don't get up and do something else. :P

  7. This is me right now. I've had sooo many big project/big boring adult things to do on the computer this week. When I go to relax I turn to my computer as well but this week I've had such an aversion to the computer. It's actually been really nice to relax just by staring at the ceiling with some soft music going. I hope you get some free time this next week!
